The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Loganberry Lodge is based on 14 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 8.810 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.607 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.203 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published (including Restricted Publication) Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 8.810 for Loganberry Lodge is based on 14 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.607 for Loganberry Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (109 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.607

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. 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 provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 4.203 for Loganberry Lodge is calculated as follows:

      1. 14 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 14 Positive Reviews = 1.400 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (14 Positive Reviews ÷ 138 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.203

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1).

The care given to my father is excellent, he gets quite a few dizzy spells/confusion at times and the care given to him at these times is outstanding. My father is happy at Loganberry Lodge and well looked after, if my dad's happy then my family and I are happy too! Thank you to you all.

Our mother has recently moved from a Warden Assisted environment, and following a severe fall before Christmas, has spent just over 2 months on hospital. Mum has really recovered well in herself, but her mobility is only a fraction of what it was. The hospital have said that this will be as good as she will get at 87yrs and unless care during the night for toilet etc, was possible, she was considered as highly unsuitable to return and next time we may not be so lucky in her pulling through. Since moving into Loganberry Lodge, she feel safe, she has company and above we feel she is secure and as safe as possible. The change in her attitude is remarkable. Thank you so much for making her so welcome !!!

I cannot praise the care home enough for all the attention they give my dad. He has deteriorated very fast since his admittance in May. He also had to cope with the loss of my mum within a month of his admittance. The staff are first class to him and is as a family. All the residents look immaculate, as so much time and effort is spent giving them one to one attention making them feel safe and secure. Dignity is preserved at all times.

I would recommend this home to other people. I have always been happy with the care and attention Mum has received since being here. The staff are genuine and caring, even when rushed off their feet. On the negative side the laundry seems to lose Mum's underwear a lot which seems annoying as most times it is never found again and becomes expensive as the family has to renew items.

My mother became a resident in March 2015 after losing her husband in December 2014 after 68 years of marriage. She was seriously ill in January and was unable to return home. Social services placed her in another care home which she hated and was very frightened. So together with my sister we moved her to Loganberry Lodge, where I'm pleased to say she has settled really well and is very happy. The staff are all helpful and caring putting our minds at rest.

My husband has been looked after very well in the years he has spent here. He is happy here, he loves the entertainment as well. Also it is very convenient for me to visit my husband, as I only live 10 mins away. It is very handy to have the doctors visit if need be, the staff here all do their best to help. We all get along, staff, residents and visitors.

My father has been a resident for over two years and although his health has deteriorated the staff have been excellent in providing the essential care to manage his changing needs. When he was able to walk they tried to integrate him with others, but as he gradually became less mobile and unable to get out of bed they endeavour to keep him comfortable, whilst maintaining a good level of hygiene and ultimately ensuring dads dignity is maintained at all times.

After losing my husband, having no family I felt very lonely, but since coming into Loganberry Lodge my whole life had changed. The "Home" is spotlessly clean, comfortable and the staff are wonderful. My whole life has changed for the better.
