Woodend Care Home, Altrincham, Greater Manchester

Woodend offers a welcoming atmosphere to residents who require nursing or dementia care. For those who need short term residential care the home is also an ideal choice.

On sunny days residents can benefit from visiting the large garden or sitting on the patio area to enjoy the warm weather. Each private bedroom boasts under-floor heating, profiling beds and a 24 hour call system which help residents to live as independently as possible in a safe environment.

The home works hard to cater for any special dietary requirements and seeks regular feedback on mealtime options to ensure everyone enjoys the food offered.

Regular reminiscence groups are organised for residents to help them live well with dementia and engage residents with activities. Gentle exercise is encouraged in the form of armchair aerobics to stimulate residents and keep people active.

Reviews

8.8 Woodend Care Home has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.836)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Woodend Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 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 4.833 for Woodend Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 4.003 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Woodend 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 15.8 positive Reviews (79 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 15.8 Target = 0.253

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

On visiting my mother in Woodend I was made most welcome, I had driven for 2 hours to visit her I was asked if I would like a cup of tea or coffee. I also asked could I order a lunch to have with my mother, I requested a sandwich it was brought to me at the same time my mother had her lunch. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. I spend 2 hours with my mother and each time I visit, I get the same response "well done to all staff".

The standard of care my father receives at Woodend Care Home is outstanding. The home has a welcoming atmosphere as soon as you walk into it. My father has been warmly welcomed into the home. He has been treated with the utmost dignity and respect and nothing is too much trouble for the staff to do for him. The staff have gone over and beyond to make him feel calm and settled. His face lights up when they talk to him. Their kindness and compassion has calmed the aggression that was apparent in his dementia. My father enjoys the varied activities that are provided and all the residents are made to feel part of whatever activity is going on. During the activities, I see him smile and interact with the staff. Thanks to the high standard of care he is receiving from Woodend Care Home, he has become more calm and peaceful.

My mother has been a resident at Woodend Care Home for the past 18months. My mother was admitted to Woodend Care Home having been hospitalised. She arrived in a very low state however immediately I saw signs of improvement/recovery. My mother could not be happier now. I put this down to the kindness, care and support provided by the care team. Thank you.

My sister lived at Woodend for over six years. She was treated with dignity, humour and compassion. The staff worked hard to ensure her comfort and when nursing care became necessary she was looked after as well as she possible could have been anywhere.
