Overview

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Alt Park is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Alt Park in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.421 for Alt Park is calculated as follows: ( (49 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.421

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Alt Park is based on 8 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 7 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

9.4 Alt Park has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.421) from 8 Reviews

Our Mum moved into Alt Park in 2014. We can't recommend it highly enough. The staff are so caring treating everyone as individuals, catering for all their needs. It's so hard when a loved one has to move into a nursing home, are we making the right choice?. Well, Alt Park was certainly the right place for our lovely mum. She is very happy and content despite having severe Alzheimers. Special mention to the Deputy Manager always approachable and friendly to both residents and family.

The home is clean and tidy and the residents are very well looked after with regular activities for them to enjoy. They let the family know if there are any problems with her health or any minor injuries that occur. The staff are caring and take interest in the residents and their families. The rooms are basic but are always up to a high level of cleanliness.

After a rocky start coming here, Mum has settled really well. The home covers all of her needs. The staff are approachable and hands on. I believe she's happy and gets the best care possible.

My Aunty has been here just over a year, and it's the happiest she has been. She thinks she is in an all-inclusive hotel. Aunty was very very angry and upset when she arrives and we saw first hand how staff cared for her under an extreme situation. They settled her gently, whispering and stroking her until she relaxed and fell asleep. The care continues to the same standard and we fell at ease and without worry because of the high standard of care.
