Reviews

8.8 Lyncroft Care Home has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.802)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Lyncroft Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lyncroft Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.917 for Lyncroft Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (78 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.917

  • 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 3.885 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lyncroft Care Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 7.8 positive Reviews (39 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7.8 Target = 0.385

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

Since my nan has become a resident at Lyncroft care home she has improved dramatically! She has put on weight, cares about her appearance and has found a new lease of life. She goes out regularly and joins in most activities going on in the home, she loves being involved and helping where she can. We can't thank Lyncroft enough for all they do!

When mum moved into Lyncroft Care Home, of course, it was such a worry as all families experience.
When we visited a few days after her move, we were so comforted by the fact she was joining in social activities, making friends and was happier than we had seen her for years.
Mum has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and Vascular Dementia, and had been refusing all intervention from her carers at home.
Since living at Lyncroft, mum has a new beginning and her life had become so much richer.
Living at home was refusing all food and had lost so mush weight. Now mum has been putting on weight, eating all her meals, and it has been such a transformation. Thank you to the manager and the team. You are all stars !!

The staff at the care home are all lovely and have slot of time for the residents. They are always doing fun things and days out with them and my old neighbour is happy there.
When I've been to visit, it's always been lovely and clean and her room is always clean and tidy too.
