Reviews

9 The Cedars Rest Home has a Review Score of 9 (8.970)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for The Cedars Rest Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Cedars Rest Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 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 4.632 for The Cedars Rest Home is calculated as follows: ( (115 Excellents x 5) + (54 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 174 Ratings = 4.632

  • 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 4.338 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Cedars Rest Home 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target = 0.588

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

My father moved to The Cedars at the end of 2015 and we have been very pleased with it. They manage his needs well and have a really good understanding of how to cope with residents who have dementia. The surroundings are beautiful and the communal rooms are decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The carers get to know the residents and take a real interest in them. The manager, in particular, is outstanding. My father is happy there and the family are delighted with the standard of care and with the fact that we are made to feel welcome when we visit. I can highly recommend The Cedars.

My brother & I moved our dad into The Cedars in October 2015. He suffered from vascular dementia and various age related problems.
He recently passed away peacefully & painlessly.
Dad was very happy at the Cedars, he thought all the staff were wonderful.
We found the staff to be extremely caring, friendly & approachable, honest & hardworking.
Dad loved the food & until the last few weeks, he had a healthy appetite.
We both want to thank all the staff for the care they provided for our dad.

The staff are brilliant, very loving and caring. Always have time to tell you how my father is and any issues he's had. They also take him to hospital visits, arrange doctors and district nurse visits too. I have recommended The Cedars to a friend and she is now in the process of moving her dad in there too.

My mum has lived at The Cedars Rest Home since September 2013 and had progressively succumbed to her dementia. Throughout this time the staff at The Cedars Rest Home have coped magnificently with her increasingly difficult behaviour (constantly on the go and will not stay still, even at night) The staff are very caring and I know she is completely safe in their hands. The home is warm and clean and the food provided appears very tasty and nutritious. The staff always make sure the residents get enough fluids. There are also plenty of activities put on for the residents, although it is no longer possible for my mum to take part. There are also events through the year for families of the residents to attend such as a Christmas party, summer fete and bonfire night, complete with food and drink.

My mother moved into The Cedars around May 2016. The staff have always been pleasant, polite and accommodating. When requests have been made they have been prompt. Nothing seems too much. My mum has lost weight and reduced mobility but this is down to her not eating properly. The staff try very hard to be encouraging and she always looks to have been attended to well.

I feel that my father is very well cared for and looked after. His bedroom is warm and always kept clean and tidy. The food always appears to be hot, good quality and adequate quantities. The staff always seem friendly and caring. I don't think my father would be looked after better anywhere else.

The Cedars is a fantastic care home with extremely caring and professional staff. My mother has been and continues to be challenging due to her dementia, however, The Cedars have had the time, tenacity and kindness to make her feel at home, happy and comfortable. Many care homes would not take my mum because of this not The Cedars. First rate.

My mother has been a resident at The Cedars Rest Home for over a year, and although she has her problems, physical and mental I have always been grateful to the staff at The Cedars for their kindness, patience and professionalism in the care they provide for my mother. It is a great comfort for me to know that she is in good hands, I have got to know the staff at The Cedars Rest Home and I am pleased to note that turnover is very low. This is clearly a sign that staff are loyal and appreciated. The standard of care at The Cedars Rest Home is excellent.

After experiencing the round of a host of mediocre homes The Cedars came as a "breath of fresh air". Apart from it's beautiful location, sloping garden and well kept terrace, (which my mother delighted in at all sessions) the state of the building, the exemplary care of the staff and the competency of the management were all of an extremely high standard and this is at a price that compared favourably with any of the "competition". My mother was properly looked after both her physical and mental needs fully met and stimulated, and her final eighteen months were enjoyed to the full. The Cedars has set the bar at a level that all care homes should strive to attain. Well done! You have my grateful thanks.
