Reviews

9.1 Kingsmere Retirement Home has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.149)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Kingsmere Retirement Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Kingsmere Retirement Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 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 4.833 for Kingsmere Retirement Home is calculated as follows: ( (62 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 4.316 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Kingsmere Retirement Home 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 15.8 positive Reviews (79 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 15.8 Target = 0.316

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

It is charming in every way - a home from home but 100% nicer!

From the receptionist onwards, everyone was wonderful - food was delicious, an utterly brilliant chef. They manage to create a wonderful atmosphere of a first class hotel with a lot of personal attention and warmth.

I have seen Kingsmere from 'both sides' I visit my mother who is a resident, several times a week and in addition I have stayed at Kingsmere for one week, to recover from an operation. I cannot endorse my views below more strongly. Not only is the personal care 100% but the backup staff e.g. catering, laundry, cleaners etc all help to provide a wonderful, caring and cheerful atmosphere. Residents are treated with respect. Kingsmere Retirement Home gets it right.

Excellent and kindly staff. Good food and activities. Very comfortable, safe rooms. Occasional delays at meal times, some dishes prepared to odd recipes e.g. 'Parma ham and melon' - the ham must be cold as it came from Parma - here it was cooked. 'Crepes Suzette' made with cold factory prepared stodge - not real warm pancakes. But choice and range of food is excellent overall.

A close friend suggested I visit Kingsmere with a view to getting respite care for my aunt. I had concerns about taking a holiday as my aunt needs care. I was delighted with the staff and facilities at Kingsmere and any concerns I had were put to rest. My aunt had a great three weeks and made some lovely friends. I would have no hesitation recommending Kingsmere and I would definitely look for a respite again with you and maybe on a more permanent basis. Thank you, everyone, at Kingsmere.

Trying to care for my husband had got a little hard, due to a heart attack 10 weeks ago things started to get really hard for me. Now my husband is home from hospital. I have been here at Kingsmere since 6/2/17 until 13/2/17. I had a lovely cake made for me on the 8th of February, my grandchildren were here. I have been so well looked after. Nice food, loads to go, lots of fun. Staff can't do enough. I have found all the residents very friendly.

My father was suddenly in a situation where he couldn't cope at home and needed respite. Kingsmere and the staff were exceptional. They understood our problem and facilitated our need for a speedy solution. Not only did they care for my Father but they were very supportive of my situation and gave me the upmost confidence and support. The home doesn't feel like a care home, it has incredible facilities and feels like a top class hotel. I would highly recommend it for either respite or long term.
