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 4.5 for Dearne Hall is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.5
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.

All the staff at Dearne Hall are all very caring, they spend time with all the residents doing activities for every occasion that arises. They treat everyone with dignity and always respect their privacy. The rooms are comfortable and spotless, clothes are washed, pressed and return quickly to wardrobes.
My family and I are always greeted with a warm welcome and a friendly smile, which puts my mind at rest knowing my husband is well looked after.

Review submitted from a Postal Card by J D (Daughter of Resident) on Wednesday 14 December 2016. Relates to November 2016.
My mother has resided here since January 2015. To begin with, she was quite unsettled with her new environment but with the support and care of carers, she has really settled down. Communication is always good between the home and myself and I feel content now that my mother is being well cared for, making sure her personal needs are met. I have recommended the home to several people as I feel it offers value for money and person-centered care.
