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 4.362 for Cranford Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (17 Excellents x 5) + (30 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.362
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.

My mum in law has been a resident at Cranford Care Centre for approximately 19 months. Each and every member of staff has treated her with dignity and care. I cannot praise the staff highly enough. As a retired nurse, I know how demanding a job it can be. Everyone works as a team. Well done!

I was very impressed with the facilities on offer at this care home. On talking with staff and management who were very friendly and described how everything worked seemed well organised from the care and support down to meals and activities and safety and security. Rooms were very spacious and clean and had everything close to hand you needed.

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Pamela M (Daughter of Resident) on Wednesday 31 August 2016. Relates to August 2016.
My sister and I dropped in at Cranford Care Centre without an appointment and were welcomed with warmth, respect and kindness. We were shown around the home and facilities. The lady who showed us around made sure that we were able to see all aspects of the home and she answered all of our questions with openness. She explained the process regarding admission to the home and immediately made us feel that relatives were welcome and encouraged to be part of the care home family.
I am unable to comment personally on the care in the home, but I wanted to comment on the aspects that I did observe on our visit such as cleanliness which is very good and especially the immediate impression that we were made welcome as visitors and that the questions answered and involvement regarding relatives was part of the homes ethos.
