The Langston, Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire

The Langston was built by the Earl of Ducie as a hunting lodge with stabling for forty horses in the 1870s. It was built using stone from the private quarry of his father in law, Squire Langston. It later became a popular hotel.

In 1985 it was turned into a residential home. The property was chosen not only for its suitability in having wide corridors and no steps within the building, but also for its beautiful setting with lovely views over the Cotswolds in all directions.

The Langston Nursiing Home was awarded the rating of 'Good' in every area that was inspected by the CQC and the overall rating awarded following the inspection was 'Good'.

The rooms are spacious and warmly decorated to make the residents feel at home. High-quality care from well-trained staff are offered, giving residents the opportunity to make their own choices and live as independently as possible in a safe environment.

Reviews

9.6 The Langston has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.581)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for The Langston 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 The Langston in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 12 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 4.581 for The Langston is calculated as follows: ( (118 Excellents x 5) + (77 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 198 Ratings = 4.581

  • 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 The Langston is based on 12 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 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 7.2 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 have been extremely grateful for the care given to my husband. The staff are caring and polite, even when he displays challenging behaviour.
During a recent acute illness, the professional expertise of the nursing staff meant that he could be cared for at the home, avoiding an admission to hospital which would have been distressing for him.

Very pleasant treatment whatever time of the day I call to see my wife. All the staff are very obliging and always try to help by taking my wife to her room where I can play music for 2 - 3 hours.
All rooms, corridors and lavatories are very clean at all times.
I always get well treated by everyone in the office, Orangerie and gardens are always well kept and seasonal plants used to suit.

While visiting several nursing care homes in our local area on behalf of my twin brother last year, some were very palatial but with no heart to them. Until we visited The Langston and were shown around the home by the manager. She visited my brother in hospital and agreed to accept him at The Langston.
All the staff are truly wonderful and very caring, it is a great relief to know he is very well cared for.
We really have struck gold in discovering a home with a great heart.

Please note I am responsible for my son, as he cannot communicate. My son became a resident on 7th March. It was very traumatic with the change over from the hospital to the home because he picked up infections. However the staff and all the carers were very attentive and so patient with him. The care is excellent and he communicates when given a command but cannot speak. Wonderful home, just one big family.

My mother has been a resident for 4 years and we as a family are delighted with the care she gets. 'The Langston' is a very well run home with excellent senior staff and carers. whenever any of us go, we always find it to be in good order and no 'wee' smell either which is a very positive sign of cleanliness. My mother is always looking good and is obviously content and happy to be there. The staff are attentive and kind and there is an excellent activities lady which gives the home an overall good feeling of care and thoughtfulness for it's residents. Thoroughly recommended.
