Overview

The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Cooksons Court 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 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cooksons Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.761 for Cooksons Court is calculated as follows: ( (73 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 92 Ratings = 4.761

  • 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 3.404 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cooksons Court is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.154

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

8.2 Cooksons Court has a Review Score of 8.2 (8.165) from 8 Reviews

I was resident at Cooksons Court, first in the Re-enablement unit and then for some weeks in the nursing home for respite care. In both sections, I found the accommodation comfortable and attractive and the food generally well cooked and attractive. The staff, in general, were cheerful, friendly, polite and helpful. But I feel that lack of funding and consequent understaffing hampered their willingness to assist on several occasions. (As if you needed telling).

I believe this to be the finest care home in the area and probably one of the best anywhere. Modern, friendly, comfortable, reassuring with very caring and approachable staff at all levels.

Gripes? Cable for call button too short didn't reach to the chair. Pendant would be better. Air mattress not suitable for rehab believe they will be replaced on that floor.

My stay has been fantastic could bot have been in a better place, all due to the carers and surroundings. The staff are very friendly and polite even at times when they were short staffed they always found the time for a quick chat.

This nursing home is modern, extremely well equipped and displays a culture of high standards in every aspect of it's organisation. The staff appeared to know nothing but courtesy and professionalism towards both visitors and residents, equipped with plenty of laughter and humour. I was particularly impressed with the level of care and attention given to my aunt (90 years), albeit for only a few weeks before her death.

My mother was placed in Cooksons Court whilst awaiting an assessment following hospital discharge. She had dementia but settled in well. The staff were caring and encouraged her to talk about her life. The food was excellent and mum could choose what she wanted to eat. The facilities are amazing and activities for residents are varied and encouraged participation. I felt happy when mum became permanent and they made me feel comfortable with her being there. Mum sadly passed away on 1st March 2016.

Preston Park House has moved to Cooksons Court last September. It is fabulous! The staff could not be more helpful. My sister died there yesterday and they were so attentive. They could not have done more. You should have a fabulous box to tick.
