Overview

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Lavender House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lavender House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.727 for Lavender House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (130 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 176 Ratings = 4.727

  • 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 Lavender House Care Home is based on 10 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 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 7.2 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.

9.7 Lavender House Care Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.727) from 15 Reviews

Mother says she is very satisfied. Staff dress her carefully, she has regular showers, hairdresser and nails. Staff always respond to the buzzer. My mother is happy when she goes to bed but finds being woken up at 6 am too early.

Staff were so good and kind to my sister and were always looking into her room to see if she was OK.
Anything she asked for they always try to help.

My father has been in L.H. for two months now.
He has settled very well. He feels safe, well looked after and he really likes the food.
I have found all the staff to be helpful and caring. They go out of their way to ensure Dad has everything he needs and always with a kind word and a smile.

All staff from kitchen, cleaners, maintenance staff to carers are so friendly. Management keeps me fully informed of all aspects of my aunt's care. Have dropped in at random times and the welcome is always warm. My aunt, at 89 years of age, lived independently, is mentally fit but physically frail and had carers 4 times a day, but, although I visited for 30 mins a day, she was extremely lonely. At Lavender, she has company when she wants, has made new friends and I am confident she is well looked after and attended to.
Staff are quick to react to any medical worries, calling doctors when necessary. Aunt did have a fall, of her own doing and paramedics and ambulance quickly attended and I was informed straight away. At home, she may have been laid there for hours. I have peace of mind that my aunt is receiving good care and my aunt feels reassured that staff are available 24 hours a day, she has company, enjoys lovely meals and is treated with dignity and respect.

My Dad was diagnosed with Lewin body's dementia in 2012 and for some time me and my sisters looked after him at home. As time passed we noticed that Dad's dementia had got worse and that we could no longer look after him.
After many months of looking for a care home in April 2014 dad moved into Lavender House where he started the next chapter of his life. Within a couple of weeks of Dad moving into Lavender House, we noticed a big change in his behaviour. He seemed more confident happier and content. And although my father's English was not the best the staff looked after his every need.
Over time dad's dementia worsened and it was sometimes difficult to recognise the person we once knew and loved. On the 1st February 2017, Dad passed away and we are still coming to terms with his death.
During dad's time at Lavender House, he was always treated with the utmost care and respect. Lavender House was his home where he was safe and part of a big family that looked after each other.

My Mother came into Lavender House in Jan 2017, we as a family were a little unsure about care homes but we knew this was the best place for our mum to be. From the minute we arrived we were greeted with a warm welcome and within an hour almost every member of staff introduced themselves to our mum and us. First impressions certainly do make a HUGE difference!!
Although she has only been in there for just over the month they have made her feel at home and seeing to her every need.
So far so good with Lavender House and their staff, our mum has improved day by day, peace of mind for us and happiness for our mum, what more do you need :-)

My mother was resident in Lavender House for four and a half years until her death in late May 2016. During this time whilst suffering from dementia she was treated with the utmost care and respectful consideration. I cannot thank the staff at Lavender House enough for the way they cared for my mother.
