The Review Score of 6.7 (maximum of 10) for Sycamore Hall Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sycamore Hall Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 3.619 for Sycamore Hall Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (5 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (5 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 21 Ratings = 3.619

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.081 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sycamore Hall Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.081

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

I have visited this home every week for at least 18 months. I have found staff to be generally very helpful and caring. However, staffing levels are far too low considering there are about 30+ residents with advanced dementia and high care needs. Many requiring hoisting for bathing and feeding at mealtimes, are in incontinence pads, frequently soiling etc etc. On 22/10/16 PM there was a shift manager and 2 other staff members, one being downstairs showing people around. Wish to say that staffing levels are too low, more please.
