Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Limewood 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.

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 4.708 for Limewood is calculated as follows: ( (20 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.708

  • 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 3.085 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Limewood is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 11.8 positive Reviews (59 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 11.8 Target = 0.085

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

7.8 Limewood has a Review Score of 7.8 (7.793) from 2 Reviews

Reviewer Connection to Limewood

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
    2

My father was in care here for two years, I cannot fault the staff, he had excellent care, the staff are genuine and compassionate with their residents, we were kept well informed about any concerns they had with my father's welfare, my father in return felt comfortable and had a good relationship with the staff even though he could be quite challenging at times. The food was excellent which my father was very fond of, the activities and facilities were varied and had excellent interaction and involvement of one kind or another to suit individual needs. It is very clean light and airy and has a good homely presence with comfortable surroundings. We cannot thank them enough for their excellent care in difficult times, we would fully recommend Limewood to anybody to have a loved one in need of a trustworthy care home.

My Mum moved to Limewood in March 2016, I was immediately impressed and continue to be impressed with the care and patience shown to all residents in what is often a very challenging environment.
The care staff often work long days which is extremely tiring but continue to display an air of professionalism throughout each shift. Thank you for all you do for my lovely Mum, I leave her after each visit knowing that she is as safe as she can be.
