    The Review Score of 8.910 for Hastings Residential Care Home is based on 9 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 4.724 for Hastings Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (76 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 105 Ratings = 4.724

      • 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 4.186 for Hastings Residential Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 9 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 9 Positive Reviews = 0.900

      3. (9 Positive Reviews ÷ 63 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.286

My mother had many difficulties due to the challenges of old-age and lived in Hastings for six years, in a well-decorated room, with space for possessions and some furniture. The standard of maintenance is high and there is a pleasant, cheerful atmosphere in community areas. Most important of all though, is the attentive professional attitudes shown by the staff and carers. My mother's daily needs were always attended to, and there was a genuine concern for her well-being. Respect and kindness were always evident. Our family will always be grateful that she was able to remain there during her final weeks, receiving warm compassionate care, ensuring that the most difficult of times were peaceful and dignified. This high standard of care for those facing their most vulnerable times, is a tribute to all the staff and carers.

I was delighted to see my cousin happily settled in comfortable surroundings and attractive, welcoming gardens. The staff I encountered during my few days visits were all friendly, willing to help and treated the residents with affection and dignity. The meals were first-class and the lovely birthday cake - made on the premises - was enjoyed by all and much appreciated. A high standard of care and administration, well done Hastings!

My mother and father were residents at Hastings for four years and three years respectively and the care they received was just wonderful. Every single one of the brilliant staff at Hastings gave my parents time, patience and expertise which made them (and us) feel valued and gave them a new lease of life. For ages mum and dad thought they were on an
all-inclusive package holiday. I, and my family are particularly grateful for the end of life care my parents both received. It was such a hard time for us but the support we received from all at Hastings was like having a loving family around. As long as I live I will ever able to thank them enough and I'll never forget them for the wonderful care they gave us all.

My husband lived in Hastings House for some 20 months, suffering from Lewy Body Dementia. The staff were always kind and sympathetic to his problems. As his physical health deteriorated he was able to stay and be given the nursing care by staff he knew, and who knew and loved him. I have never regretted placing him in this home when I could no longer look after himself.

Over a number of years my aunt has been wonderfully looked after. Now she has dementia - she gets very worried and upset at times and it has been comforting to know the carers would sit and comfort her. The staff also encourages Auntie to eat. Her one love is to have her nails painted - this they do and keep in touch, with me, regarding her clothes etc - I can not speak too highly of them all!!!

I find the staff very caring day and night. My nan knows the staff by names and feels very comfortable and safe. My nans appetite has improved greatly since moving into Hastings. The staff are prompt in informing me and my family if there are problems. I would recommend Hastings to anyone that needs a family member 100% cared for.
