Reviews

8.3 Oakwood Grange has a Review Score of 8.3 (8.282)

The Review Score of 8.3 (maximum of 10) for Oakwood Grange is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 3.8 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Oakwood Grange in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 6 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 3.782 for Oakwood Grange is calculated as follows: ( (31 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (19 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) + (12 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 3.782

  • 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 4.5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Oakwood Grange is based on 6 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.500

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

The care at Oakwood Grange is extremely good. Residents are shown compassion and dignity at all times. The home is very clean and the bedrooms are spacious with ensuite facilities. My friend is very happy living here. The staff are very caring and a lovely friendly receptionist to greet you as you enter.

Our mum had been in for one night only. When we went in the morning after 11 am mum was still asleep, her door was closed and her clothes were just thrown. Asked to speak to a carer and asked carer if mum had anything to eat or drink. Her response was, I don’t know then asked if mum had her medication, her response was I don’t know with an attitude. Then I asked where on earth was the care plan? Then when waking mum up to her being so groggy, we don’t know why or how long she had been laid in a soiled bed, we immediately packed up her belongings and left. Disgraceful.

I would just like to comment how professional the staff have been during the last 6months of mums admission as a service user. They have been supportive, kind and gentle when times have been difficult.
Thank you.

We have been visiting a resident for 2-3 years now - always found the rooms very clean and tidy. The carers always pleasant. We visit ones in various homes in the area. This is by far the best one.

This is a good care home. I'm not sure any resident ever considers a care home their real home, but the staff work extremely hard to make it as near as possible. It is clean, well organised and devoid of the smells I have experienced at other homes. It is the staff that make it and I can't speak any more highly of them.

On my visit today it was the care homes open day. It was lovely to see residents having a sing a long and generally looking happy. It made me feel good to see my mum getting involved with activities. Interaction is a main ingredient that the residents need.

Mostly mum is looked after very well. Just on occasions things haven't been satisfactory. One of the carers put the bed cover in a heap on the floor. Mum has always been very particular about the home and thinks the carers should be as careful as she was. She doesn't like food piling up on the plate and eats very little. As we all live away we are particularly grateful to the staff at Oakwood Grange for looking after mum so well.
