Overview

The Review Score of 9.7 (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 4.7 out of 5 from 31 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 5 out of 5 from 20 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.717 for The Cedars Rest Home is calculated as follows: ( (268 Excellents x 5) + (84 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 361 Ratings = 4.717

  • 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 The Cedars Rest Home is based on 20 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 6.8 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.

Mum has been here for 2 months. She has been well cared for and enjoys the visits from the hairdresser and the manicures. We feel happy that she is safe with dedicated, caring staff attending her. The lounges and gardens are well maintained. It is lovely to sit outside in peaceful surroundings.

It's a huge decision to place a parent in a care home. I looked at so, so many but I knew I had found the 'Home' when I viewed The Cedars. The staff are amazing and I know mums care is their utmost priority. From moving into everyday care, they are supporting you as well as your parent.

Each resident is cared for as an individual. I am impressed with the standard of care and the patience of all the carers, especially with residents who may be difficult. It is also very good to see residents doing colouring in and playing simple, or should I say, easy games at a table with a carer. There are also times when a group of musicians come in and play instruments and sing. The residents respond to very much indeed.

There are televisions in all lounges which residents like to watch. At Christmas, there are trees and decorations. Residents are stimulated by various activities. I like the fact The Cedars Rest Home is not a large care home and this is good and another thing I am pleased with is my husband is well cared for.

The staff are very kind and caring and have made every effort to help my mother settle in. They have all made the family very welcoming including inviting us to meals.
This level of consideration makes a great deal of difference in this time of change.

The Cedars is amazing, they care for the residents and also care for the family members visiting. I have had many a meal with my dad in there and the food is great quality. I often visit and the staff will offer me a coffee and biscuit or cake, they really care for everyone. If I take my dad out they will offer to lend us a wheelchair, make sure my dad is prepared and ready if I inform them in advance. They will take my dad to hospital appointments and save me taking time off work. I could not be happier with The Cedars and their care levels. In fact, my friend has moved her dad into The Cedars on my recommendation and she loves it too. Over the few years I have been visiting I have never seen a carer lose their patience and their compassion towards the residents is just amazing.

The Cedars is a well presented, welcoming care home in a lovely setting. The building is well organised and maintained with period features. The staff are welcoming and caring. The environment is calm and clean.
My aunt has been well cared for here and enjoyed two years of care here.
It has been peace of mind for me knowing she is well looked after and happy.

My Father is an independent man who did not accept entry into a care home with ease. I am happy to say that the superb team of staff at The Cedars has made his transition comfortable My Father is thriving in the environment that the team works hard to provide. His health, both physical and psychological, has improved. Both he and I are relieved that his future is in such positive and caring hands.

Consistently good. Staff cope very well with some difficult residents - but always with good humour.
A staff member accompanied my father to A&E recently after he fell (turned out he broke his hip), made sure has was OK until we were able to get there.

My mother is treated with kindness and respect. The staff take great care of her health, noticing problems and responding quickly. The home is always welcoming and is well managed, always clean and there are signs of great attention to details such as seasonal flowers and decorations. My mum tells me she feels safe and very well cared for. The kitchen seems enterprising and offers freshly made good food.

My Mum was a resident at Cedars for 4 and a half years until she died at the end of March 2018. Mum was extremely happy living at Cedars and loved the staff, who looked after her exceptionally well. As a family, we were able to visit her at any time and we enjoyed their special events, such as their Christmas do and Summer fete.
Unfortunately, Mum suffered from dementia and deteriorated over the last 2yrs where she exhibited extremely challenging behaviour. I cannot speak highly enough of all the staff at Cedars. They tried different strategies in managing her and gave her time and patience. They treated my Mum with such respect right up to the end. They could not have done anymore for her. I would definitely recommend Cedars.

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.

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.

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.
