Reviews

8.8 Sunrise of Bassett (Southampton) has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.826)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Sunrise of Bassett (Southampton) is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunrise of Bassett (Southampton) in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 9 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 4.393 for Sunrise of Bassett (Southampton) is calculated as follows: ( (115 Excellents x 5) + (83 Goods x 4) + (25 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 224 Ratings = 4.393

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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.

    The 4.433 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunrise of Bassett (Southampton) is based on 9 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 20.8 positive Reviews (104 registered beds ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 20.8 Target = 0.433

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

I arrived here in December 2016. I have received support in all areas of assisted living and I would like to highlight some of them.
The general manager who has been readily available to listen and deal with my concerns to enable me to settle in on a practical and emotional level.
The accounts lady, she has been enormously helpful in adjusting my bill following my transfer from another Sunrise.
The community maintenance assistant who patiently sorted out my technical and practical matters in my accommodation, thus making life easier.
The dining services coordinator who has supplied and sourced alternative types of food to deal with my intolerances and the efficient and pleasant dining room server.

I am generally satisfied with service and conditions but would prefer to have dementia sufferers separated and not allowed to disrupt mealtimes.

I believe this is a great care home. Everyone is friendly and helpful and great care is taken of all their residents. More carers would make life easier for the staff at certain times. There are many activities going on most days that the residents can participate if they require to do so. The carers and nursing staff and all volunteers are very understanding and caring. A perfect home for my Mum.

Mu aunt and uncle have lived at Sunrise of Bassett for the last 2 years. They have enjoyed the privacy of their own rooms or socialised in the many activities and trips out, experiencing friendly, adoring professional attention from the staff in all areas. My aunt passed away peacefully in her sleep age 96 at Sunrise of Bassett. During her final weeks, she was treated with utmost dignity and professional care.

My father (93) is on the basic care plan which mainly is okay. He had health challenges in 2015 (vertebra compression fracture), shingles, depression and his mobility has deteriorated. He now needs urine bottles at night but so often they are not emptied until he requests this in the evening!!
I've met with management who have said they'll address this but it's not much better. There is a very high turnover of staff which is worrying. The new manager doesn't seem to acknowledge family visitors. My father and others say when they ask a member of staff for an action it rarely happens.

The atmosphere at Sunrise is wonderful. The lady on reception so welcoming. The home always smells fresh and housekeeping excellent. Have stayed for meals which are well presented, varied and tasteful. Residents seem happy and there are always activities available for those who want to participate. Visitor parking sometimes difficult during busy times but a space soon becomes available. Lovely to have a Bistro with a super coffee machine readily available to residents and visitors alike with snacks or fruit if required.

My friends were unable to manage at home and had become malnourished and ill. Within two months (in 2014) they were back to their old selves. This month the wife had been brought very low by a chest infection but has rallied well. This would not be the case I am sure without the care and attention of the staff at Sunrise and the comfortable environment of their suite. I am very reassured that they are well cared for and that their needs will be met so my input is not essential. I think Sunrise is quite a find.

I am discomforted by apparently long "waits" by wheelchair patients. Vague messages about how long a patient will have to wait are very frustrating especially when grossly inaccurate leading to long delays.

I have been a resident here for 2 years 4 months. At first I wasn't sure when I came in I had decided in one day. However it was the best move could have made. I really love all the carers, the staff and everybody. There is such a happy atmosphere and loads to do if you feel inclined and not if you would prefer. The home and care is great and I am happy living here.

When my husband passed away in 2013 I knew it would be impossible for me to continue to live in our four bedroom bungalow in a rural part of the Isle of Wight. Our two daughters were and continue to be the support I needed and with their help I came to make my home here- in one room at first and later moved to two rooms where I have separate bedroom and sitting room, and that to me is now my home. I don't think anything can be absolutely perfect in this circumstances but I am able to join in most activities and thankful for that and also that I am mobile.

Having been here for a month in 2012 to recover after serious illness I am now a resident while my water damaged flat is being repaired. It was my decision to come here again because this in my opinion is a very well run home. There is total freedom to do as one wishes and having private rooms with en suite shower rooms is a particular plus. I would highly recommend Sunrise to anyone who can afford to stay here. Fees are high but fair for the services provided.
