* Care Quality Commission is responsible for the registration and inspection of social care services in England.
The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Blatchington Manor is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Blatchington Manor in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.917 for Blatchington Manor is calculated as follows: ( (22 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.917
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 3.483 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Blatchington Manor is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 + 0.25 = 3.25
Target of 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8.6 Target = 0.233
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Sue P (Sister of Resident) on Tuesday 10 April 2018. Relates to March 2018.
The décor is fresh, each lounge carefully designed with a different theme, all tastefully furnished. The gardens landscaped to give safe walkways and raised beds, water features, bus stop, letterbox and a large conservatory with a sheltered walkway.
Care - Second to none! The standard of care is excellent. Care staff are highly trained in dementia and fully understand their client's needs. all the staff have all been supportive of me when I have been feeling low regarding my sister's condition, even phoning me back! They always involve me and keep me updated.
Hygiene - The cleaning staff keep the home spotless. The carers wear aprons when assisting at meal times and uniforms are always clean and smart looking.
Diet – Freshly cooked food and a selection of choices by the qualified chef – excellent!
Activities - The home has 2 excellent activities co-ordinators and a spacious activities room,
I would highly recommend this care home; they have raised the bar in care facilities.

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Emma H (Daughter of Resident) on Sunday 8 April 2018. Relates to April 2018.
My mother has been living at Blatchington Manor since it opened. I can not recommend it enough. The staff, from the manager and deputy manager downwards are so friendly and caring. We always get a warm welcome when we arrive, whatever day or time we turn up. My mother is well looked after and has even started putting on some weight as the food is "really good", high praise from her. She is kept busy with activities every day and the staff have taken time to get to know Mum and what her interests and previous life was like so they can tailor activities to suit her.
