Overview

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Furze Hill Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Furze Hill Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.349 for Furze Hill Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (78 Excellents x 5) + (70 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 166 Ratings = 4.349

  • 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 Furze Hill 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 5.8 positive Reviews (29 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 5.8 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.

9.3 Furze Hill Lodge has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.349) from 14 Reviews

The managers and staff at Furze Hill Lodge are highly professional in their attitude to residents but also they are warm and caring people. My husband and I have witnessed their behaviour at first hand on many occasions over the last 7 years. The residents are very well looked after, clean and well dressed. The manager and the senior nurse play a hands-on role with their Team. The Home is clean, fresh and cosy. The food is wholesome and appetising. Weekly activities are varied and keep the residents stimulated and happy. Our sister in law is very contented and the staff take time to talk to her and make her laugh. When she had to be taken to hospital, I noted the young carer accompanying her was comforting and chatting to her prior to my arrival. A sign of empathetic nature and good training in my view. I have already recommended the home. The standards are excellent and have never faltered in the time we have been visiting. We are reassured that our relative is so well looked after.

My mother is very happy at Furze Hill Lodge as she feels well looked after, loved and safe.
As a relative I always find Furze Hill welcoming when I visit. The staff are courteous, helpful and nothing is too much trouble for them.
They clearly look after my mother well, they respond to any concerns/questions we have and when I leave after visiting I am always reassured that my mother is safe and in good hands.
The management/office team contact us if my mother is causing them concern e.g fallen out of bed. Good communication!

My father-in-law is now aged 98 years old and is extremely frail.
This month he is receiving "end of life" care.
The care given to him is exemplary - caring, considerate and providing dignity wherever possible.
The nursing required is not easy for the home in terms of staff involvement and time required but they manage superbly.
The staff are supportive to me and keep me fully informed as to his mental and physical status.

My mother-in-law has been at Furze Hill Lodge for two years now. I have been impressed from the start at the attention to detail shown by senior and junior members of staff.
Health emergencies have been handled promptly and efficiently whilst keeping us fully informed. There is always a friendly atmosphere and all efforts are made to keep residents engaged and alert.

The home is warm and clean and most of the staff are warm, kind and caring. It might be a nice idea to have a coffee/tea station so when visiting the visitor could make a drink for the resident and themselves.
The activities co-ordinator is excellent always friendly, chirpy, welcoming, friendly and talkative to visitors.

As in all homes, there are a different quality of staff, some people will always get on better with one than another. The home, in general, is very nice. It could do with updating, particularly in decoration. My mother's room looks like it is from the 60's. The food, in general, seems to be good. The staff always seem very accommodating to me.

The whole home is very clean but tired, in need to a coat of paint. The room is very small it is very difficult to open the wardrobe door. The majority of the staff are very kind and helpful in sometimes difficult circumstances. The tea time menu could be more interesting. The home is always lovely and warm and the staff are very welcoming to visitors.

My mother has now spent three very happy years at Furze Hill Lodge. The standard of care from all the staff has been excellent, as my mother's sense of well being shows. Long may that continue.
