  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Seagrave House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 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 4.596 for Seagrave House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (119 Excellents x 5) + (46 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 178 Ratings = 4.596

  • 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 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Seagrave House Care Home is based on 7 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 16.8 positive Reviews (84 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 16.8 Target = 0.417

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

9 Seagrave House Care Home has a Review Score of 9 (9.013) from 15 Reviews

My Father receives excellent care and support and everyone I have dealt with has been extremely helpful. Communications with the staff is always quick and detailed. I am pleased that my Father is happy and safe and I would not hesitate to recommend Seagrave House.

Overall the home, the staff and the care is excellent. The patience displayed by the staff is noteworthy and the facilities are first class. Of minor concern is there is often an odour, automatic air fresheners could help. Also, there is little control over residents walking into other peoples rooms uninvited. Nevertheless, I am extremely happy with the service and care offered by Seagrave House Care Home. As far as the organisation as a whole is concerned I believe the price increase/annum should be kept to the rate of inflation paying residents should not subsidise council residents and additional charges kept to a minimum.

I felt very welcome when visiting a relative at Seagrove and noticed all staff had smiles on their faces and were very approachable. My relative is delighted with his room and the care, food and facilities provided.

The service received has been excellent, from the point of asking to look around and timescales in respect of my father being assessed and accommodated. During his first week, he was unwell and the care received by night staff was second to none in my father's words.
I have not met anyone who is not fantastic. Dad is very special and I have every confidence he is happy and very well cared for.

Having been through a difficult time finding out dad needed constant care, we were lucky in finding Seagrave. The facilities are good, but all the staff are fantastic. Myself and my sister are happy to know dad is in safe hands.

Overall the staff and management at Seagrave provide a friendly, comfortable and safe environment.
The staff are approachable and treat my wife with dignity and respect, she feels more like a family member than a resident.
Having a management team that is not only visible, but always available to listen to and discuss any concerns that may arise is a welcome bonus, an asset to the day to day running of Seagrave.

We visit our friend on a regular basis, and always find the staff very friendly and welcoming, the home is very tastefully decorated, the housekeeping is kept to a very high standard, and we are extremely pleased with the level of care our friend receives. There are always activities going on to keep the residents occupied, which is lovely for them, they are so well looked after, it is always a pleasure to visit Seagrave House.

Mum has been in Ii for three years now and the family could not be happier for mum as the staff are wonderful and caring. Don't think she could be happier anywhere else. There is always a lovely friendly atmosphere in the home when you go in. Very welcoming. It seems to be kept at a high standard of cleanliness and the decor is lovely. Also with the coffee, tea etc in the reception area is very nice and a thoughtful extra, also the cakes !!

My mother has been a resident of Seagrave since July 2007. She has advanced dementia and associated conditions. She has had wonderful care in the later stages of her condition and despite constant visits to KGH always seems most at ease when back at Seagrave. Both myself and my father (at 91) are always made welcome and nothing is to much trouble for the staff and they go out of their way to make him feel part of the home on his frequent visits.

Lovely clean home, staff mostly friendly and courteous. The staff seem to be short on the ground sometimes. On my last visit a resident said she had been waiting for a cup of tea for along time, after saying she felt sick. It's quite expensive to stay but seems to be lacking in certain aspects. Realising it must be difficult to please all people at all times.

My mother had lived at Seagrave House for over 4 years. She is treated like family by all the staff. Her needs have been continually reviewed during this time and modified as her condition has changed. The staff and management are very approachable and responsive to requests, the managers have an open door policy allowing our family to raise any issues that concerns us. This has led to speedy reaction to changing needs. We as a family are always welcome, we feel part of mums extended family in the home. Being a purpose built building the facilities are very good.
