    The Review Score of 8.411 for Hafan y Waun Nursing Home is based on 5 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 4.8 for Hafan y Waun Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.8

    • 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 3.611 for Hafan y Waun Nursing Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 5 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 5 Positive Reviews = 0.500

      3. (5 Positive Reviews ÷ 90 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.111

Mum's care has been exemplary not only in practical/practice terms but also in terms of the genuine affection for her among the staff, despite sometimes 'interesting' responses on her part. In more than 6 years of being bed bound the staff have managed to maintain her delicate skin in tact and have done everything for her comfort. I am also delighted that the path to the end of Mum's life has been carefully discussed with us, Mum's family and ensured that she has not been distressed by unsuitable interventions - her dignity and comfort have been ensured at all times. The nursing and care staff and chaplain and volunteers have also been extremely supportive of me and the rest of the family. Thank you very much to all.

Hazel Clement, Home Manager at Hafan y Waun Nursing Home responded to this review on 18 Aug 2015:

We are so pleased to read your wonderful comments and feedback which we will ensure are passed onto the staff, so thank you for taking the time to reply. The staff remember your Mother with fondness and in particular her wonderful singing which she seemed to do all the time.

While my mother was a resident at Hafan y Waun she was treated with much respect and dignity. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Individual needs were well catered for and special occasions celebrated. The staff made every effort to make the center as homely as possible allowing residents to personalise rooms. Upon the difficult time of my mothers passing, which lasted several weeks, all the staff did everything to make this difficult time as stress free as possible for the family at all times. They couldn't have been more supportive.

My mother has been a resident on the nursing unit from September 2012. She is 95 and very unwell. Throughout her time in Hafan y Waun she has been treated with love, care, respect and dignity. She has a bright clean en suite room. She has enjoyed the activities, singing, exercise, painting and visits from groups offering all manners of inside activities and performances. She is known by all the staff, we are known too. My brother and I cannot speak high enough of the wonderful team provided at Hafan.

Hafan y Waun provided excellent care for my mother. The staff were wonderful. They treated her with respect and sensitivity.
Placing a loved family member in a care home is not an easy decision. As a family, we soon felt confident that this was the right place for my mum. We were also welcomed at any time and made to feel comfortable when we visited. We are very grateful.

Mum took up residence in Hafan y Waun when she was no longer able to care for herself due to dementia. In the two years she was there she was given excellent care and enjoyed being able keep up her interests in music, cooking and crafts through the full programme of activities taking place at the care home.
We were always made to feel welcome when we visited as a family and were able to discuss Mum's care with the staff, whom we found very helpful particularly when we came to making end of life care arrangements. With many of the staff being bilingual in Welsh and English Mum was also comfortable about discussing her needs in her own language. As we live a considerable distance away it was important to feel that we had confidence in the staff, which we did.
Hafan y Waun cared for Mum's spiritual welfare as well as the physical with a chaplain and regular Sunday worship, this was very important both to Mum and the family.
As a family we have no hesitation in recommending Hafan y Waun for residential dementia care in Aberystwyth.
