Westwood Lodge has a Review Score of 7.8 (7.750)
The Review Score of 7.8 (maximum of 10) for Westwood Lodge 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 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Westwood Lodge 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 4.636 for Westwood Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (7 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 11 Ratings = 4.636
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:
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.
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.
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 Westwood Lodge is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target = 0.114

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Joanne H (Sister of Resident) on Thursday 26 October 2017. Relates to October 2016.
My brother was a resident in Westwood lodge until October 2016 until he, unfortunately, he passed away.
I could not fault the care he received from staff on the unit.
They kept us up to date with all his care and his needs.and when he had to go into hospital on more than 1 occasion they were very supportive to us as a family.
The manager was lovely to us from the start and always made time to chat with us if need be.
There was 1 staff member in particular that my brother really liked, she always made time to come and chat with him and made sure he was comfortable.
Always offered coffee as soon as we went in.
