Reviews

6.7 Woodthorne Care Home has a Review Score of 6.7 (6.733)

The Review Score of 6.7 (maximum of 10) for Woodthorne Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Woodthorne Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.9 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.87 for Woodthorne Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 23 Ratings = 4.87

  • 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 1.863 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Woodthorne Care Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25 then divided by 2 = 1.625

    2. Target of 4.2 positive Reviews (21 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 4.2 Target = 0.476 , then divided by 2 = 0.238

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

After reaching the decision to move my dad into a care home, we as a family, were quite anxious about finding the right place for him. We stumbled across Woodthorne while searching on the Internet. I had called a few homes by this point and was getting quite frustrated. When I rang I found the staff were surprisingly friendly and helpful. We visited the next day and the staff were just as friendly in person, the residents seemed happy and content and the whole place had a homely feel to it. Staff were more than happy to chat with us and we stayed for a couple of hours.

My dad has been in the home for a few weeks now, he has settled in really well. He is much happier in himself and most definitely calmer. His appetite is much better now and he clearly enjoys the meals provided there. Staff are all lovely, always keeping us informed and making us feel welcome. I am really pleased we stumbled across Woodthorne, it is a lovely place with a real homely feel and great staff.

On behalf of myself and my partner, we would like to say how much care and attention was given during my mother in law's time here as a resident. The care and dedication was so wonderful and go out of their way to make the residents, including us as relatives, so welcomed and go out of their way, including right up until the very end of her death. They will sit in with the residents until the relatives arrive, keep you always informed, offer you a drink, even at the most awful time of a relative's death, the carers are still dedicated with the long term dedication with that resident. The respect and dedication given is outstanding, thanks again...always be truly grateful!!....you all deserve an award!

Kind regards
