Reviews

9.6 Foxearth Lodge Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.579)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Foxearth 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 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Foxearth Lodge Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5.0 out of 5 from 13 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 4.609 for Foxearth Lodge Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (122 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 179 Ratings = 4.609

  • 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 4.97 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Foxearth Lodge Nursing Home is based on 13 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 13.4 positive Reviews (67 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 13.4 Target = 0.970

  • 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 was admitted from hospital on September 1st 2017. I selected Foxearth for her after visiting several facilities in our area. She was welcomed with warmth and friendliness, and her care has been exemplary. She is comfortable in her room which she has been able to personalise, and her confidence has improved over the past 7 weeks or so.

I am happy that my mother is in the best possible place for her and am confident her needs and requirements will be met. The staff, and there are many, seem without exception to be excellent.

My husband has been a resident at Foxearth Lodge Nursing Home since March 2017. I and my family have nothing but praise for the care my husband has received.
My husband is bedridden and all his care is carried out with as much dignity as possible. The home has a very pleasant atmosphere and cleaners, kitchen staff, carers, nurses and management are very friendly.

I spent 14 days respite care at Foxearth Lodge Nursing Home. I was treated with respect, care and great kindness by the staff.
As it was temporary the room I occupied was not too good, and I found washing, personal care not good as no hand basin in the very small toilet. Als I would like to see drinking water jug changed more frequently, this was very often left on the table in the sun all day!!!!

Foxearth Lodge have cared for my mum since August 2013 and I can't praise the level and quality of care highly enough.
Nothing is too much trouble, they look after her with respect, care and make her feel loved as we all endeavour to do as a family also. Thank you Foxearth and all your amazing staff.

A first class nursing home, clean and beautifully decorated, outstanding gardens with a pond, bird aviary and feeders everywhere, which are filled daily.
Staff enjoy their job and it is obvious through their friendly approach to their tough job in caring.
The residents want for nothing, newspapers delivered daily, hairdressers, chiropodist and doctor etc... all in weekly attendance.
A wonderful location. Foxearth Lodge nursing home is an outstanding care home no matter how you look at it.
As a son, I couldn't be more happy for my mother.

My 97-year-old mother is partially sighted and lived until very recently in very sheltered accommodation where she was remarkably independent for her age.
Following a fall and spell in hospital, the decision was reluctantly made, she needs 24 x 7 care which sheltered accommodation could not offer.
The move to Foxearth Lodge was made as painless as possible and she has quickly settled in.
She seems happy and content there which is due to the kind and friendly staff who look after her.
The nursing staff soon got her leg ulcers and other problems under control and also put procedures in place to prevent further falls which has increased her confidence and helped her feel safe.
She likes to have her hair done and look smart which the staff have also helped her with.
Her family are welcome to visit at any time and all agree she is being very well cared for.

Absolutely wonderful care home. A clean, homely and caring place. We couldn't fault the care and compassion shown to our mother and 'us' as a family. It was a lovely place for our mother to spend the last few weeks of her life. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Every member of staff is polite, respectful and helpful. No request is ignored.
Explanations are given for every step or procedure. Facilities for families of residents are excellent.
Our mum was cared for with dignity, respect, gentleness and consideration. We felt she was valued by the staff.
Unfortunately, our mum was ill and died. The end of life care at the home cannot be faulted. It was excellent.

I could not have wished for a better Nursing home for my late mother. The staff and care she received was first class. Mum moved to Foxearth in May 2015 and firstly was placed in the nursing home section then had to be moved to the dementia side. At no time was mum treated any differently on either side. There are no words to express how much my sister, brother and I loved mum being there and would say to anyone your peace of mind while your loved one is in their care is worth millions.
