Reviews

7.9 Barchester Sherwood Lodge Care Home has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.898)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Sherwood Lodge Care Home 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Sherwood Lodge Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.444 for Barchester Sherwood Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (42 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.444

  • 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 3.454 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Sherwood Lodge Care Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 9.8 Target = 0.204

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

My mother is very happy living at Sherwood Lodge.
She is well looked after and well fed.
Since the new manager took over, the quality and standards at Sherwood Lodge have improved. He is very approachable and sorts any minor problems out swiftly. The staff are friendly and caring.

What can I say, the staff at Sherwood Lodge go far and beyond what they call "just doing our job". They are professional, caring and made Mum feel like she was at home.
Sadly, Mum passed away this week, both my sister and I stayed with her at the Lodge for two days where they gave us a bed, fed us and gave us endless cups of tea and comfort. They gave mum the dignity she deserved and she was particularly fond of a senior carer (who came in on her day off to see mum as she was worried about her), she called her "my girl"and another male senior carer. They couldn't have done anymore and supported both my sister and myself throughout. They really go the extra mile. We will always be forever grateful for them helping us through a very difficult time it would have been much worse without them.

My husband is settled at Sherwood Lodge and I am satisfied with the care he is receiving. The care staff are all excellent and work over and above the call of duty for the individual residents. Along with others, my husband can be awkward and behave out of character, but the staff handle him with care and dignity. Individual needs are always recognised.

Sherwood Lodge is a lovely care home, with lovely caring and patient staff. My mother who has dementia has been a resident now for two years and always says, "it's a good place" which always makes us as a family reassured that she is happy and contented and in return we are happy and contented knowing she is being cared for in a lovely environment with kind staff who will go that extra mile. Food is cooked and presented to a very high nutritious standard and visitors can eat with their relative if required. The activities they provide are outstanding and stimulating and I wouldn't hesitate in choosing this home for another relative.
