Review Score: 9.7 (9.732)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Ty Draw Lodge is based on 14 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.732 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.732 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 5 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 9.7 for Ty Draw Lodge is based on 14 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 4.732 for Ty Draw Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (124 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 164 Ratings = 4.732

    • 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 5 for Ty Draw Lodge is calculated as follows:

      1. 14 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 14 Positive Reviews = 1.400 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (14 Positive Reviews ÷ 24 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.167 (maximum score = 1)

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1).

  • As of 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk changed from Recommendations to Reviews (positive and negative comments) and added the Ratings Poor and Very Poor. These are marked up as Reviews. Between 1st July and 31st December 2015, we are still processing a number of Recommendations from Recommendation cards sent out before 1st July (These are marked up as Recommendations).

I cant rate this home high enough. It overlooks a recreation field and public park at the front and has a sunny sitting area in a pleasantly flowered garden at the rear. How nice in this selfish world we live in to see staff who are prepared to go out of their way to help both residents and family and always with a smile and a comforting word. Not to forget the tea, coffee and biscuits supplied within 10 minutes of arriving to visit.

A very caring, friendly home, where nothing is too much trouble for them. I am so glad I found this home for my mum as I know she is well cared for and is safe. The staff are always approachable and reassuring if I have any worries or concerns. The food is excellent, always a wide choice and plentiful. It is always warm and bright and there is always a happy atmosphere.

My Mother, Mrs Josephine J Glover, has been a resident at TY Draw Lodge 9 years in July. She will be 99 in August 2015. My Mother has been treated very well while a resident- showered everyday and her clothes also changed every day. Good food, fresh vegetables and a very good mix of foods. We are extremely pleased with her treatment. We are treated very well when we visit weekly. Always welcomed with a tray of tea and biscuits. We find the staff and management very helpful and very obliging.

I was on work experience in Ty Draw Lodge, and it has been an amazing experience. I was treated with such care an although I was only there 2 weeks, I felt part of the staff. The residents are treated just like family, it is so welcoming and war, like a big family! The food is amazing and very filling. All the members of staff treat the visitors and residents with the highest standard of care. I have really enjoyed my time and I will the place as I felt like part of the family even after just 2 weeks. I wonder how the residents feel after years! A brilliant home.

Mum has been a resident at Ty Draw Lodge for almost 4 years now. My family and I describe the care ad devotion of the staff as "wonderful" Working as an Occupational Therapist in the NHS for 20 years in the elderly sector, I have visited many care homes and Ty Draw Lodge would certainly rate this on my list. Mum has settled relatively quickly which was a surprise to us all as she has always been of a nervous disposition, but with all her needs cared for she soon found a "new family", which makes it so much easier for her own family. As the illness has progressed, mum's needs are much more, but every effort is made for her to be safe and secure and respected. I am always made to feel welcome at the home as does any visitor,and makes the experience of Dementia so much easier to bear.

Ty Draw Lodge is a caring, comfortable home from home environment. They have been providing care for me Nana since 2011 and they provide a great deal of reassurance to my whole family knowing that she is looked after all the time. The standard of food is fantastic and every resident can choose from a selection of what they would like to eat each day. Food is also prepared from scratch - with full cooked breakfasts available every day, the cook was rolling pastry in the kitchen when we visited. The staff are very caring and hugely welcoming to visitors whenever they arrive.

My father moved to Bank Hall Care Home a few months back after being unwell and requiring full time care. Since arriving, his outlook has improved dramatically and he is far more cheerful and positive. I am impressed with not just the care provided but his treatment as a person and as an individual. My father was very anxious about going into a care home but he has been made to feel welcome and is definitely not treated as a "number".
