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

1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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.

Reviewer Connection to Loxley Lodge

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.
