Reviews

8.9 The Cedars has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.876)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for The Cedars is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Cedars in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.1 out of 5 from 4 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 4.809 for The Cedars is calculated as follows: ( (39 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.809

  • 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 4.067 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Cedars is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 12.6 positive Reviews (63 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 12.6 Target = 0.317

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

I visit my mother who had been staying at The Cedars a few weeks now. I find the management and the staff team very caring and friendly even if you are a visitor or a resident. My mother finds staying at this care home very happy as she feels she is very well cared for and feels safe. I would like to give a big thank you to the team at The Cedars for looking after my mother. Thanks for making my Mother and myself welcome.

I had visited my grandma last week and she was looking more chirpy than ever. She was telling me about all the new activities she has been doing and how the staff are all happy. I had taken a look at her room and I can see the company have done some refurbishments to her room as I stated to them that the light was not working and the carpet was slightly out of date. They had immediately taken action and I could see they were doing a refurbishment across the home which is always a good thing, not for myself but for all the residents.

I feel the home is going in the right direction now as we all know the home had a few problems with the old owners.

I was a bit sceptical about the home being taken over however since the takeover the home looks more presentable and the staff are working more as a team than before. I can really see the changes and I hope they keep this up. Clearly, the new company know what they are doing. I must say the staff morale is much better and they always have time to stop and have a chat and they are doing a fantastic job looking after my sister.
