The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Vecta House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Vecta House Care Home 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.

  • 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 4.861 for Barchester Vecta House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (63 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.861

  • 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 3.778 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Vecta House Care Home 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 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.278

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

My experience as a concerned daughter has been good. My mother was treated with kindness, gentleness and affection. No once did I hear anything said or done that I would have felt uncomfortable with.
I would recommend the home without question.

My mum and dad have both been lucky enough to end their days at Barchester Vecta House Care Home. One after 18 months and the other after 3 years. Both have had the care I could only have wished for. I can't thank the staff enough for everything. If anyone has had any experience of Barchester Vecta House Care Home, I have. It's a very friendly home and they have put up with me every day for each amount of time. I can't thank them enough.

My husband has been at Vecta House since 2014. I am so grateful to all the staff and managers for the excellent care he receives, I have only ever seen dedicated, caring, respectful, understanding care given to all residents. The manager and his deputy are devoted to their patients- willingly drop everything to fill in to cover absenteeism with an occasional shortage of staff. They will not just use agency staff as they feel it's so important for both patients and relatives to feel there is always continuity of care. Familiar faces to care for so many severely troubled soles. They care for the families so much and involve us in the management of our relatives. I feel the latest quality commission report was damning and harsh and the overall loyalty and dedication of all the staff is undermined. Maybe there were a few things that needed change but to deflate such wonderful care is sad.

My mother was a redient at Vecta House from March 2014 until her death in November 2016. She was treated with dignity and utmost care at all times no matter how difficult her behaviour became because of her Alzheimer's Disease. I cannot praise the staff and management highly enough. I also received great support from everyone. Any problems were dealt with promptly and efficiently.

Very pleased with the care given to my husband. He is always treated with dignity and the staff are wonderful. His room is pleasant but the en-suite could do with a facelift. The lounges are a bit tired looking too. The gardens are lovely.
The food is plentiful and well presented. A good and varied menu too. He especially enjoys the puddings. He has been in two other care homes but Vecta is the only one he has seemed settled in. They manage him very well.
