3.4 Lent Rise House has a Review Score of 3.4 (3.375)

The Review Score of 3.4 (maximum of 10) for Lent Rise House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lent Rise House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 3.375 for Lent Rise House is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (5 Poors x 2) + (4 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 3.375

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lent Rise House is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0

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

Two years ago I wrote a review saying service was excellent. Now it is not. All I can say is read the CQC report. A very distressing time.

Sarah Bygrave, Communications Executive at Lent Rise House responded to this review on 20 Feb 2018:

The Fremantle Trust strive to deliver exceptional care and support to residents within our services and we are disappointed that there have been a number of occasions where we have failed to meet the required levels of care at Lent Rise House. As soon as we identified issues at the home we liaised with our partners and families and have put in place an action plan to ensure the home delivers the expected levels of person-centred care.

We are continuing to work with partner organisations, employees, residents and their families to enable open and transparent conversations while the action plan is delivered.

Regional Director

This is a very friendly home providing both nursing care and dementia care in a clean, comfortable purpose-built building, with beautiful gardens, and various lounges and sun-rooms that are full of light and space. My grandmother spent her last three years her until the age of 101, receiving nursing care. She had a strong personality, a bright mind and a very wide life experience, and could sometimes be very frustrated with her loss of independence and almost total need for care. The Lent Rise staff took the trouble to understand her and treat her with compassion and dignity, adapting their timetables and patterns to her preferences wherever possible (even when perhaps more inconvenient for them) and encouraging her to make the most of all the opportunities on offer whilst still respecting her privacy.They showed affection, care and great good humour. When visiting her, we (her relatives) felt not as if we were visiting an institution, but were made to feel part of a wider Lent Rise family - not just from my grandmother's own carers, but also from admin, cleaners and activity staff as well as other residents. This good relationship meant that we felt very comfortable to discuss any particular issues as they arose, knowing that they would receive a positive response; it also meant that there was great support available for us as my grandmother approached the end of her life. The activities team ensure a varied programme of events both in and out of the home, going the extra mile such as coming in even on days off for birthday parties or taking on the care of chickens in the gardens, to enrich the experience of the residents - and family and friends are welcomed to bring any of their own skills and time to all these events. I would have no hesitation in recommending Lent Rise House.
