Reviews

8.7 Barnes Court Care Centre has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.712)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Barnes Court Care Centre 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barnes Court Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 5 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 4.431 for Barnes Court Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 102 Ratings = 4.431

  • 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 4.281 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barnes Court Care Centre is based on 5 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 17.8 positive Reviews (89 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 17.8 Target = 0.281

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

As a daughter of a resident who has worked in several care homes myself, I have been extremely happy with every aspect of the care home. My mother seems very relaxed and content with her daily routine and has become a well-loved member of the family group. It is not easy putting a loved one in care but Barnes Court Care Centre has made a difficult heartbreaking situation more bearable.

My grandmother has had some medical conditions that have made her very unwell.
I was notified straight away and the nurse, care practitioners and carers have been so helpful and supportive to my grandmother and myself in getting her pain relief and help from other medical professions.

The home is and has been very good at dealing with the needs of my mother. At times slow to react to certain things but I put a lot of this down to the red tape of the system as a whole. The staff fully appear to want to care for my mother and are very forthcoming and friendly when visiting. I am delighted at the overall care and patience and honesty of the staff and feel comfortable having my mother at this home. Thank you.
