The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for The Laurels & Pine Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 36 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Laurels & Pine Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 19 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 4.286 for The Laurels & Pine Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (171 Excellents x 5) + (193 Goods x 4) + (52 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 416 Ratings = 4.286

  • 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 The Laurels & Pine Lodge is based on 19 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 11 positive Reviews (55 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 19 Reviews ÷ 11 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.

I found the staff to know all about my friend, his likes and dislikes, apart from the obvious medical residents are treated like human beings. Individual care not just group care. Very clean and no smell, good choice of food shown at meal times and alcohol allowed.
I've been to several homes over time and this one really considers the resident's requirements. There is the main unit and 'The Pines' for those with dementia.

The staff always greet with a smile and offer of tea/coffee and biscuit. Mum is always dressed and clean and tidy. She often has some pretty nail varnish to match her clothes. I usually phone ahead so that she can be moved to a quiet room when we arrive. Mum does not say much now and whispers and it is easier to communicate without the noise from the main area.
The staff treat the residents carefully even the rather difficult ones and are always there to clear away and clean up. When residents have an embarassing moment or are taken ill, often screens are put round them to protect their privacy.

My mother has been a resident in both The Laurels & Pine Lodge for just over a year. She suffers from advanced dementia and is, therefore, vulnerable. Throughout her time there, she has been treated with the utmost care and compassion. I have always found the staff to be warm and friendly whenever I visit. In general, I feel my mother enjoys very good care. Only negatives have been that she has often been wearing others clothing (I know this is the subject of review and resolution).

Overall the care in place is of a good standard. The staff are always welcoming and polite when we visit.
The home has upgraded furniture on the ground floor, which has made the rooms more pleasant to sit and meet residents.
Cleaning sometimes on the carpet is not thorough, but that maybe due to short staff or busy with residents.
It would be good practice if the review of the care plan with relatives is more specific with times and dates, and could email be used, particularly if relatives live away from the care home?

Since my mother moved to this new home, we have all been treated with courtesy by professional, caring staff at all levels. From management to auxiliary level. Even though my mother is bed bound and unable to participate in activities, she is always considered for light therapy, music and CD and is read to. She is also included with holy communion and regularly seen by visiting chaplaincy staff and other services as appropriate. We are always advised of changes in her condition or interventions by the medical team and generally supported as part of mum's excellent care and seamfree transition from her previous home. Well done.

Mother spent nearly 2 months here over December and January while we were on holiday and she was well looked after and enjoyed the friendly staff and the care she was given. There was a time when we could not visit due to an infection that could have caused problems if we had, but with the measures put in place, mother did not become infected. Also, she was well looked after and the Christmas period was very well put together.
The bedrooms are a little small and are in need of some uplifting.

Mum has lived here for 18 months now, and if I'm being honest it's not where I saw her spending her final years, BUT in saying that I am so pleased we chose The Laurels. Mum has made friends and seems happy enough. She enjoys the musical entertainment the most. All of the staff are just so lovely, kind and friendly, not only to mum but to any members of the family that visit mum. It puts my mind at rest that she is definitely well looked after.

Staff always polite and friendly and happy to accommodate.

Of numerous care homes I audited prior to my mother's placement, the Laurels was by far the best overall care home.

Hollie Cobbett-Payne, Marketing Coordinator at The Laurels & Pine Lodge responded to this review on 08 Mar 2017:

Hi Martyn,

Thank you very much for your kind review, I hope your mother continues to enjoy her life at The Laurels! All of our rooms come with en-suite facilities and we are continuing to make sure The Laurels & Pine Lodge is decorated to a high standard.

Thanks again.
Hartford Care Team

My mother has been a resident for around 5 years now. She views the home as her real home now and has developed a sense of community and has joined in with activities. The home has been welcoming and supportive towards my father who visits daily.
The Laurels has improved my parent's quality of life.

My grandad has been in another home and didn't settle there. Since he has been at the Laurels & Pine Lodge, he has made friends and socialises with the other residents & staff. He enjoys joining in with the activities and says that the food is very good.
It is a great relief that he is being so well looked after. It has taken a lot of pressure off of the family.

Mother has been at the Laurels for nine months and has been happy. Her health is not so good now, but all the staff have risen to the challenge of providing the right care for mother's extra needs. Mother has put weight on, which must speak well of the catering. All the staff and I do mean all the staff, are genuinely friendly and helpful. The interaction is natural, jovial and genuine, while always respecting the needs and wants of their residents. They have good activities, with quizzes, games, craft, trips out and entertainers that come into the home. The Laurels has had a makeover that has been carried out sympathetically, making it look modern, while not losing that homely feel. That point is important, Homely! Any concerns that you always have when deciding on when and where your relative will be looked after, has been totally dispelled. We are kept well informed and can now relax knowing that mother is being well looked after in a friendly and homely environment.

The Laurels has a pleasant and personal feel to it and the rooms are comfortable and neutral. My dad has been a resident for some months now and his needs are well cared for. The staff are patient and kind to dad (and to me) and I appreciate this. I would recommend this home to other families.

My husband enjoys going to this Day Centre three times a week. The staff are very cheerful and welcoming. He has coffee on arrival and a three-course meal at lunch time which he always says is delicious, especially the soup! There is entertainment which he can join in if he wants to. I feel that he is very safe and well looked after here and the homely atmosphere suits him.

Based on my first initial visit I do not feel I am in a position to pass comment on many of the ratings. I can however, say that we were made to feel welcome and were greeted and questioned twice about who we were - good security.
The home felt friendly but a little cramped and tired, I don't know the comparative cost of care but in comparison, another care centre in Poole has a much larger communal area although building (outside) in general state of repair.

My uncle spent the last few years of his life at The Laurels and was very well looked after. The staff were very caring. When my uncle arrived at The Laurels he was very underweight but within a matter of months he gained weight and looked much healthier and happier. It was a comfort to me that my uncle was in such capable hands.
