Reviews

6.9 Hunters Lodge has a Review Score of 6.9 (6.944)

The Review Score of 6.9 (maximum of 10) for Hunters Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Hunters Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 3 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.944 for Hunters Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (34 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.944

  • 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 2 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hunters Lodge is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5 then divided by 2 = 1.750

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.500 , then divided by 2 = 0.250

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

Hunters Lodge provides a safe and secure environment for people with dementia. The place is always clean - bedrooms and corridors as well as the area seen by visitors. The meals provided are home cooked and quite amazing.

I moved my mum here after 20 months in a previous home that caused her anxiety by not locking bedroom doors. She has now been at Hunters Lodge for over two years. The staff are very caring and patient with excellent humour involved to deal with can sometimes be difficult decisions.

I would recommend this home to anyone. The management are always looking for ways to improve. I leave mum here knowing that I don't have to worry. It's an hours drive away and if I don't get down at a weekend it isn't the end of the world. She will still be cared for in the way you would expect.

Some 25 years ago I acted as a volunteer driver for ambulance care service which brought me into contact with many care and nursing homes although not this one. Some were good others extremely the opposite. When my daughter and I reviewed this one we immediately placed my sister-in-laws name on the waiting list. When the vacancy arose we jumped at the chance and have never regretted it. All of the staff from the owners to the kitchen and cleaning operatives treat inmates and visitors with a friendly greeting. I suspect that a number of their staff have been on the books for some time and I can see why.

The whole staff group (including cooks and cleaners) are properly trained, properly supervised and properly supported by a senior management team which understands elderly people who can no longer live independently. This is evident in their careful and respectful attitude/ behaviour towards residents and the willing participation of non-care staff in the wider fringes of care. Also, relatives and friends of residents are made very welcome and considered "part of the family". This together with a whole raft of input by committed and informed external parties, creates a quality environment where residents can experience variety, humour and appropriate challenges.
