The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Roden Hall Care Home with Nursing is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Roden Hall Care Home with Nursing in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.387 for Roden Hall Care Home with Nursing is calculated as follows: ( (85 Excellents x 5) + (70 Goods x 4) + (18 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 173 Ratings = 4.387

  • 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 Roden Hall Care Home with Nursing is based on 14 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 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 9 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 mother was a resident at Roden for over 3 years and in that time she was always looked after well and treated with dignity. I was always kept informed on her health etc and myself and my family were always treated well by the staff.

I have visited two ladies at Roden Hall Care Home for about 3 years, in the afternoons.
The ladies and their rooms always look clean and access to a doctor every week if necessary is good. One lady likes the food, the other is not interested.
When one lady was more active, we took part in activities and enjoyed them.
I would just question why the other lady is in bed all the time.

I am happy with the care my father receives at Roden Hall, he lives comfortably. The food is of a good standard and the staff are friendly and caring. Some aspects of the building are tired and in need of replacement, the windows, in particular, would benefit from replacement. Overall I am more than happy with the standard of care and living that is offered to my father.

The general cleanliness of my father is very good: cleanshaven, haircut, nails cut. He is very happy with the food and the care he receives. Biscuits and drinks are always available. Doctors visit regularly. Prompt action on occasions when required to go to the hospital. Staff are very caring and pop in regularly. Overall we are very pleased with the treatment my father receives.

When my mother was admitted to your care home, the Staff and Management were very passionate about what care my mother could receive. Whilst Mum was with you from our point of view, she has the best care you could offer. The room was lovely (the sort I would have in the future). Everybody did exactly what they could do, even though Mums time with yourselves was a short one we are so very glad Mum had her last days in your care.

I am the nephew of a resident of this home. The care provided by the home is excellent and the staff treat her with dignity and respect. Not only does this apply to her but to her daughter and long term partner who visit on a daily basis. I would not hesitate to recommend the home to other families.

Overall, from observations and through regular contact with a family member, who is a service user, it is evident that staff deliver a good quality of care to residents as they are attentive, established rapport, meet all the basic needs and practice from a personalised approach. However the building is not fit for purpose but the staff manage to overcome this exceptionally and it is kept clean and tidy to a good standard. Therefore, I would recommend Roden Hall Care Home with Nursing, but the location is difficult to get to for those such as visitors that do not drive.

My Uncle has been a resident for about two years. In that time he has received the appropriate care and consideration. Staff are friendly and efficient. He is always clean and tidy, his room being large and comfortable, overlooking the garden (which is his most favourite occupation!!) I visit weekly and at differing times of the day and have always found his care to be satisfactory.
