The Review Score of 7.3 (maximum of 10) for Mowat Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Mowat Court 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 4.167 for Mowat Court is calculated as follows: ( (4 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.167
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 3.109 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Mowat Court is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target = 0.109

Review submitted from a Website Submission by George M (Son of Resident) on Friday 7 April 2017. Relates to April 2017.
My mother entered Mowat Court after a second stroke. At first glance, my wife's and I assessment was that the facility itself was rather average in appearance, and indeed, could use some sprucing up. It was obvious that a bit of money needed to be spent on it to counteract the wear and tear that it has endured.
However, not enough can be said about how utterly fantastic the staff are and the care, concern and friendship they displayed consistently to my mother with her time there. They truly treated her with the utmost of respect and dignity, took the time to get to know her as a person and to communicate personally to my wife and I as well. The manager is first-class and has pulled together a team of dedicated and devoted nurses and carers that ALWAYS went above and beyond the call of duty.
We ended up needing to move mum to a new care home because of distance from family and mum was very sad to leave all the friends she made while at Mowat Court. That in itself speaks volumes.
