Lawton Rise Care Home

Heathside Lane, Goldenhill, Stoke-on-Trent ST6 5QS

Lawton Rise is a purpose-built specialist nursing centre for residents living with dementia and cognitive impairment – situated close to the amenities of Goldenhill, near Stoke on Trent. The 62 bedrooms, mostly en-suite, are all equipped for those requiring advanced dementia nursing. With the first floor rooms catering for less mobile residents who require a greater level of care, carers think carefully about the type of room each resident needs.

Lawton Rise is designed, furnished, decorated and operated according to best practice from specialist researchers into dementia. The interior design of the home minimises the distress that can be caused by loss of memory, confusion and problems with speech and understanding.

Set across two floors, the home has four lounges, kitchenettes and dining areas. Residents live in small groups having individual lounge and dining areas, ensuring familiar faces and continuity of care. Both ground floor lounges open onto a safe, enclosed dementia garden and on the first floor there is an indoor garden area. The home even has its own pub – The Lawton Arms – a private bar for residents of the home. The enclosed garden has plenty of seating and a water feature - perfect for relaxing outdoors.

Regular activities are planned by the activities coordinator to keep residents stimulated and engaged. Residents and their families are encouraged to make suggestions, which will be met if possible.

Meals are prepared by trained chefs, who provide a variety of fresh, nutritional, and tasty meals to a daily menu. Special dietary requirements will be met.

Care workers understand that moving into Lawton Rise can be a considerable transition, but one that they try to make feel as easy as possible. By helping you arrange your room just the way you like, or bringing you your daily newspaper, the staff at Lawton Rise do the little things that make the biggest difference.

Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lawton Rise Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.619 for Lawton Rise Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (41 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 118 Ratings = 4.619

  • 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 4.403 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lawton Rise 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 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.403

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

I would not hesitate in recommending Lawton Rise Nursing Home for anyone suffering from dementia. My uncle had dementia but was otherwise quite healthy. There was always a lot of staff and nurses available and his every need was taken care of, nothing being too much trouble. There was always daily entertainment and activities provided which the staff encourage all the residents to attend. I would like to thank everyone concerned for their help whilst my uncle resided at Lawton Rise, they all do a great job!

I am very impressed with the care my husband is receiving, the staff are very approachable and so kind. There is entertainment every afternoon. The staff in charge of activities work so hard, making sure the residents have an enjoyable time. Also, the nurses are brilliant, they always phone if there are any problems. My husband is well looked after. If I ever go into care, Lawton Rise is where I would like to go.

The care and prompt responses are first class. They thoroughly deserve their outstanding classification on their CQC report. My husband could not receive better care. I have already recommended this home to someone else.
