Reviews

9.7 Regent Residential Care Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.675)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Regent Residential Care Home 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 27 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Regent Residential Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.675 for Regent Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (237 Excellents x 5) + (68 Goods x 4) + (17 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 323 Ratings = 4.675

  • 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 Regent Residential Care Home is based on 17 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 12.8 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.

Mother has been a resident now for 13 months. She is very happy and settled. I do not need to worry if she is alright as all the staff treat her and the other residents with tenderness, love and respect. The staff work very hard to make it a happy home.

My mother has been at Regent House for over 5 years. In general, she has had good care. Every time I have addressed a specific problem it has been dealt with quickly. Due to the high turnover of staff, lack of continuity in care seems to be a big issue but I have found all the staff to be unfailingly polite and helpful.

A lovely, clean and bright care home. All staff are very caring, polite and respectful of resident's needs. Food is well cooked and varied and plenty of choices and well presented. Nice private gardens with plenty of furniture for residents to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. My mother has been there for four years and has been extremely happy.

Our mum moved into Regent in August 2016. She settled in very well and to know she was safe and being looked after by such caring staff was a weight off us. On her good days she is happy and to hear her laughing again is a joy.

Residents are clean and most appear to be happy. Staff are friendly and helpful. Residents are encouraged to participate in activities and entertainment. Medical care is good but relatives are not always able to have contact with medical staff when visiting their relative. Occasionally my relatives bed has not been made by afternoon and she finds the bell for assistance irritating as it often rings in the corridor for a long time in the afternoon.

I have been in Regent House for four years and always found the staff very helpful.
I am helped to shower every morning and breakfast brought to my room. If there is nothing on the menu that I want I am always offered an alternative I.e omelettes, jacket potatoes etc. - I only have a small appetite.
I enjoy taking a walk in the well-kept garden when weather permits.

Overall the home and staff are very good but occasionally there is a shortage of staff. This was very evident over Christmas/New Year. Whilst the staff are good they obviously have jobs to do, it would be great if they were proactive on more occasions, just popping their heads around the door more often. It must be said that the food is excellent and the admin very good.

My mother moved into Regent Care Home in December 2015 after 53 years of living in the same house, she was understandably very apprehensive. However, the staff were always kind, considerate and caring which soon helped my mother to settle in. She required a strict coeliac diet which both the carers and kitchen staff accommodated and would always check her requirements. The home always felt homely and welcoming. Sadly my mother's health deteriorated, the support given to us as a family and the compassion and quality of her end of life care was exemplary.

My mother is looked after extremely well. The manager is very helpful and friendly as are all the staff. All the carers look after my mother very well indeed and are very kind and thoughtful. My mother has severe dementia and it is very good to see the staff are very well trained in this illness. It is a very demanding illness so the residents need a lot of understanding and patience which they receive, and staff go out of their way to look after residents. The food is also of a very high standard. I would highly recommend this care home as first class with first class staff.

I walked into Regent at Christmas and the whole home felt very welcoming and homely with a tremendous festive feel to it. Punch was even being served in the upstairs dining room. Care staff were very polite and friendly and the residents were having a sing song. It was lovely!
