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 4.833 for Lordington Park is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.833
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:
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.
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.
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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lordington Park is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 3.6 positive Reviews (18 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 3.6 Target = 0

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Richard A (Son of Resident) on Tuesday 21 July 2015. Relates to July 2015.
We cannot praise this home and the staff highly enough.
Our mother who had fallen and broken her arm in August 2014, needed immediate care after contracting shingles in February 2015, beyond what the home visit care company could provide both to her and our very elderly father.
We were very fortunate in finding Lordington, who could take her the next day and who, fortuitously were also able to take our father. Our mother is very difficult and, as we discovered, was developing Alzheimer's and everyone at Lordington has cared for her with patience and good humour until it became clear that she would need specialist care elsewhere. Our father remains at Lordington and is content there.
It is like a country house hotel, a lovely house with wonderful grounds and setting. The whole family has been very happy for our parents to be there. and we thoroughly recommend it.
