7.5 Compton Lodge has a Review Score of 7.5 (7.544)

The Review Score of 7.5 (maximum of 10) for Compton Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Compton Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 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 for Compton Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (13 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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 maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users 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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 3.544 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Compton Lodge 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target = 0.294

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

Reviewer Connection to Compton Lodge

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
  • Friend of Resident/Service User
  • Stepdaughter of Resident/Service User

Our stepfather has been at Compton Lodge for a year and is settled and content. We chose this home out of 6 North London care homes visited, as it has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, in a lovely building, which does not feel institutional. The Edwardian house retains its charm while meeting the needs of the elderly residents. There's a large, attractive garden and three nice lounges.

Our stepfather enjoys the weekly art and music classes, run by fantastic professionals. There are also church services, and a Friday social evening, run by friends of the home.

Compton Lodge has a stable senior management team, and low staff turnover, with little need for agency staff. Staff are committed and caring, and ready to talk to relatives and review care plans. Friends and family can visit at any time, and are made welcome. There is parking on the doorstep for several cars.

Compton Lodge was given a "good" rating at the last CQC assessment.

This care home is exceptional. Of many it was the only one that did not feel institutional. It is in a beautiful Edwardian house with the feel of a country hotel. There is a garden for residents and my mother is in a comfortable decent sized room with ensuite facilities.

The home's management and carers are superb. There is a sense of continuity, low staff turnover and a family feel. My mother has been happy throughout her long stay - she had top quality care, is always well dressed and clean, and has been encouraged to take part in activities varying over time - art, gardening, computer, music, yoga, singing sessions with regular celebrations including BBQs, summer fairs, Christmas concerts and parties.

The management listen and respond. There are regular consultative meetings for relatives/friends and every opportunity to shape the running of the home and resident management. Relatives are very positive and in the last CQC assessment it was given a 'Good' rating.

I only see one lunchtime. The food is not always served hot. There is no alternative to mushy peas. Activities are very sparse, only art and music, which are frequently cancelled. There is a marked lack of information to residents. Toilets are not always clean, rooms are not secure, but I realise why. The staff are pleasant and helpful.
