The Homestead, Exmouth, Devon

Entrusting someone else with your care is always a big decision. As such, The Homestead's strong local reputation in successfully delivering professional elderly care for over 25 years is something the home is very proud of.

Residents at the home enjoy a friendly, happy, homely atmosphere - while also receiving the highest standards of care. The home's staff are highly trained - and genuinely care about their residents. And as a smaller home, they really get to know them as individuals and have the time to pay attention to the little things.

In addition to best-in-class care, the home offers a range of daily activities, multiple tasty meals and high-quality accommodation.

The Homestead's services include those looking for long-term residential care, short-term overnight care (for example, to recover from a fall or to give a live-in carer a well-deserved break) - and also day-care, where you may choose to join the home's residents and staff for a cup of tea and a bath - or even spend the whole day here, dining and joining in activities with the home's friendly little family.

Reviews

8.5 The Homestead has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.468)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for The Homestead is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Homestead in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 3 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 4.343 for The Homestead is calculated as follows: ( (13 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 4.343

  • 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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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 4.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Homestead is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered beds ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target = 0.625

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

Having looked at 20+ online establishments this was one of only 5 we eventually looked at. Having a very creditable CQC score. Our first visit and impressions were excellent. The staff being cheerful, helpful, compassionate and informative. The residents being treated with dignity and respect. Whilst not the nearest establishment to us, this was the place that my wife and I felt would give my mother her last few months/years in a place she could still call home.
