The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Danmor Lodge Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Danmor Lodge Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.802 for Danmor Lodge Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (77 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.802

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Danmor Lodge Ltd is based on 8 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 5 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 5 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.

My father who is 94 years old and has vascular dementia, always tells me, without me asking him, that he loves being at Danmor Lodge. He says everyone is very jovial and there is always something going on.
For someone with dementia, I find it amazing that he says this. Every time my family visit, he says, "I love it here and the food is good". Not many homes have homemade cakes every day and not many offer a cup of tea or coffee whenever you visit. Danmor does.
The activities ladies work hard each day to keep the residents entertained. My father always looks spotless and smart. The rooms are clean, and everywhere is free from the smell of urine. All the staff are dedicated to their work, they are wonderful. Danmor Lodge is a great find, and as a family, we are so grateful my father is living in such a warm and homely environment.

We were lucky a room was available at Danmor Lodge Ltd, as my mother suddenly needed residential care. Fortunately, some friends had already investigated care homes in Weymouth for their mother, so we knew Danmor Lodge Ltd, to be a good home.
Well done to the manager and the staff who provide a splendid home from home for my mother and the other residents.

A friendly, clean, comfortable home with caring staff, excellent food - with several choices for each meal - and a range of activities and outings to suit all residents. Nothing is too much trouble, visitors are always made very welcome and there are no restrictions on visiting times. There is sufficient staff to give all residents the time/care they require.
My mum is extremely happy there and cannot speak highly enough of the staff, this includes office staff too who are always available to talk over any issues. This is my Mums' second home - the first closed down - and I wish I'd found this one first!

The staff at Danmor Lodge are extremely conscientious and caring and they work very hard to ensure that the needs of the residents are met. The rooms are kept very clean and tidy and the food is varied and of a high standard. I would not hesitate to recommend this care home to anyone as I cannot find fault with it.

Thank you for your comments.

Before my wife came to stay permanently at Danmoor Lodge she had a period of respite care there, and I also used the facility for some day time only respite care. In all my dealings with the management and staff, I have been treated with great courtesy, compassion and professionalism. Indeed compared with a number of other homes where my wife has stayed for respite, all aspects of their service had been exemplary. They not only provide a warm, friendly caring environment but also a good deal of interesting activities to keep residents minds and bodies active. It does not have the slick appearance of some of the modern purpose built homes, but rather creates the atmosphere of a large family home, relaxed and welcoming, but still mindful of the need for careful attention to all the requirements of health and the safety of some of the most vulnerable people in society.

My mother has been a resident of Danmor Lodge since December 2013 and seems happy and settled there. The home has a homely feel and this is why I chose Danmor. The staff are on the whole excellent as is the standard of food. Before placing my mother in Danmor Lodge I visited most of the homes locally and decided this was the best one for her. I visit Danmor daily and I am always made to feel welcome there.

On the first visit to view Danmoor Lodge, we were made very welcome by all staff and had a complete tour. We were shown my aunt's potential room which was spacious, well equipped and with a bathroom. My Aunt who has severe dementia settled in very quickly and we have not looked back since. Whenever we visit (always unannounced) my aunt is in the lounge well dressed and smart. The attention she receives is first class and time is taken to talk to her and to encourage her to fully participate in activities as much as she is able. The care when feeding her is always patient and gentle and the staff all seem to go the extra mile to make her life comfortable. I would thoroughly recommend Danmoor to anyone who is seeking a caring home for a relative which you can trust at all levels.

Susan Hasler, Director at Danmor Lodge Ltd responded to this review on 15 Feb 2017:

Thank you for your comments, it helps staff to know they are doing a good job.

My father, who has vascular dementia, moved into Danmor Lodge in August this year. Within a week he had settled in, telling us as a family, how much he liked where he was. This was without prompting and he still tells us how lucky he is to be living there.
The staff are so kind and attentive, caring and patient. My father is always dressed immaculately, with ironed shirts! (In his previous home in Dorchester, his clothes were not ironed).
The food is excellent, home-made cakes every day. The ladies who do the activities are wonderful. We are so lucky to have found this amazing home, my father is 94 and we feel he will enjoy the remaining time here in Danmor Lodge.
