Reviews

8.3 The Seaton has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.306)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for The Seaton is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Seaton in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 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 4.306 for The Seaton is calculated as follows: ( (13 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.306

  • 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 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Seaton 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.500

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

My father was a resident at The Seaton from April 2012 until his death in November 2016. On our numerous visits during that time, we have had very positive experience with both day to day staff and management. The carers/nurses have compassion knowledge and skills to make the residents stay as comfortable and stress-free as possible while the management shows vision and understanding to the needs of people coming to the end of their lives. Overall a first class establishment with perhaps the only shortcoming being a shortage of staff at times.

The Seaton is a comfortable, friendly and caring home. The staff always make visitors welcome. They are ready to listen to and act on any concerns residents and family may have. There is an overall feel of caring and kindness. Meals are good and daily requests are met. The Seaton is situated near to the town centre so if residents with family and friends can take them out, Bus stops are very nearby and there are cafes and shops and the sea. There is a variety of activities, outings and craft projects to enjoy. My sister, who has MS, has lived in The Seaton for 3 years and is very happy and feels very at home.
