Reviews

8.8 Norewood Lodge Care Home has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.807)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Norewood Lodge Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Norewood Lodge Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 5 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 4.286 for Norewood Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (45 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) + (5 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 70 Ratings = 4.286

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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.

    The 4.521 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Norewood Lodge Care 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 9.6 positive Reviews (48 registered beds ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 9.6 Target = 0.521

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

I had concerns when I was obliged to put my mother into care 3 years ago after an accident, which meant she could no longer look after herself. The fact that she is now aged 102, happy and healthy is a tribute to the care she has since received at Norewood Lodge.

My Mother has been at Norewood Lodge for nearly 5 years. She is content, happy and has received excellent care from the beginning. Whist the standards are high it is the care she receives from the staff which makes Norewood special.

My mother's stay at this home was appalling and I only write this review in the hope that it helps others avoid the same distress. Ensure that the person who visits you writes down your needs as you explain them and make sure you cover everything even if not asked. For example; if you mention you have a sore back, do you want to be woken and turned several times during the night? Do you need a walker or any other adaptation? If so you will have to take yours with you.
Check that your medicines all have their use by dates still on them, else they can't be given. Don't accept an 'arrive anytime' invitation unless you don't mind them being too busy to settle you in. If you want a clock or a softer light than the bright ceiling lights, take them with you.
They say they have taken these points on board, so hopefully, no one will have to suffer like my mother again.

Thank you for your review. Your comments are extremely important to us and our residents’ health and wellbeing is our absolute priority. We will discuss your feedback with the home’s manager to help them continually improve their service

During the 9 months my husband was a resident at Norwood Lodge, with vascular dementia and unable to walk, my family and I could not fault the care he was given. From the cleaners, maintenance staff, carers, nurses, admin staff to the manager; all of whom were there for his entire stay. Both he and I were treated with great respect and care, I visited him every day. When he was very close to death, I was phoned that evening by the nurse, and stayed with him until he died. Both of us were shown such kindness.

This is the second time my husband has had respite care at Norewood Lodge. His care was excellent. He has so many needs following a major stroke and totally dependent on carers. Staff were exceptional, very professional. noting any concerns and informing me.

I always felt that dad had an arm around his shoulder while he was a resident at Norewood Lodge. I always found the staff very kind and caring.
