Overview

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Henleigh Hall Care Home 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 35 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Henleigh Hall Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 28 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

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 4.403 for Henleigh Hall Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (197 Excellents x 5) + (188 Goods x 4) + (28 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 414 Ratings = 4.403

  • 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 Henleigh Hall Care Home is based on 28 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 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 28 Reviews ÷ 12.4 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.

9.4 Henleigh Hall Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.403) from 35 Reviews

I have never had the care I found here anywhere before. The carers are very hard working, always cheerful and laugh with one another. It is lovely to see them working as one team.

All the staff were kind towards the whole family. Mum was in for a week's respite and was known by name by the staff. Grateful she was accepted on a Sunday as hospital needed her bed. Excellent visiting times.

I am always greeted by friendly, helpful staff. Everyone knows me and that is a nice feeling. Mum (98 years old) is happy and safe. She is included in many activities which is fun and her room is in a position which looks out to the main entrance so she sees who is coming and going and across the railway line to the woods - perfect (and everyone has to pass her room to see other residents on Loxley Wing.

My parents had very different needs. Our family was relieved that Henleigh Hall could accommodate them both, though after 67 years of marriage my father has recently passed away. The staff always listened to his demands and carried out his wishes whether plans for gardens or a favourite delicacy - 'dripping and soft bread cakes'.

I want my relatives to be happy, with interesting food, be in cleaned, ironed clothes, to see and interact in activities - and they are. With many varied events happening this is a new life, with nurses carers and management equally available for residents and families. Definitely recommend.

As Mum says, 'Everyone is very kind', and for my siblings and I, this is the most important aspect of life at Henleigh, particularly when we all know that Mum's dementia can sometimes make her very difficult to care for.

I am happy with the care my mother is receiving at Henleight Hall Care Home. I am pleased that there are activities on a daily basis for my mother and other residents. I was disappointed that they did not tell me about the sedatives they were giving to my mother. However I am happy with the sedatives they are now giving when it is needed.

Due to the loving and professional care my Mum received when she moved to Henleigh Hall her physical, mental and emotional health improved dramatically. When my Dad saw how well she was being looked after, he also moved to Henleigh Hall. When my Mum died, the staff were so supportive and caring. They really helped my Dad through some difficult days. Although I don't live locally, all the staff know who I am when I ring up or visit and they are very friendly and helpful.

Everyone at Henleigh Hall who has been involved with my uncle's care has been professional, compassionate and gone the extra mile! Even during some difficult times we have felt supported. The home really is a home from home. The activities/outings etc are varied and it is lovely to see staff encouraging the residents to get out and about. Brilliant work team and thank you!

The food is excellent and they cater very well and seem to be able to ask for something different to the menu. The care overnight is also very good.

I have been a visitor to a dear friend in this home since Henleigh Hall opened.
I liked it then and it is very good now. My friends always settled easily and were happy here.
Highly recommended.
On point for all homes and always needed is a receptionist. The first person you meet, not to just unlock the door but when well experienced will sort out many a problem.

Very professional, friendly, lots going on where staff are supportive and encourage residents to take part. Care carried out kindly and efficiently.

Staff will "go the extra mile" when asked. Rooms need redecorating (and corridors) but kept clean and usually tidy. Occasional issues e.g buzzer not on mum's chair but left on the bed across the room, no towels, have to be addressed. Some communication between different areas and getting messages through can be a problem.
The atmosphere is calm, positive and welcoming and caring nature of the home is evident.

My grandma has lived at Henleigh Hall for just over 2 years and the transition from home to here has been super. Her room is light and cheerful with things of her own to make links to her own house. Staff are kind, patient, caring and friendly. My family and I trust in their care and Grandma is happy and safe. In emergencies they have been excellent; thorough care provided. Thank you, Henleigh Hall and staff. It means so much that she is happy.

From the first time I attended the home to see if it was the right place for my dad, I felt happy and confident after seeing and speaking with staff that it was.
No matter what time I visit the home the staff are committed to the residents and their families and because of this, the health and well-being of the residents are catered for.
This is evident in the massive improvements my dad has made since being there, namely his physical state and mental state.
He is more outgoing than he has been for years.
They do good work and work well as a team.

Mum going into Henleigh Hall has helped her and all our family immensely. People had been advocating her care to be in her home, but we were getting nowhere with this and mum was getting worse.
Henleigh Hall has improved mums life so much by providing company, activities and security as we know she is in safe hands. This has enabled our family to get back peace of mind, especially at night time.

Lindsey Deignan

Job Title: Home Manager

Joined: 1995

Description:

Why did you decide to join brighterkind?

I have worked at Henleigh Hall since we opened in June 1995, as the registered manager since June 1998 and feel that Henleigh belongs very much to my team and me. brighterkind came along at the perfect time for us and it has been so exciting and rewarding to be part of this adventure together.

What one thing do you enjoy most about your job?

The variety, my role changes every day and there is always something new to learn and develop.

What are your interests outside of work?

I have a love of sport - mainly watching, I hasten to add - especially cricket and rugby. I always have a book on the go and read an average of 2 books per week. I love being with my family and friends and enjoy having fun.

Are you a nurse?

I am a registered nurse, I qualified in 1988.

Why did you get into nursing?

Literally because at 16 I was not wholly sure what I wanted to do, one of my best friends had enrolled on the pre-nursing course and I went along- she did not and went to work in an estate agents! In between the course finishing and being 18, I worked in a care home and loved it which ultimately secured my future as a nurse.

Key qualifications and experience:

Registered General Nurse

Registered Managers Award

Variety of teaching certificates including Cert Ed

What was a defining moment for you?

Deciding to leave the NHS after 10 years and choosing to work in the independent sector, I’ve never looked back.

Experience - what is your background?

I did my pre-nursing course in Hull and moved to the Sheffield School of Nursing in May 1985. I worked on the stroke unit at Netheredge Hospital until it closed its doors in 1995 and chose to move to help commission Henleigh.

I am passionate about...

Lots of things, my family and friends and Henleigh Hall and all that entails.

What is your biggest achievement?

This takes a lot of thinking about, possibly maturing and trying to be level-headed and calm in any life situation, personal or at work.

My favourite brighterkind value is from keep it simple, do it from the heart, make every moment matter, sort it and choose to be happy is...

Although I endorse them all, I think choose to be happy, no one wants to see a miserable face, someone that’s grumpy, we need a positive attitude and you can only have that by choosing to be happy.
