Reviews

9.9 Lifestyles has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.853)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Lifestyles 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lifestyles in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.853 for Lifestyles is calculated as follows: ( (122 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.853

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lifestyles is based on 5 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 3.8 positive Reviews (19 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 3.8 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.

My uncle is very happy and content at Lifestyles. The staff are welcoming and friendly for him and myself. The activities are all well designed and he loves the food and everything about the place. Each day is easy going for him and that's what he enjoys so the place suits him to perfection.

Thanks so much, may their happiness and safety long continue in their own homes.

The staff are all really extremely good at listening to you and you always get really good advice that is relevant. They find us ways of mixing in with the community and take me out in the wheelchair if the weather is good.
They're helping me to eat healthily and diet as I'm far too big but in a nice way.
I really like living here, it's my home. My family are always welcome and can ask the manager anything they like about how I' getting on. She's fantastic.

We really do appreciate the wonderful feedback and will continue to strive to maintain great standards for all our residents.

The staff made an unexpected emergency easy to cope with. They are all helpful and welcoming, extremely supportive and understanding. They are all currently enabling my brother to achieve a level of independence he has not had for a long time. Well done team.

Many thanks for the review, may our care continue with purity and humility to support everyone.

Although you don't get the WOW factor when walking into the home, you do get the feeling that everyone is happy and well looked after. My brother has been in care for many years and since been at Lifestyles, he is happier, less stressed, calmer in every way and the manager is the most caring and lovely person who gives 100%. She really does care about all the residents.

My son has lived at Lifestyles for a number of years and regards it as his home. My son is treated as a family member rather than a statistic and is given advice by management and staff. I cannot speak too highly of them. For the last few years, my wife and family along with local residents have attended social events at Lifestyles organised by the staff and residents. A very caring attitude is maintained at all times.

One of the best care homes in the York area. The house is fully decorated with our choice. Bedrooms great sizes, painted our own colour. Food is brilliant, great choices, big meals. You have one of the best managers in this care home. Staff are brilliant too, always there for you, day and night. I advise people to come and have a good life here. Please, come and we will show you what we mean about the staff, food, managers and residents.

I love it here as it is an excellent home, in easy reach of town, and is second to none. The best care home that I have lived in. The food is excellent and I can say that I help every week to do the food shopping with another resident.
The staff and management and the rest in the business who are always there if you need them. I have a very nice room at the top of the house and it is a nice quiet part in the attic.

I have a family member in this home and know they are 100% happy and well cared for here the whole staff team are amazing! I would highly recommend this home to anybody for their family or friends, the home is always very clean and the food is lovely. I have always enjoyed the annual summer bbq and Christmas party they do for family and friends. It is very open door I have always been welcomed with open arms. I feel everybody's needs are catered for extremely well and the residents are put first and foremost. I would be more than happy if I needed to have any other family member placed in Lifestyles. I have also spoken to a few other people whose family members are in Lifestyles and never heard a bad word said. I feel the manager goes above and beyond what is needed to care for all and all the staff have seemed to be hugely competent and well trained when speaking to other residents they all seem to be very happy. I am pleased my family member is in here and hope they are for many years to come.
