    The Average Rating of 4.831 for Summerdyne Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.831

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Summerdyne Nursing Home is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered beds ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 5.4 Target Reached = 1

The nursing home is all we could have wished for under the sad circumstances. The staff have all been both welcoming and friendly, most importantly they inspire confidence that the patients are treated kindly and with dignity. The room occupied by our mother is bright, clean and tastefully decorated and we are struck by the cleanliness of the entire place- there are no unsavoury odours. We feel very fortunate to have been able to secure a room at Summerdyne for palliative care.

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.
