Reviews

8.8 Northlands House Care Home has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.789)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Northlands House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Northlands House 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 6 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 4.492 for Northlands House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (73 Excellents x 5) + (51 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.492

  • 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 4.297 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Northlands House Care Home is based on 6 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 20.2 positive Reviews (101 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 20.2 Target = 0.297

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

My mother has been in with Northlands House for just over one year (4/4/16) and within this time I can say we have been happy with 70% of the service.
There are some immediate issues but these can be quickly resolved.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear about your positive experience and appreciate your comments of our home and will share your comments with the home’s manager.

My aunt is very happy at Northlands. Her carers are lovely, very caring and passionate about their work.
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff.
There is lots to do, always an activity going on in the home.
I worried about her when she first went to live there, but actually it is the best thing we ever did for her because she has lots of company, is never lonely and she is safe and very well looked after.

Everything is quite good as you would expect from a large organisation. Car parking is poor as with the lifts, but on the whole, the home is good.

I have been here since May. My room is very comfortable. Carers are very good - look after me well. I have MS and need a lot of help. Food is plentiful but could be more varied and better cooked.

Dad has been in the home for 20 months now. I was upset that he could no longer live at home, but the staff here have always been very friendly and caring towards him - they don't just provide the necessary care, but often chat and have a joke with him, which we both appreciate. There is a choice of menu each day for set meals, and a tea trolley visits each room morning and afternoon, so there is plenty to eat. Staff are on the ball with Dad's medication and have referred him to the local doctor if there are any problems. There are also planned activities each afternoon, including games, quizzes and singers - I was pleasantly surprised just how good they are! The rooms are cleaned regularly and are attractively decorated. I would definitely recommend this home to others.

Thank you for your review. So glad that your dad has settled and that you have peace of mind knowing that he is well cared for.

Mum was well-looked after and enjoyed the food and drink. Bingo was her favourite activity and cheese and wine too. Sometimes she moaned about being left on the toilet too long. Housekeeping looked after her very well and her clothes had a lovely fragrance.

Thank you for your review. I'm so glad to hear that your mum was well looked after in our care and that she enjoyed the food and drink and her games of bingo.

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. We are pleased to hear about your positive experience and appreciate your comments about our home and will share your comments with the home’s manager. The Bupa Customer Care Team.

My cousin had to come and stay at Northlands House Care Home while my aunty was in a hospital. I had to write to you to let you know how impressed we all were with the whole experience. The room was spotless the food was fantastic but most of all every member of staff we approached for anything, we were greeted with kindness and professionalism, experience and care. The manager couldn't be more helpful. There is also so much to do for the clients. The improvement of speech and mobility when my cousin left was enormous.

I find this a fantastic environment here - it hits you directly when you come in the front door. You are made to feel welcome and that is very important to me. I really like it that the receptionist and the customer adviser take the time to talk to me. Everybody I've met here are very caring and want to be personally involved with me. My wife has now settled very well in the home.
