  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 9 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 4.623 for Foxton Court is calculated as follows: ( (66 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 106 Ratings = 4.623

  • 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?'

    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 4.978 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Foxton Court is based on 9 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 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target = 0.978

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

Foxton Court has been home for our mother for the last two years. She has had particular needs due to having a long term illness. The staff have made her feel at home. They have got to know her as a person, not a "case". She has been treated as a great individual with a need for help with being fed. The home's managers devised a special mould to shape pureed food so it looks like the actual food, amazing. So much more appetising. There are regular activities and outings for all the residents and they have different people on the team that help.

This home is very well run and the staff are very dedicated - caring and loving when I lost my husband last December. I could not have been cared for any better and the love I received from all the staff was unbelievable. They are a lovely set of girls.

A great place for rest and restoration for my mam. Very caring staff who assist in any way they can to help make the stressful period in my mother's life easier. A personal touch without being overpowering. Always willing to listen and further offer a solution to the smallest of problems. Thank you.

I have appreciated all effort made to make me comfortable in body and make allowances for mind lapses. The staff assist where necessary but let you be independent if that is what you can and want to do.

Staff are very attentive and patient with plenty of activities to choose from and I particularly like learning a new craft. The staff were particularly kind to me at the beginning to help me to settle into the home.

Foxton Court, in my opinion, is very well run from management to all of the care staff including kitchen, cleaning and entertainment staff. My mother has been a resident since July 2015 and has been looked after extremely well. She has been on lots of outings, has enjoyed many parties over the time. Her health has improved (she has been diabetic for many many years) now she has been taken off Metformin as her results are excellent. Her dementia has not deteriorated much over the time - I am happy with this. She loves the food (which I think is of a high standard) and the entertainers who perform shows.

Overall care has been extremely good from not only the carers but cleaners, cooks , hairdresser , entertainment. All the staff employed have long tiring days and sometimes could do with a little extra help or so it appeares to me .

I've been here for respite care for the last ten months, soon to return home. During my stay here, I've been most impressed by the way the home is run and the standard of care given willingly by the lovely staff. I would have no reservations about recommending the home to anyone considering residency.

My father is currently a resident of Foxton Court and has been there for approximately 3 weeks. He originally went there for 2 weeks respite following a fall however he has decided to stay there now for the foreseeable future. From the very first day, the staff at the home have gone out of their way to make his stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Everyone is very friendly and he has been looked after very well. His room is clean and comfortable and he enjoys the activities and days out when he gets the chance. The food is very good with plenty of choice. The common areas are spacious and bright and again there is choice as to dining rooms and lounges. My father also enjoys sitting in the garden where there is plenty of seating in pleasant surroundings. I would not hesitate to recommend Foxton Court to anyone.
