8.6 Seaview Residential Home has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.589)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Seaview Residential Home 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Seaview Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 2 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 4.783 for Seaview Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (18 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.783

  • 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 3.806 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Seaview Residential Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 3.6 positive Reviews (18 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 3.6 Target = 0.556

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

Reviewer Connection to Seaview Residential Home

  • Brother of Resident/Service User
  • Son-in-law of Resident/Service User

My review is short but nevertheless relevant and it covers his time at Seaview.
Seaview is a small establishment in what was a family residence in a quiet area of Southsea. It has been and continues to be upgraded where possible, to provide a home for approx eighteen residents in comfortable surroundings. The staff including management are well motivated and caring, and provide in my mind the essential ingredient, still the feeling of what it was once " a family home". Functions at the home are designed for residents and relations alike, which again creates a family atmosphere. "Visitors are always welcome".

My mother in law was admitted to Seaview on 21st December 2016 following a prior visit by my wife and myself to assess suitability. From the moment we walked in, Seaview screams at you "this is it" from the superb manager to the equally superb staff, beautiful rooms, facilities etc, not to mention freshly prepared food, it's like a hotel more so than a residential care home. Sadly it was an all too short experience for my mother in law, who passed away on 3rd April 2017 but in the time she was there she was cared and catered for in every possible way. In her 95th year, I'm sure Seaview made her final months as enjoyable as possible. I have already booked a place there for myself in years to come!

I am Seaview's dedicated manager, I work hard to ensure this really is a home from home. At Seaview we encourage dignity and choice this really is a place were people can settle and feel comfortable. I also ensure our staff all have an NVQ2 or 3 or are working towards it as nothing ensures good care like great knowledge.

I am Margaret I have been with Seaview for over a decade and I don't mind admitting I myself am getting on in years, We believe this leaves me perfectly placed to help decide on all aspects of our home, care and activities provided as I am in a similar age group to our residents and understand more than most what they would like.
