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 Caledonia 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Caledonia Care Home is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

Target of 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Fiona M (Granddaughter of Resident) on Tuesday 15 December 2015. Relates to December 2015.
Unfortunately my papa was diagnosed with dementia, which led to him needing 24 hour care. This was hard for us as a family to accept. However the necessary wheels were put in motion, and importantly we had to make an informed choice of an appropriate care home. We chose Caledonia Care Home.
His stay was short and he was sadly taken away from us, but I can speak on behalf of my whole family in saying that we were blessed to have had him cared for and supported in the most respectful and dignified manner possible. The care staff were absolutely amazing and made my papa feel so welcome and comfortable, which helped us as family deal with the circumstances we were facing, right to the very end! My family, and I cannot thank the staff of Caledonia enough for all their care, support, love and compassion they showed. They truly are worth their weight in gold, and in my opinion deserve to be recognised for all their hard work.
