Reviews

9.6 Longwood Grange Care Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.562)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Longwood Grange Care 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Longwood Grange Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.562 for Longwood Grange Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (133 Excellents x 5) + (55 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 203 Ratings = 4.562

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Longwood Grange Care Home is based on 7 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target Reached = 1

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

When I rang the bell at Longwood Grange Care Home, I was greeted by a very friendly member of staff and shown into the office. There I was greeted again by more very friendly staff members, I was absolutely blown over how lovely and caring everyone was and I just knew this was the right place for dad. I was given a tour of the home, the rooms are lovely and spotlessly clean. The dining room is set out nicely with tablecloths and fresh flowers on each table. The meals are fabulous too, in fact, dad has put weight on. I couldn't wish for a nicer place for dad. Nothing is too much trouble for anyone at Longwood Grange Care Home.

Longwood Grange is an excellent run care home, the staff are wonderful and go out of their way to make visitors welcome as well as taking excellent care of the residents. My mum has bad dementia and she is treated with dignity and respect from all members of staff even though she can be very difficult at times. The meals are excellent and a good varied menu.

I cannot praise this home enough. From the Managers to the care workers and the ancillary staff, they have all looked after my father with love, dignity and respect. I could not have found a better home for him. What Longwood lacks in facilities (en suite bathrooms etc) it more than makes up for with care. My dad was there from June 2015, he had dementia. Two weeks ago he had to be readmitted into hospital with kidney failure and we were informed he would need nursing care for his remaining days. Knowing Longwood is not a nursing home I thought that I would have to look for another home but the staff insisted that my dad come back to his "family" to die.
This he did and all the staff could not have done any more for him or me during this difficult time and the way they looked after my sister and me was fantastic.

I had to find a care home for my Mum as I was going into hospital. I called three homes closest to where we live and they could not oblige for various reasons. I looked at Longwood Grange and glad I did. I visited for a tour and from the start I was really impressed, this is like a 5 star hotel. The management team, staff, rooms and facilities everything was excellent. My mum had a great stay there, very well looked after while I was in my recovery time at home. The residents are happy well cared for by the professional management team and the staff. I have no hesitation of putting my Mum in Longwood Grange in the future. I hope someone puts me in there when I get old, thank you very much.

The staff were all right, but you had to wait a long time before someone came to take you to the toilet. Also all day long just the television and nothing else.

The home is warm and friendly and you are encouraged to treat it as your own, my dog is welcome and is patted and stroked by most of the residents. The care staff are kind, welcoming and have time to chat make you a drink and are really nice to my mum reassuring her and keeping her safe which was my main concern. They interact with residents combing their hair, painting nails, making them feel valued. So glad we found this home for my mum.
