Reviews

9.5 Meads House has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.452)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Meads House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Meads House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 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 4.702 for Meads House is calculated as follows: ( (33 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.702

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Meads House 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 3.2 positive Reviews (16 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 3.2 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.

This home has looked after Mum since June 2017 and from the owners, manager and all the staff, the quality of care and friendliness is excellent. They have always been professional, kind and helpful to our family, friends who visit, and to Mum.

A well managed and run residential care home in a lovely area of Eastbourne.
Thank you, Meads House.

The care given to my mother is outstanding. All the staff know her and the family very well and understand her needs. Nothing is too much trouble. It is well run by a professional team led by a dedicated care manager. It is always clean. There is a friendly happy atmosphere and we are always made welcome, no matter what time we turn up.

I particularly like the little things that make Meads House stand out. For example; my mother is always dressed in colours that go together. They know the music she likes and play it for her. They talk to her about her past. They know what food she really likes. The team know the extended family very well. We feel we are involved in her care. I cannot praise the team at Meads House enough. In short, my mother feels loved, cared for and safe.
