Reviews

8.3 A Woodlands House has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.307)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for A Woodlands House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

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

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 1 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 4.95 for A Woodlands House is calculated as follows: ( (57 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.95

  • 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 3.357 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for A Woodlands House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 2.8 positive Reviews (14 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 2.8 Target = 0.357

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

Small home with only 16 residents. It has a homely feel and is very well presented and furnished. Calm atmosphere with caring and attentive staff who were always welcoming and accommodating to me as a relative.

I am extremely happy with the care my dad receives at Woodlands House. It is a small very homely care home. My dad has been in the home coming up for a year now. The doctor is called if he has been unwell and I am always kept well informed of his well being. Food is beautiful. The home is kept spotless and my dad is always well groomed. I feel they are excellent and am so happy I found them.

Mum was admitted to this specialist dementia care home one year ago following ill health at home and a hospital stay. She has improved incredibly since being at Woodlands House, they have gone to the trouble of getting liquid meds and ensuring that mum takes them. She can wander into the garden when the weather is good. Following a fall and hip operation recently Woodlands took mum back and she is quite content and doing as well as can be expected with progressing dementia. The carers and staff are brilliant and most have been there for some years.

When my mother went to live at Woodlands House in October last year, she was depressed, underweight, no appetite and very anxious. Since being in the home she has become so contented. She loves the company and always hugs and kisses all the care workers before we go out anywhere. She is also very happy to go 'home'. The meals she receives are all home cooked and she obviously loves them as she has put on weight and eats very well there. We are welcome to visit at any time without notice and always made to feel welcome. As a family we know mum is safe, secure and happy which has made a huge difference, not just to mum's life, but to all our lives.

I cannot praise Woodlands House more highly.
