Reviews

8.9 Pax Hill Care Home has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.863)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Pax Hill Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Pax Hill Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 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 4.506 for Pax Hill Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (83 Excellents x 5) + (66 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 154 Ratings = 4.506

  • 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 4.357 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Pax Hill Care Home is based on 7 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 19.6 positive Reviews (98 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 19.6 Target = 0.357

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

I have lived in Pax Hill Care Home for over ten years, firstly in the old home that was originally owned by Lord Baden Powell.
We came to the new building several years ago and except for a blip or two, it has been a happy time.

From the day we first made contact with Pax Hill Care Home, we were met with a warm, open and friendly welcome and this has been there ever since.

The staff without exception have been most helpful, pleasant and understanding. They treat my mother with respect, dignity and good humour. She has settled in and is happy.

The nurses have responded to her health needs promptly and kept us informed which is very reassuring for us. Social activities are good and we are given plenty of opportunities to join in.

Very welcoming girls (care staff) efficient, kind and charming. Well-run, nice people and accommodation. Food is boring - would like stewed fruit (essential) - would like more variety, quality was good but would like a wider range. Enjoyed residents company - lovely location, relatives made welcome. Availability to Doctor good. Beds comfortable and slept well though used to a wider bed at home. Pleased to be allowed my mobility scooter in the building. Appreciate ground floor location and easy access to fresh air.

My mother has been at this care home for five years after a serious fall which caused her to need two people to care for her. I have always felt safe leaving her in the care of this home. On all shifts, there has been no staff who have not been very patient and respectful of her. The staff are mostly foreign with spoken English that is very good. Food fresh, modern facilities, a larger communal lounge might encourage more to leave their rooms. Varied activity programme though not many go outside or physically get exercise a little expensive.

I have been a resident here since June 2016. I was made very welcome, I am very comfortable, I have all the assistance I need. Pax Hill is set in beautiful surroundings in the Hampshire countryside. The grounds are well maintained and enjoyable.

The general ambience at Pax Hill is one of comfortable efficiency. The buildings are warm, the public rooms well-furnished and the private rooms are of reasonable size, furnished to the standard a good hotel.
Food is generally good and is served in a dining room or in residents’ rooms.There are four levels of staff, housekeeping, carers, nurses and management. The housekeeping teams keep the place very clean and tidy; the carers, who provide personal care and generally look after residents, are all courteous and competent, some more than others. The nurses supervise the carers and provide medical care at district nurse level if required. The local doctor visits once per week, with the surgery on call in an emergency.
I have been at Pax Hill for two and a half years and have been quite happy with the conditions and service rendered.

The staff are always very friendly and helpful. They have to my knowledge always treated my mother with dignity and courtesy. The plan form of the building is interesting and disguises the size and institutional nature of the building to good effect.

In general communication OK but could be a little more forth coming with information about resident and health/medication being administered. Staff all very friendly and pleasant to talk to. Always get tray of tea and biscuits on our visits. They keep the place very clean and fresh, would recommend others to visit and look around.

As a visitor I am always made to feel welcome, given tea and comfort/reassurance. As the daughter of a resident I am kept informed of changes and small celebrations. There are lots of opportunities for me to involve myself in the life of the home, summer fete, coffee mornings, bingo! I receive newsletters and photos. My mother receives great care. The staff know her and her needs very well. She is treated with respect and kindness. She loves her carers and they return feelings of warmth and fondness.
