Reviews

9.1 The Hornchurch Care Home has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.094)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for The Hornchurch Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.1 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Hornchurch Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.094 for The Hornchurch Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (65 Excellents x 5) + (98 Goods x 4) + (33 Satisfactorys x 3) + (5 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 202 Ratings = 4.094

  • 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 Hornchurch Care Home is based on 14 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 11 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.

I'm very pleased with the care my mum has received since arriving at The Hornchurch. All the staff involved with her care are compassionate and kind. Nothing is too much trouble and my mum's dignity is maintained at all times. Both my mum and my family are always treated with respect by the staff.

Mum has been in the home for 5 yrs. As a family, we are very happy with the level of care. Any problems are addressed immediately. Mum has a problem with communication, the carers treat her with respect and are very patient working out what she wants.

Our experience has been very positive knowing mum has good carers looking after her, treating her with respect while at the same time being very friendly and caring. The management and admin staff have dealt with any issues in a helpful way. (There haven't been many issues) The food is very good and has helped mum back to good health.

My mother was only at the home for a few months, going straight there from the hospital.
During those months she was very well cared for by all the staff.
In her own words, she was very content.
We also found the staff friendly and accommodating.

I come in every day and on the whole, I have no cause to complain. The carers are very good and if you ask one day to do something it has always been done the next day.

My aunt has been in here for 4 1/2 years and although she is unable to do anything and is in bed full time. She always seems happy.

Most of the staff are extremely good, however, some of the staff need to be more committed and understand patients' needs. Overall the home is clean, tidy and a friendly environment.

My dad arrived at the home last August 2016. He had ben in a house where he spent his entire time in his room. Since he has been in the Bupa Hornchurch Care Home, he has thrived. He is now really enjoying his food in the company of other residents in the dining room. He enjoys outings and activities most days of the week. The carers are cheerful and attentive and make him laugh

My neighbour needed nursing care (vascular dementia) and other issues.
She is 90 years old and we looked at care homes in RM13 and RM12 over a few weeks.
The home we chose was far superior overall.
The whole team at Bupa Hornchurch are on the ball, all striving for the same goal, the people they care for.
Over many years I have seen care homes where my family and friends have been.
This home is by far the best.
I'm sure my neighbour will be cared for and safe. We have kept an eye on her for 17 years and we would not just put her in any home, we feel this is a wise choice.

My mother has been a resident since August 2015 and we have been previously very unhappy. Management has changed and over the last few months improved but there is still a lot of improvement required. The rooms are small as said in a previous review, when we arrived our room was in a terrible state, we painted it for our mum in the colours she wanted but the general maintenance of the building is poor, 'maintenance man' is not good. The room was very dirty, blue tac and holes in the wall from the previous occupant, dull and dingy. Her bedding was ripped! We cried that's how upset we all were, including my mum! Decor is tired.
Mum's clothes often go missing and are often shrunk. The food isn't good, no sugar/salt in food and the cuts of meat are cheap, fatty and hard for them to eat. Soup is not palatable and cake is tasteless. Needs improvement.
The staff, in general, are helpful and friendly. The entertainment is excellent and the entertainments coordinator does a fantastic job.

We take all comments extremely seriously and are very disappointed to hear that you are unsatisfied with your experience of care at one of our homes. Our resident's health and wellbeing is our absolute priority. We would like to contact you so that we can discuss this in more detail and investigate it fully. Please, can you contact our customer services team by emailing feedback@bupa.com so that we can discuss this feedback further?

My mother does appear to be very happy and well cared for. The only unsatisfactory element is the rooms which for a long stay person are extremely small and basic. I would expect better lighting, in my mother's case, she cannot even see out of the window as the bed is in front of it, better seating areas in the room and generally more space.
