Reviews

8 Woodlands Park Care Centre has a Review Score of 8 (7.983)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Woodlands Park Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Woodlands Park Care Centre 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 4.447 for Woodlands Park Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (27 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.447

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.536 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Woodlands Park Care Centre 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 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.286

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

Our mother arrived at Woodlands, having lived in a country setting for all of her life. She, therefore, felt at home in this spacious, sunny house surrounded by fields full of horses. She (accompanied initially by her dog) was made to feel safe; she was free to explore, helped by the different colours of the main reception rooms; she was entertained as far as her capacity would allow, and as her condition has deteriorated we have been so impressed by the gentle friendliness, good cheer, and care of the staff. This consideration has been extended to us as her family, and during a recent crisis, we were hugely helped by the way that we were consulted and reassured, and by the warmth of the hospitality shown by staff, by night and day.

Marie Shouler, Manager at Woodlands Park Care Centre responded to this review on 07 Feb 2017:

Thank you Jane for your kind words, it is a pleasure looking after your mum.

My father has been at Woodlands now for over 4 years and I have nothing but praise for the staff. The love, care and understanding they show my father is second to none. He is in the latter stages of dementia and can have some very difficult days, but the staff are so accepting and understanding. However, his behaviour just never seems to phase them. Upon entering the home you are aware of 'the family' atmosphere and, you as a relative, feel part of that family. The home is a splendid old manor house and the grounds are beautifully tendered. I would have no hesitation in recommending this home to anyone who has to make one of the most difficult decisions ever - placing a much-loved parent into the hands of someone else to look after.

Woodlands park enjoys a beautiful situation for reaching views over open countryside. There is a lovely warm atmosphere, and relatives are always given a lovely welcome by staff. Residents are treated with great kindness, patience and dignity, first names are used and one is given the feeling of a family friendly environment. There are some exceptional staff there but recent shortages have meant employing some agency staff which is never so satisfactory. The rooms are decorated in a bright an rather quirky way. My partner appears to be very settled there.
