    The Review Score of 9.628 for Hassingham House Care Centre is based on 20 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 4.802 for Hassingham House Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (184 Excellents x 5) + (41 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 227 Ratings = 4.802

    • 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 4.826 for Hassingham House Care Centre is calculated as follows:

      1. 19 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 19 Positive Reviews = 1.900 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (19 Positive Reviews ÷ 46 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.826

Fantastic care home! Extremely well lead! The new manager is always around talking to residents and relatives and always addresses any concerns immediately. My father has been here for 2 years now and due to his dementia can be quite challenging, although the fantastic carers are able to deal with him very well. He is very well cared for always smartly dressed and clean. He joins in with many activities particularly quizzes and arts and crafts. All things considered, I wouldn't want him anywhere. This really is the best. Also, I would like to add the receptionist is a star always friendly and often although very busy will help with many tasks that I'm sure goes over and beyond her job description! All in all Hassingham House gets an A* from me.

There is happiness in this home. The only insecurity is that there are not enough staff. This seems to affect all care homes or anyway the majority. Residents and their families are listened to.

The overall standard of the home is very good. The staff are very helpful and kind to residents. My husband has been at the home for nearly a year now and he seems quite happy most of the time, he has Alzheimers so he's not able to tell me too much. I know he is well fed and kept clean.

Went to a gala dinner on the 20th June, excellent evening, lounge was decorated beautifully. All the residents looked lovely. The carers spent extra time getting everyone ready. The staff all of them go the extra mile and when I leave my husband for respite I feel confident he will be very well looked after. The staff are all friendly. Take time to speak to everyone as though they are their own relations, very impressed.

Friendly staff, always cheerful and smiling. Just by watching the staff interact, they are all good. I have been trying to find a nice respite facility for some months. I am sure my husband will settle in and will be looked after as I would look after him myself. The gives you peace of mind when you yourself need a break.

The most important points in looking for a care home on behalf of my mother were visible as soon as the door opened when I visited Hassingham House in April 2014.
No appointment was made, however Sally and all the staff were instantly impressive, encouraged by the relaxed atmosphere and smiling faces of all individuals within the care home as well as the standard of the facilities.

Relatives are invited to attend Regular guardian meetings to air there views and discuss moving forward on improvements.

The extent to how residents are encouraged to participate in the various daily activities and events has exceeded my expectations throughout 2014

Hassingham House celebrated Christmas in full decorative style for all to enjoy.

My sister and I were overjoyed when offered the opportunity to join my mother for a traditional Christmas day lunch. All cooked in house by the excellent kitchen staff.

I cannot praise enough the care exhibited in all aspects of life at Hassingham House. All the staff really care for all the residents and the welcome when visiting is so great. I attended the Christmas party for residents, which was great fun, and I know that my mother had a fun time at Christmas.
For us, as a family, we know that my mother is loved and cared for and I know that she is extremely safe. It really is like home.
I know how difficult it is to make the decision that a loved one has to enter a care home, but whilst my mother has been there I have nothing but praise.

I have been looking for care for my brother, he has been visiting once a week with his wife, for a few hours, the Manager Sally suggested this would be a good way to get him used to the home. He has been really enjoying it which will make his eventual move easier. The time spent over Christmas from the staff to ensure all the residents had a great time, was wonderful. Thanks everyone at Hassingham, amazing staff, nothing to much trouble, the afternoon entertainment is fun filled. Staff and residents are all happy, obviously a well run home. Well done Sally keep up the good work. I know John will be really happy.

Amazing person centred care

My friend was not settling initially and the Manager spent a long while with her whilst I was there, talking and stroking her hand. She was upset about her bath times and the manager asked her questions about her life at home and what her routine was, ended up with everything being sorted and her bathing with the night staff. She took the time to find out what her home routine was like. The kitchen staff, done the same with her food, nothing is too much trouble for them at Hassingham House.
All staff really ask questions and provide choice, I will be bringing my Mum to Hassingham when she is ready. Good work to all.

FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE

Whilst visiting my friend Meg, I was overwhelmed with the swift attention the manager dealt with her small concerns, she wanted to get up and showered at 07.00 and her bell was stiff. Immediately Sally came in she sat next to Meg, held her hand, listened to her concern and immediately looked at the bell and had it changed, then she asked Meg if she would like to get up with the night staff. Meg has said that the care is wonderful and she now is going to stay permanent. I noticed the staff were happy and the other residents were all happy too. What a wonderful run home, well done Sally and your team. Keep up the good work you all do.
