    The Review Score of 9.465 for Seely Hirst House is based on 13 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 4.781 for Seely Hirst House is calculated as follows: ( (122 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 155 Ratings = 4.781

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • 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 4.684 for Seely Hirst House is calculated as follows:

      1. 13 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 13 Positive Reviews = 1.300 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (13 Positive Reviews ÷ 38 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.684

Both my parents have been residents at Seely Hirst House until my father passed away in March 2014, my mother is still a resident and has been for a number of years. My family and I cannot speak highly enough of the treatment that both of our parents have received. The staff are friendly, thorough and incredibly efficient. The home is always clean, warm and friendly and the quality of the food is excellent. My mum's health has improved out of sight over the last few years and I can only put this down to the way she has been looked after by the excellent staff at Seely Hirst.

My mother has been at Seely Hirst House for sixteen weeks. She came for just two weeks respite and today it has been agreed that she can become a permanent resident. When my mother arrived we didn't think she would be long for this world but the difference now is quite remarkable, despite her Alzheimer's and other problems. She has regained some spark, is much calmer and happier, besides looking clean and smart all the time.

A few years ago my mother had several days respite in another home, following a spell in hospital. That particular home made us incredibly wary of residential but the atmosphere at Seely Hirst is so, so different. I love the way that you are welcome to visit at any time and sit in the lovely modern , light lounge or patio/garden. The home cooked food looks very appetising and prepared in a clean kitchen, as you can see through a large window into this room. [The score on the door is the top 5 and reflects this.] Something that often doesn't get mentioned is the laundry but, this vital aspect is also very important and very well maintained here.

I have been impressed by the leadership which is absolutely vital to any well run business and especially in a care home. They are always looking to improve standards and you can discuss any concerns with them. Nothing seems too much trouble. The staff get to know the residents and there are plenty of smiles and laughs to cheer the day. Many of the fantastic and friendly staff have been there for years which speaks for itself. There is expertise in a variety of conditions plus appropriate regular visits from medical personnel. I can relax knowing my mother is well cared for and safe. Thank you to all the great team!

My wife was admitted to Seely Hirst House in December 2013. And will remain there as a resident, the family are very happy with the care being shown to her. Having found a home with such dedicated staff and management, nothing appears to be to much trouble. I have enjoyed the 2 Christmas dinners with her, and a New Years Day dinner. The standard of food and service was excellent, and visitors are always made most welcome on special days or any other days. My wife enjoys the many activities arranged when she can understand them and also music from various visiting groups or from the care home CD player. My family are pleased that my wife is in excellent hands all through the day and night, and that her needs are dealt with immediately.

My wife was looked after well at Seely. The food at Seely is lovely, cannot fault it you couldn't better it. Very lucky to have food that is provided, that is why I used to come and have meals with my wife.

Whilst a resident at Seely Hirst my mother has always been looked after very well and in a caring way. I have been particularly impressed by the compassionate care that she received from all staff during her final days.

My mother has lived here since June 2010 and she has been very happy. Previously she was in sheltered housing and became very lovely with physical symptoms as a result. She has periods in hospital. Since being at Seely Hirst House, these symptoms has disappeared and she is so much happier with other people. This is largely due to the care received from the staff here without being asked, they arranged in January for an optician to visit and prescribed my mother with new spectacles. She is well cared for, she recently had her 98th birthday and was provided with presents, cake and coke for her.

I like it here because the staff are here to help me if I need it but they still allow me to be independent and do what I can for myself. Also the home is very clean and I think that is very important. The staff are good.

We get everything we want here. It is a beautiful place, I have a lovely room and we are treated very well. They arranged for me to have a bigger, new bed as the other one was too small for me. The food is very good too.

My mother has been a resident at Seely Hirst House for five years.
I have visited on an almost daily basis over that time and therefore feel well placed to comment on the care which my mother has received.
Over that period of time my mother's medical and physical needs have changed and I can say that these have been met by the staff at the home.
The most important factor has been the quality of the carers whose patience and commitment to those in their care never ceases to impress. I am always made to feel welcome and am involved in all aspects of my mother's care.
The home is undergoing some refurbishment at the moment which will provide more spacious accommodation for the residents on completion.
