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 Bridge House Care Home 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 3.076 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bridge House Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 13.2 positive Reviews (66 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13.2 Target = 0.076

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Patricia W (Daughter of Resident) on Tuesday 1 May 2018. Relates to April 2018.
My mother moved into Bridge House Care Home on April 9th. The changes in her were immediate and remarkable - she is much more alert; she is engaging with and responding to all those caring for her; she is engaging with her stimulating environment; she is able, with assistance, to stand and take a few steps. These are wonderful things for me to witness. My mother is very, very happy.
The owners, management and all care staff are committed to delivering high-quality care. It is clear that they have a vision of what care for the elderly should be and they are determined to deliver it. There is openness with relatives. I feel that I can talk to the staff about anything to do with my mother's care.
The activities organised are beneficial for the residents' well being. My mother enjoyed an outing last weekend with two other residents and carers. The fresh air and change of scene did all of us a power of good.
The home is beautiful, peaceful, yet stimulating. My mother loves her new room.
