Fremantle Court has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.056)
The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Fremantle Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Fremantle 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 5 for Fremantle Court is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
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 Fremantle Court is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0.056
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Job Title: Home Manager
Helen’s career at The Fremantle Trust started in 1996. Since then she has worked in various roles at the Trust, with a strong commitment to providing first class care and support for older people.
Helen became a Service Manager in 2004.
What attracted you to a career in the care sector?
When I began my career in older people care services, the job fitted in around my family commitments. I soon found out I was good at it and had a great empathy for older people and a passion for their wellbeing.
What is your philosophy on care?
To always remember that the person before you has had a full and varied life, was once young, went to work, was a friend, parent, wife or husband, and probably inside their head still feel like a 25-year-old.
What gets you out of bed each morning?
The variety and challenges we face as a team each day and the satisfaction of knowing we are making a difference.
What are you passionate about in your life?
I go the extra mile for people – residents, families, colleagues and visitors. I don’t shut my office door so if someone walks in and wants my time, I give it to them. For me, getting it right from admission to end of life is important.
What makes you proud of Fremantle Court?
Ensuring we have well-cared for, contented and comfortable residents, who feel they are living life in a warm, friendly, inviting and safe place. I am also very proud of the wonderful links we have within our local community – Christmas is a great example when the local church, and many volunteers all come together to join us in the festive activities at Fremantle Court. It’s something the residents really enjoy each year.
