Overview

The Review Score of 7.1 (maximum of 10) for Anjulita Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Anjulita Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 2.4 out of 5 from 10 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.708 for Anjulita Court is calculated as follows: ( (89 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.708

  • 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 2.403 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Anjulita Court is based on 10 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4 then divided by 2 = 2.000

    2. Target of 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.806 , then divided by 2 = 0.403

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

7.1 Anjulita Court has a Review Score of 7.1 (7.111) from 10 Reviews

My mother has received excellent care from teams of carers who genuinely seem to enjoy looking after her. Any concerns raised by family members have been swiftly addressed.
My father spent his 'end of life' time and passing away at Anjulita and the care/love shown to us all was very special. We are so grateful for the determination of staff to see Mum through that difficult time.
The managers a wonderful team and have always made themselves available to meet with family and engage with Mum too.
Anjulita Court is an amazing provision for Bedford and I feel privileged to have been involved with this care home.

Thank you for your kind comments regarding the care team at Anjulita Court. I am so pleased to hear of the special love and care shown to you all. I will ensure that your feedback is shared with our team. Thank you again.

My mother was in Anjulita Court for 21 months. She really enjoyed her time there, made many friends and was happy to join in the activities on a regular basis. The facilities were very good and the staff always helpful and caring, even as her health deteriorated due to Alzheimer's and Dementia.
We were pleased that the managers and staff were able to make it possible for her to return from hospital to spend her last days there in a peaceful and caring environment.

Thank you for letting us know about your experiences of Anjulita Court. It is great to receive such positive feedback about the care, food and activities which I will ensure are shared with the whole team.

A well kept care home with caring staff. Turnover of staff is a problem but I believe this not unusual with care homes.

Kind and caring staff, a variety of activities to take part in if able. Clean and comfortable.

Thank you for feedback regarding Anjulita Court. I am delighted to hear that you have found the staff to be kind, caring and supportive. Your feedback is much appreciated and will be shared with our team.

When looking for a home for my mother, we were fortunate to get a room at Anjulita Court.
From the moment they assessed her needs, through to arrival and her stay, the staff and management could not have been kinder or done more.
She is well cared for, safe and happy, and so am I.

My father has been a resident in Anjulita Court for approximately 4 months. He is incredibly happy in this home, as are we his family.
The carers are always polite, kind, caring and compassionate with all the residents in my father's section. They are always willing to answer any questions we have and very approachable as is the manager.
The home is incredibly welcoming and feels like a home from home for my father. It's not clinical so had that comfortable home appeal. The team across the board are always very chat and friendly which makes a great difference. Overall, we are incredibly happy so far with Anjulita Court - well done team :)

Our mother has been a resident in Anjulita Court for almost 7 months and we have been delighted with both the home itself and the care she is receiving there. She was reluctant to 'give in' and accept that she needed a greater degree of care than we could provide for her at home, but she settled in very quickly due largely to the welcome she given by the carers, activity staff and even the kitchen staff who came to introduce themselves. She is very happy and well cared for, always looks smart and clean and enjoys all the activities and entertainment offered in the home. Food is good, rooms are spacious and clean and, far from this being the 'institution' one imagines a care home to be,she is enjoying a new lease of life. Her words '"I don't think I could be in a nicer place". Nor do we!!!

My mother went into the home in March and it is perfect for her in every way. The staff are friendly, caring and they now feel like extended family to me. The activities are frequent and varied as well as adapting to residents capabilities. The building is light, airy and maintained well. I have no criticisms.
