Reviews

9.6 Signature Loxley Park has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.644)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Signature Loxley Park is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Signature Loxley Park in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 14 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 4.711 for Signature Loxley Park is calculated as follows: ( (187 Excellents x 5) + (64 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 256 Ratings = 4.711

  • 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 4.933 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Signature Loxley Park is based on 14 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 15 positive Reviews (75 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 15 Target = 0.933

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

My mother moved to Loxley Park last year from a different part of the country in order to be closer to family. She is in her 80's and was quite worried (understandably about the move). She has been made very welcome and feels content at Loxley Park. My opinion is that she is very well cared for. Staff are flexible and reliable, which is so important. The activities schedule is full of variety and fun. The St Patricks event in March was fabulous.

This is the second time at Loxley Park and its staff have come to the rescue and provided excellent respite care for my parents. The accommodation, meals, activities and additional care have all combined to restabilise my parent's situation until they regained confidence to return to their home with additional support and adaptions in place. We have placed their names on the waiting list in case a permanent care is needed in the future.

Thank you, J S, for taking the time to complete a review of our services. I'm really pleased that your parents returned to Loxley Park for a further stay and know that they enjoyed their time with us as much as we enjoyed their company. We will keep you updated of suitable vacancies as they arise however in the meantime should your parents require a further respite stay in the near future then please don't hesitate in contacting us.

I come to Loxley Park several times a year for respite and come on a weekly basis for one day. I find all the staff very caring and considerate. It is well kept and the food is really good and varied. It is most welcoming and all my needs are cared for without exception. I am very happy to go there.

My elderly mother could no longer cope living on her own after the death of my father. She moved from Kent to Loxley Park as nothing local to her home could offer the services and support available at Loxley Park. She didn't want to be separated from her two pug dogs, and they were welcomed and care and support provided to enable her to still care for them. The staff have been wonderful and caring meeting her needs in a kind and understanding way. Her one bedroom apartment has views over the old mill pond and plenty of room. The kitchen area and bathroom are both well adapted for her mobility problems.

It's hard to believe that your mother has been living at Loxley Park for over a year now. Thank you for taking the time to review the services she receives. My staff are all exceptional and always put the needs of those who live with us at the forefront of what they do. Your mother has settled in really well and made some new friends. As for Dorritt and Dudley, your mother's Pugs, they are loved by staff and members alike.

My respite care (6/10/17-13/10/17) was a delightful stay at Loxley Park I had been last year so was familiar with the services offered. I cannot fault it. Everyone must have a diploma in kindness. One is treated with dignity and that is a good feeling about the Park. I enjoyed my stay and will come again.

Thank you for such a lovely review. I feel very privileged to have such a fantastic team who without question provide exceptional care and support to those who live at and visit Loxley Park. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again soon.

My wife and I have only been here for fifteen days and have no other experience. We have been pleasantly surprised in many ways, not least the warmth of welcome by all the staff members at every level and also a diversity of facilities.

Apart from the obvious fact that we are all advanced in age, there is no feeling of being institutionalised. The following options should convey the detail.

Whenever I've asked for advice staff have taken the time to help me, I find the staff very good and they take the time to listen.
I settled in quickly as it was a difficult time after my husband's death and staff were very understanding.
I do like my apartment and the little balcony. It's important for me that I can come to my apartment whenever I want privacy and what I do like, is that I can be downstairs (in the communal areas) and chat with friends when I want to.

Loxley Park provides a safe, friendly and professional environment for elderly, vulnerable relatives who need the availability of wrap around care. Staff are polite, caring and treat residents and relatives with dignity and respect. Food is of a high quality along with the service. Housekeeping, laundry and maintenance. Services are regular and carried out without fuss. Everyone works hard to maintain this high standard.

Having been here one year and ten months, my assessment is confident.
From management down, care is exemplary.
There is much laughter.
Staff both respect each other and work sensitively to meet diverse needs of individual residents.
They realise our needs vary day to day.
Variety is achieved consistently and every opportunity taken to celebrate special occasions like Burns Night or a member's 90th birthday.
Regular members meetings are helpful.
While my husband and I are together I don't take part in activities or go on outings.
Possibly if one security man and one carer are on duty for two buildings, an emergency in both could be a problem.

Activities are first class - excellent. They do everything that I would like to do. They are very varied and interesting. The facilities are more than adequate for me and the drinks are quite good. They get us out and about, to shows and trips around the countryside. We went away for 3 days to a Warner Hotel and we're booking again for next year!

Hi Ken, thank you for such a lovely review. How time flies, you've been living at Loxley Park for over a year now and I'm glad you have settled into your new home and are making the most of the activities and facilities that we have available. Really pleased you enjoyed the holiday I'm looking forward to booking the next one.

The rooms, housekeeping and activities are all excellent. The helpfulness and friendliness of all the staff on every level is excellent. My mother has been exceptionally made very welcome and the help that she has had through some of her more personal problems will not be forgotten and they have been extremely helpful. I would recommend Signature Loxley Park to anyone.
