    The Review Score of 7.922 for Barchester Hilderstone Hall is based on 3 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 4.5 for Barchester Hilderstone Hall is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.5

    • 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 3.422 for Barchester Hilderstone Hall is calculated as follows:

      1. 3 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 3 Positive Reviews = 0.300

      3. (3 Positive Reviews ÷ 49 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.122

The Overall Average of all the Ratings in the following 

1 Reviews* is 4 out of 5

*The Average Rating only uses ratings from the 1 reviews. Ratings from the 2 recommendations are not used for the Average Rating as the rating options were limited to Excellent, Good and Satisfactory.

The staff at Hilderstone Hall are friendly and welcoming to relatives of their residents. They provide excellent activities and encourage residents to take part. Relatives are also invited to many of the activities and to accompany residents on some of the organised trips.

The menu offered is varied and nutritious, although the staff do not always remind residents that they can have alternatives to the menu if they would prefer.

Staff generally, but not always, pay great attention to the safety of the residents, sometimes forgetting to ensure that a buzzer is within reach, and that the motion-sensor mat is appropriately placed in bedrooms. There is not always a member of staff in communal areas.

Communication between members of staff is generally good, although occasionally relatives are not informed of visits and reports of outside agencies.
The staff are friendly to, and supportive of, residents, and help to make Hilderstone a home for all their residents.

My parents have lived at Hilderstone Hall since summer 2014, both with dementia and mum with cancer too. Everyone there has been marvellous - professional, caring, skillful. Mum died 4 weeks ago - again the care and compassion was incredible, with extra care for dad and concern for my own well-being. A room more suited to dad's individual needs was found. Food (buffet) provided after the funeral - 'best practice' all round.

Excellent care by staff

My mother has been a resident at Hilderstone for 12 years. Throughout that time she has had excellent care. The staff are quite mature which is comforting to residents, than having very young staff, who can't relate as well. They assist with meal times where necessary. The staff have shown extreme patience and care when dealing with her individual needs. There is a good social calendar if the resident wants to join in.
