Reviews

9.6 Alder House Care Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.574)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Alder House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Alder House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 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 4.991 for Alder House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (107 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.991

  • 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 4.583 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Alder 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.583

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

I can only review on the strength of a nine-day visit but you can see from the grades below that I considered everything to be of a very high standard. I would also like to add that all the staff are unfailingly and tirelessly helpful and caring.

After a tricky start to my husband settling I can now relax! Staff have helped me with my dilemma around visiting my husband who makes it difficult for me leaving. He responds to staff extremely well - they are caring, kind and very understanding of his needs and mine too! Although Alder House has a luxury hotel atmosphere it is so "family" orientated. Very "open" and friendly - thank you!

My mum had 2 weeks respite whilst we were on holiday. This was a great comfort to us. On our return, Mum was really happy with the care she received. She looked really well and she had a great time. She also had a day out to Bridlington. She made lots of new friends and she said all the staff were excellent. We won't hesitate to use Alder House in the future.

Couldn't believe that care homes could be like this. Hotel standards and care is exceptional. All staff are very caring and nothing is too much trouble. Home manager was so friendly when we moved mum in and she always greets us with a lovely smile. Gardens are beautiful and mum really enjoys the activities. This home was recommended and we have not been disappointed so far.

My mother moved into Alder House in November 2016, she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's 8 years ago. The difference in her is amazing. Mum is a very active person and gets bored easily but there is so much going on at Alder House that she doesn't have time to get bored, Her dementia seems to have gone back a stage, she can now hold a conversation again and can join in and understand activities such as Bingo, Boules, Knitting and lots more which she had lost the ability to do. I can't thank Alder House and all of the staff enough for giving my lovely mum back to me and giving her a life worth living.

I would just like to say a big thank you to all of the staff who looked after my mum whilst I was on holiday for 3 weeks, they are a credit to your company. I would recommend Adler House to other people looking for respite, and already have.

My father suffers from Parkinson's disease and had memory and mobility problems. He came for respite stay and is now a permanent resident. The staff are wonderful, caring, joyful and attentive. The activities coordinators provide many different activities to cover all abilities and interests and there is always something going on. The rooms are clean and bright and the garden is lovely. I would certainly recommend Alder House highly.
