  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St John's House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.718 for St John's House is calculated as follows: ( (103 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 142 Ratings = 4.718

  • 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:

    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. 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 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St John's House is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.500

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

9.2 St John's House has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.218) from 12 Reviews

St John's is a very welcoming home. It is beautifully furnished, light and airy. Anyone having to go into residential care could not find a better place.

My husband, who suffers from Alzheimer's, became 'paralysed' over Christmas and was admitted to St John's House. After a few days with much encouragement from the staff he was able to 'walk' and be mobile. The staff have been very patient and kind and helpful to his family. The ability to visit at any time has been very beneficial to patient and family.

My mother has been at St John's House since April, she suffers from dementia and up until April, she was at home with our help and carers 3 times a day! Since she came here, she has been in much better spirits and her mood is so much more positive. For us her safety is paramount and this is a safe environment. The level of carers is absolutely wonderful - all the staff are excellent - nothing is too much trouble and they really do go above and beyond to ensure mum is happy. St John's House has certainly enriched Mum's life and for us, it is a great sense of relief that she is safe and extremely well looked after in the equivalent of a 5* hotel.

Garry Gardiner, Operations Manager at St John's House responded to this review on 23 Jun 2017:

Thank you so much for your lovely and kind words. At St Johns House the quality of life that we provide our residents is always paramount and as you have said we always aim to go above and beyond ensuring all our residents are treated with the care and love they deserve.

My Mum went to St John's for respite care and we were hugely impressed. The facilities and atmosphere are second to none and the staff were all brilliant.
The administration was handled efficiently and St John's did all they could to make Mum's stay a happy one. Highly recommended!

We really don't think we could have found a better place for my mother - she has really settled in well, after a period of live-in care that wasn't working. The care home is purpose built and has truly excellent facilities. The staff are exceptional - very caring and respectful. The manager and staff helped tremendously with my mother's admission. The home's ethos is to present itself as a country hotel wth exceptional care and it's succeeding.

I was impressed that as I wheeled my wife in for the first time all the staff we met seemed to know who she was and greeted her by name.
When I collected her after a week she was glowing and had actually enjoyed her stay. At previous homes that she has been to for respite, she has dreaded going back. The home is more like a five-star hotel than a care home. Sadly she has just died at home.
