Reviews

9.1 Riverdale Court has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.081)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Riverdale Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Riverdale Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.581 for Riverdale Court is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 93 Ratings = 4.581

  • 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 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Riverdale Court is based on 8 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 16 Target = 0.500

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

I am very pleased with the care my father has received since he moved in. Staff are friendly and helpful, the carers are patient and cheerful, giving him the support he needs. He has been encouraged to join in activities and enjoys trying things he has not done before!

I used to go to Church with one of the residents. I just had to tell the manager today how wonderful her staff are. I visit a few friends in Home's and you hear bad things so I think it is important to say how good the staff are here. They always welcome me and are so kind and outgoing. A real credit to my friend.

We live nearby a lovely residential area. We visit the home and are invited to events which is very kind, they don't have to do that. The grandchildren love coming for the Easter Egg Hunt and the residents and staff are always cheery and welcoming. Staff always say hello when we see them.

This is how respite and care should be, a really good team of dedicated, caring and "can do" people providing high-quality support to people in an environment that are comfortable, safe, clean, very friendly and positive. If mum is happy, I'm happy.

My Father recently came in for respite. We were very anxious about it as it was the first time. The staff not only gave wonderful care to my dad but also supported us as a family.
We are so glad we chose Riverdale Court. The management were available to speak to me every day. Brilliant staff and managers.

The staff in Riverdale treat my mother with care and compassion. They are very friendly and helped me get through a very difficult time when mum was first admitted. I would highly recommend Riverdale as an excellent choice of care home particularly for someone with a dementia condition.

Very polite and supportive staff. My mother has language and memory problems and has been supported very well considering. I visit whenever I can and am made to feel welcome whatever the time. I had concerns over an agency staff who supported my mother by dressing her inappropriately - I raised this with staff and felt that I was heard. Very reassuring for the family.

Riverdale staff have shown to be kind, caring and respectful, my mother has responded to the care she receives and appears healthier than when she first arrived, although often confused, she does appear (and often says she feels) quite content.
