Reviews

8.8 Lymewood Court Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.761)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Lymewood Court Nursing 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 4.576 for Lymewood Court Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (34 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 59 Ratings = 4.576

  • 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 4.185 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Lymewood Court Nursing 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 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target = 0.435

  • 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 just like to thank you for all the care you gave my mother-in-law why she was with you. She spent the last few weeks of her life with you, your staff looked after her as if she was one of the family. You made a very hard time that little bit easier for my wife and step-children. I would recommend your home to anyone. Many thanks

I always find staff friendly and helpful, even though there is a staff shortage, with a number of staff leaving.

The care home is clean and tidy, rooms are kept clean and tidy and Mum's clothing is washed and ironed.

Mum sometimes has to wait for going to the bathroom but it's again down to staff numbers.

Having just lost my mother.
I would just like to thank all the staff for their understanding and patience at the weekend.
The staff were very caring and did all they could to make the last moments of my mum's life comfortable and I cannot praise them enough for all their help.
The home is always kept spotless and they interact with all the patients on a very personal level. The attention to detail and the care given is in my opinion 5 star.
