Nesfield Lodge, Leeds, West Yorkshire

Nesfield Lodge is a friendly and familiar home located close to Leeds, that is setting standards across the Orchard group.

The home has seen its staff recognised in internal awards and is one of the pioneering homes that are part of the HenPower hen-keeping programme.

HenPower is an inspiring project linking older people with hens to combat social isolation and it is supported by older people’s charity Equal Arts. Combining hen keeping with hen-related arts activities, there has been a positive impact from the hens’ presence, giving additional focus and activity to many of the residents in the home.

The home has en-suite rooms, all decorated to high standards, with modern furnishings and fittings. A bright, communal lounge gives direct access to the garden, while a quiet reminiscence room, decorated in a 1940s theme, allows for more contemplative time.

There is a strong relationship with local schools and community groups, ensuring the residents are as active and engaged as possible, with an activity coordinator in the home who leads a varied and daily changing programme of events and one to one activity.

Reviews

8.7 Nesfield Lodge has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.705)

The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Nesfield Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Nesfield Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.864 for Nesfield Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (114 Excellents x 5) + (18 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.864

  • 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 3.841 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Nesfield Lodge is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target = 0.341

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

Ten weeks ago I had to make the heartbreaking decision for my mum to go into a care home. I chose Nesfield Lodge and I am so very glad I did. The staff are lovely - kind and friendly and treat mum with the utmost dignity. The place is warm and clean, the food excellent and the care outstanding. Staff were quick to notice mum was not well and had a GP to her within two hours. The care plan for mum is detailed and I am involved at all stages of her care and comfort. Knowing that mum is in a safe, kind place has made my decision so much easier.

Dad was in Nesfield Lodge for over two years. We found staff lovely, caring and friendly. They work hard and care for all the residents to a high standard. Dad has dementia and can be challenging but the staff were always great with him. He always looked smart and clean and loved the garden and hens. He would still be there now if he hadn't of fallen and broke his hip whilst in hospital. We would recommend Nesfield Lodge to anybody needing a care home.

Many thanks for taking the time to write a positive review for our home, Nesfield Lodge. All feedback is greatly appreciated and I will be sure to pass your comments onto the team, they will be very pleased. We strive to provide a high standard of care for all of our residents and I am pleased to read that you found this for your dad while he was at our home.

The staff at Nesfield Lodge are caring, compassionate and proactive. They will insist on what is right and necessary for residents from community nursing teams and Gp's. Our relative was safe in their care. However, there were significant constraints when community services were required and when non-prescription treatments were required as they were unavailable- need urgent review.

Whenever I visit the home I receive a friendly welcome from all staff - information given is required regarding residents, staff always helpful and treat all residents equally, unless resident isn't in the right mood. He is always well dressed and looking smart, clean clothes, sometimes wearing a tie, laundry service is very good - items usually hung in the wardrobe. Food and variety of food really good. Help given again if required, not pushed or forced to eat of they don't want it. Dining and lounge area clean and comfortable - looking very smart after the decorating, individual rooms excellent.

We as a family are now happy to leave her knowing she is well looked after and treated with dignity and respect and has the best possible care for her condition.

My mum has dementia. I didn't want to put her in a home, but Nesfield Lodge has really improved my mums quality of life, the staff and management really are good to her and it is the best thing myself and family could have done.
