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 Ardencraig Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 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 3.056 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ardencraig Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 17.8 positive Reviews (89 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 17.8 Target = 0.056

The care extremely good within this home. Recently since New Manager has started I feel a much more positive attitude and atmosphere within the Home. The decor needs to be updated and improved but very happy with the care of my uncle.

Review submitted from a Postal Card by Kenneth R (Cousin of Resident) on Monday 6 June 2016. Relates to June 2016.
When my cousin first moved in the rooms weren't being cleaned and tidied properly, but in saying that the home was short staffed and since then, everything is now up to standard. The staff are all friendly and helpful and I can find no fault with either the staff or the home.
