Signature Coombe Hill Manor is a newly built home, situated in the beautiful surroundings of Kingston upon Thames.

Headed up by a very experienced general manager, the team at Coombe Hill Manor offer a very warm welcome to all. Coombe Hill Manor is a care home like no other in the area.

The home is purpose built and offers exceptional accommodation, which is affordable and 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. It is unique in that the home offers double the space of most care homes and it is ideal for those wanting extra room or for couples who want to stay together.

Coombe Hill also has smaller studios for those who prefer something more cosy. The rooms come unfurnished allowing residents to bring those special objects, which helps the settling in process.

Coombe Hill Manor is proud to offer two fully licensed restaurants, the menu being dictated by current residents and an in-house cafe for residents and visitors to enjoy afternoon tea and homemade cakes. There is also a large activities team which provide trips out, visiting speakers, performers and activities. There is also an in-house hair salon, spa and treatment room.

Residents range from those who are relatively independent and still drive through to those who require full nursing, dementia or end of life care. Coombe Hill provides discreet support in a place which is not institutional and as much like home as possible.

Dignity, encouraging independence, involving family and friends, are part of the fabric of Coombe Hill and the staff hope that these values are echoed in the recommendations received both from families and professionals alike.

Reviews

9.6 Signature Coombe Hill Manor has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.596)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Signature Coombe Hill Manor is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Signature Coombe Hill Manor in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 15 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 4.875 for Signature Coombe Hill Manor is calculated as follows: ( (232 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 263 Ratings = 4.875

  • 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 4.721 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Signature Coombe Hill Manor is based on 15 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 20.8 positive Reviews (104 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 15 Reviews ÷ 20.8 Target = 0.721

  • 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 has been extremely happy at Coombe Hill Manor since she moved in in May.
She constantly tells me that the staff are lovely, the place is kept immaculately clean, the gardens are beautiful and she enjoys the entertainment.

My Mum being there has taken a great weight and worry off my mind.

Thank you so much for your kind review. It always means so much to the staff to read comments like yours.

My aunt has been a Coombe Hill resident for 3 years.

Although she always needs something to grumble about, she is very content with the knowledge there is always help at hand should she need it. She highly praises the carers and is constantly telling me how wonderful they are.

My aunt has lots of contact with other residents and looks forward to joining in the varied activities.

Colleen Davidson, Client Liaison Manager at Signature Coombe Hill Manor responded to this review on 27 Jul 2017:

Thank you for taking the time to submit this lovely review of Coombe Hill Manor, it is much appreciated.

Management are accessible and responsive, and care staff are plentiful. Smiles mark everyone from reception to maintenance; engagement with residents is genuine and respectful. The friendly atmosphere is pervasive and remarkable.

Surroundings are bright, welcoming and spacious, with a number of additional inviting areas for residents to use; there are options of privacy as well as community. The facilities, including the spa baths, are a surprising treat. CHM feels more like a light and airy lovely hotel than a residential home. Soundproofing on the extremely pleasant individual units is excellent.

My own elderly father, who lives far away, is so impressed by what he has heard of CHM’s delights, that he wishes he could live there also and even considered relocating…. he and I only wish it were feasible!

It's a big change moving into care. I must say that Coombe Hill Manor has helped the transition in a sensitive, helpful and (I think) successful way. My mother seems content, enjoying many of the facilities and the care. On my visits, I have been impressed by the friendliness and positive atmosphere.

My mother stayed at Coombe Hill Manor for two and a half years.
The staff were wonderful - nothing was ever too much trouble and they worked hard to give my mum a quality of life.
Everything else was great too, the facilities, the food, the activities and general approachability of staff.

The entertainment teams are fab and really good fun. Staff take the time to get to know residents families. Food is excellent and residents are listened to via various forums and changes are made accordingly.

Very friendly from beginning to end and extremely kind, caring staff who always appear eager and helpful whilst smiling and happy. The activities are good. The staff very understanding, professional and lively. The home is very clean with a wonderful atmosphere. I cannot recommend it enough - truly excellent.

We are delighted with the loving care that our mother received in her final year of life. At all times staff were caring, respectful, interested in getting the most out of our mother by stimulating her in every way and generally making her life very happy. They were particularly interested in her Spanish cultural background and made a point of linking things in her past with current activities (through music, faith etc).

We had not anticipated such intense care and attention to detail as they demonstrated. They also showed great patience and care when things became very difficult after a hospital stay. Their care really did go above and beyond the normal level that you would expect, and for that, we are so very grateful.

My mother has been a resident in the dementia unit for 2 and a half years, having previously been in another nearby home of very similar cost. The difference, particularly in the attitude of staff and standard of care, has been extremely impressive. The home is purpose built to a high standard with great facilities and excellent food and accommodation.
The standard of care is outstanding, with a high staff to resident ratio and I cannot fault the caring approach and attitude. The staff are also very good at communicating with families, keeping in touch by phone or email, whenever appropriate.

My mother moved into Coombe Hill Manor's Augusta suite following the death of her husband, my father. The whole process from initial visit, to moving day and settling in period was handled with complete professionalism and compassion by the management and staff. My sister and I visited several alternative providers before we decided and Coombe Hill Manor was easily the first choice. This was borne out over the two and a half years that my mother was a resident. The care she received was first class. The staff were caring to mum and welcoming to her family. The facilities are first rate. The catering is of excellent quality and variety. But really this place is about the staff who are excellent and really care about their residents. That is the most important consideration for family members placing their relatives into care and makes recommending Coombe Hill Manor very easy to do. Thank you to everyone for all that you did for mum.

I helped a lady to move in and was very happy to see staff giving her such a warm welcome to her new home - after all the worrying, it couldn't have gone any smoother. From the housekeeper to the handyman, everyone was available to assist with settling in - so she felt at home from the moment she arrived. She can't meet up with me for several days now because of the wonderful activities she has signed up to!

Coombe Hill Manor is a different kind of care home. As soon as you walk through the gliding front doors to be greeted by smiling and courteous staff at the front desk, you are aware that this is a home from home for residents as opposed to a care home. Both residents and staff are relaxed and cheerful. The ambience is that of a well run high grade hotel. The decor of apartments is calming and modern, while the communal areas and corridors are colour coded and welcoming. The facilities, including a fantastic art room are second to none and the food served in the two restaurants is delicious.

I am in no doubt that my mother is receiving the best possible attention and care by excellent staff who are always keen to help in an above average care home setting.

From an initial inquiry some months ago I found CHM extremely helpful, informative, caring and sensitive. No pressure to decide, just sound advice and guidance. My mother arrived for rest and recuperation and is so happy has decided to stay. The level of care from all staff is wonderful and cannot be faulted.

My mother is very very happy at Coombe. She has made a whole new circle of friends and has many new interests since she moved there more than a year ago. She loves the staff and I am so pleased to know she is safe and well looked after. Following a recent hospital procedure my mother could not have expected more concern and care whilst she was recovering. A great place to live she says.

I have been working as an Activities Manager for almost 9 years and it never ceases to amaze me how much I am humbled each day. Working in activities produces some of the best memories for me.

Coombe Hill Manor is a place where you are encouraged to be yourself and to express yourself, whether it is dancing the Charleston, joining in with the Garden Club or just kick back and read a good book, if you want to do it, you can do it!

As an artist I’m thrilled that we have such fantastic Art Studio and Gallery, I look forward to finding our residents hidden talents and showing off their work!

Description:

I have been in hospitality for several years, originally involved in the planning and organisation of events. Also, I used to run my own beach resort in Sharm El Sheik, Egypt, for 8 years.
Signature was my ingress to the care industry, and I couldn’t have chosen a better company.
I find my role extremely rewarding and I’m very proud to be part of the team who started the Coombe Hill Manor unit. It really makes me feel like I’m part of a family.
I’m well aware of my responsibilities, as catering to seniors and their special diet requirements can be challenging. But I’m really glad Signature places me in an environment where I can easily and very efficiently do so.

My name is Michele, I have worked in the domestic industry for many years. I am originally from Edinburgh. I wanted to work once my sons had reached school age and the obvious job for myself at that time was cleaning, which I do enjoy. I worked for the harvester for 3 years cleaning, working in the kitchen, which I enjoyed. I left to work in a 4 star hotel in Brooklands as a room attendant which was hard work. I was made up to supervisor which led to me being stand in for the Housekeeping manager on a regular basis. I wanted a change as I enjoy making some one’s life a bit more comfortable. My mother worked in a care home for many years and as a child I would always go to work with her to help. I applied to a care home and was lucky enough to get a job with a great team of people, managers, team mates and the GM. I worked for the company for near 3 years. I was lucky to get the opportunity to apply for a job with Signature as housekeeping manager, which I love. In all my jobs Coombe is definitely not just a job it is a pleasure to come to work. I am working with a great team and have fantastic residents to look after.
