Reviews

9.1 Riverview Care Home has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.083)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Riverview Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Riverview Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.833 for Riverview Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Riverview Care Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 1.2 positive Reviews (6 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 1.2 Target Reached = 1

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

Riverview is a very homely care home and takes into account everybody's needs and wishes. It is always very welcoming when I go to visit and my friend says he is very happy there and is always full of chat about the things he has done. They seem to have varied activities and the staff are friendly. I have stayed there for tea and the food is really nice and tasty. The residents had cooked it themselves in their cookery group. They have a lovely little garden and my friend uses it a lot.

Our son has been there over 10 years and has received excellent support throughout his time there. The quality of care staff has always been superb, due to the diligent recruitment process and consistent standards set by management. When new residents are selected, good care is taken to ensure the equilibrium of the atmosphere is not interrupted and that the new person gels well with the existing residents.

Whenever there has been an issue, which has been very infrequent, the staff and management are very quick to listen, respond and deal with it to our satisfaction.

Despite a limited budget for our son, Riverview is able to create a range of suitable recreational and day care activities.

Riverview has excellent communication with parents, ensures an annual review takes place and involves us fully with all aspects of our son's care and his health and wellbeing.

We can't recommend it highly enough.
