Reviews

8.4 Berkeley Lodge Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.373)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Berkeley Lodge Nursing Home 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Berkeley Lodge Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.642 for Berkeley Lodge Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 81 Ratings = 4.642

  • 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 3.731 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Berkeley Lodge Nursing Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.231

  • 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-in-Law has been a resident at Berkeley Lodge Nursing Home for 18 months approximately. As we live in London, we only manage to get to the home on an ad-hoc basis. What I felt comfortable about was that we could always just turn up at any given time and were always greeted by a friendly face on reception.
Our Mother has dementia and requires 24/7 care. We could not provide this but the care she gets in this care home is of a very high standard. She is always spotlessly clean, showered, hair washed every day and clean clothes and bedlinen. Excellent!

My mother has been a resident at Berkeley Lodge Nursing Home for six and a half years.
She was suffering from Alzheimer's and was not an easy client.
The care and compassion she received from the excellent staff was wonderful.
She died in January and the care at the end of her life could not have been better.
I am truly grateful we found Berkeley Lodge.

As the only child of my late mother, I am highly appreciative of Berkeley Lodge and the superb staff who looked after my mother during her last weeks of her life. Their care and devotion were second to none. The home itself was immaculate, every area well presented and cared for. Berkeley Lodge is outstanding and is a shining example of what a nursing home should be.

My husband has frontotemporal dementia and needs a great deal of tact and patience. All the staff at this home have managed him wonderfully. The home is very clean. Clothes, even though marked do tend to disappear in the laundry. An introductory leaflet for the family would be helpful. Eg. I didn't know I had to supply pads, soap etc.

Had to find a care home at short notice. My aunt had been in a nursing home for 3yrs plus, it was closed in a rush.
It was by chance I went to Berkeley Lodge, I was impressed as I walked through the door.
Met by a kindly lady, shown the room, given a tour, offered tea, had the full home charges explained, told about how the home operated. I explained my plans, paid the deposit, fixed a date to meet the manager to finalise details.
I moved my aunt 60 miles est. time of arrival all in place with a pleasant reception.
Have followed home guidelines, the staff have been magnificent. Top to Bottom.
My aunt has suffered one or two moments, I have been contacted immediately where necessary and my aunt's needs have been of utmost importance to the staff.
Thank you, long may it continue.
