Lincolnshire House Association is a recognised quality care provider situated in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire. Lincolnshire House provides care and support for adults with cerebral palsy and similar disabilities. Services include residential, respite care, independent living and a varied activities programme.

Lincolnshire House has transformed in recent years, moving away from the traditional residential set up which was opened in 1966. The change in the past few years has inspired people with disabilities to be more independent and take an active role in the management of the company.

Fund-raising has been at the heart of the community and funds have been raised to rebuild all the accommodation and activities.

Lincolnshire House offers a comprehensive range of activities for both residents and users from the local community. You can view the activities programme on the website and Connect to Support. They have a Rebound Therapy room with trained staff available and an iMuse room.

Reviews

9.8 Lincolnshire House has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.805)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Lincolnshire House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lincolnshire House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.805 for Lincolnshire House is calculated as follows: ( (183 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 226 Ratings = 4.805

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lincolnshire House is based on 13 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 7.4 positive Reviews (37 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 7.4 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.

I attend one day a week where I am well looked after by a carer who attends to my needs as I am in a wheelchair and have minor head injuries. I join in some of the activities which are varied and enjoy taking part. I am well looked after.

Our son has had a very good experience during his recent one week stay at this residence. He went on social outings to the local shops and pubs. He has a friend who is a resident and they were able to go out together and share meals in his friends flat. Staff were accommodating and respectful, and minor difficulties (eg. wifi stopped working) were resolved on our son speaking to the unit manager.

My brother has lived here for over 15 years and he is well looked after. He is happy and content and see's the other residents as family. Myself and small children visit as often as we can and have no complaints. We get invited to events and are looking forward to the forthcoming valentine's tea party. It is very nice to feel that my brother is happy, safe and looked after whilst I live so far away. I would recommend this care home to all.

Lincolnshire House is a wonderful place. My daughter has lived here for over 17 years. She wouldn't want to live anywhere else. All of her needs are met here, she is encouraged to achieve her full potential. She enjoys many activities including; karate, wheelchair football, education, trampolining, life skills and cooking. She tells everyone she wouldn't like to live anywhere else and that this is her home.

Lincolnshire House provides care for my daughter. She has cerebral palsy and is reliant on care in feeding, toileting, speech, etc etc. She is a very bright lady - but because of communication difficulties needs lot of help and stimulation for her mental needs. Lincolnshire House provides this by providing daily activities ranging from education; sports (bowling) hair/beauty therapy, cooking, music etc.

This is a wonderful place. My son attends day services and respite care here. He enjoys his time so much. The staff are very caring and treat him with respect. He is always eager to attend because of the activities he does and how well he is treated. Because of this, I am happy for him to attend. It gives me total peace of mind knowing he is safe, well cared for and happy.

My brother has been a resident at Lincolnshire House since it opened in 1966. The centre has evolved over those 50 years to become a home for the residents where they can take control of their lives. The support staff perform their jobs superbly and are considered friends by the residents. The centre management and care staff all contribute to a well run and happy environment.

On arrival my daughter was welcomed and immediately involved in the activity and disco in the hall with everybody else, she hadn't been for a year but she was remembered and made comfy with everybody else. She was extremely happy and before we left she was singing and dancing, this helps me to leave her. The bungalow room is en-suite and very clean, warm and cosy. Everybody is really caring and friendly. I have already booked for next year that's how happy we are and it helps me to go and have time for me knowing she is happy too.
