    The Review Score of 9.196 for Solent Grange Care Home is based on 11 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 4.646 for Solent Grange Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (87 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 130 Ratings = 4.646

    • 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 4.55 for Solent Grange Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 11 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 11 Positive Reviews = 1.100 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (11 Positive Reviews ÷ 40 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.550

My mum has been in Solent Grange since February 2014. The first few months I had a lot of concerns. I did talk to the management about them but they were never dealt with. Once new management came everything has changed and is 100% better. I have no concerns at all in respect of the care my mother receives. She is 99 next week. When she was admitted to Solent Grange, doctors told us that she would not live more than a few months. That shows me what good care she is getting. She has been so happy since the new Manager arrived.

Everything is to a very high standard, the staff are always very helpful even in very trying situations. Communications between staff and visitors are cordial though at times the staff can be very busy. Rooms tend to be fairly large and airy, cleaning is an ongoing activity day and night. Various activities are available to residents if they're able enough and also days out during the summer months. The establishment is very well run and organised, any problems and enquiries are dealt with very quickly. It is a pleasant and secure environment and people feel at home there.

This is a first rate nursing home. My mother has dementia and has been a resident for 3 years. The team at the home are all caring, kind and respectful. They have provided excellent care and continue to do so. I am confident that my mother is happy and safe at the home and I would thoroughly recommend it. The home is very clean, the food is good and visitors are welcomed at any time of day. There are also numerous, meaningful activities for residents.

My cousin was transferred here as her dementia worsened. We were looking for somewhere where she could live out her days in comfort and dignity without having to move again.
Solent Grange is in a lovely setting in a convenient location. The staff are always helpful and friendly and aware of current situations. They are responsive to any deterioration and seek solutions promptly. Care and consideration are obviously a priority. We have been extremely satisfied with our choice and would have no hesitation recommending Solent Grange.
