The Woodlands Care Home provides specialist residential service for adult men-only, offering learning disability residential care for 6 men. Service users typically have a learning disability along with complex co-morbid conditions such as personality disorder and mental health problems, and they may also have a forensic past.

The service at The Woodlands Learning Disability Care Home is designed for those individuals who require a high level of support and supervision in a community setting, often as part of a care pathway when stepping down from secure unit or hospital care. Alternatively, adults living within the Woodlands care home may not be able to be adequately provided in a supported living service due to the complexity of their problems, or their challenging behaviours.

The aim of the service is to prepare individuals for living more independently through a programme of active community engagement, developing meaningful social networks, managing risk and developing robust coping strategies.

The care unit is staffed 24 hours a day by a dedicated team of support workers. However, there is no nursing service on site but the Woodlands Care Home forms a key part of the learning disability care pathway with The Woodhouse Hospital service at Cheadle which is just 20 minutes away.

The care home is registered with the Care Quality Commission and able to accept learning disabled adult men who have been detained under the Mental Health Act (1983).

Reviews

8.7 The Woodlands Care Home has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.666)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for The Woodlands Care Home 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 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Woodlands Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 1 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 4.833 for The Woodlands Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 3.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Woodlands Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 1.2 positive Reviews (6 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 1.2 Target = 0.833

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