b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.361 for Park Springs Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (17 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.361
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 3.656 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Park Springs Care Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5
Target of 19.2 positive Reviews (96 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 19.2 Target = 0.156

The commitment and dedication shown by the activity coordinator has been amazing.
Since my papa has moved into the nursing home she has changed his life.
The work she does is completely selfless and I couldn't be more grateful.
The home is now a happy place for my papa!

I would like to thank the staff for the tremendous work they have done for my Dad. The work concerning my Dad with his past when he was a footballer has been tremendous, she has found out a lot about his past. She also got the BBC involved and they put him on Reporting Scotland. It has helped my Dad putting a smile on his face and on mine. Staff have relentlessly worked to put more information for both me and the home they deserve a medal.

The staff are very good and capable in their care of my dad although due to his illness he can be challenging. If we have any concerns or questions they are always available to listen and help.
The activities provided seem to be very varied to accommodate all residents.
The rooms I would say are basic but sufficient for dads needs and again if we have raised any concerns they have been rectified. On the whole, I would say my dad is contented and well cared for which are my main concerns.
