Reviews

8.6 Primrose Lodge Weymouth has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.608)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Primrose Lodge Weymouth 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 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Primrose Lodge Weymouth 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 4.713 for Primrose Lodge Weymouth is calculated as follows: ( (79 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 108 Ratings = 4.713

  • 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 3.895 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Primrose Lodge Weymouth 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 7.6 Target = 0.395

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

My mother's arrival to Primrose Lodge was beautifully handled.
Prior to her arrival, we were able to arrange her room with home comforts; painting, photos, bed linen and clothes plus a few items of furniture with the kind help of the caretaker, so as to ease the transition.
All the while the staff were kind and helpful and cheerfully attended to any request.
There are activities where guests are encouraged to join in or not, whichever suits the individual.
Fresh fruit and a lovely sweet shop add to the pleasant feeling of comfort.
As a visitor, the staff are always welcoming and the whole house appears fresh, lively and fragrantly clean no matter what time of day one turns up for a visit.
My mother has resided here since 12th January 2017 and has settled in well, greatly aided by the managers kind acceptance of mothers little dog who enjoys lovely kind attendance from the staff who help mother with her on a daily basis.

I find this care home for my father really great, staff are kind, considerate and nothing is too much trouble. Food is very good and the rooms are lovely. Lots of activities and superb service for all elderly people, I was worried when my father went to the home, but even my worst fears have been completely dispelled.

I feel very happy to know that my Mother is being cared for in such a lovely care home with a lovely family atmosphere. Management and staff are all very caring and helpful. When we were looking for a care home for my Mum we were recommended Primrose Lodge by a friend and at our first visit I knew this was the right place for her.

Primrose Lodge is a caring, friendly and professionally managed care home. The management and staff encourage the family and friends to play an active roe in the wellbeing and social aspects of residents. To this end it has a very vibrant family and friends association that among other things raises funds that directly go towards the residents social programmes. There is always a cheerful atmosphere amongst the whole staff despite the pressure they face. The residents are always immaculately dressed and groomed and this is entirely due to care given by the staff. It may not have all the trappings of a five star hotel but it delivers five star care to its residents.

My mother spent the last three years of her life at Primrose Lodge, she was happy there, very well cared for and when she was up to it enjoyed the little trips out. She looked forward to the activities which were available to her and getting her hair done by the visiting hairdresser. Towards the end of her life when she became more difficult to look after, the staff were caring and compassionate and always kept my sister and myself informed. I would happily recommend Primrose Lodge to anyone looking for a care home for a loved one.

I couldn't be happier or as at ease with the care and consideration and support dad has received since he first started living at Primrose Lodge, July 2015. All the staff are dedicated to the task at hand and create as far as is practicable a family atmosphere. Lots of activities and trips out create a social and sociable atmosphere.
