  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Wood Grange Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 10 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 4.551 for Barchester Wood Grange Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (98 Excellents x 5) + (46 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.551

  • 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 4.781 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Wood Grange Care Home is based on 10 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.781

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

Becky Hall, Deputy Manager at Barchester Wood Grange Care Home responded to this review on 18 May 2018:

Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

I would have preferred an earlier start to the day. The bedclothes could have been nicer sheets.

My mother has been here for a fortnight for respite care. She has been very well looked after by the staff, has enjoyed the various activities in the home, made new friends and has been extremely well fed. All the staff are cheerful and helpful. A very successful visit. We have already booked the next visit.

As a family, we would like to thank all the staff at Wood Grange Care Home who supported our mum during and after her fall. We are aware it took close to two hours for the ambulance to arrive during which time the staff were attentive and caring for her and her condition.
We would like to state we do not see the staff or the processes at Wood Grange could have prevented her fall but they made a huge positive difference after the fall.
The staff have been very supportive and professional in their care for her and her complex needs. Leading up to and after her fall the staff continue to treat her with dignity, respect and care. My mum has had complex care needs for the past twelve years so we have some experience in other public private facilities. In regard to Wood Grange we are so very impressed with the attention to detail, the care, compassion and humility all the staff have shown her and us as a family at this emotional time.

We've attended many events at the care home, including a Halloween lunch, breakfasts and Christmas fayres. They always put on a great, well-organised event.
Food was great, decorations amazing and company entertaining.
Love these events, long may they continue.

My wife has been looked after now for 8 years. She has gradually become less able to help herself and is now a complete invalid. I am most grateful for this help I have received over these 8 years and the loving care she has enjoyed.

My mother has extremely good care at Wood Grange. Staff are caring and considerate.
Staff and management have been available for me to discuss my mother's on going care. My mother has been encouraged to interact with others - activities, hairdressing etc. This is particularly important as she finds leaving her room difficult but enjoys herself once she has.

My wife spent 18months in the dementia unit where she was well cared for. She eventually lost her mobility and became increasingly helpless. New residents had increasingly challenging behaviour and it was felt my wife might be vulnerable in their company.

6 months ago the decision was taken to move her into the nursing unit, where the atmosphere is much calmer and the staff have more time for care duties. I feel she is now receiving better and more suitable care.

The staff here are excellent - very caring, professional and hard working, especially on Willoughby nursing unit. The leadership of nurses is outstanding.

- Rooms are too small and furniture too big, making manoeuvring difficult.
- For value for money, I have marked good only because I feel that they are too few staff at certain times of the day.
- Paperwork seems excessive and cumbersome and takes too much time. Should be simplified.

My Husband has been a resident of Wood Grange Care Home for over 5 years. He has had the very best of care. (I have experience of other very poor care homes)
I am able to relax, knowing I have nothing to worry about regarding his welfare. I feel extremely lucky to have found such a superior home for my Husband.

My dad has been living at Wood Grange for nearly 4 years and during that time he has always been treated with dignity and respect. The staff are patient, attentive and very welcoming every time I visit. They obviously adore my dad and love to do anything they can to make him smile. I'd like to especially thank my dad's carers who treat my dad with humour and compassion and for making the home and my and my mum's visits as pleasant an experience as is possible in the circumstances. A big thank you for all you do to make sure my dad is happy and comfortable and safe and my mum and I have peace of mind that he is in the best place possible. Words can't express our gratitude.
