Reviews

9.6 Woodlands Manor EMI Care Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.568)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Woodlands Manor EMI Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Woodlands Manor EMI Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.568 for Woodlands Manor EMI Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (59 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.568

  • 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 Woodlands Manor EMI Care Home is based on 8 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 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 5.4 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.

My grandfather was at Woodlands Manor for a number of years. My grandfather suffered from dementia. It was very hard for us to acknowledge and understand what was happening to him. The staff at Woodlands Manor were very understanding with us. They always updated us with his care and alway looked smart. The laundry lady always told us if he needed anything, just ask. My grandfather also told us how he enjoyed the food. The care staff couldn't have offered any better care. He could be challenging at times but they showed excellent skills with him when he was. Sadly my grandfather passed away this year. My grandfather was taken to the hospital and there was nothing they could do. I don't know how they did it but all the staff at Woodlands got him home as fast as they could so he was back in his own bed. They got district nurses to come and help that night so he wasn't in any pain or agitated. I know my grandfather couldn't have been more peaceful the last days of his life and happy.

I often visited my sister when she lived at Woodlands Manor. The staff were always polite and respectful. I feel that my sister and the other residents were treated with the utmost dignity. I witnessed them always laughing with staff. On a couple of occasions, I even witnessed Janet the cleaner getting them up and dancing with them. When my sister became very poorly the staff were training to do GSF. We had regular meetings about this. I can't express enough the impact it had on my sister in her final days. She was dignified loved pain free and passed away peacefully with us all around her at Woodlands Manor. The care and support they gave us was way beyond exceptional we can't thank them enough.

My husband has been a resident at this home since April 2016.
Few teething problems to start with but all ironed out very quickly.
Very pleasant and caring staff, always showing great respect for residents and family members. Staff always cheerful.

Kayleigh Wray, Administrator at Woodlands Manor EMI Care Home responded to this review on 10 Mar 2017:

Good Afternoon, thank you very much for your lovely review, very much appreciated

My mother has been resident here for almost a year. She has vascular dementia which is getting worse. Prior to entering Woodlands Manor, she was becoming gradually more insular and avoiding people. When my father died, I moved in with her as a full-time carer, his death caused a huge decline in her mental health to a point where she forgot him altogether, she became more frustrated with everyday tasks and eventually became quite violent, forcing a move to residential care.
When she moved into Woodlands for a few weeks respite while awaiting assessment, she started to come out of her shell. The staff were stimulating her interest in other people, she was in a caring and socially acceptable (to her) 'hotel' with minimal need to go home (her dementia had taken her back 60 years to her parents' house).
She is quite happy now, being looked after hand and foot, with active social interaction, good food and health care and a stable staffing structure without too much change.
