    The Review Score of 9.306 for Westleigh Lodge Care Home is based on 18 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 4.598 for Westleigh Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (135 Excellents x 5) + (72 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 214 Ratings = 4.598

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • 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 4.708 for Westleigh Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 17 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 17 Positive Reviews = 1.700 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (17 Positive Reviews ÷ 48 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.708

I had never been in an EMI dementia unit before my mum came in here. I think this home is brilliant. The staff are very caring. It is clean. The food is good. To do this job of caring for people with dementia you have either got it or not got it. There is no in-between and the staff here have definitely got it 100%.

I visited my dad for the first time today in Westleigh Lodge. I was struck first of all by the number of staff present and attending to the residents which gave me a very positive first impression. I was received by the nurse who spent a long time explaining my dad's care to me, this was reassuring as I live abroad and don't get to visit often.
I feel confident that he is being looked after and is in a caring environment.
My only two issues are difficult as I know the situation in a dementia home 1. The odour of urine when you enter the home. 2. Dad was not wearing his own clothes (the second issue was raised and noted with the nurse).

HC-One, Careline Team at Westleigh Lodge Care Home responded to this review on 13 Jun 2016:

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review. We really value the feedback provided by those who use our services.

We thank you for your kind comments about the care your dad receives and are pleased to hear that staff communicate effectively with you regarding his care.
The Home has a robust cleaning schedule in place to eliminate odours and prides itself on maintaining high standards, there are on occasions times when a continence issue may arise which can result in an isolated odour. Staff endeavour to ensure this is addressed in a timely manner and the area is thoroughly deep cleaned. We are pleased that you raised the issue regarding clothing with the Nurse in Charge as this was the right thing to do in order for it to be addressed at the time. It is not to the standard we expect and we have relayed your comments to the whole team to ensure they are aware of correct process to ensure this does not happen again.

Thanking you again for taking the time to provide really helpful feedback about the home. We value all feedback and ensure it is recorded and acted upon.

The staff here are always friendly, approachable and cheerful, to both myself and my mother. My mother and her room are always clean when I visit, and my mother gives me the impression she is well cared for, and happy.

We are completely happy with mum's care while she has been at the home. Staff and facilities are both great. My mother is at the healthiest, both physically and mentally that she has been in recent years. We would highly recommend this home. The staff are friendly and professional, under very difficult circumstances.

Fantastic home, had relay bad experience with my mother in last care home, the manager came to my mothers rescue and assess my mother suitable for admittance into Westleigh Lodge, never looked back the staff second to none, helpful to my mother they treat her like their mother and pamper to all her needs and go the extra mile to make sure she is safe and well. The accommodation is four star hotel standard, clean and warm with them personal touches. I cannot fault this home my mother as changed in the last 12 months from a old tired looking lady to a happy lively sole. Thank you all at Westleigh Lodge from the bottom of my heart.

Mum settled in so well at Westleigh Lodge everybody made her feel so welcome. The home in Manchester was not the right place for mum to be. She was not getting the care she needed. I am so pleased with the care and attention she gets at Westleigh Lodge everybody makes her feel so loved like her family. They give her so much respect and mum respects them too. It really does feel like she is in her own home! Thank you all so much.

My mother passed away on the 17th March 2016. Mum had been a resident for nearly 3 years. Throughout her stay the staff always showed her kindness, caring, respect and treated her like she was one of their own family. My mum had to go to hospital where they diagnosed her as end of life dementia. After 3 days at hospital I requested she go back to the care home where I know she would be cared for - which she wasn't going to get at hospital. The last 5 weeks of her life the staff did everything they possibly could to make her comfortable. I would just like to say a big thank you to all staff at Westleigh Lodge for looking after my mum and me the way they did.
