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.

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Harry H (Son-in-law of Resident) on Friday 30 October 2015. Relates to September 2015.
My mother in law was accepted into Longton nursing and residential home in March 2015,she had recently lost her husband to cancer and she suffers from progressive dementia, she still believes she can do everything for herself but the harsh reality is she can't as her couple of falls and hospital admissions prior to her move to Longton proved.
She is now in a secure, safe and comfortable environment where she receives good hot food, has a very nice warm room and has her medicine administered in a proper manner. There are large lounges where she can sit and interact with others, there are social activities on a daily basis where anyone can participate.
The staff are exceptional at all levels, the Matron is very hands on assisting in handing out meals etc and even the cleaners could easily mistaken for carers such is their enthusiasm and eagerness to help with a friendly word and chat when necessary, The carers themselves work professionally and are always alert, I know all this as I take a keen interest in the care she receives. My wife and I visit a minimum of three times a week at varying times so we see at first hand the overall picture, this is a very open, friendly and homely place which does not deserve the criticism that is sometimes thrown their way by office workers. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.
