  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Cedars Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.625 for The Cedars Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (65 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.625

  • 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 3.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Cedars Care Centre 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.333

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

8.5 The Cedars Care Centre has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.458) from 8 Reviews

My Brother-in-law has been here since December 2014 and the family have been as pleased with the care that is given to all residents. The Managers give excellent lead to all the staff which brings a lovely atmosphere.

I am very impressed with this care home. The carers are very caring and friendly. The manager is excellent and the high standards filter down from her to all the staff. My Father struggles with the food and needs it to be minced up (soft food). He does not find the food very tasty but, of course, this could be down to his own taste buds!

My mother has been in the Cedar Care Home for nearly three years. She has always been treated with dignity and respect.
Her room is always kept clean and tidy. When she had a fall in the home, her leg wound was dealt with expertly by the nursing staff.
More recently she was slumping over in her chair. When highlighted, an orthopaedic chair was found immediately. this solved the problem.
We are more than happy with the excellent care.

From the time we made contact with the management at The Cedars Care Centre, we felt we were in the hands of professionals with a strong emphasis on compassion and quality of care. We were not disappointed.
Within 24 hours of our initial contact, the care home manager travelled to Cambridgeshire to undertake an assessment of my sister who was terminally ill in Peterborough Hospital.
After a successful transfer, my sister spent six weeks at The Cedars.
She received excellent care from a team of dedicated staff who were always approachable.
As someone who works in residential care, I was relieved to find such a lovely nursing home for my sister, which I would not hesitate to recommend to friends and colleagues.

On the whole, very pleased that my mother is getting such good care. However, it is not noticed when patients slip down in chairs.

My husband was in The Cedars for a year and a half. He was looked after well by caring and friendly staff. The food was of a very high standard and the home was kept very clean. There is a lovely garden which can be used in spring and summer. I would strongly recommend The Cedars to anyone considering residential care.

The team at Cedars cared for my Grandad from April until he passed away in late July. Cedars had been recommended to us and the Manager's team delivered on everything we had expected & hoped for. My Grandad was treated with the care & dignity that he and we wanted in what was a challenging & sensitive situation for the whole family as his health deteriorated. Thank you to all @Cedars.
