Reviews

7.9 Cavell Lodge has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.882)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Cavell Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cavell Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.743 for Cavell Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (26 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 4.743

  • 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 3.139 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cavell Lodge is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.139

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

My mum has been in the nursing home for nearly two years. Overall they have done a lot to help my mum come to terms with the changes in her life. She will be 92 in February, I myself and family do everything we can to help her with the long days. The care staff are lovely and do their best for everybody. I am so lucky to have my mum at Carvel Nursing Home. It's never easy when your mum can never do anything for herself, she still has a brain and can communicate and is a very strong person. Thank you to you all for the care you give - a job I could not do.

Our mum came to Cavell Lodge in February 2016. Sadly mum wasn't there very long, but the care and support they gave our mum and the family was excellent - nothing was too much trouble. We could visit anytime.

My Aunt has been resident at Cavell Lodge for 18 months. Needing to find accommodation at short notice, I believe we were lucky to find a vacancy here. The lodge is purpose built and bright and has a more hotel-like feel than some other homes I have visited in the area. The staff are friendly, and there is always a good atmosphere. My Aunt has been in good health since moving in, having been hospitalised on three occasions immediately beforehand. We have had no issues - my Aunt eats better than she would do at home, has more company than she would get at home, and is supported in those day to day activities that she could no longer manage at home. Care is expensive, but I do feel that my Aunt gets value for money at Cavell Lodge. None of us wants to go into care, but when infirmity demands that level of support, there is no choice. The choice is where we go, and I am very content with Cavell Lodge.
