Reviews

9.3 Prideaux Lodge has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.317)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Prideaux Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 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 4.567 for Prideaux Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (40 Excellents x 5) + (14 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.567

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Prideaux Lodge is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 4 Target = 1.000

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

This is a very pleasant care home. the staff work very hard. Some residents need more attention than others, so we need more staff and fall back on the agency staff. Furthermore, they are trying more regular staff. There is also a nice garden which we can sit in.

Prideaux Lodge is perfect for my mother as there are only a small number of residents which means that the friendly staff have time on their hands to ensure my mother is well looked after. No care homes are ideal places but from the ones that I have seen this is one of the better ones.

My husband took a while to settle as we had not been parted in 65 years of marriage. Once that was overcome he was quite happy, the staff were kind to him and he liked to help with the "wiping up" in the kitchen sometimes (when he was a bit upset- to take his mind off) He enjoys the musical entertainment and joined in with other activities most of the time but his eyesight prevented him from reading. Unfortunately, he has to leave and go to the hospital for treatment and won't be able to return.

Prideaux Lodge is extremely well run. The staff are happy, friendly and welcoming, always there with a smile and a cup of tea. There is an open hours feeling to visiting any time of day. My mother is very well cared for day and night and is happy, safe and content. I can thoroughly recommend Prideaux Lodge to anyone looking to have their loved ones cared for in a clean, efficient and caring environment. Thank you.

I transferred my elderly mother to Prideaux Lodge in February 2016 as she was no longer coping alone at home with a care package. Mum had dementia and was very confused. The Staff at the home spent a lot of time with her helping her to settle in. I chose Prideaux Lodge because of its pleasant, clean and comfortable environment and the friendly and caring attitude of its staff. The rooms are homely, well decorated and maintained, with modern spotless bathrooms.

You hear such horror stories about elderly care homes but I made the right choice with this one. Mum was given a great deal of attention by staff who genuinely seemed to care about their residents. There were plenty of activities in which residents were encouraged to participate. I am grateful to everyone there for making my mother's last months so comfortable and happy. Mum died there peacefully in August.
