Reviews

9.9 Arcot House has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.929)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Arcot House 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 54 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Arcot House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 21 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 4.929 for Arcot House is calculated as follows: ( (600 Excellents x 5) + (46 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 646 Ratings = 4.929

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Arcot House is based on 21 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 4.6 positive Reviews (23 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 21 Reviews ÷ 4.6 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.

The Management and staff at Arcot House are absolutely fantastic. The Home is friendly and welcoming. We are made to feel like part of the family by all the staff. Mum is content and well looked after. We couldn't ask for more. We are completely confident in their care of Mum. We know she is safe there. I can't praise them enough. Mum has been there for 3 years now. They are amazing.

My aunt is being cared for in the best possible way. She is 104 and her every need is carried out in the best of the ability of all the staff. The staff are always polite and spend a great deal of time making sure she is happy and content. They allow her to get up and go to bed when she wants to and not to their timetables!

I have spent a considerable amount of time at Arcot House over the last few weeks as a family friend of a resident. The care and consideration shown not only to the family but also to me as an outsider has been exemplary. Nothing has been too much trouble for the staff and every suggestion we made was acted upon. I have very good experience of both nursing and care homes, having had both parents, elderly relatives and a former partner all die in one or the other. I thought they all got really good care, but that demonstrated at Arcot House by all the staff surpasses it by far. It's a place I would like to spend final years in.

From the moment I rang to see if there was any room for my father until he died (7 weeks) Arcot House has been AMAZING. The management are super efficient. The staff treated dad like a grandfather even when he was being difficult!! We were kept informed of every development and change in dad's condition. We live a long way away (4.5 hours away) and felt totally confident to leave dad in their care for a few days. The family and friends visiting dad were treated with respect and consideration - teas/coffee/cake/meals. I cannot thank all at Arcot House enough for their care of dad in his last few weeks of life.

My father came to Arcot House after a fall. He is 98 years old and has lived independently with minimum help until then. He has been treated with the utmost care and respect, and particular attention has been paid to his wishes. As his daughter,I and all the rest of the family have been made most welcome when we visit and we have been kept up to date with his condition. Sadly his heart is now failing. As his health deteriorates, Arcot House is managing his end of life care expertly and sympathetically. As a family, we are confident that he is in very good hands.

My father stayed at Arcot House while we took a holiday in May. He has now stayed a few times and really enjoys his time there. He loves the girls who all fuss over him and make him feel special. He always comments on the food being really good and how he enjoys trips out in the Dove Bug 2 with the activities organiser. Each time he comes home with stories of how he makes new friends which helps when we ask if he would like to return again. The answer will always be yes as it is like a second home to him now. Thank you to all of the staff for making dads time with you all so enjoyable.

I have now stayed at Arcot House a few times for respite care and each time I have noticed improvements. The home is looking really nice, clean and has a lovely homely atmosphere. It has been refurbished to a very high standard in the last few months, which I like. The staff are so welcoming and friendly, I think of them as extended family. I now look forward to my stays here and meeting everyone during activities provided by the home. I look at it here as my second home now. I would really recommend a visit.

My mother has only been at Arcot House for two weeks but is already feeling very much at home. From the minute she arrived she and we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the staff, who have all been very kind and friendly. My mum loves her room, is being very well looked after and is enjoying the tasty meals. She was understandably very apprehensive about moving to a care home, but it has been a very positive experience for both her and us and we are very grateful to everyone at Arcot.

As the main relative of a resident in Arcot House I can honestly say that every aspect of the home has impressed me. The patience, love and care exhibited by managers and staff is exemplary. The furnishings are tasteful and comfortable. Outings are many, varied and interesting and each resident is treated as an individual and the staff bend over backwards to meet their special requests and requirement. I would be very happy to live here myself.

Mum has been at Arcot House since May 2014. I have nothing but praise for the staff. Mum is treated with care and kindness at all times. Everyone is so friendly towards us her family as well as to the residents in their care. I can think of no nicer place to live if 'home' is no longer
an option. It is a wonderful caring, friendly environment and knowing that mum is receiving such a high level of care helps to give us some peace of mind. We are extremely grateful that mum is being cared for in such a lovely place with such caring staff. I would be happy to recommend Arcot House to anyone.

The friendliness of all staff is encouraged by the pictures allowed in my room.
Freedom of movement is allowed to some degree as I'm not allowed to "travel on my own".
The d├ęcor of the home whilst I have been in residence has all be attended to in a grand manner.

An excellent quiet, secure and comfortable home where mum feels safe and she can be cared for all day and night. She has always been happy when we visit and she is clean and tidy. She seems very comfortable with the carers and responds to them all well. It is great to know that she is being looked after so well, each and every day. Thank you all so much.

All in all, the staff are very pleasant and helpful, and the home itself is nice. There have been times due to staff shortage, where I have had to make Nan's bed, and empty sanitary bins. The atmosphere is generally a nice one, though there is always room for improvement. Nan's personal care could be better, but that depends more on Nan allowing them to help her. There are some outstanding members of staff who go the extra mile to be kind, considerate and helpful.

Keith Mills, Director at Arcot House responded to this review on 11 Dec 2015:

There has been no occasion since Doveleigh Care Ltd bought Arcot House in February this year that the home has been understaffed. As part of our quality assurance service, our staffing levels are regularly reviewed using a dependency score system.

My father moved into Arcot house in June this year. From the start of his stay the level of care from all members of staff has been excellent. The home is well managed and we are always kept informed of any issues. The quality of furniture and room decoration is very good and the food provided is of good
quality.
I was always concerned about the quality of care that my father would have but Arcot has more than exceeded my expectations

I am very happy to leave Arcot House after visiting my husband. The staff always are very welcome, pleased to see with a smile, making it a pleasurable visit. It is very reassuring to leave knowing he's in such good hands. He is very well cared for socially with a library and lounge with first class easy choices with a multiplicity of games, an excellent fish tank with a very pleasing selection of tropical fish. There is a Stannah chair lift easy access to individual rooms. The dining room is a show piece with staff in attendance, it is a pleasure to dine.

I feel like heaven when I am home in Devon, to look out the window makes my cares go away. The girls are so kind they leave the rest behind. The girls are so nice - they're sugar and spice. The Manager is fair and she is always there to provide the love and care.

My Mother has recently moved into Arcot House and is settling quickly. My Parents both received a very warm welcome by the Arcot Team with my Father being encouraged to visit whenever he wishes. Dad has lunch with Mum several times a week which has helped them both to accept the situation and it is good that Dad feels a little bit spoilt as well. We have been able to personalise Mum's room and bring in her own furniture and pictures making it feel more like a home from home. Since her admission Mum has had a few falls but the staff have responded to this by introducing measures to minimise the risk and by encouraging her to mobilise, which has helped her balance as well as strengthen her legs.
Arcot House is very clean, bright and fresh smelling. There is a good activities programme and Mum has been out to the local garden centre for coffee already. The food is well presented and there is a choice on the menu with different diets accommodated.
Mum has only lived at Arcot House for a short period but we are all very impressed with the home and staff and would recommend Arcot House to anyone who needs care and companionship.

All the staff were excellent, very caring, helpful and friendly. The food was also very good and the staff assisted me as necessary at meal times. I was at Arcot House for nine days respite care and felt very "looked after" during my stay. Although wheelchair bound I still went out on two trips to the coast in their mini bus with the carer and enjoyed them. Thank you all.

From the moment that my aunt became a resident at Arcot House she has been looked after extremely well. The staff are cheerful, efficient, welcoming and extremely thorough. The house is very clean and the staff make sure that all aspects of my aunt's well-being and needs are catered for. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff who make it a point of really knowing their clients. The staff under the excellent management have made life at Arcot for my aunt extremely happy.
Considering she lived in her previous home for 93 years swearing that she would never move this is an extremely commendable achievement and speaks volumes for the dedication of all involved. It has been a great relief for our family to see my aunt being looked after so well and in such a clean and healthy environment. I am really grateful for all that the manager and her staff have done for my aunt and am full of admiration for the manner in which they carry out such arduous work in what is always a cheerful and welcoming way. The house not only provides an excellent service within the home but also take the clients out for trips around the area - something which adds much to my aunt's enjoyment and well-being. Thank you everyone

My mother has been in Arcot Care home for over ten years and has seen many changes in all this time her care has been to a very high standard. The home itself has now been updated and all rooms and communal rooms have been brought up to a very high standard. Carer are full time which means residents get to know them all and build up a good rapport with them and the carers get to know each residents needs. I understand many residents are taken out regularly to various local attractions and have entertainment in the home. Unfortunately my mothers health does not allow her to join in these activities but enjoys her many games of scrabble with a member of staff in her room. As much as possible I feel Arcot is now a "Home from Home".
