Reviews

8.4 Buckingham Lodge has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.400)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Buckingham Lodge 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 27 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Buckingham Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.7 out of 5 from 3 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 4.666 for Buckingham Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (227 Excellents x 5) + (85 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 323 Ratings = 4.666

  • 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 3.734 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Buckingham Lodge is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.234

  • 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 in law was slightly reluctant when she first went into Buckingham Lodge but over the last two months, she has settled well.
The difference in her from sitting at home in front of the television to now taking interest in what is going on around her and even joining in is absolutely lovely to see.
The staff and residents are all so friendly and she is so well looked after by the staff.
The district nurse and the doctors' visits are all taken care of.
I can only highly recommend the home!

My husband has been at Buckingham Lodge for 7 months and has settled in very well due to the support, care and kindness shown by all the staff and carers.
They have also supported me through what has been a difficult time, I can't praise them enough.
The home is clean and has a homely feeling which has been commented on by several visitors.

Mum moved into Buckingham Lodge in December 2015 for respite care but she settled in so well that we decided to make it a permanent move.

The home is clean and modern but it has a very homely feel. It is also very well thought out with some quiet lounges and a beautiful, secure garden.

The food is excellent and made from fresh ingredients. Visitors are also able to enjoy a meal with their relative - Sunday lunch is recommended!

There are daily activities which help keep all the residents engaged. Mum especially enjoys singing and dancing!

The staff are all very attentive and caring. Mum always looks very well looked after and we feel that she is very happy and content at Buckingham Lodge.

I chose this care home for my mother after visiting several in the area and gaining personal recommendations. I was impressed by the welcome I received and by the value for money. The staff are supportive and gentle and have complete respect for my mother who could be described as difficult.
The room is clean and very comfortable and feels homely. The home is in the centre of a vibrant community, which is important. I am particularly impressed with the care planning element. My mother is healthier than she has ever been.

I have visited numerous homes throughout the Country over many years, this is one that I would most certainly select as of the highest standard.
It is welcoming, spacious, well cared for, and all the staff act in a thoroughly professional manner.
Always aware of treating all residents in an appropriate manner to meet individual needs.
The best accolade that can ever be given is to ask the question, if I was in need to move into residential accommodation where would I choose for myself, and without doubt it would be Buckingham Lodge.
Buckingham Lodge sets the standard and is an excellent example of a well run home.

From the moment I looked a Buckingham Lodge (BL) as a possible home for my nan, I knew it was the right place. The atmosphere is very homely & filled with happy faces, both staff & residents. My nan has been at BL for 2 months now. She arrived a shadow of her former self but since being at BL her confidence has grown enormously & every time I visit I see more & more of my nan again. The staff are fantastic & treat my nan so well. They encourage her & the other residents to take part in activities & be involved without over-powering them into something they don't want to do. Nan has gained weight & looks really well. She has made friends with many of the other residents & her sense of humour is certainly back. The focus of BL is to support the residents in being as independent as possible, which for someone like my nan who is a very independent & proud lady, is perfect. It's a joy to visit my nan & as her family we know that when we leave she is safe, well looked after & among friends.

My father in law has been a resident at Buckingham Lodge care home for just over 3 months now and has settled in extremely well. He tells us the staff are lovely and my husband and I both agree with him. We feel reassured that he is well looked after, is safe and living in a clean and modern accommodation. Buckingham Lodge has a friendly welcoming atmosphere and we are able to visit at any time, share a tea or coffee in the dining or cafe area or just sit in the lounge and chat. We would have no hesitation in recommending this care home to anyone.

Buckingham Lodge is a very caring care home.
From my initial requests for information, through to providing a trial run of residential care for my Mother, to finally supporting her in the first weeks of full residential care, they have been very helpful and supportive.
The service is first rate and they cannot do enough for the residents, always making them feel at home. It is also very pleasing that they allow a lot of freedom to residents, who are capable of getting around and also provide entertainment and trips out. I never thought my Mother would be so happy.

As a Family, we were very anxious and unsure of the process when planning on moving our relative 120 miles from her home town to Aylesbury. However, I cannot commend the staff at Buckingham Lodge Care Home enough. They all made the process so easy, reassured us throughout and have made us feel more than welcome since our first visit.

The care they provide is great, all members of staff are genuinely caring and are keen to know the individual residents history and interests to make the transition as smooth as possible. The staff are very proactive with improving mobility, helping residents interact and calling the GP when necessary.

The home itself is modern, accessible and well kept, the corridors are wide and bedrooms/bathrooms are spacious. There is plenty of homely lounge space and a varied timetable of daily activities which the staff encourage residents out their rooms to participate in. All the staff are enthusiastic and take part in the activates with the residents.

The food is lovely, a daily menu is displayed and there always seems to be a great variety throughout the week. They also have healthy snack and hydration stations which are a great way of encouraging residents to keep their fluid intake up.

Overall, we are more than pleased that we moved our relative into Buckingham Lodge Care Home and we would thoroughly recommend it to other Families.

I was very worried and nervous about admitting my mum to a care home. She had fiercely resisted the possibility of having to leave her home of 60 years and I wondered how I was going to overcome this as she has Alzheimer's and is no longer able to live an independent life. I called to see Buckingham Lodge and was immensely impressed with the quality of the building, furniture and fixtures. I was given a very warm welcome and made to feel that my mum's needs were paramount. Mum was assessed in her own home on the Tuesday and I took mum on the Thursday. I stayed for lunch, which was delicious and cooked on site. There were healthy snacks and drinks available all day for the residents to help themselves to. Tea and cake/biscuits were served in the afternoon. I was given a comprehensive list of things needed on arrival and the paperwork was made as easy and painless as possible. My mum settled really well very quickly and when I left, she was sitting in an armchair chatting to some new friends. I can't wait to visit tomorrow.

My Mother who has lived with us for the past 8 years now has Parkinson's and due to my wife's poor health I was no longer able to care for mum properly, We visited and researched several homes and the whole family concluded that "Buckingham Lodge" was the easy winner with superb facilities, excellent rooms wonderful staff and management teams and all at a fraction of the cost of other homes in the area. We and my mum were made to feel important and felt confident that mum would be well cared for. We are also able to visit any time of day or night (within reason) and been offered to stay for meals whenever we visit (as long as we let them know in advance).

The whole family are extremely happy with the care mum is receiving and have no worries about her continued safety, welfare and happiness.

Lovely calm atmosphere and friendly staff have made my mother's difficult move into residential care much easier. Food is good, layout very cosy and well thought out. For example small quiet sitting areas instead of just large communal areas. The dining area is spacious and activities take place there. Very happy with communications with the home.

The Care Team at Buckingham Lodge treat each of their residents with kindness, dignity and respect. They encourage family and friends to visit and are very responsive to feedback. The location allows for residents to walk to and from the local shops and residents are able to be part of the local community. There are different lounges including a quiet lounge, where residents are able to mix with each other and be supported by the care team to take part in different activities. I recently attended a musical afternoon where a singer performed to residents, their visitors and the care team. It was heartwarming to be part of an afternoon that the residents really enjoyed, many of them singing songs from the past and dancing.
The food created by the Chef and his team is superb and he spends time with each new resident to discuss their favourite food. The dining room is spotless and family and friends are able to come for a meal with the residents.
The team have an open door policy and we can visit at anytime but at all times the security system is in operation.
On a Friday the hairdresser provides a great service to the residents in the hair salon. My Mum really enjoys her weekly trip and this is a very important part of Mum's week.

My mother has just spent two weeks of respite care in Buckingham Lodge and the care was exceptional. We felt immediately welcome and nothing was too much trouble for the staff. My mother spent most of the day in the main lounge area where at least one carer was always present and activities were undertaken. The carers treated the residents with such kindness and there was a great deal of support available. The atmosphere was very homely. Furthermore, the meals were excellent, both in terms of choice and quality. I would have no hesitation in recommending Buckingham Lodge to anyone.

Mum moved into BL in June 2015, one of the first residents at this new care home. Everyone at BL helped Mum to settle in, they are very attentive to the residents needs and we feel that Mum is now happy and content. The building is very light and bright, Mum's room is very well equipped and decorated, there is even a small fridge incorporated into the furnishings! The food is very good, all cooked from fresh ingredients. Family are invited to join their relatives for Sunday lunch, tables in the restaurant are laid with cloth table cloths and napkins, that along with the food make Sunday lunch a very enjoyable experience. Residents are encouraged to participate in various activities so they are NOT left to sit around staring into space or sleeping. The acid test - could I live there, definitely Yes!
