    The Review Score of 9.542 for East Park Court Residential Care Home is based on 24 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 4.542 for East Park Court Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (170 Excellents x 5) + (101 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 286 Ratings = 4.542

      • 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 5 for East Park Court Residential Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 24 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 24 Positive Reviews = 2.400 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (24 Positive Reviews ÷ 44 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.091 (maximum score = 1)

Placing your loved one into residential care is one of the hardest things to do, so when you do, you need to know it is the best place you can find. My dad has been in East Park for almost 12 months and over that time he has settled and seems content. This is solely down to the superb staff.
The staff are the heart of the home and their patience and consideration knows no bounds. They are welcoming, happy and genuinely seem to love their work. They all have an in-depth knowledge of the residents.
If I have one criticism, it is that the home lacks a large room big enough to host some of the activities (eg. the fete). It is a shame all the residents can't get together for a 'knees up',
That said, I can't fault things and as long as dad seems happy, I'm happy.

Overall East Park Court Residential Care Home is a very friendly place. The only problem I've had is my mother's clothes were not being put on hangers after coming back from the laundry room. The drawers are left very untidy. I think there's need for more things to be going on around them. The television is on but no one watches it!! Perhaps some old songs (cd's) played would suit them better.

Linda Lovatt, Home Manager at East Park Court Residential Care Home responded to this review on 06 Oct 2016:

“Thank you for your review and your comments about East Park Court being a friendly home.
“I can assure you that our laundry team return clothes to their hangers or fold them away neatly into drawers. Sometimes residents do go in and check their clothes or simply have a look for an item of clothing and this can often leave them looking untidy.
“We have a dedicated Activities Coordinator who provides activities in the mornings and afternoons, including group and one-to-one activities, as well as a range of entertainers. The television is simply on to provide choice as we do have residents who enjoy watching their favourite programmes.
“We really welcome feedback from residents and their loved ones so if you would like to see a certain activity taking place, or have a chat about anything else, then please do let us know – my door is always open.”

My father has got a lovely room with a pleasant outlook. The carers are very caring and kind towards my father and I have witnessed care and dignity shown to other residents and a lot of patience. There are activities planned every day by an activities co-ordinator. The lounges are very pleasant and the dining room is always laid out very nicely with flowers on the tables.
I have seen very nice food (home cooked) served. There is a nice garden. I think the management and staff try to make all the residents feel as happy as they can be. It is a caring environment, and a lot of cheerfulness, laughter from staff trying to make people feel better. I would recommend this home to people.

From day one (10th February 2016) I can't speak to highly enough of the service and the way my mother has been looked after. The manager and her staff have been absolutely brilliant in every dealing my sister and I have had with them. They are caring, always have time to discuss anything with you and more importantly make you feel confident in the home.

At East Park Court, mum, indeed each of the residents, is treated with kindness, compassion and attention to detail. From the trauma of coping along with dementia and other medical problems, mum is now relaxed and much better in herself. She is safe, very well looked after and increasingly enjoys the company and the activities. She said, 'I feel that I have found myself here'. Mum said she feels as if she is part of a community.

I was concerned when I was told that Mom was going into a care home but after talking to the staff on the telephone and visiting mom I am really happy with how she has settled in and how she is being treated by ALL the staff. As I live 200 miles away in Weymouth and cannot get up to see her much as I would like it is reassuring to know how happy and content she is and how good she is being treated.
