Reviews

9 Deanwood Lodge has a Review Score of 9 (8.982)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Deanwood Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Deanwood Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 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 4.344 for Deanwood Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (41 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 96 Ratings = 4.344

  • 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 4.638 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Deanwood Lodge 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 9.4 positive Reviews (47 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 9.4 Target = 0.638

  • 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 has settled at Deanwood Lodge very quickly. I am very satisfied with the care my mother receives from the staff at Deanwood Lodge. They are a well-organised team that work well together. They make it their job to give the residents the care and warmth that people with dementia require. Residents are cared for with individuality, as carers find ways to stimulate residents based on their past working life and experiences. The Lodge seeks to bring in outside interests and stimulants - music, entertainment, crafts and a regular range of stimulating activities. I would highly recommend Deanwood Lodge.

Residents were entertained over the Christmas period with lots of events. Christmas party for residents and relatives. Punch and Judy show and pantomime performed by staff. Local school, singing carols, a 1940's singing Mother Christmas. Staff are very caring and concerned about the individual needs of each relative. Chef is very enthusiastic about making meal times entertaining for residents and cooks extremely well-balanced menu.

On the whole, Deanwood is well run and managed well. They do have staff problems, consequently empty and quite a few agency staff. The agency staff do not have the commitments which regular staff have, so unfortunately, continuity is not kept up. They have has a difficulty with activities staff. One person has been managing the activities for months, which is unfair on the member of staff or the residents.
The home would be mostly improved with more committed regular staff in all areas.

From the beginning, I have found them to be very helpful, caring and at all times pleasant, both with residents and family of residents. The food is excellent so is the patience of all staff. There are plenty of activities if they wish to join in. It is a very clean and happy place where nothing is too much trouble.

The transition for my dad to move from his family into care was very well. Supported by all the staff, they continue to show and demonstrate an excellent level of support and care under the current management. Daily activities and trips out support the on-going care. Dad is very happy.

Deanwood Lodge is always clean and sweet smelling. It has a small enclosed garden- attractive and full of flowers in season. The food is excellent and (cake heaven!) but the strength of the home is in it's staff. They work hard to care for the residents. Always cheerful and with endless patience. The work is stressful and sometimes difficult but they do it with a smile.

Last September (2016) had to make the biggest decision of my life that would be to have my dear husband (68) go into a nursing home. He has Alzheimer's, for the past 10 years we have shared many happy years together over (53) years later and the decision would be life changing. After looking at several homes he has been into respite in several homes as well, we decided on Deanwood Lodge. The Lodge is very caring. The staff treat my husband with dignity and respect. The rooms are always kept clean and he is always kept nice and clean and tidy. The food is excellent, if I like I can have my lunch with him which I do sometimes. The home is run very efficiently by the manager and his team and is always there to help if you have any queries he is always there to help- I would recommend Deanwood Lodge to anyone.
