The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Earls Lodge Care Home is based on 17 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.474 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.794 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.68 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 9.474 for Earls Lodge Care Home is based on 17 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 4.794 for Earls Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (163 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.794

    • 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 4.68 for Earls 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 ÷ 50 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.680

  • 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.

We were made to feel very welcome and our minds out to rest, we were all treated with respect and dignity for me it was a very hard decision to make to put my mum in a care home but she had only been a short time. I am very pleased with how quick she has settled in. So glad she is in a good care home, can not fault any thing or the staff.

My dad was extremely poorly when he came to Earls Lodge. After a long stay in hospital, several bouts of hospital acquired infections and falls his weight had plummeted and he was confused and frail. With the care of the excellent staff at Earls Lodge he is back to his old self again. The home is well run and the staff are very friendly, kind and caring. The food is excellent and the home is very clean and welcoming. My dad cannot praise the treatment he receives at Earls Lodge too highly and he is happy and settled there.

My gran was moved to Earls Lodge from hospital as she is unable to live on her own now due to dementia. I have never known a place like it, the staff are amazing and treat everybody that lives there with respect and look after them well.
The home is well looked after.
My gran has been there a week today and the difference in her is amazing and I can't thank the manager and staff enough for what they do
I would and have been singing the praises to everybody I know.
Knowing that my gran is very well cared for it makes the illness better to cope with.
Thanks again.

Thank you Gerald, it's really nice to get this kind of feedback.

During my father in laws stay here, I have had no complaints about his care. The staff have always been helpful, caring and considerate. They have become his main family. I feel that without this care he would not be here today. We live approximately 35 miles away and did at one time consider moving him to a home nearer to us. However as he and we are happy with Earls Lodge this would have been unfair.

Thank you Dawn, this is very good to hear.

Our life long friend has been a resident at Earls Lodge for 4 months. During this time we have found ALL levels of staff to be friendly, patient and extremely caring. We are always welcomed with a smile and a chat (we visit every day) which is much appreciated. Nurses and management have shown compassion, knowledge and respect during serious illness and challenging times. The food is very good and the kitchen staff will accommodate our friends' requirements even when it's not on the menu. Our experience of Earls Lodge is a well run, warm and welcoming establishment.

Thank you Liz - we always try to provide the highest level of care and will always strive to improve. Your feedback is always appreciated.

Since my mum came into Earls Lodge I am happy that she has settled in so well and is extremely happy. The staff are excellent in every way always on hand if any worries. They look after mum fantastically always checking if she needs anything. The home is spotlessly clean and is kept that way always. The menu is varied and suits all dietary needs. I would recommend to anyone looking for a care home I can't complain about anything.

Thank you for your feedback and review is much appreciated. We always strive to deliver the best levels of care, but will also always strive to improve and your reviews are an important part of this.

My mother really enjoyed her stay at Earls Lodge. She was there for two weeks respite care after a fall. Being a lady at 99 years old mother is normally very independent but she said all the staff were very helpful and she thought of the stay as a little holiday. Many thanks from both sons for the service provided by Earls Lodge.

Many thanks for your review.

All staff are very caring and know mums likes and dislikes. They prompt her when necessary with food which is good. I have also stayed for lunch sometimes. It is good to have an en suite bathroom, she had some issues with laundry not being returned but we have marked things and this has improved.

Moved my mum from some very basic care facility in Stockport as they didn't tackle issues raised. The team at Earls Lodge are all making a positive contribution to support my mum. The positive reassurance from the staff is great. There is a really good "feel" to the home everyone seems to happy to help.

After a stroke my husband was said to need 24 hr nursing care and after visiting several homes in the area I chose Earls Lodge. On two occasions he had problems health wise the nursing unit acted promptly and one occasion he was hospitalised. The nursing staff are very attentive and friendly with him and he had relaxed and settled in.

I find myself very fortunate to find this care home for my husband, when you've got excellent management who listen and are very helpful. The staff are very caring and it's down to them, that my husband is now very settled.
It means a lot when having to place him in a care home that i can go home knowing he's cared for. I also have a good relationship with management and staff, nothing is too much for them.
