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 4.583 for Ivybank House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (7 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.583
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 3.119 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ivybank House Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.119

Review submitted from a Website Submission by William M (Son of Resident) on Monday 23 April 2018. Relates to April 2018.
Ivybank is a relatively small residential care home which is small enough to make the residents feel they have a more personal touch. The meals are very good and nourishing and can be tailored to suit whatever dietary requirements a particular resident may have (they are for my mum). There is always a cup of tea and snacks available outside main meal times. On the whole, the staff are all friendly and very caring towards the residents. There are normally activities programmed during the day as well as guest entertainers for the residents for those able to participate. When any issues have arisen over the years, these have been highlighted and addressed satisfactorily with management.
Finally, having a close relative in a care home is a big decision normally forced upon family and it's very difficult to feel your mum's getting the level of care you want for them or feel they deserve but in Ivybank's case, I feel they provide this.
How likely would you be to recommend Ivybank House Care Home? Extremely Likely
