Reviews

9.9 Rose Lawn has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.864)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Rose Lawn 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 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rose Lawn in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.864 for Rose Lawn is calculated as follows: ( (166 Excellents x 5) + (24 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 191 Ratings = 4.864

  • 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 Rose Lawn is based on 8 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 5.8 positive Reviews (29 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 5.8 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.

Rose Lawn is an excellent care home. We visited over a period of 3 days and each time staff were friendly, positive and helpful. The home is spotlessly clean and fresh smelling. I was particularly impressed with the attitude that the staff displayed when interacting with the residents. It was respectful, warm and they responded quickly and positively to any requests.

My mother has been a resident in Rose Lawn care home since September 2013. I frequently visit her and I am always impressed by the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the home and the kind, caring attitude of all the carers.
It is a pleasure to visit such a happy place and the atmosphere is very homely. The kitchen staff are always willing to provide cups of tea or coffee for visitors, or meals if you wish. In the case of illness, the staff are kind, patient and attentive. My mother frequently falls over and she receives far more attention here than she would elsewhere, nothing is too much trouble. This is a lovely home. I am so pleased I found it.

My mother in law has been at Rose Lawn for two and a half years and as a family we have been very impressed with her care during that time.
she is always treated with respect despite increasing problems with dementia. Staff are friendly and caring. Management is professional and detailed in their drawing up of care plans. Facilities at the home are constantly changing for the better, with a new call system, lift and redecoration of the lounge in recent months. Activities are innovative and appropriate.
The food is second to none. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, and visitors to residents are all welcomed into a warm and friendly family this is Rose Lawn.
A big thank you to all staff.

We are very grateful for the care she is being given.

Mum came to Rose Lawn at the end of February beginning of March. The home made her very welcome and comfortable. Mum is so much happier as she can interact with other people rather than a lonely existence at home. There are lots of activities to keep her occupied and her mind active. The rooms are clean and tidy with mementoes from home. The staff are friendly and caring and nothing is too much trouble. In fact it's so nice I want to move in.

It is symptomatic for an old person to resist change in particular when moving from their own home to a care home. As my wife and I were going to Australia for a month we could not oversee her care at her own flat so moved her to Rose Lawn on the basis of it being a holiday and that she could go home on our return. The holiday completely transformed her! When we returned she had decided that she wished to remain at Rose Lawn. Undoubtedly this was due mainly to the care and kindness she has received from all the staff. I am full of admiration for the way the residents are looked after and the enjoyment and interest of all the staff in their work.

My mother first went into Rose Lawn for a months respite care as my husband and I were visiting family in Australia. She was somewhat reluctant to go as she was not sure what to expect and intended to return to her flat after the month. However on our return, she was so happy and felt so much at home and well cared for that she chose not to return to her flat but decided she would much prefer to remain at Rose Lawn. It is such a relief that my formerly anxious mother is now so contented and feels safe and I cannot thank the staff enough. They are always friendly, kind and cheerful and there is a wonderful atmosphere- it is a pleasure to visit.

It is hard to overestimate how wonderful this home is. A year ago my mother would have been appalled at the thought of being in a home, but she thoroughly enjoys her life here. The care (and all staff) are so kind, caring and thoughtful, they all have a genuine desire to make their residents comfortable and happy. The Christmas party was a very special occasion with superb food, a quiz, and then exhibition dancing. All of the residents and guests had a truly amazing time but as important as this the carers looked as though they were thoroughly enjoying themselves- this is what makes the atmosphere so relaxed and happy. My mother loves the fact that she can join her friends for the delicious meals or she can have them in her room if she prefers. There is a wide range of very suitable entertainments, debates quizzes, art, music and visitors.

We are extremely happy with the care my mother has received at Rose Lawn over many years. The rooms are pleasant and all the facilities are kept clean and tidy. The staff provide excellent care, are very kind and patient, and go out of their way to provide personal care to a very high standard. The home has a Christian ethos which our mother appreciates adding to the kind and caring atmosphere. The location is close to the shops and with a flat walk to the sea front allows residents who are independent to enjoy living in Sidmouth. We would recommend this residential home to anyone and would be happy for other members of our family to stay there.

I came here to recover from a major operation. The fact that I leave here looking 'amazingly well' is due to the real pleasure of care I have received at Rose Lawn. Everyone from the senior to junior members of staff have been excellent, such lovely people. I am sorry to say goodbye to all, thank you.
Meals very good, dinging attractive.
I cannot fault anything here. Just keep on doing what you do!

My Mother had the pleasure of living here until recently. I support the other positive reviews here; it is indeed a safe, loving and caring place for a loved one. How they seem to attract the kindest and most motivated staff I have had the privilege to observe I don't know. When my Mum became very ill, I needed to visit at all hours of the day from London. I was always made welcome. Never did I witness any resident being treated in any other way than with warmth and as an individual. It may not have the swankiest rooms or biggest car park in the world but the can-do ethos of this incredible place more than makes up for this.
