Reviews

9 Chippendayle Lodge has a Review Score of 9 (9.002)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Chippendayle 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 Chippendayle Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.521 for Chippendayle Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (44 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.521

  • 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 4.481 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Chippendayle Lodge is based on 5 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 10.4 Target = 0.481

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

My brother-in-law has been happy for the past four years. Staff were very good and helpful.

My brother-in-law looked on the home as his home and was very happy there. The food was very good.

Cem Osman, PA to the Director of Care at Chippendayle Lodge responded to this review on 27 Jul 2017:

Cleanliness: We have a full team of housekeepers, which undertake cleaning every day. The home carries out regular audit checks to ensure it’s clean, tidy and to the standard we expect from our staff for a nice clean environment.

My mother was admitted in Feb 2017 initially into their respite room and subsequently into a permanent room; she is well looked after and is gaining weight well as she likes the food provided. The staff are always very helpful whatever time I visit. The garden outside is much enjoyed now summer is here and gives an opportunity for more exercise and a topic for conversation. Chippendayle Lodge is the perfect place to look after mum and cope brilliantly with her complicated medical needs and daily care.

My nan has been living at Chippendayle Lodge for 8 months now and we have nothing but praise for the service! My nan has 'come alive' again! All standards are exceptionally high and it is like 'home away from home'. You can easily see that all the staff there including the chefs really care for the residents and it's not just a job. We as a family can not recommend this care home enough. :)
