The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Lofthouse Grange & Lodge is based on 2 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 8.245 is made up of a Quality Score of 5 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 3.245 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 8.245 for Lofthouse Grange & 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 5 for Lofthouse Grange & Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 5

    • 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 3.245 for Lofthouse Grange & Lodge is calculated as follows:

      1. 2 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 2 Positive Reviews = 0.200

      3. (2 Positive Reviews ÷ 88 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.045

The Overall Average of all the Ratings in the following 

2 Reviews is 5 out of 5

I can't believe how wonderful the home is. My 94 year old mum spent the last few months of her life here, in a warm world of care and love.
I can't think of anywhere she would rather have been.
A brilliant atmosphere, fantastic staff, and the place feels like 'home' What more can I say.....book me in now!!

Janet Richards, Home Manager at Lofthouse Grange & Lodge responded to this review on 15 Feb 2016:

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review, we really do appreciate the feedback. We are pleased your mum was comfortable living at Lofthouse and that you find the home to be warm and pleasant. We are glad your family felt supported by the staff at the home and our thoughts are with you all. Sincerest condolences from all the team, Janet.

I would pick this care home for respite every time. Staff could not do enough for my dad and me. They made it feel like a big family, so welcoming. I can't thank you for all. What a home, if I was to go into a home it would be this one.
