Reviews

9.5 Sedlescombe Park has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.515)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sedlescombe Park in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.515 for Sedlescombe Park is calculated as follows: ( (80 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.515

  • 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 Sedlescombe Park is based on 6 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 4.8 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.

Thank you so much for your kind words. Our carers take pride in all they do and it's great to hear that we're getting things right!

My mother has been at Sedlescombe for a number of years now and is well cared for and seems happy, always hard to tell with dementia patients. No problems at all.

Staff have taken time to get to know my mother extremely well, although she cannot verbally communicate anymore they always take time to have conversations with her and bring out her sense of humour, they are able to encourage her to smile and laugh, even on her darkest days, and that is not an easy thing to do. Sometimes I have difficulty in communicating with her myself as she is no longer the mum I once knew, but they always support me as well.

Staff have taken time to find out my mum's likes and dislikes, and these are forever changing as her dementia increases, they always endeavour to accommodate these, whether it be favourite puddings, to going out for lunch at the pub or enjoying a Baileys, her favourite tipple!

There are always events, special days, entertainment, staff dressing up, lots of things to join in or watch, from what I have seen the staff all work extremely hard and speaking on behalf of my mum I would like to say thank you! You are all amazing!

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our home. We are extremely proud of our staff for the work they do and we will make sure to pass on your lovely comments!

Mum has been at Sedlescombe Park for three months and has settled in very well. We are very pleased with the wonderful care that she receives from the staff and as a family, we are always made to feel welcome when we visit.
It is such a relief to know that Mum is getting the care she needs.

The home is so friendly its a home from home and all the staff are always cheerful! I feel safe and happy my mother is in their care. She has people to watch and talk to if she wants to, or she can sit and be quiet.

My mum became resident at Sedlescombe Park in October. She settled in really quickly with the help of the wonderful carers that look after her. We always feel very welcome when visiting and mum always looks clean and well dressed and ready for us to go out with her.
Mum also goes on regular trips with the staff and I know she would enjoy these as she has always led an active life. Thank you for the great care you give her.

This is an excellent home, staff look after residents very well. They treat the residents with the dignity and respect that they deserve. All residents are treated as individuals and staff are always empathetic to residents. Sedlescombe Park has an excellent manager who is always around the building and guides the staff with the experience that she has.
The residents of this home are always encouraged to participate in the activities, they even get out and about on weekly trips out for lunch. I would definitely recommend this care home to anyone that I know.

It was a very difficult decision to move mum into care when her dementia became severe. We now know it was the right decision and we should have made it earlier. I was dreading going through the front door for the first time but my first impression was laughter. It is a happy place.
Mum has not looked so well groomed and well fed for a long time. Obviously as it's an old building there are some constraints but buildings don't look after mum - it's the wonderful staff and ethos that do the caring. As far as we can tell, mum seems happy.
