Shedfield Lodge, Southampton, Hampshire

To this day the building has been restored to reflect original designs providing a long established care home for the elderly. Grazing ponies, open fields and a landscaped garden provide a quiet rural feel only 10 minutes drive from Fareham or 5 minutes drive from Wickham.

Reviews

9.4 Shedfield Lodge has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.368)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Shedfield Lodge 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Shedfield Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 6 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 4.486 for Shedfield Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (41 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.486

  • 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 4.882 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Shedfield Lodge is based on 6 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target = 0.882

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

Mum could be an awkward, argumentative person but the staff dealt with her extremely well.
She had several medical problems which were also dealt with extremely well. Mum wasn't happy in her later years, nothing was ever right, the staff had the patience of saints.

Thank you, Chris, for your very kind words. It was a pleasure to have and to help Mum. I shall pass on your praise to the staff who we value here so much.

I have nothing but praise for the management and carers at Shedfield Lodge. My husband went in early February he has always been treated with the best of care, respect and concern for his well being from every carer, domestics and management.
The lodge is kept very clean including residents rooms.

To sum up my husband could not be in a better place. Where all carers give 100% to all residents, and they are always smiling a very happy environment for them.

Thank you to everybody from myself for the help and support given to me at all times.

Debbie, many thanks for your review and kind words. It's a pleasure to have Mum with us at Shedfield Lodge, such a wonderful lady.

The staff are kind. Talk to the residents. Know their likes and dislikes and know who I am when I visit and tell me where my mother is. She is clean and appears content. They deal with some often abusive residents in a calm and professional manor.

Thank you so much Rosemary for such a lovely review. Your Mum is wonderful to look after and it's great to have her as part of 'the lodge family'.

My mother is well cared for at Shedfield Lodge and I have found the care staff generally to be very kind to my mother and am confident that she is well treated.
I have had occasion to raise some minor concerns, but am pleased that my concerns have, or are being addressed.
The Care Manager was extremely helpful to me when the difficult time came to make the decision to place my mother in care and continue to offer support to me.
I would happily recommend Shedfield Lodge to others as I know that my mother is happy in the home, and I now know that I made the right choice for her ongoing care.

Thank you for your review Paul and very kind words. Very much appreciated and it is a pleasure to look after your mother. As always, we do our best to support the family too in any way we can.

My Mother has been at Shedfield Lodge for over 2 years and we have never had any concerns over her care. The staff all seem to be kind and considerate to all the residents even under the pressure that goes with the job. We attended a summer party last year and all the staff were motivated to give the residents an enjoyable 40's experience which was much appreciated by residents and visitors alike. Communication with the home is excellent, we are contacted on a regular basis with any points concerning my Mother's care.
The home itself is a listed building and therefore not the easiest on the eye but it is clean and it is the carers and management that make the home, not the bricks and mortar.
We would have no hesitation in recommending this home
