  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cartmel Grange Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 out of 5 from 4 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 4.681 for Cartmel Grange Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (33 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.681

  • 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 4.024 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Cartmel Grange 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 14.6 positive Reviews (73 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 14.6 Target = 0.274

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

8.7 Cartmel Grange Nursing Home has a Review Score of 8.7 (8.705) from 4 Reviews

I would like to thank the wonderful staff at Cartmel Grange for the outstanding care that they gave to my dad during his short stay with them.
There is a very warm and loving culture that runs through everybody who works there and this shines through in everything they do.
During the last few days of my dad’s life, they were always there to give us the support we needed. His nursing care was excellent and everyone treated him with such respect and dignity. They couldn’t have done any more for us as a family. They kept us going with hugs, tea and biscuits and meals.
Truly outstanding in all areas. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this nursing home.

My husband has been a resident since April 2016. He had need of 24-hour medical care and was diagnosed with vascular dementia. In all this time he has received excellent care, both medically and in all ways to do with dementia, treated with kindness, understanding and dignity. Lots of fun and laughter and their kindness to me and my family will not be forgotten. All the staff, managers, carers, cooks, cleaners, laundry and gardeners - all smile and laugh. In all this time I have never heard a harsh word. My husband is a much-loved family man and we are all happy.

Our Mum was in the care of Cartmel Grange for nearly four years. I can say that the care and attention she got was exemplary. My mum suffered a huge stroke and lost all mobility and language, she had to be fed, lifted, washed etc. All the staff throughout the organisation from Kitchen, Care, and Entertainment showed her the utmost compassion and care. They engaged with her and often raised a smile from her. As she was coming to the end of life they kept her comfortable and peaceful.
I would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone who wanted their loved ones cared for.

Residents are treated with the utmost care and respect with a friendly, welcoming approach, catering to personal needs. In addition to medical care, there is a varied range of activities organised daily to suit everyone and residents often enjoy entertainment laid on by Cartmel Grange. This is a very well run care home and I would happily recommend.
