Lyndhurst Park Nursing Home is a small family run 27 bedded facility that has the reputation of providing the very highest quality of care. On entering into Lyndhurst Park the atmosphere is immediately one of warmth and homeliness. Every effort has been made to create an ambience of friendship and care that allows the residents security and comfort. Lyndhurst Park’s location and hospitable atmosphere lends itself to clients wishing respite or advanced and end of life care.

Because it is one of the smallest nursing homes in the county every bedroom is not far from a member of staff, which is essential when the client requires that additional attentive care and nurse monitoring. Staffing ratios are kept high and this reflects again the care many clients require. All staff are NVQ 2 & 3 trained with 70% of them having been employed at Lyndhurst for 7 years or more and 56% over 10 years. This continuity of staff is very rare in a sector where staff turnover is constant. It is another indicator as to the quality of care fostered at the home while promoting an environment that equally nurtures and respects its staff as well as the clients.

In their Client & Family questionnaires Lyndhurst constantly scores over 97% for the quality of care provided.

Reviews

10 Lyndhurst Park has a Review Score of 10 (9.964)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Lyndhurst Park is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lyndhurst Park in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 6 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 4.964 for Lyndhurst Park is calculated as follows: ( (162 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.964

  • 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 Lyndhurst Park is based on 6 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 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 5.4 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.

My father moved into Lyndhurst Park six months ago from his home after a couple of stays in the hospital. He appears happy with the home although he doesn't take part in activities which were not for the want of trying as far as the staff were concerned. Both his mental and physical conditions can be challenging but staff always deal with him showing respect and with a smile on their faces. Food is good, cleanliness and upkeep of the home is always excellent. I feel I made a very good choice when choosing Lyndhurst Park for my farther

My husband has been a resident of Lyndhurst Park for almost a year and all his needs have to be anticipated as he has dementia and is unable to walk or speak. Both the management and staff are very caring and approachable, should you have any worries nothing is too much trouble. It's a very relaxed atmosphere and I almost feel like part of the family.

I placed my dad into Lyndhurst Park 2 months ago and I cannot praise the care he is receiving highly enough. Both staff and management are so caring and have been a great support in relieving our family's anxieties. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lyndhurst Park to anyone worried about placing a family member into a care home.

I have recently had to place my uncle into Lyndhurst Park. Initially I felt apprehensive about doing so but all of my concerns were quickly eased from the professionalism and care he has received form all the staff. The home is clean and very pleasant with a cheery atmosphere.

Have always been satisfied with the care my mother-in-law has received in the 9 months she has been a resident. The main plus for me is that whenever you visit there is always a familiar face as I don't think there is a high turnover of staff

When I assisted my mother to place my beloved Uncle into a nursing home we were very worried about choosing the wrong home. Thankfully we found Lyndhurst. The care, the staff and everything about it is outstanding. I cannot praise this home highly enough.
