Reviews

9.5 The Haven has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.500)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for The Haven is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Haven in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 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 4.75 for The Haven is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Haven is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 3.4 positive Reviews (17 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 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.

Up until his recent death, my father had been a resident at The Haven for over four years.
During that time he had received the best possible care from knowledgeable and caring staff. He was always treated with dignity and respect and his safety, well being and general health were a top priority for all staff. Problems or concerns were dealt with quickly and efficiently by management and communication between myself and the home was always excellent.
Over the years my father enjoyed a variety of activities within the home including gardening, baking, interest table and social events, he especially enjoyed the visits from the 'Music Man'.

Recently the resident's lounges and dining room have been refurbished creating a lovely homely feel for residents and visitors alike.

My mother who has dementia is a resident at The Haven Droitwich. This is a very local care home specialising in dementia care and is the prefect fit for my mother's needs.
The home is small enough to give a very personal service to my mother and family. Dementia brings many problems with care and the owner, manger and staff are excellent.

The Haven has been providing the most wonderful care for my 92-year-old mother for the past three years. The staff are very caring, kind and well trained and go out of their way to ensure that all my mother's needs both physical and mental are always catered for. The property is well maintained having just undergone an extensive refurbishment program and all the rooms are all of a good size offering bright, warm and cheerful accommodation for the residents. My mother feels safe and secure at The Haven and particularly enjoys the fantastic home cooked food.

My mother-in-Law was resident at The Haven for over 5 years until she passed away a few weeks ago. We specifically chose The Haven because of its Home-from-Home atmosphere and friendliness. She was well cared for and she particularly enjoyed the home-style cooking. The staff were compassionate and caring and, when she was able to do so, commented on how happy she was in the home.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this home - I have been required to visit over 200 homes throughout England in a professional capacity and would rank this home in the top 10%.

We would like to thank all the staff for their care and attention afforded to her in her final years.

During my parents stay at The Haven I was very reassured to know that they were receiving excellent care and attention from all the staff who I felt had the best interests of my parents at heart. All the staff showed genuine warmth and compassion when dealing with my parents at a very difficult time. The whole family felt welcome when visiting which was a comfort during this difficult period of our lives.
