Reviews

9.5 Belmont Lodge Care Centre has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.483)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Belmont Lodge 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Belmont Lodge Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.483 for Belmont Lodge Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (62 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.483

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Belmont Lodge Care Centre is based on 11 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target Reached = 1

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

I'm extremely grateful for the loving care given to my parents. My parents have been at Belmont Lodge for 14 months so far and I have seen many positive changes made in terms of facility renovation and staff training. Belmont Lodge is a safe haven for my parents and they are happy here. I want to express my admiration for the patience and understanding that the staff show in handling aspects of dementia care. It has been of great benefit to have easy access to the manager and senior staff, to gain more insight into these daily care requirements

I find it very hard to write about how I feel about my husband living in Belmont Lodge.
I never thought we would live apart until one of us died, but now he lives in care and I can see he is being looked after with kindness and care.
I must say I feel much better that I ever thought I would, so thank you all at Belmont Lodge for taking care of my husband for me, God bless you all. Many thanks.

Nice clean home for my dad. Friendly staff who are always willing to help and always make our family welcome. Dad is happy as he can be and the food that is provided always looks lovely - lots of variety. I have trust in the care home that they will care for him and meet his needs.

My aunt has been in Belmont Since April 2016. I feel grateful she is safe, well fed, clean and treated lovingly by an incredibly kind staff. I visit very regularly and have never witnessed anything remotely worrying. Belmont's main quality is it's friendly, warm atmosphere.

My 95-year-old mother has been a resident at Belmont Lodge for two years mum has been physically mentally and socially looked after her level of care has been exceptional. She has kept her independence and has been treated amazingly by the staff and management.
Mum is happy and content and that's all I have wanted for her. If there have been any issues staff and management are approachable and have always rectified them.
