Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Byron Lodge 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 4.202 for Byron Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (40 Excellents x 5) + (63 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.202

  • 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 4.82 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Byron Lodge 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 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 12.2 Target = 0.820

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

9 Byron Lodge has a Review Score of 9 (9.022) from 10 Reviews

My wife has been in the care of Byron Lodge since 2016. All the staff have always treated me with the utmost respect, any problems I have had are dealt with straight away and all the improvements been made in the last few months have made Byron Lodge a very good home for all the residents living there. The care provided is of a very high standard and I would not want my wife anywhere else.

Staff are friendly and approachable and my parent seems happy and settled. Over the recent months, I have noticed a lot of input in training of staff, resident care and ongoing improvement to premises. I can see these things having a positive experience for my parent.

Majority of the staff treat residents with dignity in a caring considerate way.

My mother has been here now for 18 months and in all that time, we have been very happy with the care that has been shown to my mother. We realise that it is a very challenging job with some of the residents having various problems but we feel that the staff respond very well. Keep up the good work.

Extremely friendly and welcoming staff. Always welcome and say hello. They are forever on their feet grafting away, checking and talking to the residents. They always make sure mom is comfortable, fed and watered. She has very much kept her dignity while she has been at the home.
Entertainment in the home is great and it is always nice to see the residents enjoying the singer who comes in.
Food is good but needs some fruit in the trifle.

My mother has been a resident for nearly 6 years now and I would be more than happy to recommend this home.

My mother is very settled which is down mainly to the carers who I feel look after Mum.

The management staff are very approachable and will listen to concerns and any potential faults at the home.

The manager is always available for a chat and always replies to queries asap.

We got a new owner recently when the home was poor in all categories, especially management.
Since then, and after the latest CQC visit and report, which was very poor and justified. With the introduction of new management, the home is being transformed. Management have much improved.
Staff was at a very low morale, now much improved and getting better each day.
I think the home is on the right track after a few difficult years.
