Overview

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Gresham Lodge 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Gresham Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.644 for Gresham Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (139 Excellents x 5) + (55 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 202 Ratings = 4.644

  • 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 3.238 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Gresham Lodge is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 4.2 positive Reviews (21 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 4.2 Target = 0.238

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

7.9 Gresham Lodge has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.882) from 17 Reviews

Mother is well cared for.
All areas kept clean and food seems to be of good quality.
Would benefit with more staff on duty and more activities for the residents.

My Nanna has been to this home twice now and I wouldn't have her anywhere else.
Firstly and most importantly the staff are nothing less than fantastic in fact they're like family. Nothing is too much. They do my Nanna's nails, rub cream on her legs and when they can just sit with her and talk this makes her feel good.
The food is all homemade and very nice and I'm a chef so I can honestly say that.

My mum has been in this care home since February. We decided on this one because out of all those we visited this was the friendliest and felt very homely. My mum has settled in very well from the start. The care staff including managers/owners are very friendly and amazing with my mum she loves them. Its very clean and the meals are both varied and tasty having had a few meals there myself with mum. They have various activities and events going on each month. Also, a hairdresser that goes weekly. Without a doubt, I would recommend this home to everyone

First class care is provided here. The home is relatively small, with 21 residents and this enables a high degree of personal care to be provided with all of the staff and residents knowing each other.

My Mum has been in Gresham Lodge for 4 weeks. Her time there has been very good. She has been a resident since being discharged from hospital for rehabilitation. She has been well looked after and cared for. Each day she has improved more. The food is excellent with a varied selection daily. The staff are lovely and always have time for her. As a daughter, I was happy to leave her in their competent care.

Overall the level of care is to a high standard. The staff understand the fluctuating needs of my mother and respond to them accordingly. There are times when the staff are stretched to meet the level of care required, particularly if an emergency arises or when several service users require assistance at the same time. The menu is varied with snacks given throughout the day. Finding stimulating activities can be a problem due to lack of interest and physical capability of the service users.

Having got over the shock of having to put Dad into a care home, we were advised on Gresham Lodge. Dad went in from the hospital and after a shaky start he has picked up. The staff are really good and Dad is eating better. Haven't rated value for money because I believe all care homes are overpriced and shouldn't be allowed to charge such high prices. This care home is small, so suits us as it's more personal.
