Reviews

10 Vine House Older Persons Residence has a Review Score of 10 (9.965)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Vine House Older Persons Residence is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Vine House Older Persons Residence in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 12 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 4.965 for Vine House Older Persons Residence is calculated as follows: ( (220 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 228 Ratings = 4.965

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Vine House Older Persons Residence is based on 12 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 3.4 positive Reviews (17 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 3.4 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.

My mother has been in Vine House for 13 years and passed away peacefully on 13th February. The care during the passing years has been exceptional. During the last four weeks when my mother's health declined, the care and consideration from the staff was outstanding.
During her time at Vine House, there were ample things to do in the way of entertainment.
In summary, I would thoroughly recommend Vine House to anyone.

My mother was in poor health when she first came to stay at Vine House in January 2015 for respite care. The staff have looked after her so well she has stayed as a permanent residence since then. Her health is so good now thanks to the caring, helpful and thoughtful staff and management. Nothing is too much trouble for any of them. Mum considers Vine House as her home from home and loves it. I would recommend the care home, Vine House to anyone looking for care for their elderly relatives.

What really stands out for us is the most friendly warmth of this home - we find that the staff and management couldn't be kinder or more helpful in the way they look after my father and relate to his family and friends when we visit. We always find them cheerful and upbeat whatever the demands of the day bring. They also keep us well informed about his wellbeing.

We have been pleasantly surprised by the range of activities which the home arranges for the residents which enables them to socialise and stimulates their interests (e.g. games and visits by local organisations looking after owls and ponies).

We have always found his rooms clean and it is well furnished. The rooms seem to be well lit with pleasant views over the garden and the surrounding countryside.

Overall we are delighted by the way they are looking after my father and the most pleasant atmosphere of the home together with its location.

Mother-in-law moved into Vine House in October, when she was unable to look after herself in her flat. She is very happy and we are confident that she is getting the best care possible. The home is small and all the staff are very caring and know mother-in-laws likes and dislikes. She is in the best possible place for her needs.

Mum's been in here for years now and, as the Manager said, is part of the furniture! At almost 84 she's more on the ball than us, on account of the home cooking and copious cups of tea. She enjoys lively banter with all the staff, especially the Manager who is in-house court jester as well as Manager! They had owls in to visit yesterday and mum loved them and is looking forward to their return visit for the annual August garden party! Vine House is a cosy home from home and we're always sad to leave!

My aunt initially came to Vine house for a respite stay but settled in very quickly and is now a permanent resident. The primary impression I have of Vine House is that of a home not a hotel. Everyone is friendly and the staff really care about the residents. My aunt commented that the food is "like a restaurant" and enjoys her food. Her room is very nice but she spends most of her time in the sitting room as she likes the company of the residents and the staff.

As a visitor I am always welcomed and know most of the staff by their first names. The management organise various visits from local schools and the like to interact with the residents and encourage them to partake in the activities.

My aunt resisted our suggestions to enter a home for a long time but now she is very content and I am confident that she is the hands of genuine, professional and caring people who do their utmost to look after her.
