This Review Score of 9.817 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.817 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 9.817 for Ladymead Care Home is based on 24 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 4.817 for Ladymead Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (234 Excellents x 5) + (48 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 284 Ratings = 4.817

      • 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 Ladymead Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 24 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 24 Positive Reviews = 2.400 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (24 Positive Reviews ÷ 35 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.371 (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).

Dad receives exceptional care at Ladymead Care Home and so much more. He is very happy, something that none of us thought was possible in a care home environment. The staff at Ladymead understand him so well which is reflected in the quality of the relationship he has with them. They are very professional at all times but they are also genuinely caring and interested in Dad so that Ladymead Care Home really is his home. We are kept very well-informed and time is always made to discuss any concerns we have with Dad's health conditions.

My wife was not very well when she came to Ladymead. The staff are very caring, nurses particularly are very experienced, the staff are very kind and compassionate. They are taking care of her very well, and I and my family very pleased with the improvement with her health and mentality. Her mind is getting better and I can speak to her now sensibly. I do recommend Ladymead to my friends and the taxi drivers that brings me to nursing daily to visit my wife.

My dad passed away after being in the care of Ladymead for the past 9 months. I truly believe that they gave him a better quality of life, care & love for his final months.
The staff came to know and love him and treated him with the dignity he deserved.
It is a very well run care home that I can 100 % recommend. He took part in activities that he would not normally have done, had conversations he wouldn't of been able to have had and it all enhanced his final days.

My sister and myself choose Ladymede nursing home because mum had lived in Wroughton for 53 years and we felt she needed to be in Wroughton. Mum was offered a downstairs room and when we went for a show around the home was clean, the residents that we seen all seemed happy, relaxed and cared for. The staff were a mixture of qualified nurses and carers also a doctor visited the home once a week and if the need arose mum had access to a doctor in an emergency. The care was good and if mum had any bruises, cuts or falls pictures were taken and put into her file but our mum was so good that she always told us before the staff informed us. The food was very good and cooked on site mum was offered a choice of what she wanted to eat each day. Activities were provided every day of the week for residents who wanted to take part. The hairdresser came in twice a week and mum was able to have her nails painted once a week. A lady also bought her dog in once a week for the residents to pat. Entertainment was also available at different times during the year and trips out to various places. We would like to thank the Manager and all the team for there care and attention to our dear mum during her time spent in Ladymead.

Mum has been her for just over 2 years now. The staff have always been lovely and tried especially hard as mum's English is fast dwindling with her dementia and it is often difficult to communicate with mum. However, although they are all brilliant with her there are one or two who are truly amazing having learnt Polish phrases to make her comfortable and happy as is possible. The thing which endears me to the good folk here is that they make it a "home" and extend their concerns to residents families. At the beginning of this month I came in really up set due to a "rather large hiccup" at home and received such warmth, concern form the staff (from the top down) that was most touching, emotionally uplifting an is so helped. Ladymead is part of my family and I love them for it. I cannot think of a better place for mum to be.

I cannot speak highly enough of the care my mother had at Ladymeads until she passed away on 21st April. The location from my home was within two miles, the care and attention she received was outstanding and the records they kept for her well being was always up to date. My family and I consider ourselves very fortunate to have got my mother into such a good care home after she was no longer able to take care of herself.

Ladymead has been my parents’ home for the past 3 years. I have found ALL of the staff to be extremely kind and welcoming. I am always kept informed of any health issues with regard to my parents. The Activities Coordinator does an amazing job organising different events and is also extremely kind in sorting out personal issues. The food is excellent and well presented and celebration birthday cakes are made which is a really nice touch. The laundry is well managed and immaculately clean. The most important asset Ladymead has is its hardworking staff and their amazing smiles!

First class. My mum has been a resident for one year. I visit regular as much as several times in a week (as work allows). I note there is always a consistency and calmness when I visit and I am always made welcome. The staff are fantastic and always encourage mum to join in the activities. If medical or doctors are required I am always informed. I cannot fault Ladymead at all.

Mum has been a resident at Ladymead for over 2 years now and during this time she has always received extremely good care. I have visited the home most days at varying times and always found the staff to be welcoming and friendly, also caring and supportive to both residents and families. The food is home cooked and nutritious, accommodating for individual needs. The rooms are clean, bright and homely decorated. The Entertainment Officer arranges a variety of seasonal social gatherings/events/entertainment for the residents during the year including recent visits from Irish dancers and a Country and Western Singer. Dominoes and Bingo are weekly events along with a Sing A Long. A very caring team. I could not wish more for my Mum.

My mother moved from her house in West Sussex to Ladymead Care Home in July 2014 when family (sons & daughter-in-laws) living close to her emigrated.
Ladymead was selected as when we viewed it with out an appointment we were very impressed cleanliness and layout of the premises.
It is within 5 minutes walking distance from our home which is very convenient and enables us to visit regularly.
The management and all the staff have made every possible effort to assist her to adjust to the new life she is now leading and they keep us informed.
We have found that they do genuinely care for all the residents.
