  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 5 for Seely Hirst House is calculated as follows: ( (36 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 5

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.132 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Seely Hirst House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.132

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

Both my parents have been residents at Seely Hirst House until my father passed away in March 2014, my mother is still a resident and has been for a number of years. My family and I cannot speak highly enough of the treatment that both of our parents have received. The staff are friendly, thorough and incredibly efficient. The home is always clean, warm and friendly and the quality of the food is excellent. My mum's health has improved out of sight over the last few years and I can only put this down to the way she has been looked after by the excellent staff at Seely Hirst.

My mother has been at Seely Hirst House for sixteen weeks. She came for just two weeks respite and today it has been agreed that she can become a permanent resident. When my mother arrived we didn't think she would be long for this world but the difference now is quite remarkable, despite her Alzheimer's and other problems. She has regained some spark, is much calmer and happier, besides looking clean and smart all the time.

A few years ago my mother had several days respite in another home, following a spell in hospital. That particular home made us incredibly wary of residential but the atmosphere at Seely Hirst is so, so different. I love the way that you are welcome to visit at any time and sit in the lovely modern , light lounge or patio/garden. The home cooked food looks very appetising and prepared in a clean kitchen, as you can see through a large window into this room. [The score on the door is the top 5 and reflects this.] Something that often doesn't get mentioned is the laundry but, this vital aspect is also very important and very well maintained here.

I have been impressed by the leadership which is absolutely vital to any well run business and especially in a care home. They are always looking to improve standards and you can discuss any concerns with them. Nothing seems too much trouble. The staff get to know the residents and there are plenty of smiles and laughs to cheer the day. Many of the fantastic and friendly staff have been there for years which speaks for itself. There is expertise in a variety of conditions plus appropriate regular visits from medical personnel. I can relax knowing my mother is well cared for and safe. Thank you to all the great team!
