Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.65 for Saintbridge House Nursing & Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (43 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.65

  • 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 3.139 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Saintbridge House Nursing & Residential Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.139

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

My brother and I would not hesitate to recommend Saintbridge House Nursing & Residential Home.
Our mother spent nearly 5 years in Saintbridge House and it was very much her 'home'. The staff were nearly all regulars which says a lot and they became very familiar and almost part of the family to our mother whilst giving her excellent care and attention. She was not always the easiest of residents but she was always treated with respect, patience and with a smile. Her complex care needs were understood and treated with the competence that comes from a mixture of specialised training and genuine care. Well done Saintbridge House and thank you.

As a family, we were impressed from the start by the professional yet relaxed attitude of all the staff. It was always easy to communicate with everybody and discuss any issues that were raised and we feel that Dad's well-being, as a whole, was a priority. Though it would always have been impossible to find the perfect solution to his problems and needs, his stay at Saintbridge House was the best solution in the circumstances. He had the opportunity, as far as possible, to maintain his own sense of character and be himself and we found the staff accommodating, cheerful, caring, respectful and attentive. From our experience, the consistency of the staff and their high numbers also suggests that the emphasis at Saintbridge House is on care, both for the residents and the employees. It seems from our perspective to be a happy place to live and to work. We would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

I had never visited a care/residential home before going to Saintbridge. My Mum needed care so I looked around for a care home for her. As soon as I walked into Saintbridge it felt "right". The staff were friendly and the Manager very helpful and approachable. The home is bright and airy with a large dining room, beautiful conservatory, extensive grounds and "quiet" rooms for privacy if required. There is an excellent social team for outings etc and through fund raising they have their own minibus for these trips. There are choices of meals and all rooms are spacious and en-suite. Mum passed away in November 2015 but while she was there she was treated with respect and had excellent care from friendly excellent staff. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone looking for a place for elderly relatives. It was a lovely time for Mum while she was there.

Overall a well run establishment. Staff are always ready to help and are very pleasant all the time. Activities of some sort are daily and trips out to garden centres, social club (for bingo etc.) are twice weekly.
One small downside, management is thin on the ground at weekends, although a qualified nurse is always on duty.
