  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 positive Reviews in the last 24 months.

Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

  • 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 4.383 for Hamewith Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (102 Excellents x 5) + (68 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) + (6 Poors x 2) + (3 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 188 Ratings = 4.383

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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 provider 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; 3.00 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 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Hamewith Lodge Care Home is based on 6 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3.00 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.5

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

8.9 Hamewith Lodge Care Home has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.883) out of 10 and an Average Rating of 4.4 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time

I have a sister in Hamewith Lodge since 2014, to start with there was a lot of changes in management and staff, until this past year when new managers took over the home, everything is working well, the staff are more settled and happy and get on very well. All staff including domestic, carers, nurses, also a very good handyman who is very helpful, nothing seems to be a problem for him and gets on with all the staff and residents. All the staff at Hamewith do an excellent job, at taking very good care of all the resident's needs.

Overall, the staff do a great job. The food is good and my mum is happy. The staff are always very friendly and helpful.

Laundry is a difficult task due to the volume of items needing to be done daily. Sometimes it seems clothes are washed on a hot cycle as jerseys get out of shape easily. This is a minor thing.

I am seldom in the home during the week due to work so cannot comment on activities for the residents.

I had to go to my care manager and the care commission in order to get my basic care needs met. Due to going through these procedures to get the care I pay for, certain staff nurses seem to see me as a troublemaker they need to sort out. The carers, in contrast, have been lovely - working very hard with often very low numbers of staff.

My mother was a resident up until the 18th February 2017 when she died. I have only praise for the way she was looked after.

My mum came to Hamewith Lodge Care Home only in mid-August 2016. Sadly she passed away on the 17th September 2016 after a long battle with cancer. But I just wanted to say the care my mum received was amazing. I was so scared about her going into a nursing home but the staff were so lovely and friendly. Had a very relaxed and homely feel and they made my mums last month as comfortable as possible. Want to say a huge thank you to all staff.

My cousin has been in this home for 5 years. Her care and attention has been excellent. Her own personal hygiene and dress appearance is very good. Bedroom is lovely and wardrobe is very good. Staff, we know a few of them by name, are very caring and pleasant. Both my husband and I are very happy with everything that's being done for my cousin.
