Midfield Lodge Care Home has a Review Score of 7.1 (7.083)
The Review Score of 7.1 (maximum of 10) for Midfield Lodge Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Midfield Lodge Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 for Midfield Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 4
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:
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.
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.
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 3.083 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Midfield Lodge Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.083

Midfield Lodge was clean and the grounds were lovely and all the staff were excellent. They took great care of my brother and made sure that I was ok as well. I had food and drink and they were always there if I needed them to help or talk to. When he passed away, they made sure that I was ok and if I needed anything I only had to ask. I can not praise them enough.

My aunt died at Midfield Lodge Care Home. I went to collect her belongings a few days later. I saw the administrator, she was very abrupt and unsympathetic. Quite surprising there seemed to be no interest or concern. I left feeling they did not care, just another death passing through.

Sherrill Thomas, Home Manager at Midfield Lodge Care Home responded to this review on 19 Sep 2016:
Thank you for taking the time to review Midfield Lodge Care Home - we appreciate all comments and feedback about our home. After reading your review I would like to offer my sincere apologies that you felt this way - we ensure our team are professional and respectful at all times so this isn’t something we would expect. We receive many comments on how supportive the home is and a number of relatives continue to visit the home even after their loved ones have passed away. If you would like to discuss this further I would be happy to talk in more detail with you. I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes.
