Reviews

9.4 The Cedars has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.364)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for The Cedars is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Cedars in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 5 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 4.769 for The Cedars is calculated as follows: ( (112 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.769

  • 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 4.595 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Cedars is based on 5 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 8.4 positive Reviews (42 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 8.4 Target = 0.595

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

Dad went in at the end of February for palliative care as his heart is failing.

I can't sum up just how caring and efficient the staff have been! They have so much time for Dad, making sure he's comfortable, checking if he needs anything, being really careful and caring when taking him to the toilet or up to bed. Whatever he wants he gets. They shower him, administer his meds, rub cream on his sores, give him his nebuliser - all really professionally.

There are plenty of staff, at night as well as in the day. Dad needs nursing care and there is always nurses onsite.

The home is very airy, bright. modern and clean, no smell unlike many we looked at, and we looked at a lot! Meals are excellent - it was his birthday today and they made him a cake.

His room has a TV and walk-in shower. They have lifting equipment and know how to use it. They have activities such as dominos, skittles and bird watching.

Not much more I can think of to say other than I thoroughly recommend this home.

In September we had to take the very difficult decision to look for a home for our parents who both have vascular dementia. Our Mom was struggling to cope with Dad’s wandering at night and after keeping them in their home for as long as possible we made the decision to search for a home.
We visited several homes and were in despair at what we had seen until my sister called The Cedars. The duty staff were extremely accommodating and were told that we would be welcome to take a look around at any time to suit us.
It was completely different from anything else we had looked at previously. There was no unpleasant odour and it was like stepping into someone’s lovely home.
The room available was well presented, with its own wet room and overlooking the garden.
Mom and Dad have settled in quicker than we expected thanks to all of the staff involved. We cannot fault the staff, they are caring and hard working and have been brilliant with helping Mom and Dad settle in so well.
Thank you.

After having to find a home for both parents we found The Cedars. We immediately felt at home and knew it would be ideal for mom and dad. The Home manager and the manager of the EMI unit showed us round the newly decorated Lilypad dementia ward and the rooms each have a stunning view over the grounds and into the distant countryside. Mom and dad have settled in really quickly and consider their room to be a "private apartment". All the staff are very friendly and the support they give to us and our parents is most comforting. Thank you all for making this difficult transition for our parents a lot easier.

Finding the right care home for my Mom became a full-time mission, but on visiting The Cedars, I knew this amazing place would be home for Mom. The love, care, and dignity shown to all of the residents is totally heartwarming. Mom was the first resident in the new dementia suite 'Lilly Pad' with a beautiful large room with an en-suite overlooking wonderful countryside which made the transition into a care/nursing home very comforting. All of the staff show immense care and kindness. Just perfect.

My family and I liked The Cedars from the first day. I and my brother came to have a look around. The manager showed us around and was very helpful and we said it was a very homely place.
The staff are very very good and what they do for all the residents and are very caring. I myself get on with all the staff, I have said if they need me to help make cups of tea or anything I don't mind helping them as I love helping people myself.
Thank you for all you do at The Cedars.

Whilst walking along the corridor, I passed the open bedroom door of a bedridden resident. A care assistant was kneeling on a "crash" mattress next to a frail, elderly resident. She was speaking gently to the resident by his name and making eye contact. I was struck immediately by the caring, compassionate and humane manner in which this care assistant was reassuring this elderly person.

We are very pleased with the care my mother is getting it is so much better than her previous home. The standards are high staff are very caring and patient. The younger staff some from afar relate particularly well to her needs. Standards of furnishings, food and cleanliness are very good. The cedars is an excellent well run establishment that tries very hard to provide individual quality nursing care in a clean, comfortable home.

My blind bed-bound mother has been at The Cedars since January 2013. The care she has takes a lot off my mind. The staff are wonderful at making sure she has what she wants and encourages her on bad days. It's nice that she has a continuity of carers so that she can identify them by voice and build up a friendship. They are her extended family and what a lovely family they are.

Having visited The Cedars for a year now, I can say I have found the care and staff absolutely faultless in every respect. My mother is treated by all the staff alike as practically a member of the family and is always shown kindness, love and care of the utmost standard. We as a family are very reassured and satisfied with mums attendance and secure in the knowledge she is safe and well looked after.
