Reviews

8.8 Karma Liv-in has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.778)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Karma Liv-in is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Karma Liv-in in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 1 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 4.778 for Karma Liv-in is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.778

  • 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 4 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Karma Liv-in is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 1 positive Reviews (5 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 1 Target = 1.000

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

My nan had a really great time and was well looked after. She felt like she was with a family and have always wanted to stay in touch with the friends she has made while staying there.
Thank you for looking after her so well.

When we sent my son to Karma Liv-in, he had the best day, he seemed very happy and he greeted us goodbye very well.
When my son attended his assessment his actions and behaviour showed he was very happy. When my son came back home he kept on speaking the names of the staff which shows us that he had a good holiday with staff members. All the credit goes to Karma Liv-in staff. We really appreciate what you have done by taking care of our son.

Since my mother has been living at Karma Liv-in she is much happier. She enjoys the smaller homely environment. I feel her needs are far better met, as the staff are very friendly. They take care of everything, her personal needs, medication, appointments, food and even hold parties for every occasion. She also has all her friends and relatives visit her, who are also very welcome. Therefore, I would not hesitate to recommend this care home to anyone else.

As a work experience volunteer I would recommend any service user to Karma liv-in because of the following:

-the home and facilities are in high standard and met or conform with all Care quality commission guidelines (CQC)
-staff are highly trained and very professional in carrying out their care duties and responsibilities.
-The home is well lit and am pleased with the out-door facilities.
-service users are treated with respect and dignity.

As a volunteer who who is studying Health and social care in college (BTEC level 3) given the opportunity to have a week work experience there was amazing. I have been to many residential care homes for work experience; and highly recommend Karma Liv-in to every client or service user. I will definitely like to work there after I finished my care course and gain my BTEC level 3 qualification.

My husband felt relaxed within ten minutes of arriving. They had already asked about what he'd done for a living, if there were any particular tv programmes he enjoyed and any foods he didn't like. I felt very relaxed when I left him, knowing he was in safe hands. They phoned my daughter with medical a worry, she gave permission for them to contact the GP. They said they had conversations about cars etc I don't think he really wanted to come home!! Knowing he would be looked after helped me enjoy my break. Hopefully the next time he requires respite, I do hope they have a vacancy.
