Reviews

8.1 Sandbeck House has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.145)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Sandbeck House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sandbeck House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.25 for Sandbeck House is calculated as follows: ( (49 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.25

  • 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 3.895 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sandbeck House is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.395

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Before his death, my brother had seven good happy years at Sandbeck House Care Home where I frequently visited him for days out and reminisce times past in childhood. More recently I stayed at Sandbeck House following a period of hospitalisation. I cannot speak highly enough of the care, accommodation, management or staff.

Since entering permanent care my mother's health has improved dramatically and she is calm and content. She has the odd moan about boredom but she doesn't see too well so doesn't occupy herself like some of the others. She enjoys the food and thinks her room is very nice. She says the staff are lovely and kind.
I like the fact that I can visit at any time without an appointment and the staff are very quick to keep me up to date on any health issues. I doubt I would find a better placement.

My father was a resident at Sandbeck House and we were extremely impressed with the care, compassion and professionalism of all the staff team. They work extremely hard to give residents a good quality of life. They cared for my father in every aspect of his personal needs with extreme dignity. The father was made to feel at ease. I would thoroughly recommend Sandbeck to anyone needing to make the difficult decision of using residential care. I have given staff my details so if anyone needs to speak to a genuine relative I would be more than happy to speak first hand. Well done Sandbeck you are first rate.

All the staff are caring, they work very hard. It would be good ifthey could give time to get the residents walking more, the ones that could walk when they came in because once they go off their feet there's no going back. The staff put a lot into making special occasions fun and eventful.

We chose Sandbeck House as it had al friendly atmosphere, good facilities including a lift. Good levels of security with front door, secured (you have to be let in and out by a staff member). On site laundry and meals are cooked onsite and all the residents seem happy and alert. Overall it felt like a nice B&B by the sea. My mother had end stage dementia and was cared for and attended by the friendly, professional and dedicated staff. She was treated with respect. I cannot speak highly enough of this care home and staff. I was informed of every detail to do with mums care and could ring and visit anytime. We were lucky to have such a place for mum.

The staff are very helpful and friendly. Sandbeck facilities appear to be good and clean. Sometimes staff appear to be stretched to their limits but always come across as caring and have helped my father settle in after spending over a year between hospital and home care. He now seems content, a lot of this is down to the care and stability the Sandbeck staff have been able to provide.

Friendly and caring staff. Mum went from hospital into Sandbeck and they were kind and supportive helping her to settle. She enjoys the company. Her room is bright, she is always well dressed and cared for and I know that she is safe which I and her family appreciate.

The staff are the best asset to this establishment. They are so friendly and caring to both residents and relatives. All committed to giving the residents a good and lively living as is possible in the circumstances. Each resident is treated as an individual and given personal care. I would say however that the d├ęcor could do with an update and redecoration, especially in the lounges. I do feel my mother is in safe hands and I do not worry about the care she is given. She is dressed, washed and fed each day with sympathetic patience.
