Overview

The Review Score of 9.1 (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 4.8 out of 5 from 11 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 4.4 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.758 for Berkeley Lodge Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (99 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 128 Ratings = 4.758

  • 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 4.385 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Berkeley Lodge Nursing Home 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 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.385

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

9.1 Berkeley Lodge Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.143) from 11 Reviews

My impression is that everyone is very kind and patient with my husband. Cannot comment on facilities or activities as he will not leave his room.
I have said good value. It is expensive but I imagine such a place costs a lot to run and pay staff adequately.

I have found the level of nursing care delivered to my mother to be of a very high standard. The staff and management continue to provide the care and comfort and social interaction to ensure that my mother is comfortable and happy in her environment.
The room is very pleasant with a nice view of the garden. The home has excellent facilities for access when needed. Any important information is always forwarded to me.

1000 characters are not enough to say all that impresses us. At a time when Dad's needs increased due to a bad fall, all plans for a live-in carer went out of the window.
We were recommended four homes, Berkeley Lodge was the second one we visited and as soon as we walked through the door we wanted Dad to be here. We checked the other homes and quickly reserved his room.
All members of the team, from the matron onward, were happy and welcoming. The home is much better than some hotels we have stayed in. It is hard to say what impressed us most, we have indicated excellent on all options but to us, as 5 gold star B/B owners the housekeeping team at the Lodge shone.
The care and activities team are second to none and are happy to talk about care. Dad has settled in well and we have had no issues. When taking him out he is happy to go back to his home in the lodge.
We recommend Berkeley Lodge with it’s caring team to anyone who wants a safe comfortable, clean, friendly home for their loved ones.

I came to view Berkeley Lodge early March 2018, I met with the manager, who immediately put me at ease.
The home is extremely clean and all staff are welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
The meals are cooked on premises and are varied and tasty with several choices each day.
My father has become accustomed to living here in his very tastefully furnished and spacious room, he enjoys the banter he has with staff.
I am very pleased with all aspects of care given to my father, who can be quite challenging at times.
There are plenty of activities for him if he wishes to join in.
I would not hesitate to recommend Berkeley Lodge to anyone.

The care my friend was given was exceptional. The home was clean and welcoming with friendly and caring staff. This is definitely somewhere I would be more than happy to have a family member of mine live.

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.

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.
