Arbory Residential Home is dedicated to providing residents with the highest quality of life possible within an active, stimulating environment. All of those living at the Arbory have dementia and it is the team's expertise in managing this need, and supporting families in the care of their relatives, which helps to ensure that residents live life to the full.

In the words of Iain Slack, the home’s general manager ‘the Arbory is a unique care setting with a team and environment which really does ensure that a home-from-home feel exists throughout’. Iain continued, ‘caring for those with dementia is a privilege for all. With the right care and support and a dedication to ensuring that each resident’s life is centred around meaningful activities, staff really can enhance the experiences of those they are here to serve’.   

Care at Arbory is not about a diagnosis; it is about caring for people, who for whatever reason now require some help along their journey. The team is committed to providing an environment and service quality which reflects the home's commitment to enhancing the lives of those it supports.

As well as fantastic facilities, beautiful grounds and a specialist care team, Arbory is proud to play an active role in the local community and is a member of the Hampshire Dementia Action Alliance.

Reviews

9.3 Arbory Residential Home has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.272)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Arbory Residential Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Arbory Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 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 4.855 for Arbory Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (71 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.855

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Arbory Residential Home is based on 5 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.417

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

My mother has been at Arbory for seven years and looks amazing for her age at 97.
This is all down to the staff and management completed by the technology 'i pod' system which provides access to my mother's health and welfare.

I visited my mother at the beginning of April and she was in such a better mood and frame of mind than the last time. I know that this has a lot to do with her dementia but I believe it also has a lot to do with the team of carers on duty. On Saturday it was an amazing team of carers who give so much to each resident and watching my mother being involved with so much made me feel very happy she is in their care and therefore yours as well. I believe that every one of them is a superhero.

My dad has settled in very well at Arbory Residential Home. It doesn't feel like a care home and is both welcoming and friendly. Every member of staff I have met is lovely and professional. As well as the homely decor, the gardens are also amazing with the fishpond, chickens, and budgies. I am extremely happy that my dad is there and in good hands. I would have no hesitation in recommending Arbory Residential Home.

My step dad was only in Arbory for 7 weeks and sadly passed away at 94 years of age. Everything in Arbory was fantastic, clean, good food, lovely room, good interaction with staff. The staff were very caring and could not do enough for my step dad and us as a family, nothing was too much trouble. We could not have wished for a better place for him to end his days.
