Reviews

9.9 Hopton Cottage Care Home has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.859)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Hopton Cottage Care Home 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 35 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hopton Cottage Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.859 for Hopton Cottage Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (361 Excellents x 5) + (57 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 419 Ratings = 4.859

  • 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 Hopton Cottage Care Home is based on 16 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 12 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.

As a volunteer, I am enjoying this work I call bingo. The residents all seem to enjoy it.
In time I hope to do more for the residents and staff.

My 80year old mum has been a permanent resident November 2016 following 6months of intermittent respite care.
Mum suffers from Dementia but as yet does not need the intense care of the onsite Dementia unite and therefore lives in the care side.

The home is like a 5-star hotel. Spacious, contemporary furnished rooms with ensuite wet/shower room. Small private terrace looking onto the well cared for gardens. I have never had a minutes regret regarding mums care, everyone is kind, courtious, friendly and caring.
Good, well-prepared food (plenty of choice) and a wide range of activities.
As a relative, I also feel very well informed and included in all choices regarding mums care.

The care at Hopton Cottage Care Home is second to none. Help is on hand almost immediately anytime night or day. The managers could not be any better. Nothing is too much trouble to anyone.

We have a wide and varied range of activities. I do something different every day. There is always so much to do. I love living here. It has been a new lease of life for me. I'm only 83!

Aw thank you Nelly. We love you.

It is a great relief to know that my dad is being looked after in a caring and loving way. He wants for nothing. The staff are always on hand, very friendly and excellent in every way. I can recommend the care home to everybody.

Hopton Cottage Care Home gave us assurance that the level of support, care and love would be given to our relative during his stay with them. Our uncle was admitted as an 'end of life' resident which made no difference to the management in investing equipment and staff hours to ensure dignity and comfort was given around the clock. This also extended to the immediate family. We will forever be indebted to their kindness. Thank you.

Hopton Care Cottages provided respite care for my father - at a crisis point - the kindness we, as a family, encountered from all the staff and the care and kindness extended to Dad during his stay was excellent.
I have no reservations about recommending the care home nor in taking Dad back for additional periods of care.

My mother has lived at Hopton for 7 months and is quite settled here. She gets on well with the staff.
She has a lovely en-suite room and has been allowed several pictures to decorate her room which the handyman has erected for her.
There are a lot of activities available for my mother to join in.
I am always made very welcome when I visit.
It is a weight off my mind to know she is happy and well cared for.

Thank you for your review Frances. Great to have you around and involved. Looking forward to the local reminiscence group. Best wishes, Joe

Excellent home, very comfortable, residents have plenty of entertainment and want for nothing. Food is first class with a good choice that fit all needs. Staff are well trained polite and seem to really care about their residents. As family members, we are always made to feel welcome and any questions/queries are answered and nothing seems to be a problem for them, this is a true home from home.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments. You're a fantastic family to have around the place!

A lovely care home with well trained, helpful and pro-active staff. A lot of thought is given to the home's design and its aspiration to be a place where people live (rather than going to be looked after) is reflected in the way the residents are cared for. They are respected by the team, their various and differing needs are allowed for and met.
My mum enjoyed her time here and as a family, we felt she was cared for in every way.

It is a very hard decision to put your mum into a care home but choosing Hopton Cottage Care Home was perfect for mum and us. The home is beautifully clean through out with lovely rooms and bright spacious lounges and dining areas.
The laundry service is very well run too. The food is excellent and there are various activities for residents to take part in if they wish. It was lovely to see mum having a social life again (at age 91) and especially when singers came in, mum would be singing along happily.

The care given by the wonderful staff is amazing. Mum received so much love and affection which was very reassuring for us and so heartwarming to see. Visiting mum there was a real pleasure and the warmth of the staff made us feel so welcome, it was like having an extended family.

Mum spent the last 16 months of her life there and was treated with respect and dignity and much loved to the end.

Many thanks to everyone at Hopton Cottage Care Home for looking after mum.

Absolutely fantastic!

Recently my Great Aunt (82) who lives alone had a knee replacement. Before the operation, it was apparent that she would need care before returning home. We contacted the manager who runs the care home, he was so accommodating, managing to get my Great Aunt a room for as long as she needed it. Giving her much needed peace of mind.

Following the operation, she moved in and stayed for 3 weeks (a week longer than planned as she liked it so much)!
She was really happy with the care she received from all the staff. The manager and all his team went out of their way to make her stay a really happy one. Nothing was too much trouble.
The food was superb, the entertainment great and she made new friends.
The level of care was outstanding.
The rooms are really nice, lovely furnishings, ensuite facilities and patio areas.
They coordinated everything, even settling her back into her own home.
As a relative visiting, I was made to feel like it was my home too. A lovely environment that she'll miss.

The staff of Hopton Cottage Care Home made my late grandma's time here an extremely happy one. As a family, we are very grateful for the fine work that all the staff did for my grandmother. The comfort, the love, the help, the dignity, the peace that they gave my grandmother and the other that they still give to other residents to this day is truly admirable and beyond a doubt worthy of high recognition. These staff set the high standard that should happen in all care homes. Thank you, Hopton Cottage Care Home. Thank you big bear hugs.

My mother came to the care home aged 101, having lived her life in London area, unable any longer to look after herself she was moved closer to her family and lived out the rest of her life in what can only be described as a five-star care facility. Nothing is too much trouble for the cheerful and caring staff and she rapidly made new friends.
Sadly she passed away but was cared for right to the end.

My mother suffered from dementia and I could no longer manage at home. At Hopton Cottage, we found her a place where the environment was adapted to her needs and the staff always sensitive to them. She spent her last 3 and a half years there in happiness and security. The atmosphere is one of hope and optimism. Surroundings are pristine, meals are excellent and the emphasis is on individually tailored care. As my mother declined, the management were sensitive and supportive. It was always a pleasure to visit and to know that Mum was in such safe and caring hands.

When I realised that it was time for my elderly mother to go in a care home I was upset and anxious as there is lots of unfavourable reports in the media about care homes. When I saw Hopton Care Cottages I was so thankful that she was going to live there. It was alike a five star hotel. My mother only lived there eight weeks but I am so glad she spent her last eight weeks in luxury and waited on the way she was. I miss visiting the home myself as it was so welcoming and pleasant.

When my Dad passed away and Mum couldn't support herself on her own we realised a care home was the only option. We didn't like the thought of it but on arrival at Hopton Care Cottages, we quickly changed our mind. The place wasn't like a care home. It was a home from home experience. Staff were fantastic in all aspects. They loved Mum from the start. Mum loved the home and was happy. Her room was brilliant and she was able to add her own furniture to her room to make it special. Thank you to all the team at Hopton Care Cottages, you made Mum's last few years wonderful.

I would certainly recommend Hopton Care Cottages to others looking for a care facility. Although my father was only resident for a very short time we found that the staff were very helpful, caring and supportive and made a great deal of effort to meet my father's needs. We certainly valued the home visit prior to going into Hopton and it was obvious that it was important for them to find out as much as possible about my father so that he could be cared for, treated and respected as an individual with a long life history. It was noticeable that all the residents appeared to be happy at Hopton, mealtimes were sociable and many of them took part in activities. The accommodation and individual rooms are of a high standard and there is a relaxed, friendly and welcoming atmosphere.

I am so pleased I was able to get my mum into Hopton Cottage care home. She was not really coping at home and living away I was always worried about her. She's had a second wind since she's moved there. She's gained weight and has really settled well. The home puts pictures on Facebook which is a lovely idea. Yesterday she was out gardening again-something she hasn't done for years. The home is all focused on the residents enjoying life. It's a fantastic place. The manager lives and breathes it and it shows in the whole ethos and approach of the staff team. We all look forward to visiting and to see what mum's been up to. She has more independence now than when she was at home alone. First class place.

This is my second review of Hopton Care Cottages, my first was in September 2014 a few months after mum had moved there. Choosing a care home for a loved one isn't an easy task and I hope that my comments will reassure anyone considering Hopton Care Cottages.

Mum was very content and happy living at Hopton, she loved the meals especially the puddings. She was included in activities, she could stay up late if she wanted to and she received excellent personal care. Since my last review, I would say that the selection of activities provided has shown the greatest improvement, all other aspects of the home have kept to the same high standard.
My sister and I are especially grateful for the respect and dignity shown to mum at the end of her life and the support given to us.

Unknown to us on choosing your lovely care cottages, this wasn't going to be how we ever imagined. It was however, perfect and just what we needed for us and our dad in his final few weeks. His dying days and hours though difficult were made bearable by the kindness of the staff and comfort of surroundings, never forgetting the "Night Angel" xx

This is an excellently run facility and beats comparison with any other in the area. Rooms are what you would find in a 4 star hotel. Staff are compassionate and friendly. Although it is not the cheapest it offers very good value for money. The management have years of experience working in this sector and it shows through on a daily basis. Thoroughly recommended. I have already booked my place when the time comes.

The care that the Hopton team gave my stepson in his final days of life was exceptional. The manager pulled out all the stops to allow this 54 year old man to return home from hospital to die with dignity. A hospital bed was swiftly arranged, as was nursing support from district nurses. It was the hardest thing to contemplate how best to deliver the last 7 days care to someone with multiple needs and challenging behaviour. Yet the staff treated him as someone who deserved respect and was only ever given the closest attention and pleasure. He loved living there amongst faces he came to view as friends. After a life changing brain injury, he learned to trust and value the staff around him and he felt safe for the first time in several years. His small family have been overwhelmed with the vigilance, attention to detail and championing of one's man's case. I can highly recommend the individualised care within the dementia part of the home, as well as the quality of the communications and range of activities within the whole Team. They eased the pain of bereavement simply be being there when it counted and demonstrating excellent technical and people skills. Grateful thanks to them all.

My mother, with a mild to moderate dementia, has been in Hopton Cottage Care Home for just over 18 months. She had not been coping at home and had lost a significant amount of weight. We were delighted when she settled easily and happily into her new home, and after enjoying the excellent selection and quality of food or some months she regained a healthy amount of weight, which has been maintained.

The staff are really lovely with her, witness her contentment and relaxed attitude amidst them. Her level of anxiety is now almost nil, because she knows that although she may not 'know what she is doing half of the time', there is always someone there to reassure her and keep her on track.

I am many miles away in Scotland, so when I do visit I tend to spend much of my time with mum, and therefore get a more accurate impression of staff attitudes and staff care. Staff always appear very polite, friendly and cheerful around residents and visitors. I always feel very welcome, and I am very comfortable when visiting mum in her new home. Her room is clean, bright and spacious, and well kept and the laundry service is excellent. There is also a very good effort made to offer a varied programme of activities, in which residents may participate if they wish.

The management staff are very approachable and respond well to queries. No business can ever rest on its laurels and believe they are fault free, but I am pleased to say that this management team are making a very good job of trying to ensure that the running of the home and communication with residents and families is efficient and interactive.

When there have been minor niggles arising these have been sorted to our satisfaction. I feel that Mum is seen very much as an individual with her own personality, and is treated with respect. She is still able to make some of her own lifestyle choices, eg. when she gets up, and what activities she participates it.

My mum has been a resident now for 3 months. It was very difficult to make the decision to move her in to a home. However with early onset alzheimer's mum needed ever-increasing support and care. Hopton Care Cottages have surpassed our expectations improving a very warm and individualised environment where mum's dignity is completely intact. In fact, mum has really perked up since she moved in. The ability to socialise and take part in so many new activities has given her a new lease of life. We can't thank the manager and her team enough!

My experience at the home was excellent, I cant fault the care, food, facilities, laundry service, activities or how the home is run. The care staff are amazing and treat the residents and my mum with love and respect.

The home is in a very pleasant location with well planned, spacious and comfortable rooms. The communal areas are welcoming and pleasant. Cleanliness of all areas is of a high standard and the office staff and carers are thoughtful and helpful. Safety of residents was always a priority and activities were well organised. The standard of food was acceptable usually with good choices. Generally the home was a pleasant place to live and my mother was quite contented. She lived there fro Oct 2012 to March 2015.

My Mum, aged 79, had to move into a residential setting earlier this year following the death of my Dad in January 2015. Mum was starting with Dementia and could no longer safely manage in her own home, so we, as a family took the difficult decision to move Mum into full time residential care. My father in law had previously resided at Hopton Care Cottages and we were delighted with the care that he received.

I contacted Joseph at Hopton and both he and Susanne made the journey to Pontefract, approximately 1 hours drive away from Hopton, to have a chat with Mum to see if she thought that Hopton was a place where she could be happy. This was followed up with a visit and lunch at the cottages and Mum was confident that this was the place for her.

She moved in that weekend and all of the staff from the senior management team down have gone out of their way to make Mum welcome during this very difficult period in her life. The Accommodation is excellent, mum even has a substantial decked area assessed by patio doors on which she has a bird table and gets much pleasure from her feathered visitors. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, Mum's laundry is done every day, the meals are of hotel standard and freshly cooked on site. Mum looks so much better now that someone is ensuring that she gets three excellent quality meals every day. There are at least two activities for the residents to participate in every day which keeps both mind and body active. I am also confident that Mum is safe and secure and that someone ensures that she takes all of her medication on a daily basis.

I couldn't be happier that Mum is in a residential home that is very close to where we live, that we can visit on a much more regular basis than we could before and that when we do visit we can spend quality time with her, rather than rushing around getting shopping in and doing household jobs for her. Hopton Care Cottages is an excellent place for a loved relative to move into when they can no longer look after themselves. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

I moved into Hopton Care cottages on 1st July. So far I have been very impressed. The manager came to see me at my home and then again while I was in hospital. He runs a very tight ship. The home is spotless and my cleaning lady comes every day. I am recovering from hip surgery and I am having physio provided at the home which is helping me no end. The food here is excellent and there are beautiful home made desserts or cakes every day. I have not been able to do so many activities as yet but the activities staff have spent time with me in my room which has been lovely. The care staff have been great with me. I have needed a lot of help due to my injury but they are always patient and I don't feel rushed. I especially like the new girl as she jokes that we are both new together. I'm so happy I came to Hopton Care Cottages as its not like living in a care home. I still feel like I have my own place but I have help on hand whenever I need it. I know my family are relieved I am in a safe place and getting better every day.

My step mother became one of the first residents back in 2012 into this stylish, purpose built home.

It was immediately apparent, having visited some twenty care homes, how different they all were. Two homes stood out head and shoulders above the rest with their care and Hopton Care Cottages was at the top of the tree.

Many homes were either conversions or a multi-storey block in design with no thought to living. Hopton Care Cottages is most definitely not one of these and this was most apparent on our first visit. We left with a smile knowing that we had found something different- something special that would become a comfortable home and quickly. We were taken with the careful design offering three different zones and inner gardens that were safe, in particular when someone has dementia. Our goal was to find somewhere that we could live in ourselves and we found it!

A year after my step mother moved in, I was talking with a couple who were in a similar dilemma looking for something suitable for their mother and suggested Hopton to them. They had seen a number of homes and were disappointed in what they saw. I told them of our experience and they too are now thrilled to bits with Hopton and most of all, mum is happy.

The home goes from strength to strength and is managed by an enthusiastic team who aim to have 'happy clients'. They listen to suggestions. They always have a smile but most of all my step mother smiles. It was a hard decision but we know we have done right because we all wish that she could be at home, but it is not possible. We want her to be safe, happy and looked after and that is what we have - thank you Hopton

Outstanding care from the whole care team, especially the love and understanding during mother's last hours. We were so thankful she could stay at Hopton right until the end of her life.

I want to convey my sincere thanks to you and the whole team for the continued love, care and attention that my wife received throughout her stay with you. From my very first visit to my last I felt nothing but relief that we had chosen Hopton Care Home.
