The carehome.co.uk Top 20 Care Home Awards 2016 highlight the most recommended Care Homes in each region of the UK. The Awards are based on over 55,000 Reviews & Recommendations received from Residents and Family / Friends of Residents from 15th February 2014 to 15th February 2016. Specifically, we have used the Review Score, as of 15th of February 2016, which is calculated using a combination of the number of reviews, the average of each of the ratings and the size of the care home. Care homes are excluded from the awards if they are not compliant with their regulatory authority at the time of the announcement of the Awards (5th March 2016). If we deem appropriate, we reserve the right to exclude care homes or withdraw an award.
The carehome.co.uk Top 20 Care Home Group Awards 2016 highlight the most recommended Care Home Groups in the UK. The Awards are based on The Group Review Score as of 15th February 2016.
