Reviews

9.3 Jubilee Lodge has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.288)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Jubilee Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Jubilee Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 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 4.883 for Jubilee Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (199 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 223 Ratings = 4.883

  • 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 4.405 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Jubilee 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 14.8 positive Reviews (74 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 14.8 Target = 0.405

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

Initially, a half way home my father enjoyed the attention and kindnesses shown to him on his arrival at Jubilee Lodge. A visit from Father Christmas and a huge chocolate cake for his birthday made him feel part of the family of residents on his unit.
His deteriorating health, however, meant a return home was unlikely.
All those who cared for him during his last weeks were sensitive to his needs, treated him with respect and ensured that he was comfortable.
When his appetite was poor, he was gently persuaded to have a little of what he liked, mostly custard.
Dad could not have been better looked after.

In the three months my mother in law has been a resident at Jubilee Lodge she has gone from being very poorly physically and mentally, unable to move, bed bound, to sitting in a chair, joking with the staff and smiling for the first time in months. I am sure this is due to the excellent care/support from the staff who have treated her with respect and dignity and who she now treats as her friends.

My father was cared for in Jubilee Lodge for the last few months of his life. I was pleased and heartened to see the care and concern shown to him and to my sister who visited most days.
It was a comfort to know he was well cared for when I live at a distance. I was impressed by the kindness of all the staff I met in my visits.

I visited a friend weekly who was there recovering after a spell in hospital. I felt easy and relaxed on entering the front door. All staff were obliging and knowledgeable and very friendly. They also remembered me each time I came. My friend was happy and we sat in the "day room" and had tea or coffee and privacy. His bedroom was pleasant, spacious and had all amenities he needed,
This is the very best home I have visited, couldn't fault it or the staff. A small problem was that I had difficulty finding it. Well done 10/10.

My mum came to Jubilee Lodge at the end of October. She was in a very poor state after an extended stay in hospital. The care she has received at Jubilee Lodge has been great and she is now sitting out and responding well. I never thought I would see her smile again and I cannot thank the staff enough.

My mother entered Jubilee Lodge after a hospitalisation. She is 97- bad macular degeneration- registered blind- no natural hearing- cochlear implant. She has a nice room and bathroom and is very kindly looked after. The nurses all seem to know her and how she is every day. The home is spotlessly clean and the food is adequate. The nurses manage her implant pretty well and she is pretty happy. She is also getting TIA's so no longer rational.

My mother has end stage dementia and has moved to this home from her previous one as Jubilee Lodge is closer to where I live. She isn't mobile which is a shame as she would have enjoyed the home more earlier on in her illness. All staff are very friendly and caring. My mother is always clean and comfy.

My brother was transferred to Jubilee Lodge from hospital following neurosurgery and to remove a cyst within the brain. The operation was successful but he suffered confusion and loss of memory. He needed assistance with daily tasks and found walking difficult. Jubilee Lodge provided a calm and stable provided with kind and helpful staff. After a few days, my brother seemed calmer and felt secure. His general health and mobility improved. Therapy sessions have improved his memory and he is returning home in the hope things will continue to get better.

From the first day I was admitted to the ward, I was very impressed. The culture/atmosphere was very professional and caring. My room was always clean and had an airy, comfortable feel. The menu was tasty and cooked/presented beautifully. All members of staff and management were fully engaged and clearly wanted to help. My transition between hospital and home has pushed my re-establishment toward 3-4 months. I fully endorse the Order of St Johns Care Trust.

My mother moved to Jubilee Lodge in June and she has been very happy there. The home was purpose built which means the whole place is very well thought out with large en-suite rooms. Mum enjoyed her trips to the hairdressers and there is also a shop. The place is very clean and most of the staff are friendly and helpful.
Overall we are very pleased with the care mum has received. We would definitely recommend this home. We looked at many which were a lot worse.

My wife was admitted to Jubilee Lodge on 5th May 2015 following discharge from hospital. She needed nursing and some dementia care. I visited her every day, usually staying several hours. I found the care staff excellent to all residents. The home was kept very clean, the cooking was excellent with plenty of choice and variety. There were various activities arranged for those visiting to be involved. My family regularly visited and we considered that she was very fortunate to have a place in this home at a time when her health was failing and I could not provide the care she needed at our home. Jubilee lodge is a very special place!!

I am more than happy to review Jubilee Lodge as my family and i have been thrilled and so grateful, at the bright sunny and caring attitude of all staff concerned with my mothers care! Like most people we have worried about any care home experience my mother was going to have to face but i can say, quite honestly, the year my mother has been in Jubilee Lodge has been a most up lifting and happy experience for all of us as a family but essentially for my mother. We have been overwhelmed by the focus, care and attention mother has received and how well the home is looked after to such a high standard. P.s. On 16th Feb 2016 we held a 90th birthday party with help from Jubilee Lodge staff. It was a superb experience.

We are most impressed by the way Jubilee lodge has handled the admission of our elderly friend during the last two weeks. The inclusivity of the care provided is wonderful and the accommodation is excellent. The general atmosphere in the home is friendly and welcoming and this is reflected in the relaxed and confident bearing of the other residents.

This is my 2nd review and a follow up to my first. I live in the States but spent 6 weeks with my mother between June-July, visiting daily for extended visits (3-7 hours a day). From the vantage point of someone who has seen the daily operations for extended periods I cannot speak more highly of the folk in Jubilee Lodge and the care they provide for our mother. We are especially familiar with Charlbury Lodge and just love the way they tend for mother in that Unit. The Unit Leader runs Charlbury beautifully. Her team are devoted and are tireless in their efforts and the care they provide. The food is delicious and varied, and I love the fact that Mother is given two or three choices at each meal. The grounds are lovely...beautifully designed and whimsical, with lots of interest to talk about when we stroll through them (in a wheelchair). Mother's brothers and wives have visited and are extremely delighted with the care she is receiving. What a blessing it has been to find a loving home for our beloved mother and sister and to see her doing so well. I am able to send letters to her via email, Skype face to face with her periodically, and call into her room or on a portable phone when in the lounge and speak directly with her many times a day. The constant contact is reassuring in every way.
