Reviews

9.7 Dale Lodge has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.685)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Dale 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 29 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Dale Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.685 for Dale Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (243 Excellents x 5) + (92 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 343 Ratings = 4.685

  • 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 Dale Lodge is based on 9 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 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 4 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.

The look of a care home doesn't always mean bad care. This home has excellent staff who are very caring and have been with the home a long time. They are gentle in the way they talk and deal with the residents. The food is extremely good and generous. The cleanliness is super and my mother's room is kept beautifully clean and tidy. It is extremely good value for money and I would thoroughly recommend it to other people.

A fantastic care home. After looking after Mum for ten years we looked at lots of homes and Dale Lodge is perfect, so clean and the staff are very friendly. Mum is happy here and I feel lucky to have found such a good care home.
They have lots of events and keep us informed. We are regular weekly visitors.
I can't fault it.

Living in Australia, it's even more important to me to know my dad is well cared for when I am away and unable to be there. Through my sister, who is local, I get to see and hear of my dad's care and seeing it first hand during my current visit, I can see he is treated with respect and his care is good. I am confident he is in a good place and have no doubts about the quality of his care.

My mother has been here for four years. All the staff are kind and caring the meals are lovely. If they don't like what's on the menu they will cook them something they do want. The home is spotlessly clean and tidy. The staff could not treat the residents any better than they do. I visit every day and see how kind the staff are. If they are not well a doctor is called in straight away I couldn't wish for my mum to be in a better place.

Our mum came to Dale Lodge late Nov 2016. It was the last thing we wanted, BUT the best thing we've ever done. Mum is so happy and relaxed. The staff are all amazing, caring loving people, not just for the residents but their families too.

It has become our second home with extended family, residents and carers included. I for one love going to visit and always come away with a happy heart.

We found this wonderful place in November 2016. Mum has dementia and was in hospital from falling ill and needed care 24/7. Mum went to Dale Lodge straight from hospital, she was confused as to where she was and why, but I can honestly say that within a few days she had settled and is completely happy.

The staff here are wonderful, so caring, happy and attentive. Nothing is too much trouble for them. She has a lovely room with a lovely outlook. She is cared for 24/7 and most importantly, she is safe. The staff and all the residents have become our extended family, they have entertainment, singers etc. I would recommend Dale Lodge 100% and thank the manager and her staff.

My mother has been at Dale Lodge for some 5/6 years. They are always friendly, my mother always looked well dressed and cared for. I am not sure what else to say, dementia and Alzheimer's must be the worst care placement to be in and they do it well at Dale Lodge.

When I visit my sister she always looks clean and smart. The staff are warm and caring. The food is good as my sister has gained weight since living there. On 6th August my wife and I attended a BBQ in the gardens with all the other residents and their families. Lives music, good food and sunshine, a lovely afternoon. Overall I am glad my sister is a resident at Dale Lodge.

Thank you for your support.

My mother was a resident at the home for five months. Sadly she died at the end of January this year. The manager and all the care staff enlisted the support of the local hospice who helped them provide for mum's every need during her period of palliative care. They were, attentive, supportive showed their love and devotion to my mum up to the very end. She passed away with her family and carers around her in her room which had become her home. It was warm, peaceful and I couldn't have asked for a better place to be during the end. I would highly recommend Dale Lodge to anyone.

My friend has been at Dale Lodge about four years now. We have visited often during that time and seen many improvements in decoration inside and out. The care and encouragement given to residents and their families has always been excellent but especially so at present. The staff are very compassionate and caring and I wouldn't hesitate to put a member of my family in their care. Every effort is made to enrich life, the activities and arrangements made (like at Christmas) have been really lovely and bought much pleasure.

I have been visiting my friend for approximately 4 years now at Dale Lodge. The staff are fantastic and really care about the residents. The manager and her team are kind, compassionate and do their very best to ensure all the residents are well cared for. Entertainment is regularly arranged. They go the extra mile. The re-decoration over the past couple of years including new furniture has been a great improvement. The public areas are very comfortable and cosy. I would not hesitate to place a loved one in Dale Lodge. The care they receive is wonderful and the staff are really caring. They do their very best for the residents.
