Customer Experience Survey 2018
2nd November 2018
In early 2018 Benetas released the results of the Customer Experience Survey, conducted in the last quarter of 2017, with the goal to better understand the experience of clients that utilise Benetas services, as well as feedback from our residents living at our 13 residential sites. One of the key focuses was to identify whether there were any aspects to care that could be improved or tailored to better meet the clients’ needs. This survey was also seen as an opportunity for those receiving care from Benetas, providing them with an avenue to freely express their feedback, to directly inform quality improvement at Benetas.
1374 respondents participated in the Customer Experience Survey, with feedback from home care clients, residents and families. All Benetas services and sites were represented in the survey, resulting in a fully comprehensive and all-encompassing final report.
The overall outcome of the survey was positive with 85% of respondents rating their experience as good or very good.
81% of home care clients and 79% of residential clients said that their care was delivered to the standard they expect.
One extremely positive element to the survey was the influx of comments highly regarding Benetas staff and the exceptional care they give to residents across our sites and home care services. 94% of home care and 91% of residential clients said ‘staff treat clients with respect’ and 94% of home care and 92% of residential clients said that ‘staff are kind’.
