Reviews

7.9 Huntercombe Hall Care Home with Nursing has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.879)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Huntercombe Hall Care Home with Nursing 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Huntercombe Hall Care Home with Nursing in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.391 for Huntercombe Hall Care Home with Nursing is calculated as follows: ( (33 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 69 Ratings = 4.391

  • 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 3.488 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Huntercombe Hall Care Home with Nursing is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.238

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

After 7 years of caring at home for my 84 year old husband, who has vascular dementia and severely impaired vision, I cannot praise this care home highly enough. My husband has been there five months now. The kindness, thoughtful care and support from all the staff is amazing - not only for my husband but also for me and our family as we have been guided and advised through some very difficult times in these past few months.
Now I feel like one of the Huntercombe 'family' when I visit and am so warmly welcomed.
And the bonus is that I can take a pile of music with me and play the piano - music and singing being the only thing that my husband can still enjoy. It seems that some of the other residents enjoy it too!
I must also mention that the patience, kindness and respect shown by staff members to all the residents is impressive.
To sum up: for me, the overwhelming feeling at Huntercombe is one of loving care.

The friendly mood throughout this attractive, history-laden house is created by a dedicated staff who demonstrate how high professionalism can be combined with a cheerful, empathetic manner.

My 93-year-old father arrived here after hospitalisation, where he had become bedridden and uncommunicative. Yet the patient care of the dementia-trained team gently revived his spirit. He regained his dignity and was encouraged to move, interact with people, eat in the dining room and join activities. On “difficult” days, the team understand him and can sooth and coax him back to a state of comfort.

I live aboard, yet members of the team always have time to respond to my telephone calls with a frank and detailed update on my father's well-being. And this open attitude is shared by the doctor who visits the home every week.

Huntercombe Hall, with its devoted staff, is a remarkable example of outstanding excellence. And I wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful care home.

My mother has a beautiful sunny room, very large. The staff are pleasant and helpful.
As my mother is 99 years old, she eats little and does not go down to mix with other residents. It's her choice to stay in her room. Everyone seems to be as happy as they can be in their individual circumstances.

I don't manage to visit too often and it's always in the early evenings so I can't comment on too much. My father seems well cared for and he is clean and comfortable. The staff are pleasant and helpful.

I was apprehensive about coming here in June not knowing anyone who knew of Huntercombe Hall Care Home. However, on arriving in a great deal of pain I found the care I received quite remarkable. The staff are so caring, nothing is too much trouble. They have a spirit of friendship and cheerfulness I have never found before. I was so struck by the kind and gentle way the people with dementia were treated. Sometimes when they are being very difficult they treat them lovingly and win them round. After my first stay, I told my GP he could recommend this home to any family looking for care for their relatives who have dementia.
