Reviews

8.4 Sweyne Court has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.415)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Sweyne Court is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sweyne Court in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 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 4.2 for Sweyne Court is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.2

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.215 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sweyne Court 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 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 8.6 Target = 0.465

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

Mum moved into Sweyne Court in March when we realised that due to her dementia it was not safe for her to live on her own. My sisters and I visited the home unannounced and we were immediately impressed with the way the carers put the resident's needs first, even when showing round a prospective new client. This was very important to us. The carers are respectful of Mum's personal needs, she likes to shower every day and they help her dress so she still looks nice. She was able to bring her own clothes and familiar belongings with her. Mum's room is cleaned every day and her clothes and bedding are all cleaned on site. Mum loves the outdoor courtyard and enjoys the regular BBQ's and activities. She enjoys visiting the on-site hair salon each week. Mum sometimes gets confused but all the staff handle her and the others with dignity. The doctor visits regularly and Mum's medication is being closely monitored rather than just being repeat prescribed. When we go home after visiting, we feel secure in the knowledge that mum is being well cared for and is safe. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sweyne Court.

Hayley Gibbs, Home Manager at Sweyne Court responded to this review on 18 Sep 2017:

Thank you! :) We aim to provide the highest quality of care all comments and suggestions are always helpful on what we do well or what we can do better.

I visit my husband every day so I know the carers have got to know his ways, I feel confident with the care and attention they give him.
I appreciate everything the carers do for my husband, I have a very good relationship with them and they always take into account any suggestions I have regarding his care. I feel they respect my feelings as sometimes it can be upsetting seeing my husband in a distressed mood which affects me greatly. Sweyne Court is now my husbands home and the carers are like another family to him and when I leave him I trust them with his care and well being.

Thank you for your feedback. We aim to provide the best care for each individual with a passion for care and create a zest for life, please join us at our next residents and relatives meeting 24/07/2017 so we can discuss ideas and choices for the kitchen.
Kind Regards

Whenever I visit the facility is either very clean or in the process of cleaning. The staff are, in general, caring and considerate of the residents needs.
For those who are unable to dress themselves perhaps more attention could be paid to dressing them in suitable clothing for the temperature (Winter/Summer) but obviously this would mean either more staff (extra cost) or staff with more time available.
I do not know if more funds could be available to " beautify" the ladies, skin cream etc, (who seem to be in the majority) to maybe help them feel better about themselves. This review is from a male so the above sentence can ONLY be truly evaluated as regards it's validity by a female!!

Thank you Mr B, the ladies and gents are offered to spend time every Monday with the visiting hairdresser who is very accommodating and also attends on Bank Holidays, we also have a lady who visits the home every other week and offers a range of relaxation therapy, hand massages and other treatments to our residents. She also offers private sessions for those who wishing to relax in there own room rather than a group session. We will look into other alternatives for our residents to have a wider range of choice. ;)

Home well, staff excellent. Room does need updating. Food excellent. More care needed with personal clothing, was in home for a week but lost quite a few items, even when I said I would wash her own clothes. Day care cannot fault, excellent.
