This Review Score of 8.124 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.833 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 3.291 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 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 8.124 for Dunniwood Lodge is based on 2 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 4.833 for Dunniwood Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (21 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.833

    • 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 3.291 for Dunniwood Lodge is calculated as follows:

      1. 2 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 2 Positive Reviews = 0.200

      3. (2 Positive Reviews ÷ 44 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.091

The Overall Average of all the Ratings in the following 

2 Reviews is 4.8 out of 5

Very happy with service from start to finish. The Manager is very knowledgeable and helpful in liaising with other agencies. Only used for respite care at the moment but would be happy for Mum to stay on a permanent basis as very clean and staff helpful, she was happy there.

Mum was very nervous on her first visit to the home, she was 91 years old and had never stayed anywhere on her own and she was made to feel wanted and special which eased her fears. I found the manager to be approachable and when I asked for my mum to have a downstairs room instead of the one allocated upstairs she was happy to oblige.

Mum's room was nicely furnished, clean and well decorated with a pleasant outlook (she said she'd like the same room if possible on her next visit). The room also had a separate toilet, washbasin and a small table. Mum said the room was adequate for her needs but said that on her previous visit she had a reclining chair and within a few minutes she had a recliner.

All the carers, handyman and office staff were all friendly, sociable and efficient. Mum loved her bath as she only has showers at home, also having her hair done on site which was very reasonable priced. I would not hesitate to recommend Dunniwood Lodge.
