Reviews

9.1 Saltwood Care Centre has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.121)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Saltwood Care Centre 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Saltwood Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 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 4.533 for Saltwood Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (67 Excellents x 5) + (50 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.533

  • 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 4.588 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Saltwood Care Centre is based on 8 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 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target = 0.588

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

Since the change in the Manager at Saltwood Care Centre, the family has noticed a step change all to the good of the home, its occupants and staff. Together with a new activities coordinator, the atmosphere and environment has to be praised. The Christmas celebrations as an example were a joy to be part of and see the happiness abound. Well done and congratulations.

Since my mother in law came into Saltwood Care home in September 2017, all the family have visited her on a regular basis. She would be the first to admit she hasn't been the easiest resident to deal with but we can only say how impressed we have been with the loving care shown by everyone towards her. We should like to thank you and wish you all a healthy and happy New Year.

My mother is a very reluctant resident of a care home, having lived at home until she was 101. The staff have been very kind and caring in trying to help her feel settled and happy. She is encouraged to participate in activities organised every afternoon, these are held in a lovely conservatory.
The food is excellent, well presented and served in a tastefully decorated dining room, which makes the residents feel valued. The family all feel we have made the right choice for mum.

After 5 months of living at Saltwood, I think I am well qualified to make comments about Saltwood.
We have activities every weekday, fundraising efforts both for our home and others.
The food covers a very wide range in vegetarian.
The gardens are beautiful and a delight to sit in when the weather is appropriate.
