Reviews

8.9 Lakeside Nursing & Residential Home has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.943)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Lakeside Nursing & Residential 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 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lakeside Nursing & Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 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 4.793 for Lakeside Nursing & Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (190 Excellents x 5) + (45 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 237 Ratings = 4.793

  • 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 4.15 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lakeside Nursing & Residential 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 10 positive Reviews (50 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10 Target = 0.400

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

My dad was resident here from late November till he passed on New Years Day. The nurse's carers even cleaners and kitchen staff gave not just my dad but us as a family first class care. They were patient understanding and so very supportive to me and my family not just during the worst time of our lives but afterwards as well. Can't thank them enough. Would highly recommend. Just hope when I'm of age I'm fortunate enough to reside somewhere like Lakeside Nursing and Residential Home.

My father stayed in a comfortable room for four weeks. We found all the staff to be friendly, cheerful, helpful and caring in many ways. He said the food was excellent every day. Both the building and grounds were very pleasant. The nurses I met were very conscientious and the place was very well run.

Our experience of Lakeside Nursing and Residential Home was the best we could have asked for. The staff were amazing with my grandad who was very ill with lung cancer. We were made to feel very welcome, we spent a lot of the time there during the last weeks of his life and we couldn't have asked for any better care. They cared for my grandad with dignity and respect and on his last day, the love and respect we felt will stay with us forever. Grandad called you all angels and you truly are.

The care my mother has received during her time at Lakeside Nursing and Residential Home has been outstanding. Sadly my mum passed away recently but right to the end the love and care shown to her during this time will be a comfort to us in the future.

I was very happy with my mother's care in Lakeside Nursing & Residential Home. The bedroom and public areas are bright and cheerful, always clean and well maintained. My mother enjoyed the meals and the menus always looked appetising but the most outstanding feature of the home is the staff. All members of staff were pleasant and friendly, treating my mother with great care and consideration especially in the last week before she was admitted to hospital when she was nursed superbly. I cannot praise the staff highly enough.

My dad lived at lakeside for 2 years eight months. He had very poor health, but was cared for very well. He was unable to be moved and for the majority of his stay was in bed. All staff from the nurses to the domestic staff always made time to stop and have a chat to him. As his health deteriorated they ensured he was comfortable and pain free. I cannot thank them enough for their kindness and support .

Both my godparents went into Lakeside in Jan 2015. They had a beautiful double room overlooking the lake. My godmother passed away on April 2015. My godfather was moved to an equally nice single room until he passed away this month. The care they both had was second to none and the home was a lovely place to be.

After a sudden illness we had to find care accommodation for my father at short notice. We were fortunate to have a number of care homes in our area to choose from. We visited them all.
At Lakeside we were struck by the professionalism, pro active and naturally caring attitude at this home and, having admitted my father, our initial expectations have been exceeded. From a life threatening scenario he has been nursed back to strength. He finds the atmosphere in the home friendly and, as a family, we are always welcomed warmly upon our visits.
Having considerable experience on the receiving end of nursing care over recent years with other family members, we cannot sing the praises of the Lakeside management team loudly enough.

I find the staff very caring for my mother.
She has been resident here for 3 months so far.
She has improved dramatically since being in their care, from a rather frail start.
The staff are always approachable and ready to listen to any concerns that I or my family have, and willing to find answers to problems.
They are extremely capable and deal with the residents as if their own family.
The atmosphere is excellent, the house clean, tidy and well presented.
I have both personal knowledge and knowledge as a professional going into the home, and can find few faults.

Mum has been a resident at Lakeside for 3 years. Mum can be a real challenge and very awkward, the staff at Lakeside are very patient and good with her. Nothing is ever too much trouble for them, mum is looked after. When she was taken to hospital overnight she was welcomed back and made very comfortable. We have always felt part of a big family at Lakeside. They are all excellent.

The care provided 24/7 by every member of staff is exemplary. Dad was treated with total respect, dignity and understanding. All his nursing and psychological needs were addressed, staff treating him as one of their own, showing their genuine care and thoughtfulness. Standards are exceptionally high, everyone smiles and is genuinely happy, ensuring a positive culture is portrayed. Matron and deputy matron are excellent leaders/ role models and all staff 'go the extra mile' for the residents and their families. No concerns, just the utmost praise for a fantastic team - the best. Thank you.

From the management right through to the whole care team, the standard was excellent and delivered with such a personal and cheerful touch. The matron and deputy matron came in on their days off at the weekend during the final weeks of my father-in-laws life. This was certainly going the extra mile to ensure he has a peaceful end to his life.
