  • 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 4.817 for Summerdyne Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (49 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.817

      • 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 3.87 for Summerdyne Nursing Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 5 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 5 Positive Reviews = 0.500

      3. (5 Positive Reviews ÷ 27 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.370

My mum came to Summerdyne in November 2014 as she was suffering from dementia. During her time at the nursing home she received the best care from a team of very dedicated staff. In June 2015 my father also came to Summerdyne for long term care and again I found the home to be so supportive as it was an extremely difficult time for us all as a family. Sadly mum passed away in December 2015 and again the staff excelled in all aspects of their care for mum and my family, especially my father. I visit my father every day and always feel welcome in the home and part of one big family. This is a wonderful nursing home and I feel extremely fortunate that my parents have been able to live here; and to be loved and cared for every day by an amazing team of people.

Tuula Page, Manager at Summerdyne Nursing Home responded to this review on 06 Jun 2016:

Summerdyne staff consider it a privilege to provide homely care for our residents who we consider as our extended family. It is very important to us that the families and friends of the residents feel supported and helping to achieve a good quality of life that they all deserve.

I am fully satisfied that the quality of care and support that I expect for my mother is given by the staff at Summerdyne and have no hesitation when asked, in recommending the home to others.

We are really pleased with the whole Summerdyne experience, very clean home, and the staff have treated my mother-in-law with kindness and patience at all times. The management team have helped us to deal with administration side so that the whole experience has been very positive in all respects.
It is a huge relief for all of the family that we have made the right decision for my mother-in-law who is very happy and has settled in far better than we could have hoped for. Would recommend this home to anyone with no reservations.

We were very nervous about Dad going into a nursing home. You do hear some awful stories. However, I am confident that my Father is living in a very clean (it doesn't smell of urine), caring, supportive, encouraging atmosphere.

The staff are genuinely lovely. The entertainment is good and my Dad has even joined an outside singing club which he wouldn't of done prior to going in.

The manual handling trainer has got him moving far more than he was at home so he is more independent; she is firm but kind with a big helping of humour.

Our family has now got their lives back, Mum is relaxed and the pressure is off me a little.

I went to have a delicious lunch with Dad today - just let them know you're going and pay £2.50 for delicious home cooked food, sourced from local suppliers.

We couldn't be happier and neither could Dad, in fact he regularly tells me he doesn't want to go home.

When you have to put a person i.e a loved one into the care of others and that same person has loved and cared for you, it is one of life's hardest decisions. When we found Summerdyne we were immediately impressed with the cleanliness and homely feeling that it gave us. After 18 months of Summerdyne experience we can thoroughly endorse our original feelings. The dedicated care that my nearly 100 year old mother receives is at a standard that I would be happy to wish for myself when my time comes.
