Reviews

7.6 Oaklands Residential Home has a Review Score of 7.6 (7.614)

The Review Score of 7.6 (maximum of 10) for Oaklands Residential Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Oaklands Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.5 for Oaklands Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (60 Excellents x 5) + (57 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 118 Ratings = 4.5

  • 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 3.114 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oaklands Residential Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target = 0.114

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

Oaklands is a lovely place to visit - always a warm welcome from all staff. My uncle is very settled here and is well cared for and always treated with respect.
There have been several staff changes in the past few months but this has not affected the care offered - in fact, there is a much more 'homely' feel to the place now. Would definitely recommend.

A recent change in management has led to a few noticeable changes around the home, which I feel has improved what was already an excellent care home, to make it a more "home from home" residence for the residents. My uncle is safe cared for, well nourished and has a good level of personal hygiene, administered with respect. Oaklands Residential Home is a nice place to visit where we are always courteously received regardless of when we turn up. Most certainly would recommend.

The recent "Press" reports must have been very distressing for all the staff at Oaklands Residential Home. They continued their excellent caring all the time in their usual manner always caring, cheerful and welcoming. Any problems, no matter how small are always dealt with quickly and positively.

Oaklands is a homely, friendly, efficiently run care home. The Manager and staff are approachable and attentive and there is a genuine feeling that they care. My Mum enjoys the interaction with the staff. There are good activities available, a choice of tasty food and visitors are made to feel welcome.

My father has been a resident at Oaklands Residential Home for several years. Earlier this year he was quite ill and the staff were very prompt in getting him medical attention and care at the local hospital. They made every effort when he returned to Oaklands to improve his health, and he is now physically better. He has always been treated with respect, care and friendliness by the staff.

Oaklands is a wonderful care home on every level, the staff go out of their way to help, show kindness to residents. There are lots of activities on a daily basis - also some residents are taken on days out. Unfortunately my mum is too ill to appreciate all the events and activities but I must say that she is always shown dignity as she has to have all her daily needs done for her. The staff never rush her and help her with feeding and drinking and talking to her and giving her time and peace. I always recommend Oaklands, as a care home they can be very proud of their achievement.

I have been very pleased with the care my mum has received. Christmas was made a special time for the residents and a lot of time and effort put into the Christmas Fayre. The carers seem to be interested in residents and always seem to be happy there. There are daily activities which many residents take part in.

Since my husband came to Oaklands he has been cared for with great competence, dignity and affection. Not only have his interests been attended to but my concerns have been addressed and my wellbeing thought about. Altogether I cannot praise the staff and the facilities too highly.

My mum has been in this home for approx. 2 years. I feel the home has improved over the last 12 months. Rooms don't smell anymore, new carpets, I appreciate it is very difficult with the elderly. My mum is happy and I leave her knowing the staff care for her and interact with her. The activities that are organised are excellent and mum interacts and makes nice things. Well done to the team at Oaklands.
