This Review Score of 9.058 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.508 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.55 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

    The Review Score of 9.058 for The Lodge (Killamarsh) Care Home is based on 11 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 4.508 for The Lodge (Killamarsh) Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (78 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 130 Ratings = 4.508

    • 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 4.55 for The Lodge (Killamarsh) Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 11 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 11 Positive Reviews = 1.100 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (11 Positive Reviews ÷ 40 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.550

  • 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).

My mum has been in The Lodge for three months, because of the care and consideration afforded to her, her condition has vastly improved. Despite her being prone to infections because of her condition she looks better now than over the last five years. There is always helpful and willing staff to tend to mum or answer any of my questions. Mum feels at home.

We are always made to feel welcome when we visit. My only issue is with the commode being left in Mum's room she cannot get to it herself, so there is no point it being there all the time. It could be brought in when she needs it. She often feels unwell, so has her meals in her room. I would not like to eat in the same room as my toilet. Otherwise I am very happy with all the care.
