  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 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 4.75 for Annesley Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (19 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.75

    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.

Reviewer Connection to Annesley Lodge

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
  • Daughter-in-law of Resident/Service User

This care home is excellent and Mother's care is also excellent. The only thing is the activity worker is only part-time and there is no consistency of activities. The activities that do happen are good but often what is advertised is changed last minute or doesn't happen. This is not helpful if your memory is failing, but the home is like a hotel and the food is 5 star. I am totally happy with the decision of choosing this home and it is a pleasure to visit Mum there. The staff are wonderful.

Moved my mother-in-law to this care home really quickly and wasn't sure what to expect, but was very pleasantly surprised at the high level of service compared to the the care home we had moved her from.
Lovely good size rooms with en suite, extra bathrooms and toilets in hallways, proper hairdressing salon. Activities everyday. Food was brought out so the resident could view the food before choosing what they wanted and a good choice of quality food. Family welcome to eat with the family member. Lots of snacks and drinks throughout the day. Staff are lovely and a key worker is given to each resident. Nothing seems to be to much trouble. Thank god at last.
