Reviews

8.3 The Chocolate Works Care Village has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.265)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for The Chocolate Works Care Village 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 The Chocolate Works Care Village in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 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 The Chocolate Works Care Village 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:

    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 3.348 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Chocolate Works Care Village 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 20.4 positive Reviews (102 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 20.4 Target = 0.098

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

My mum came to Chocolate Works for end of life but with the help of the wonderful staff, the spa and reflexology, she gradually regained her strength and became independent. She made great friends.
The activities and the visits from the Chaplin were amazing. They held her a birthday party with cakes and wonderful sandwiches. I am pleased to say that she is walking and back home on her own. We very much attribute this to you all.
Thank you.

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I will pass your comments on to the team.
With best wishes Sally Rasmussen

I would just like to thank all the wonderful staff and careers at the Chocolate works for welcoming my Aunt into their care.

It was not an easy time for us but it was made so much easier with their expert help and advice .
Not only has she settled and already started calling it "home", she has a smile on her lovely face again.

After the difficult process of leaving her home she has, at last, found a new lease of life and says for the first time in months, she feels safe again.

Just days after moving into The Chocolate Works, it was her birthday and a fabulous party was organised by the staff for her to share it with the other residents.
Just to see her mixing with new friends and the joy on all their faces as they sang, laughed, shared their stories and tucked into party food was so lovely, I can't thank you all enough.

You have made a difficult time so much easier for us and to see her happy, safe and well cared for is all we ever wanted.

Thank you.
