Buckingham Care Home has a Review Score of 6.5 (6.535)
The Review Score of 6.5 (maximum of 10) for Buckingham Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Buckingham Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.5 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 5 for Buckingham 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 1.535 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Buckingham Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 14.4 positive Reviews (72 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 14.4 Target = 0.069 , then divided by 2 = 0.035

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Linda M (Daughter of Resident) on Monday 4 January 2016. Relates to January 2016.
My mother entered this care home in July 2015, initially for a few days respite care. She has problems walking, apart from at night when she wanders a lot without apparent pain, and dementia. Immediately the staff made her really welcome and were friendly and warm towards her as well as making sure she ate well and took her medicine. The rooms were also really nice and the whole home had a welcoming warm feel about it. As a result of this initial visit we booked my mother in there on a permanent basis and we are really pleased we did this.
My brothers and I and all my mum's visitors have always been made to feel welcome. As well as that the other people staying in the home and their visitors are also friendly and welcoming and happy to talk about what is going on. They have regular events and activities and try to make sure that residents, such as my mother with dementia, as well as those without join in as much as they can. Resident's families and visitors are also invited to join in with any event they are interested in.
All the members of staff from the carers through to the cooks and other support staff seem to know every resident by name.
