The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Chorley Lodge Residential Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Chorley Lodge Residential Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.778 for Chorley Lodge Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (29 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.778

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 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.

    The 3.404 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Chorley Lodge Residential Care Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered beds ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.154

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Chorley Lodge offers a warm, friendly welcome at all times to the residents and their families. All the staff are kind and caring. When entering the lounge it is obvious to see that the residents are content but feel that sometimes there could be a bit more stimulation. The staff are very willing to resolve any problems that arise and always have time to sit and listen. My mother is very happy in Chorley Lodge. My sister and I visit her regularly but when we are not there it gives us great peace of mind that she is being very well cared for.

Christie Dean, Care home manager at Chorley Lodge Residential Care Home responded to this review on 14 Nov 2016:

Thank you very much for your review of Chorley Lodge.
I am so glad that your mother is enjoying her stay and that you have peace of mind regarding her care.
It does mean an awful lot to us to hear that our staff are doing a good job and that our residents and their families are happy.
We will certainly look into some more entertainment for the residents choosing to be in the lounge area.
Thank you again.
Kind regards.

My mother has been a resident for over 3 years now. I feel confident that her needs are taken care of. Having visited a number of care homes before selecting Chorley Lodge, my brother and I are convinced we made the right choice. The staff are on the whole wonderful and very caring. I visit two or three times a week and quite often witness acts of love to residents from all levels of carers. Quite often, they are unaware of my presence. The management are very approachable. There is a very friendly atmosphere within the home between staff, carers, residents and visitors. The food is of a high standard and the rooms are always clean. Laundry is outstanding.

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review, we really do value all the feedback we receive. Our team of staff create a welcoming environment, aiming to encourage interaction between the residents and develop friendships within the home. We are pleased to hear that your mother is comfortable at Chorley Lodge and that your family are pleased with the care we provide.

My wife had quite severe Alzheimer's Disease. After caring for her at home for five years her condition deteriorated to the stage that 24 hour care was needed. On admission my wife and family were immediately put at ease and were introduced to her main carer and others who were all friendly and helpful. Until she died in December my wife was very well looked after. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and they were all skilled and knowledgeable. If carers had any problems they passed their worries up the chain of command so that all the staff up to the senior manager were left informed and able to offer help.
