Reviews

8.5 Sunrise of Winchester has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.539)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Sunrise of Winchester is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunrise of Winchester in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 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 4.296 for Sunrise of Winchester is calculated as follows: ( (98 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (28 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (5 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.296

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.243 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunrise of Winchester 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 20.6 positive Reviews (103 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 20.6 Target = 0.243

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

The care staff are excellent and engage very well with residents - always upbeat and efficient. Management have listened to residents and relatives regarding the catering standards and in the process of executing improvements (a trifle overdue!!!). Whilst the garden is well used, some colour and seasonal planting of bulbs and hanging baskets would immensely improve the garden and in particular, rear pathways where rooms overlook blank walls.

Sunrise have treated my nan with nothing but dignity and respect and she loves the well thought out activity schedule. She loves the food and even though due to her dietary requirements this has to be blended it's still presented in a beautiful manner and she feels like she is eating the same as her fellow residents.

My father has Parkinsons. We briefed Sunrise and had a lengthy home visit by the care team agreeing to a 30 day trial period prior to becoming a permanent resident. We were told he would have to share a bathroom for a few weeks and were given a scale of costs but nothing concrete. As we arrived, an email came through saying the cost of care had been calculated and was almost double the amount predicted. By this stage, it was too late to turn around. From the start, it was apparent the care team had no knowledge of the discussions with the sales team and no knowledge of everything agreed at the home visit.

At the end of the 30 days, we were called in and asked it we had ordered a taxi for him or if they should.

I think Sunrise is suited to residents wanting a hotel like facility with the reassurance of care on call. It was not suitable for my father who had nursing needs and Parkinson's but still wanted mental stimulation and an element of individual thought and choice.

As soon as I walked through the front door I was greeted with a smile, everyone I have met has been lovely and had the biggest, warmest smiles. It seems everyone here is just as happy as my aunt. Thankfully it has been sunny today so we made the most of the beautiful gardens. Always a pleasure. Thank you, keep up the good work.

Thank you for taking the time to review Sunrise of Winchester. Your feedback is important to us, as is the care and well-being of all of our residents. We run a full activity program with a least 5 activities a day which are tailored to suit individual needs. We would like to understand your concerns further, we would be grateful if you could email more information to us on information@sunriseseniorliving.com or please speak with our Community General Manager so that we can explore your concerns fully. The Sunrise Team

On the whole, care is good. But, when 2 members of staff help me, they are inclined to talk to each other and ignore me. This annoys me. Generally the staff are helpful to my needs, but the off one is less inclined to help, and expects me to struggle. (I am of poor mobility).
Food is "hit & miss", some days are worse than others!! Frequently there are no clean mugs, cups, spoons etc, available in the "bistro", especially when visitors are around. Generally, a comfortable place to stay.

Generally speaking I am happy and satisfied. Obviously some things could be improved. Food could be tastier, menus more varied, vegetables are often poor, deserts too sweet and too stodgy. There should be provision for a suitable diabetic pudding daily.

We found all the staff helpful and professional at all times. They made sure all the clients were looked after. They never minded you asking them questions. The food was always good and as my dad was on a soft diet they tried to make it as appetising as possible.

All the staff at Sunrise have been excellent in looking after my mother. From the time we enquired about vacancies to the time my mother came to Sunrise in early September. The director of community relations has been superb in organising her accommodation and well being during this month a really excellent care home with very caring and well trained staff.

My husband and I came here in December 2013, he had parkinsons disease and died. I have continued living here in the same rooms with our furniture (some of which he made himself.) The staff are all pleasant and polite. The food is good. There is a good programme of events and entertainment.
