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 5 for Loxley Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5

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:
3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.
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.)
(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 3.148 for Loxley Lodge is calculated as follows:
1 Positive Reviews = 3
0.1 x 1 Positive Reviews = 0.100

How Likely are the Reviewers to Recommend Loxley Lodge?
Reviewer Connection to Loxley Lodge
Review submitted from a Postal Card by Christine A (Friend of Resident/Service User) on Wednesday 28 October 2015. Review relates to October 2015.
My experience with Loxley Lodge is through very good friends. The husband being disabled has had respite there over the past few years. Recently his wife was critically ill and was on a fast track plan and had to move from hospital to a care home and I insisted she was with her husband for her last days. Loxley Lodge took her and the care and consideration they gave them both was excellent, not only for them but to her brother and myself. All the staff are very caring, considerate and very friendly. The rooms are exceptionally clean, bright and homely. I would have hesitation in recommending Loxley Lodge to anyone.
