Reviews

9.7 Ocean Breeze Residential Care Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.736)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Ocean Breeze Residential Care Home 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 31 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ocean Breeze Residential Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 20 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 4.736 for Ocean Breeze Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (292 Excellents x 5) + (54 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 364 Ratings = 4.736

  • 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 Ocean Breeze Residential Care Home is based on 20 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 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 4.8 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.

Generally, this home is excellent including the on-site management. However, the head office management is questionable. Recent notification of imminent fee increase and profile bed rental charges totalling 7% per annum will impact on ability to continue residence. Try to negotiate a 'Fee Capped' contract.

Apart from this recent unsettling fee increase development, the staff are wonderful and Mum is extremely well cared for.

Mary McGowan, Director at Ocean Breeze Residential Care Home responded to this review on 19 Sep 2017:

The fee increase of 5% was taken to ensure the financial viability of the care home and was not taken lightly by the Board of Directors. Copies of our audited accounts have been sent to many of our residents families and these accounts reflect what has been said. We wish to continue to provide the same high level of quality of care with the support of our professional and highly trained staff.

Mum came to Ocean Breeze from a long stay in hopsital and I've been amazed at how well she has been built up from a frail condition by super dedicated staff concentrating on her every need.
Every day the time if filled up with lovely activities that everyone enjoys, mum has taken part in things she has never done before. I come away knowing that mum is happy and in safe hands.

My mother was previously in another local home where she did not leave her room on any occasion. I felt that this was not good for her at all and so after one month we moved her to the Ocean Breeze Residential Care Home. What a difference the staff at Ocean Breeze have made, my mother now looks forward to joining in the homes many activities and is visibly so much happier. I cannot praise the staff enough for their genuine care, nothing is a problem to them and they always have a smile on their faces no matter what they are facing. My mother is 96 years old and we now expect her to be around for a long time yet thanks to the brilliant care that she enjoys at this home.

I would highly recommend Ocean Breeze to anyone looking for a safe, caring and happy 'family' home environment for their loved ones to live. Residents are treated with respect from caring staff who encourage, listen and engage with them through all manner of daily activities and tasks. Nothing is too much trouble. Family and friends are invited to join in the fun at any time. Their view is "life is for living" and that is exactly what happens here.

My mother moved here from another care home and I have found that Ocean Breeze looks after her better. They ensure that she joins in activities and is not left in her room on her own, as was the case in the previous home.
Food is good and staff very friendly.

My dear Mum is a resident of this lovely establishment. She is in need of one on one care and after 18 homes had turned my Mum down Ocean Breeze did what was necessary to provide the care needed by employing extra help. The staff are very friendly and professional. The home itself is clean and has a bight happy feel to it. They spend time doing lots of activities each day. The food is of a high standard too. The manager and deputy manager are the best, extremely knowledgeable and very professional.

I was very impressed by the cleanliness, care and compassion that I witnessed. I work at a social service agency in Canada and have high expectation of standards, so I believe I scrutinized more than the average individual.
I was also impressed by the constant activities that were taking place to engage the residents.
The staff work hard at making it a great place to live for those that can't live independently anymore.

Ocean Breeze is a beautiful place to be. All of the staff are amazing, dedicated and so kind and caring to the residents, nothing is too much trouble. I am so relieved that my parents are here, they are comfortable, well fed and safe at last - as good as it gets away from their own home. I would recommend this care home to anyone without reservation.

What a lovely day the residents were having when l popped in. Some were in the garden enjoying the sun all under gazebos with beautiful sun hats on and cool drinks, while others were having a sing song in the lounge. All songs were ones that most residents would know and they were all joining in. They have just had a very successful garden fete with lots of family and friends attending, a huge raffle and lots of prizes and as usual, everyone made to feel very welcome. I was unable to stay late on the day l called but l wish l had, as l saw the most amazing strawberry cake, all home made ready for tea. This home is spotless and caters for the residents every need and all visitors are made to feel so welcome, l love going there, it's always smiley faces. Well done all staff, you should be very proud of yourselves.

I have visited my friend several times during her first week in Ocean Breeze. The staff have been kind, welcoming and friendly. They treat the residents with respect and give individual attention to them. There is a homely feel and residents are encouraged to join in with discussion/conversation.
There is always a member of staff in the lounge which gives a much more caring feel. My friend is being well looked after and care is taken to make her feel good - i.e. she has had her nails painted.

I cannot speak highly enough of the care that was given to my mum who recently passed away. From the moment she was seen at home, 9 months ago, by a senior member of staff, who immediately helped to facilitate her move to Ocean Breeze, my mum was treated with nothing but respect, dignity and loving care. The facilities at Ocean Breeze are second to none, it is spotlessly clean and the food is lovely. There is always things going on for the residents and nothing is ever too much trouble. Every member of staff is friendly, caring and always has a smile. Words cannot express how grateful we have been as a family for the support we have received over the last few weeks and I have no hesitation in recommending Ocean Breeze to anyone. It is a true home in every sense of the word.

Since my father was admitted a year ago to Ocean Breeze Care Home, my family and I are aware of the great care and support they have given him. Every aspect from the cleanliness of each room to the lovely variety of food provided is excellent. The support for Dad's well-being and tact and respect in his personal care has been faultless. Any concerns or queries that we have made have always been responded to in an appropriate and satisfactory manner.

Every member of the team interacts with each resident with respect and humour when called for and reassurance when needed. We feel secure in the knowledge that however the journey of Dad's illness proceeds, we know that every step of the way he is helped, respected and protected. This is the manager and the amazing team that makes Ocean Breeze so special, for Dad, for me and for all our family; and for other families who have entrusted their loved ones into the care of Ocean Breeze Care home. It has given us peace of mind and security knowing that we have chosen the best environment for our loved one.

I feel the need to write this second review for Ocean Breeze care home as still being a fabulous care home, my mother has lived there for nearly two years and they all still maintain all her necessities to the highest standard. There is a new manager, and over the past year she keeps up with all the needs of all the residents for their day to day life in a caring and very professional manner. The home is spotlessly clean, the meals are still paramount to all their nutritional needs. The activity's and entertainment are always planned out for the week and are good fun. I look forward every time to visiting my mother and all the team - In all I can't praise this care home enough.

Ocean Breeze is an excellent run home with a first class team of staff in operation. The bedrooms are delightful and modern as is the whole home. The general facilities, cleanliness of the home, food and activities are all excellent and presented by wonderfully caring, patient and kind staff. From the Home manager down there is safety, security, support and all residents are treated with dignity and fairness. The overall standard in everything is first class and there is always an ear who will listen should you wish for assistance albeit for you, your family member or anything else within the home for that matter. Moreover, they try hard, they work hard and they care in every way they can. Very highly recommended today just as it was when I placed my mother there some twenty months ago.

The manager of the care home was very helpful admitting my mother at short notice. The home has accommodated her very well considering she is over 100 and bedridden.
All the staff are very caring in their approach to the patients. The home is above all immaculate and clean and I would recommend the home to all patients whether they have dementia or are fully bedridden.

My husband was admitted three weeks ago as emergency respite care. I had become exhausted, my husband last stage Alzheimer's disease (8 years). Home selected on personal recommendation of a friend. Visited on Wednesday with son and husband. Lovely area, nice house. Kind, kind staff with great knowledge of the disease. House beautifully appointed, appropriate to dementia. Husband admitted Monday for respite, long term.

This is the third time my wife has been into Ocean Breeze and we have been very pleased with the care and service received. The home is comfortable and well kept, the rooms are pleasant, clean and well appointed. The staff are first class in every way, particularly the head nurse, who mainly looked after my wife and they have become good friends. The food and activities are acceptable for the residents in the home. As required we shall use Ocean Breeze again, and if asked will passed on our recommendations of this home.

The manager a senior nursing staff has been excellent in arranging emergency respite care. Having assessed the situation my mother was accepted and settled into Ocean Breeze within a few hours. Since being at Ocean Breeze initially as respite care I fully expect my mother will not return home and will have to stay in a care home for much longer. The way that she and other members of our family have been treated means that Ocean Breeze will be our number one choice.

My Aunt became a resident in March 2016 and is already showing an improvement since being at Ocean Breeze.

After visiting several care homes in the area Ocean Breeze stood out with its caring family atmosphere with genuine compassion and lots of humour.

The staff make every effort to work around my Aunt's needs rather than making her fit into their routine.

I would not hesitate in recommending Ocean Breeze.

The Management who reside in Nottingham, haven't got a clue of running a care home. All residents have just received a letter informing of a 20%+ increase in fees.
We are in an impossible situation. Also the new contact (which we are not signing) has a £500 dilapidation charge when leaving - is this normal.
Think very carefully before putting a person into this home.
Staff who look after the residents are excellent.

Mary McGowan, ceo at Ocean Breeze Residential Care Home responded to this review on 18 May 2016:

Ocean Breeze Care Home has been open for fourteen months. During that time we have maintained the rates and offered our residents the highest standard of care. Over that period there has been a deterioration in the health of our residents and we have ensured that their increasing care needs have been met. Following changes in Government legislation in relation to employment and increasing staff wages, we have had no option but to increase our weekly rates. It is not a decision we have taken lightly. We have also undertaken a review of other local care homes whose prices are higher. In order to continue to provide the same high level of care for our residents and a safe and secure home from home environment, we have had to review our rates. We feel that Ocean Breeze offers the best care provided by highly trained and caring staff and a homely and happy environment.

Very acceptable, friendly staff and comfortable.
