Reviews

8 Latham Lodge Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8 (7.952)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Latham Lodge Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Latham Lodge Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 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 4.424 for Latham Lodge Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (16 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 33 Ratings = 4.424

  • 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 3.528 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Latham Lodge Nursing 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 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered beds ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.278

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

Wanted to give due credit to two members of staff at Latham Lodge. My mother was welcomed into the home on Thursday 29th Sept after a long spell in hospital, diagnosed with terminal brain tumour and other problems. She spent just one night and one day and was well cared for such that she was referred back to the hospital on Friday 30th Sept. Such prompt assessment led to readmission with suspected pneumonia. Two staff members were very thorough and telephoned me to inform of their decision and exactly the right thing to have done. I am so grateful that as a new resident they did everything they could to deal efficiently with the situation.

My Father was at Latham Lodge for almost 3 years, and both Dad & his family/visitors were looked after well & treated with kindness and courtesy, from EVERY member of staff.
Latham Lodge may not be the smartest looking Nursing Home compared to some of larger more 'hotel' looking care homes, but they have what matters in abundance. A relatively small turnover of staff, Staff who are friendly, knowledgeable, kind & who REALLY look after their residents. The staff are what makes Latham Lodge a great place for your loved one.
I have no reservations in recommending this Care Home to you. Don't be put off by the look of the place from outside or the décor within. It's clean, and the staff are the absolute heart of the place.

Dear Helen, thank you so much for taking the time to review Latham Lodge, especially at such a sad time.
Your father was a pleasure to care for and we have felt his loss keenly. The team would also like to thank you for the wonderful cupcakes and beautiful card you left; they really were appreciated and our thoughts are with you.
At Latham Lodge we take great pride in ensuring we deliver high quality care and we build our care team to ensure they are able to provide person centred care and spend valuable time with our residents.

I think all of it is very good. The care is excellent. The staff is good. I am very satisfied. The food is lovely. I am very lucky.
