Reviews

9.6 Cameron House has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.648)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Cameron House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cameron House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. 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 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.648 for Cameron House is calculated as follows: ( (148 Excellents x 5) + (60 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 216 Ratings = 4.648

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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 Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    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 maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users 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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cameron House is based on 14 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 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I will pass these lovely comments on to our team.

The staff at this care home are excellent although often under pressure.
With the number of dementia cases, they need more staff.
Staff are friendly and hard-working, kind and considerate. Food is excellent.
The furniture in the lounge could do with updating but this is Larkswood and the standard of care is more important.

My mother has only been at Cameron House since November 2017 but I have been pleasantly surprised by the care and concern and professionalism of the staff.

Any queries are dealt with promptly and efficiently. There is a pleasant atmosphere in the home and my mother has been helped with her personal care by the staff with cheerfulness and dignity. The home is always kept clean and fresh.

My mother has lived in this care home for quite a number of years. Over this time she has been cared for by interested well-educated staff in an encouraging atmosphere. My brothers and I certainly think she has lived well and for so long because of the care she receives.

Cameron House is extremely well managed throughout. From the staff, food choice and the overall appearance of inside the building and also the garden's outside. It gives me peace of mind to know that my mum is in very experienced hands and is safe and secure.

My mum was admitted to Cameron House just 4 weeks ago. She has settled in well and the staff have cared for her with kindness and dignity. Unfortunately, she is bedridden and unable to take part in activities which is a shame as it would have been nice for her to enjoy this part of the establishment.
The cleanliness is very good and she always has clean nightdresses and bed linen.

Cameron House is a lovely care home beautifully furnished, light, bright and welcoming. The manager is absolutely brilliant and only too happy to sort out any problems or queries, all the carers do their job well with patience and understanding. The food is excellent and plentiful. I could not wish for a better place for my husband.

Thank you for your positive comments they will be passed on to the team.

My mother has been in the home for five days, she is not easy at the best of times but her dementia is getting worse yet the staff have been loving, caring and understanding at all times. Facilities are clean and tidy. The food is excellent.
My only concern was my mother's clothes, she is happy to wear her nightshirt during the day, I believe the problem was with her not the staff

Mum's dementia suddenly got a lot worse following an infection and we quickly had to find help for her. She could not look after herself and had no sense of time or place. We found Cameron House close to mum and we are so pleased there was a place and she was accepted. We no longer have to worry about her a she is in the best of care. Her medicines, her fluids and food intake, her cleanliness and dressing are all supervised. The home is clean, rooms are good and there are always activities being put on.
The staff, management, everyone is so caring, helpful, patient and are just brilliant.
Whilst mums dementia will not improve her overall health and wellbeing has enormously. Thank you so much

I have found the manager of this home to be very informative and very helpful. My mother had problems settling in but was helped on every level to adjust to her new life in a care home. We were able to place a lot of her own belongings in her room which made things familiar for her which helped her settle.

Kim Jeeves, Home Manager at Cameron House responded to this review on 12 May 2017:

On behalf of our team, I would like to thank you for your lovely reviews.

Brother settled in well but doesn't join in activities but that's just the way he is. Cleanliness absolutely excellent, food choices are very good and cooked well. Staff friendly and level of care excellent. The expense of this and mainly all care homes is unfair, especially to people who own their own houses as people who don't get the same care! For free! Or at Government expense! My brother was a rear-gunner war hero, helped Great Britain win the war, was so brave and worked hard but is penalised, he deserves to be looked after at this high standard without losing his home.

Mum has been a resident at Cameron House for 18 months and is in a reassuring and caring environment. Many of the staff have worked together for a long time and create a great atmosphere for all who come to stay or visit. This is not a care home, it is a home that cares.
