Reviews

9.8 Thornfield Care Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.767)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Thornfield Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 29 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Thornfield Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 20 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 4.767 for Thornfield Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (277 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 348 Ratings = 4.767

  • 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 Thornfield Care Home is based on 20 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 7.6 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.

Thornfield is a great place for residents. Not only is it always clean and tidy, the staff are great and there are lots of activities for residents to take part in.
They have done a lot of work in the last 18 months, improving the building and re-decorating rooms etc.
I wouldn't want my mum to be anywhere else!

When first entering the home, the old Elvis era hits you straight away.
The upbeat music and the bright colours create an atmosphere like no other.
The friendly faces (staff as well as the residents) makes Thornfield a pleasurable, relaxed and enjoyable location to be.
It is a home away from home.

The home is always clean, bright, well staffed and well maintained.

All the public areas are decorated in bright (but not too bright) colours and lots of pictures relevant to the residents (old movie stars, old advertising etc.).

The staff seem to care about the residents' welfare and they are all treated with respect.

One thing that stands out for me compared to other homes that I know of is the number of activities - apart from Sundays there is an activity (or 2) every day.

Oh - I mustn't forget the food - I've only sampled the cakes and they're fantastic but Dad loves the puddings - they do look good! - it's fortunate that some of my visits to see Dad coincide with afternoon tea time!

Choosing a care home is both challenging and emotional. My Sister and I agonised over the whole process. We looked at the CQC reports, listened to personal recommendations etc. From the moment of our first contact with Thornfield Care Home, we were met with genuine friendliness, compassion and understanding. With their amazing help, my Brother-in-Law's move from his home was seamless and he is settling well into his new environment. The hardest part can often be for the family of the person with Dementia but here again, Thornfield scored highly, they care for us all.

My mum was resisting care, however as soon as she entered Thornfield she is so happy - a changed woman in fact. I couldn't fault the care provided. Mum has a new lease of life and all problematic behaviour has disappeared as has her stress. The home is full of love and laughter and activities abound with an emphasis on music, which all enjoy.

I have visited Thornfields many times and find all of the management and staff to be very professional, friendly and easy to chat with. The cuisine is excellent and freshly prepared, plenty of activities for all the residents.
I have visited other residential care homes and this is by far the best.
Lovely big garden to sit and relax in the sunshine. Good choice of rooms even one with a nice bar inside which a lot of residents seem to use.
Location wise it is 2 minutes away from seaside which I found to be excellent and very relaxing to when taking my mother out for the day.

Thornfield's have been amazing helping my mum to transition into residential care. The staff have been very warm and caring in supporting my mother, she started as respite and is now requesting a more permanent stay because she feels so safe there.
Management have been very supportive and have kept us informed throughout. I would not hesitate recommending Thornfield's to anyone.

The environment is so beautiful, stimulating and relaxing. Staff are always cheerful, smiling and approachable, a real buzz there!
Nothing is too much trouble, even down to encouraging us to provide whatever we felt would provide as close to home from home experience for mother's room.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO THEM ALL.

I hope he can stay there.

The staff are fantastic and offer great support. Management is accessible and responsive. The building is not the best - converted private house, narrow corridors. Furniture good.

Entertainment available, but my wife usually refuses to participate. Possibly more summer visits? I like the staff not having uniforms - 21st century my daughter-in-law (ex-nurse) called it.
Kitchen, reception, office and laundry facilities - all very small and cramped. Well done to those who have to work in them.

My husband was admitted to Thornfield directly from Sidmouth community hospital. The day of admission was his birthday and when he arrived in his room he was greeted by the manager and three staff and given a lovely Birthday cake which he was thrilled by. I have visited several times each week since and have been delighted with the care and consideration shown to all of the residents. Extremely warm and friendly staff and most efficient caring shown to residents and visitors.

Having worked both within the NHS and the private domain as a Health Care Professional for over 20 years, I feel suitably qualified in describing Thornfield Care Home as amongst the very best care providers and environments I have ever encountered.
The staff and management combine dedication, attention to detail and the utmost professional standards with relaxed, informal person-centred atmosphere.
It is of no surprise to me that it has already achieved recognition for its outstanding work and I can only echo this and recommend in the most glowing terms.

Dad was welcomed to Thornfield Care Home by everyone and settled very quickly. He enjoys the activities and food. He has come to accept Thornfield as his home. Since arriving at Thornfield Care Home I have noticed dad has become more engaged and "with it" I presume this is due to the activity he enjoys in the home.

My father settled very quickly into the home due to the helpfulness and kindness of the staff. He particularly enjoys his food and so is looking forward to every meal especially the 5 star dessert! There are many activities going on throughout the day and staff passing him giving him a few minutes time to have some conversation. The visual stimuli are fantastic- a view into the past and something for relatives to talk about with the resident. The care is just fantastic they truly are caring "angels!"

Both parents are currently in this excellent care home on a respite basis with a new to permanent occupancy in the future. The staff and both managers have all been really helpful in assuring the family and most importantly settling mum and dad into their home away from home. The home has a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and many lively goings on. All care needs are gently administered by caring staff.

Outstanding home.
Very caring staff that meet all the challenges that dementia brings, there's never a dull moment.
I really do feel that there are no negative points towards this particular home, my mother in law, a resident for eight months, seems to be very happy.
A safe, secure environment is what she needs nowadays and we, as a family, unfortunately could no longer offer that safety.
No matter how heartbreaking the decision was, having to admit to ourselves, that we couldn't continue to give the quality of life that she deserves, we have absolutely no regrets about placing her in Thornfield.
All the staff have a very friendly, professional attitude towards family members when visiting, but more importantly they have the same attitude towards the residents they are caring for.
If you are reading this review, it no doubt means that you are considering a place for a loved one.
I can only say, from our own experience that Thornfield was the correct choice for us, but once again, more importantly, it was the best choice for her. She is safe, she is happy, and in her own delicate mind, she is home.

After having been told all my life by my Mother that she would come back and haunt me if I ever put her into a home, the time came when I no longer had a choice. After researching and visiting over 12 care homes in our area I was at the end of my tether and nearing a nervous breakdown. I really thought I was never going to find a care home suitable for my Mother. I almost gave up until I happened upon a list where the name Thornfield in Seaton popped up. Seaton is a place we love and the town where my dogs veterinary surgery is. Jonah (that's my dog) was due his annual jab, I had nothing to lose, so care home number 13 (unlucky for some) but Soooo lucky for my mother and myself was my next care home to see. I promptly made an appointment and arrived the very next day to be greeted by the sounds of Elvis Presley and the most wonderful lady who instantly made myself and my husband feel at ease. We were only 2 minutes in to our visit and I new this was the Perfect Place and new home for my Mother.
Consequently she has been in Thornfield for 8 months and is as happy as a clam.
I cannot put into words how wonderful the Staff are, in all aspects from the cleaners to the cooks from the care staff to the management are tremendous. The residents, the whole atmosphere in Thornfield is truly magnificent I feel blessed that my Mother will see out her time in Thornfield and quote "If my Mammy cannot be in her own home this is the home she would choose to be in".
