Situated on the outskirts of Mansfield, Normanton Lodge has been providing high quality care since 1971. A fine period building, the original home has been modified and extended sympathetically so that it can now offer accommodation for up to 43 residents. The home aims to provide a caring and comfortable environment, whilst recognising that everyone is an individual with their own needs, wishes and interests. Getting to the home is easy as it has excellent access to both the M1 and the A38 and is only a few hundred yards from all the amenities offered by the East Midlands Designer Outlet shopping centre and food court.

Normanton Lodge has a dedicated staff team. They are committed to making everyone’s time at the home as happy as possible, and the residents’ wellbeing is their top priority. All the care staff have considerable experience in providing excellent care, no matter what the level of need, and they always complement a professional attitude with warmth and compassion so that people are looked after with dignity and respect.

Part of recognising everyone as an individual is working out exactly what care is right for them. The staff take time to talk to residents, and their families, in order to create a personalised care plan that reflects not only their needs but also their personality and lifestyle. Staff regularly review these plans to ensure that all the residents are receiving the care that they need, want and deserve.

6.2 Normanton Lodge has a Review Score of 6.2 (6.246)

The Review Score of 6.2 (maximum of 10) for Normanton Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Normanton Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.9 out of 5 from 3 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 4.321 for Normanton Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (17 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 28 Ratings = 4.321

  • 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 1.925 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Normanton Lodge is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5 then divided by 2 = 1.750

    2. Target of 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8.6 Target = 0.349 , then divided by 2 = 0.175

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

Reviewer Connection to Normanton Lodge

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User

My mother said today "It's nice here isn't it?" All staff seem to know individual residents and what they need. I don't usually visit at meal times to see food but kitchen staff always give me anything I ask for if I go to door. Sometimes there are not enough staff- if there are only three on shift and two are taking resident to loo/bed etc. The remaining one cannot be everywhere to make sure the more confused residents are OK. Staff I have seen mostly work as a team and if they are doing paperwork will jump up and say "I'll do that".

A well organised home with very caring staff who respect the resident's needs. An older property whose main rooms have been recently refurbished giving a light and modern feel. I feel very confident that my mother who suffers from dementia is well looked after and safe at Normanton Lodge. There are regular entertainment activities provided plus hairdresser, chiropodist and doctor/nurse visits.

My mum has been a resident in Normanton Lodge for seventeen months. She is really happy and this is because of the amazing staff, who genuinely care for the residents. The standard of care is excellent and nothing is too much trouble. I visit at least three times a week and have always been welcomed and am still overwhelmed by the friendliness and hard work of the staff. The activities and entertainment for the residents is also brilliant, from singers, bingo and exercises to music to hand massages. Cleanliness and food standards are also extremely high. I would highly recommend everything about the home.
