Signature Bentley House, Hertford, Hertfordshire

Bentley House is one of the newest developments from Signature Senior Lifestyle that opened in January 2015. The team at Bentley House offers a warm welcome to all and is a care home like no other in the area. The Home is purpose built and offers exceptional accommodation, which is affordable but of a very high standard. A typical one bedroom suite offers a bedroom and separate lounge and kitchen with a full en-suite wet room and is unique as it offers double the space of most care homes and is ideal for those wanting extra room or couples who want to stay together. They also have smaller studios for those who prefer something more cosy. Their rooms come unfurnished allowing residents to bring those special pieces of their home with them, something they find helps the settling in process significantly.

Life at Bentley House is all about making it feel like home. They have not one but two outstanding restaurants, the menu being dictated by current residents. They have a cinema which is in constant use and quite often by visiting grandchildren. They have a large activities team who provide trips out, visiting speakers, one to ones and activities which are again chosen by the resident committee.

Although Bentley House has outstanding facilities, the Home is all about the care it provides. Residents range from those who are relatively independent and still drive, to those who require respite, full nursing, dementia or end of life care and they pride themselves on providing discreet support in a place which is not institutional but as much like home as they can make it. Professionals believe it is how they care that sets them apart from other homes, Dignity, Encouraging Independence, Involving Family and Friends, are part of the fabric of the home and they hope that these values are echoed in the recommendations received.

Reviews

9.5 Signature Bentley House has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.454)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Signature Bentley 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 21 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Signature Bentley House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 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 4.676 for Signature Bentley House is calculated as follows: ( (170 Excellents x 5) + (74 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 247 Ratings = 4.676

  • 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 4.778 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Signature Bentley 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 18 positive Reviews (90 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 18 Target = 0.778

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

My Mum enjoys living at Bentley House and is very well looked after.
She makes full use of the facilities, for example, having her hair done once a week.
We as a family feel very reassured that there is 24-hour nursing care available.
The care staff are all very attentive, caring and friendly.
Mum's room is very inviting and is kept very clean and the housekeeping team do an excellent job.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Bentley House to others.

My father moved into Bentley House in March 2016. He has been exceptionally well cared for by a caring and friendly team. The home staff have treated him as an individual recognising his likes and he has nothing but praise for the home. He chooses not to participate in most activities, enjoying his own lounge area, TV, DVD player etc but the home has involved him in activities which appeal to him within an extensive and well-supported programme. Food is very varied and although my father finds it a little bland he recognises this is more to others tastes. Interviewed by the home for an advert he said 'fallen on my feet' regarding the home which is an excellent endorsement of the care I have seen evidence of.

I made an initial appointment to visit the home, knowing that my husband needed nursing care and from then on nothing has been too much trouble. I feel that my husband is treated with care, compassion and dignity and I also receive support from the staff.
The fees are very steep but one of my children worked it out on an hourly role for 24-hour care, and that makes it look totally reasonable knowing the level of care my husband needs.

I am delighted with the outstanding care my father has received at Bentley House. From the minute I made my enquiry to today, everything has been handled professionally, by staff who are caring and compassionate. I have seen several other homes and in my opinion, none are comparable to Bentley House in terms of the care, environment and lively atmosphere. Would not hesitate in recommending this home.

I have been resident in Signature Bentley House for 15 days for respite. Although at 91, I am physically weak, I am quite bright mentally. I am not in a position to compare with other homes.

I have been very favourably impressed by the high standard of every aspect of Signature Bentley House. It is beautifully finished and furnished house and all aspects of the relationships between myself and staff both domestic care and administrative has been impeccable. Food varied for excellent to mediocre and I believe that was due to problems with temporary staff. I did not find much interest in the activities programme.

A short break to recharge my batteries. I was shown care and consideration from all levels.
Furnishings and decor are 100%.
Catering - the food was enjoyable, plentiful and varied.
Entertainment for those who wished for it, morning and evening, sometimes afternoons too, our own cinema.
Interesting 'outings' if you so wished. Never a dull moment.
After a happy break, I have decided to move in permanently when the time comes and it will not be long.... I'm 95 at present!

I received a very warm welcome when I arrived at Bentley House straight from hospital. I needed complete rest and care after an operation and that is what I received. All the staff were very caring and friendly - always checking to see if you were OK and did you need anything. The home was clean, bright and very tastefully furnished. The food was varied, many choices, beautifully cooked and presented. There were many activities if you wanted to join in or comfortable places to sit and read and have a cup of tea of coffee. If I ever need respite care again I would not hesitate to book a room again at Bentley House and I would also recommend it to my friends and family.

As soon as I walked through the door, I knew this would be the place for my mother to live! In the past, I myself have worked in day centre's and nursing homes. I have seen other places and none can compare with the care and activities here at Bentley House, along with the décor, room, welcome and great food. Nanny's new pad is awesome say the great grandchildren!

I was quite happy during my two weeks respite stay. I felt supported but I had a medical issue and a nurse told me I would have to see my own GP rather than the visiting doctor. I wasn't happy with this as I wanted to be seen. This was mentioned to the nurse manager when I was collected. It seems that perhaps there was miscommunication. We were assured it wouldn't recur.

Natalie, clm at Signature Bentley House responded to this review on 09 Nov 2016:

We are very sorry Elspeth that you were not seen by the home’s GP. The home’s GP did actually visit and attempt to see you, but unfortunately, you were on one of our trips out. The home’s GP stated, after hearing the concerns from our Registered Nurse, that as you were finishing your stay on the Monday, it was okay to see your own GP and you wouldn’t need to see a GP before then, as the nurses within the home would be able to assist with the situation. We apologise as it appears that this wasn’t fully communicated to you.
Thank you for your positive feedback and comments and we look forward to seeing you again.

I had a wonderful time and enjoyed it so much. Everybody was so helpful and nothing was too much bother. It was an extremely comfortable room and the room service was great.

My stay at Bentley House has been highly beneficial. I have had two weeks to convalesce following major surgery, and now feel ready to go home.. well almost! my only complaint is that on three occasions I was woken by night staff asking if I was alright! Otherwise, all staff have showed consideration and kindness, always willing to help. They are obviously happy in their work and have received excellent training.

My mother moved in when Bentley house opened. A year later, my mum says that she is very happy here, the staff are all lovely and very attentive. My mum enjoys the arranged trips and activities and looks very healthy due to the care and company. My comments are that there has been quite a lot of staff change and I've felt the need to update some of them regards my mums needs ie. trying top find a solution to her not losing her money. Overall my mum is happy and we enjoy visiting and chatting with the other residents and staff.
