Reviews

9.7 Huntington House has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.710)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Huntington House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Huntington House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.71 for Huntington House is calculated as follows: ( (195 Excellents x 5) + (53 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 259 Ratings = 4.71

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Huntington House is based on 14 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 7.8 positive Reviews (39 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 7.8 Target Reached = 1

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

To come here after surgery and before being able to manage at home alone was very beneficial. All the staff were attentive, patient and cheerful. The food was a bonus, well cooked, balanced with plenty of choices. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and well equipped and everywhere nicely decorated.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Langham Court Your feedback is very much appreciated and will be passed on to the team.

My mother has been at this nursing home for several months and has received excellent care throughout this time. The staff - across all areas - are very professional and dedicated and at the same time, exceptionally caring and kind. Residents are treated with great warmth and dignity and in particular, are treated as individuals. The food is very good with choices each day and a range of alternative options and the rooms are very comfortable and kept very clean. Outside, the gardens are lovely and on a level for residents to be able to enjoy easily. There is an excellent activities and trips programme too.

All the team want to thank you for your feedback and for bringing such fun and laughter to every occasion within the home.

Very satisfied with the care my mother has received even the past (nearly 3) years. Home is bright, friendly and nicely "non-corporate".
The attitude of staff towards residents is warm and respectful. Food generally good although occasionally disappointing.

My father and mother have lived in his excellent nursing home for 9 and 3 months respectively and are very happy there. The premises and facilities are luxurious and cosy, their rooms are spacious with en-suite facilities and lovely views of the beautiful grounds. The food is 'just like home made' and served in an airy conservatory restaurant and they can order what they like during the day. Most important, the care is very good and the staff and family who run the home are fantastic - very professional but also warm, friendly and genuinely caring. So all in all, my parents feel happy, settled, stimulated, relaxed and safe in this wonderful home from home.

I came to Huntington House from the hospital on 7th March after being quite ill for 2 weeks.
All I can say is that from day one my treatment has been excellent from all points of view. I am now a different person from the one that arrived here.
2 years ago my husband, now sadly deceased, stayed at Huntington House for several weeks and experienced the same wonderful care.

I came to the home on the 6th of December as I had a fall onto soft ground in Haslemere. After visiting the minor injuries clinic, the doctor told me (after an x-ray had been taken) that I had broken a small bone in my pelvis. This presented quite a problem as, where I live, I had signed when I bought the flat that I could look after myself and cook and care for myself. Temporarily, I needed a care home to recover and be back to looking after myself.

As a result, I booked for a fortnight's care here at Huntingdon House. I couldn't have come to a better place! I have been so well looked after! The care home has cared for me so well and I am improving. After 9 days I am feeling better and the pain is better today. Thank you, Huntingdon House and all of the staff.

I came to Huntington House for post-operative care after surgery for a triple bypass and replacement heart valve. The care, professionalism and personal interaction were all of the highest standards and I have been well prepared to return to my own home.
They have worked together with my own surgery to facilitate the difficult task at the beginning to understand and work with the diet associated with warfarin medication. The care assistants are friendly, thoughtful and thorough, the food is varied and tasty and cleanliness is first class. I felt too unwell to take part in the numerous and interesting activities.

I have been surprised by the standard of service in all respects. The staff have been very attentive especially in informing health standards. Medication has been looked after and made sure that the necessary medication has been taken. The food has been excellent and even requests from the norm have been made, they have been dealt with very well. Finally another word in praise of the staff who have always been helpful, pleasant and cheerful even when some of the tasks they have to perform have not been very pleasant ones.

I moved into Huntington House having spent the previous 8 months travelling from hospital to the nursing home and this was to be my final visit to the nursing home to enable me to return home. From day one I was encased in a loving caring atmosphere with dedicated staff looking after me day and night and I am now returning home to face normal life with the help of everyone.

Langham Court is a nursing home for residents with dementia. It is an amazing home ...the staff are friendly, caring and professional. The home has adopted the Butterfly scheme for dementia which creates a family like atmosphere and caters for the personal needs of each resident. My husband is very fortunate to be here and for myself, I feel confident that he is being looked after extremely well.

Charlie Hoare, Managing Director at Huntington House responded to this review on 08 Aug 2016:

Thank you for your comments.
I am sorry you experienced inconsistencies in the staff and food. We would welcome the chance to discuss this in more detail with you, so please feel free to get in touch with us directly if you would like to provide more specific feedback.
We continually review and develop our recruitment and HR processes to ensure our staff fit with our caring ethos, and always take feedback into consideration. And, indeed, the same applies for the recipes and techniques our chefs use in the kitchen.

I have had experience of care homes in the past and Huntington House is by far best I have seen. It has a very friendly homely feel to it and staff all seem happy to work there. My mother improved so much there during her 14 month stay allowing a spell in hospital and much of this was due to the help and support provided in the home. It is note worthy that they emphasis the value of animals in aiding recovery and therapy. Overall excellent and would certainly recommend.
