Reviews

8.5 Woodlea Care Home has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.538)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Woodlea Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Woodlea Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 4 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 4.2 for Woodlea Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (21 Excellents x 5) + (30 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.2

  • 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 4.338 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Woodlea Care Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target = 0.588

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

In my opinion, the staff Woodlea are excellent. The care and support provided to my mother in law following various admissions to hospital has been excellent. Nothing is ever too much trouble. The staff are kind and cheerful very knowledgeable about mums needs- with the exception of technical/medical intervention I feel the care they provide often surpasses that of the care received in NHS by mum. Mum loves being in Woodlea I am so pleased she was able to move there from her previous home.

My mother is very happy after her first four months in this home. Her first room was not good but her new room is brilliant, especially as we are now getting it sorted to her taste with more of her personal items. The gardens are all in need of some TLC but no doubt this will happen as the new owners are improving things throughout the home. As has been pointed out recently, we are paying over the odds to help fund their underpayments by local councils/governments.

My father has been a resident at Woodlea for over two years. He is very happy and settled there and I am very pleased with the level of care he gets. The manager Amanda and all the staff are so patient and caring. Nothing is too much trouble for them. It is a very homely environment and I am so glad we chose Woodlea for him.

Short stay two weeks after hospital treatment, cannot speak too highly of the staff. I have watched the patience, tolerance and kindness shown to all residents regardless. How they keep it up is beyond me. I would never keep my cool. All facilities are excellent. All sorts of activities. I miss a poetry discussion. Took part in bingo!! musical party afternoon, ball games on carpets in the lounge etc. I would have no hesitation in coming back.
