b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.6 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no positive reviews in the last 12 months)
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 4.75 for Sable Cottage Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.75
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:
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.
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.
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 1.564 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sable Cottage Nursing Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 7.8 positive Reviews (39 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.8 Target = 0.128 , then divided by 2 = 0.064

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Helen B (Daughter of Resident) on Sunday 12 June 2016. Relates to June 2016.
My mum is currently a resident of Sable Cottage. Both my parents have been in care homes (good and less good) so I feel qualified to write a review. Mum went to Sable Cottage after hospital discharge. It's a very long way from where I live. If Sable Cottage wasn't such a great place I would have moved mum nearer to me, but I can see how much she benefits from being there. Finding a good care home is so hit and miss, I just wouldn't want to take the chance.
Mum is very elderly, frail and has advanced dementia. She gets wonderful care at Sable Cottage and the staff are fantastic. The staff help mum in a one to one way all the time. The managers are excellent. It might not be the most glamorous, showy care home in the world but it is full of love. It also has a very mixed group of residents and links with the local community so it has a strong sense of community. The staff don't judge our family because we can't get to see mum as often as we'd like. I thoroughly recommend Sable Cottage.
