Reviews

9.7 Meadow View Residential Care Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.697)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Meadow View Residential Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 26 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Meadow View Residential Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.697 for Meadow View Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (229 Excellents x 5) + (70 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 310 Ratings = 4.697

  • 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 Meadow View Residential Care Home is based on 13 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). 13 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.

Meadow View is a fantastic, good atmosphere care home. This is made special by ALL the staff and Management team who are friendly, attentive, kind and professional, nothing is ever too much trouble. The minute you walk inside there is a good happy feeling. The lounges are spacious, comfortable with nice furniture. The resident's rooms are en-suite, maintained and cleaned to a very high standard. The food is also of a high standard, various choices, healthy, cooked and presented well. Relatives can visit any time of day and are invited to regular events, birthday celebrations etc. The gardens are a lovely place to sit, with a summerhouse. This home is definitely "5 star".
Thank you to everyone who is looking after my mum and keeping her laughing.

The care shown to my mum recently was outstanding. They really looked after her. After spending a day in hospital, when she arrived back to the home, sandwiches and a welcome cup of tea was waiting for us. The staff made sure mum was comfortable and arranged for 15 minutes observations on her throughout the night. I was put at ease as mum was with people she knew and the staff showed they cared and loved my mum and they did all they could to make her comfortable and safe. The next day I visited, mum was a different person. Sitting in the lounge and talking to people it was a lovely sight to see. I thanked the staff for the care they showed. It is a really good home, mum has been there for over a year now and she is getting stronger and younger as time goes on she is 94!

As a family, we were distressed and heartbroken when our father could no longer be cared for at home. Due to Alzheimer's disease and vascular dementia, he was in need of 24-hour care which, as a family, were unable to provide safely. Our mother, who bore the brunt of the care, was suffering from carer burden. While our father was in emergency respite care, we began the upsetting task of viewing care homes. As a family, we found most homes lacking and could not agree. Some homes seemed caring but were old and dingy. Others were modern but lacked character. However, we were delighted to find "Meadow View". We can't thank you enough.

Thank you for the care, patience, concern and support offered to my mother during her time with you.
Each and every one of you has made mum’s time with you special. Your support and tenderness to her has been outstanding and can be recognised by the many statements of love she made to each of you.
We know that Mum’s passing will leave a space in your hearts as it does ours. But we believe that thanks to each of you, mum was able to enjoy her last years in a way that we could never have provided for and her final months in the presence of a wonderful team of caring and compassionate individuals whose only ambition was that her distress and discomfort were minimised.
Our heartfelt thanks for the kindness so generously extended to our mum and ourselves during her time with you.

Since I first made contact with staff at Meadow View Residential Care Home regarding Mum's need for care, I have felt totally confident in their understanding of her situation and complex needs. She has an unusual form of dementia and settling her into the home was done with so much care and attention; in fact, I felt that the whole family's needs were attended to over this emotional period.
All disciplines of staff treat the residents with respect and care; the home is beautifully furnished/decorated but we chose to take mums own furniture (apart from her bed) and we received lots of help in setting this up on the moving day. The food is incredible and there is so much choice; they always have a selection of cakes and biscuits available to 'help yourself' along with access to hot and cold drinks at any time of day/night. Communication is great; health and safety is paramount and staff appear competent, actively involved with residents & work well as a team. There is always a cheerful and friendly atmosphere. It is their HOME!

We have been caring for our aunt for 7 years now, she suddenly deteriorated needing 24/7 care. We visited a few care homes and they didn't provide what we wanted for our aunt, safety, companionship, activities, care and lovely clean comfortable room and ensuite until we were recommended Meadow View. From our 1st telephone call it was sold to us. The staff have been so supportive of auntie and us, auntie is safe, has a wonderful room, lots of activities etc, she looks better than she has for months (so do we). All in all, we can't recommend Meadow View enough especially certain staff. Thank you all so much.

We are so happy with the care home, especially the carers who always treat us as if we were going into your home with the invitation for tea and coffee. We had looked at a few homes before my husband became a resident and this one stood out. Two others were nice but could not care for my husband's severe dementia. It is a traumatic decision but I now have peace of mind. Thanks.

My mother has been a resident for less than a year and during this time has settled in well. The staff are excellent, very caring and considerate, taking great pains to ensure mum's comfort and happiness. New management seems very positive taking residents wishes into account when making decisions for the future.
Many of the staff go the extra mile to ensure mum is happy and feels secure.

Always found the staff helpful and welcoming, with access to tea and coffee making facilities.
Sometimes my father's room has not been as clean as I would have liked, but when speaking to staff they are always helpful in rectifying the problem.
Had some problems with my father's clothes, woollen cardigans and suit jackets washed or tumble dried on too hot a setting, resulting in clothes shrinking or being very creased.

Linda Coombes, Deputy Manager at Meadow View Residential Care Home responded to this review on 21 Mar 2017:

Thank you for your lovely comments about our team. With regards to the laundry, I was sorry to read this as it hadn’t been mentioned before but I am pleased that this has now been discussed and resolved. Please do come and speak to me about anything in the future my door is always open.

Meadow View is a wonderful Care Home and is the finest example of how a Care Home should be run.
The Home keeps you informed of your relatives welfare and condition and nothing is too much trouble. The staff are very caring and go that extra mile to make the residents feel cared for and comfortable.
You can visit at any time and are always made welcome with a cup of tea, so what you see is what is happening all the time, so no set visiting times. During the last days of my step-father's life, he was made very comfortable, staff were sitting reading to him during his last hours and the family feels assured that his passing was very peaceful.
Thanks a million to the staff, you deserve medals.

My friend was admitted without any fuss or bother after having an assessment due to her suffering from memory loss.

Staff are always helpful and caring towards her. If there are any queries, they are eager to help and/or resolve.

The home is always very clean and the facilities therein are 'top notch'. There are daily activities, both a.m. and p.m., by outside volunteers and the guests are encouraged to participate.

The food is of good quality and value. The home allows relatives/friends to dine with the user at a small affordable cost which we have done on several occasions.

Visiting the user is never a problem - 7 days a week.

My mother has only been a resident at Meadow View Residential Care Home since 30/09/16. Already she has been involved in activities and participated in card making and reminiscing over pictures of places she and my father used to frequently go. I feel it is important my mother takes part in the homes daily activities as I believe it is helping her to settle in which has helped me to accept the situation.

Mum has been a resident since July 2016. It was a difficult time for all the family and Meadow View Residential Care Home helped enormously with the transition. We cannot fault the facilities or the staff who show great kindness and patience. We are very reassured Mum is in a safe and caring environment.

My Aunt moved to Meadow View, as one of their first residents, after her dementia meant she could no longer stay in her own home. Right from the very beginning, it was clear to see that the home manager and staff cared greatly for their residents. I visited on numerous occasions and always found my Aunt well cared for and treated with dignity and respect. The home is secure, well maintained and in a lovely setting. I was always kept up to date with all aspects of my Aunt's care and fully involved in all decision-making. Sadly my Aunt recently passed away, however, I will always be very grateful to all the staff for making her stay a happy, cared for and fulfilling one.

What has impressed me most apart from the excellent facilities is the high calibre and commitment of all the staff. They really care. It was a difficult decision to place our elderly mother in resdiential care but the staff have made the transition more comfortable for her. They address her fears, reassure here and take good care of her physical requirements. At the same time, they have been supportive of us in our concerns. Well done! Thank you.

My mother was one of the first residents to move to Meadow View, as soon as it opened. The care she has received has been excellent and she was able to settle in quickly and happily. She has made friends with other ladies of a similar age and is very happy with the care she receives form the staff. They are kind, considerate and make her feel valued and as contented as she can be, having lived in her own home all her life. The receptionist is a breath of fresh air and encourages the residents to participate in different activities.

The general running of the home is very good and it is good to see that they are working to improve the living quality of all the residents.

No longer able to live alone, my mother moved into Meadow View where she was warmly welcomed. The staff were kind and friendly and quickly gained my mothers confidence. My mother quickly changed rooms at her request. While in the home she enjoyed some "treats" she had not enjoyed for a long time: A bath rather than a shower; having her hair cut by a hairdresser; a visit from a chiropodist. I don't believe we could have found a nicer home.

My mum moved into Meadow View recently. During what was a very stressful time for the family the staff were very helpful and couldn't have done more to help us with arrangements. I realise this is a brand new complex but never the less it is beautifully maintained, with excellent decor. It is so welcoming. The family are now happy and confident that mum is being well cared for with dignity and kindness. This home should be blue print for all other homes.

Home always seems very friendly (staff) and always clean and tidy. Staff do seem to spend a lot of time with residents. There are lots of activities going on which mum seems to be joining in with and enjoying. Although mum hasn't been at the home very long, she does seem to have settled well. Home is very secure with codes needed to get in and out. Overall we do not have any complaints.

My wife and I are impressed with the care that my father receives. My sister likes the house that our father is in. My father is not impressed with the fact that he cant have a lighter in his possession as to him being allowed to go out for a cigarette when he wants and also can't understand why he has got a door to the garden in his room, which is all locked up and not able to get out to enjoy his new garden seat outside his room.

Dionne Lowe, Home Manager at Meadow View Residential Care Home responded to this review on 31 May 2016:

I am so pleased to hear you and your family are happy with our home and the care your father receives. We always support our residents to sit outside and will always open the doors leading out onto the gardens if they would like to do so, however as a home where many people are living with dementia we do need to ensure they are safe so don’t leave the doors unlocked. In terms of having lighters, we always support residents to go outside and smoke whenever they choose to but again, with so many residents living with dementia it is important that lighters are kept in a safe place. I do hope you understand that everything we do is for our residents’ safety and well-being but if you would like to discuss this any further please don’t hesitate to contact me.

My husband had a week of respite care in October. He enjoyed the experience. He said the care was wonderful and the food every bit as good as a top restaurant. My friend and I have both said there is nothing we have seen or heard that gives us any concern. We were treated with real friendliness and total professionalism.

As a result my husband is going in full time in February. He is a very quiet very private man that I really wondered how he would adjust but he settled quickly in October and said that is where he wanted to go if he needed full time care.
Today we called in for an assessment and he was greeted so warmly it felt like coming home! He keeps saying how he felt so welcome.

The whole experience has been good in every way. I recommend this home to anyone without reservation. A huge pat on the back is richly deserved by the manager and all staff involved!

My husband, who suffers from Parkinson's and Vascular Dementia, spent 2 weeks respite at Meadow View. He had excellent care, and being always with me, did not seem to miss me at all in the 2 weeks. He does suffer from psoriasis if he is stressed and has patches of very discoloured skin which stemmed from a previous break in a different home. Your carers treated the area, with the appropriate ointment and told me about it straight away even though I did not mention this particular area before. When he came back home I noticed an immense improvement of the skin and no outbreaks of psoriasis anywhere, so he was very happy there and so am I , his wife and carer.

I visited my granny with my 3 young sons. We were welcomed by staff and everyone there did their utmost to look after us - giving my sons games to play with and providing tea and cake to have with granny. The place was clean and granny had been very well taken care of with dignity and respect.
