Reviews

8.9 Woodbridge Lodge has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.895)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Woodbridge Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.1 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Woodbridge Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 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 4.114 for Woodbridge Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (21 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 70 Ratings = 4.114

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.781 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Woodbridge Lodge is based on 5 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 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.781

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

Woodbridge Lodge has recently had a bit of a facelift. New flooring decoration etc. The home looks more pleasing to the eye when entering. The staff are always friendly when I visit and information sent to me by email of any up and coming events etc.

My father moved into Woodbridge Lodge just over 3 months ago and in that short time, he has changed from a lonely disgruntled old man to a content, happy gentleman. He is a pleasure to visit and all the staff welcome members of the family at all times of the day. Dad has rekindled his love of music by playing piano for everyone and recently celebrated his 94th birthday with all his new friends there. He's fitter, healthier and happier - so I'm happier too!

I cannot praise Woodbridge Lodge highly enough. My mother has been a resident for the past three (3) years. She initially came to the home for respite care and was so happy we made arrangements for her to stay permanently. The home is situated in an period property and it is partly down to this that it provides a "cosy" atmosphere, with all the squeaks and friendly noises. I mention this as my mother is not a lover of the hotel style modern homes. The staff provide amazing care. Recently my mother was taken to hospital, due to suffering an illness, and as I live 200 miles away staff went with her to hospital and contacted me as soon as the ambulance had left to inform me of the situation. Further the staff member who went with her also contacted me with an update. Again I mention this as an example of the care for not just the residents but their families as well. As with other reviews the grounds are lovely and well maintained.
