  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.897 for St Catherine's is calculated as follows: ( (53 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 58 Ratings = 4.897

  • 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 3.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Catherine's is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.250

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

8.4 St Catherine's has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.397) from 5 Reviews

On accompanying our auntie to St Catherine's we were greeted with a homely atmosphere and pleasant surroundings. The friendly and professional staff showed care and compassion dignity and respect to my auntie during her short time in the home. She received excellent personal care and her room was very clean and comfortable. As a family we were updated regularly and sensitively regarding my auntie's condition and were offered refreshments and a place of privacy as and when it was needed. Thank you to everyone at Catherine's.

My mother was a resident of St Catherine's for just under a year, up to her death at the age of 94 in March 2017. While she was there, she was suffering from vascular dementia and was confused for much of the time and fundamentally did not want to be in a care home. Her life there was made tolerable by the kindness and competence of the staff. My wife and I worked in the NHS for many years, and learnt to recognise well-ordered care: friendly, open staff attitudes; knowledge of the individual; routine that was flexible and fitted around the individual; scrupulous cleanliness and a comfortable, very well-maintained environment; varied and well-organised social events; and effective liaison with GP services. This is how all care homes for this client group should be run.

Amazing care home, compassionate, caring and competent staff. My Mum has been a resident here for 2 years

My sister and I can rest in the knowledge that Mum is kept lovely and clean, happy, given lots of cuddles from staff and has plenty of food and beverages.

I would not hesitate to highly recommend St Catherine's to anyone looking for a care home.
