  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.958 for St Rita's Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (46 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.958

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.083 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St Rita's Care Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.333

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

My wife has been a resident at St Rita's since early 2014. I cannot fault the care and attention she has received since living here. Staff are very attentive.
when she had to visit Hospital her wheelchair was accommodated in the homes specialised vehicle and one of the carers went with her, together with the homes driver, I was invited to travel as well.
The home organises varied entertainment throughout the year. The home is very well decorated at Christmas time and all 'guests' receive a gift.

My mum was at St Rita's from February 2016 until the time of death in August. Her care was first class with no request too small and every care made to accommodate her wishes. She was treated with great compassion and her dignity maintained. Her dementia prevented her being overly grateful, but we, her family, cannot express our gratitude often enough. We were all so lucky that St Rita's had a place for her when she needed it so desperately. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.

My mum has been at St Rita's for two years and I have nothing but praise for the care she has been given. All the residents are treated with care, kindness and compassion. It doesn't matter what time of the day you visit, the staff are welcoming and friendly. My mum's condition fluctuates and she is often anxious and upset about her confusion, but the staff are always reassuring but not patronising. Mum has her hair done by the hairdresser every week and always appears well groomed and looks well. We are all very grateful to St Rita's for their exceptional care.
