The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Dove Court is based on 61 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.935 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.935 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 5 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.935 for Dove Court is based on 61 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.935 for Dove Court is calculated as follows: ( (685 Excellents x 5) + (34 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 725 Ratings = 4.935

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. 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 provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 5 for Dove Court is calculated as follows:

      1. 61 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 61 Positive Reviews = 6.100 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (61 Positive Reviews ÷ 32 Registered Beds) x 2 = 3.813 (maximum score = 1)

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1).

Whenever I visit Dove Court the staff greet me with a smile and an offer of a hot or cold drink. They all appear to be happy in the work they do with their residents. I always find a few residents sat in the lovely conservatory chatting and doing the daily crossword. The atmosphere is always so relaxed and friendly. My relative says that he would not want to be in any other home nothing is ever too much trouble and the activities and cooking are excellent.

I visit my gran as often as I can when I'm home from university, she is always looking smart and clean, always smiling and singing the praises of the staff and home. We are always made to feel welcome when visiting and my mind it at ease knowing gran is so well cared for when I can't make it to see her. I love listening to what she has been up to, trips out, activities (she has facials & manicures there)

Mu mum is a different person, she's smiling, eating better and she feels better in a safe environment, which is good for everybody. She is mixing with other residents instead of being on her own and joining in the activities. The staff who I can't thank enough, they are so helpful and will go the extra mile.

After going to another home for a few weeks and not enjoying my experience I moved to Dove Court. What a difference. It is a lovely home with a caring helpful staff. My room is lovely with sea views. I am given lovely fresh cooked food every day and I haver plenty of choices of what I want to eat. I am allowed to choose when I go to be and when I get up. I feel so safe and happy here. I love not having to do my shopping but still be able to have the things I enjoy. I am also enjoying the activities which are enjoyed by everyone.

Staff are always about without being too much involved when we visit, which is so nice. It is more homely for all of us.

My elderly resident couldn't be happier at Dove Court, the care in which she receives is faultless, by staff who generally care about her health and well being. They all go above and beyond to ensure she's always happy, well fed, clean and tidy.
We always get the warmest of welcomes when we visit, and unlike other care homes which we visited during the choosing process, Dove Court is always a pleasure to visit.

My auntie goes to Dove Court for daycare, the staff are fantastic with her, she always comes home saying how much she enjoys the food, care, and the activities she gets involved in. The staff rang her Thursday to invite her to the firework party there Thursday evening which I thought was amazing service that really went the extra mile. 11/10 for the staff and managers there!

Dove court ticks all the boxes for me. I feel confident that my mother is treated with respect and is cared for by a highly professional team of carers. They are all polite, friendly and ever willing to help. My father is moving in this week as he has been so impressed with the home. That's quite and important decision as he has always been very anti about care homes!

My uncle is 93 and moved in six months ago. He was very independent minded and very cross when I first suggested he considered a care home. A soon as we were shown around he felt happy to move in. He is relaxed and comfortable. He has companionship and is kept active. He obviously enjoys his food. The care is personalised and thoughtful and delivered in a considerate way.

Myself and sister recently on the off chance turned up at Dove Court to view potential future care for our elderly father. The girls where very welcoming and accomadating, very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. The home looked lovely and clean, all the people looked happy and friendly, enjoying coffee in the conservatory with superb views over Seaton and Axmouth, whilst others were getting on the bus to go to the seaside. Very impressed with what we saw and defiantly looking further into care and support from them. 10/10 to the team.

Every week the happy staff make the day a lot easier and more enjoyable when I visit. My aunt has taken quite a while to adjust to new surroundings and loss of independence, but has been shown care and concern each day despite her trials and tribulations! To know she is kept warm, secure and well tended to is a great worry off our minds. The lunches we can share with new found friends are a treat and the general feeling of the home is relaxed, bright, friendly but dignified. I am delighted to have found and chosen this home, having refused many others.

Myself and partner had a look around Dove Court as well as a few other local homes for a place for my mother-in-law in the near future. The staff couldn't be more welcoming or friendly if they tried. They put my fears at ease straight away and answered all my questions. The home is lovely and clean, plenty of staff interaction and activities going on, and the overall atmosphere was warm and friendly. Definitely a place like home.

I am lucky to have a son who is reasonably healthy and he comes over takes me out occasionally. So upset I have not partaken in any other outings.
Pleasant staff, lovely surroundings in a nice conservatory to sit in for leisure.
