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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Langford Park Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 4 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 4.505 for Langford Park Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (53 Excellents x 5) + (37 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.505

  • 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 4.321 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Langford Park Care Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.571

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

My stepfather received a remarkably high standard of care and was treated with the greatest respect. He moved to Langford Park from the hospital where he was distressed and unable to feed himself. His quality of life although struggling with dementia, improved dramatically when he settled in. He clearly enjoyed the good quality food presented and was certainly motivated to feed himself. He was challenging although Langford Park has a caring well considered and intelligent response to managing these issues. His experience was well beyond my expectations and he was contented and often happy.
When he required end of life care he was treated with every kindness, all medical procedures were rigorously adhered to. I often arrived to find a carer sitting by his bedside reading his bible to him, he was supported physically, emotionally and spiritually.
I really can't recommend Langford Park too highly due to the quality of care, exceptional thoughtfulness and the respect given to all residents.

It was decided mum would go into Langford Park as it was a nursing and dementia home.
The transition to full-time care was excellent with the manager and staff all very helpful understanding and sensitive during the process.
Mum settled well and loves having people around her all day. She smiles and laughs a lot and really enjoys the interaction with staff chatting along in her own way and the way staff respond to her is fantastic. I can certainly see they are well trained in all dementias.
I find the home a lovely environment to be in. A very warm, inviting homely place and really enjoy visiting mum. All staff are great, being friendly and helpful and always listening if I need to say or ask something about mum.
I know mum can be a challenge at times and all staff appear well trained when these times happen.
I am so pleased Langford Park could take in mum full-time and wouldn't want her anywhere else!
A big thank you to the manager and all staff.

I feel Langford is a very caring home, the welcome is great and the management and staff are so very helpful in every way. Always a cleaner at hand for mishaps.

My husband is very happy and comfortable, as he says it's like staying in a good hotel, always a cup of tea to hand and shoulder to cry on. In fact, the running of Langford is very good.

My wife is staying in bed too late in the mornings. I feel she needs to be dressed and in her chair or wheelchair, 10-10-30 am. A drink isn't offered we have to ask in the dining room. In my wife's room, coffee and snack time is too late. I suggest there should be cold drinks on the tables in the dining room and glasses. Would it be possible to ask if there is any help from the hospice to help her with activities? When my wife gets her new recliner chair I'd like her to have a rest in the chair at least once a day. Can she have a bath if she asks for one?

Sarah Bracher, Registered Manager at Langford Park Care Home responded to this review on 10 Apr 2017:

At Langford Park we provide person centred care and work with residents and their families to ensure care is given at appropriate times and in a manner which suits them. We provide a drinks area with a variety of hot and cold drinks available in the dining room where residents and their families are encouraged to help themselves.
We have an activities team that work closely with the residents to ensure they have meaningful activities at a time that suits them, whether this is individual or group activities.
I can now report that this lady now has her new chair and enjoys sitting out in it for the majority of the day.

My husband became a resident in September 2016 and I didn't expect him to see Christmas. He was quite poorly but since being here he has improved and we are looking forward to Christmas. This is all thanks to the care and attention he has received from everyone at Langford Park.

Sarah Bracher, Manager at Langford Park Care Home responded to this review on 16 Dec 2016:

We are so pleased to hear that you are looking forward to Christmas and we look forward to spending more time with you both.

Standard of care is very high and residents are treated with dignity. The food is good and although I seem to be the only vegetarian, I am given special consideration.
The rooms are pleasant, there might be a few more toilets with locks on the doors. Residents are treated to various activities so life is never dull.
Visitors are made to feel welcome.

Care and support is very good. The only concern I have is the very frequent staff changes and manager changes. As yet this has not affected the quality of care, but does have a worrying effect for residents families.
