Reviews

9.7 Bury Lodge Care Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.659)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Bury Lodge Care Home 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 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bury Lodge Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.659 for Bury Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (146 Excellents x 5) + (64 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 214 Ratings = 4.659

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bury Lodge Care Home is based on 10 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 6.2 positive Reviews (31 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 6.2 Target Reached = 1

  • 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 now been in Bury Lodge since January 2017.

All of the team from the manager and below are fantastic. They all show so much care and compassion. I am so pleased with the way my mother is looked after.

Overall, I was extremely happy with all aspects of the home. I found the staff extremely caring and helpful. The food was very good, my only criticism is that sometimes there were not enough green vegetables.

I hold lasting power of attorney for my wife, who has dementia. The home is very modern - my wife had a very comfortable bedroom with all mod cons etc. The staff were very attentive and cheerful and the help my wife received with washing/showering/dressing etc was very good. The food was also very good and I was able to have lunch with my wife (for a small fee, of course!)

Unfortunately, they are unable to deal fully with my wife's worsening dementia, so a separate home is now being considered. This is a great pity, as my wife would have been very happy there if the future demands it. I would recommend Bury Lodge with very good management and ongoing care and purpose.

My mum has been in this home approximately 10 months. In her last home she never left her room, but here she has made a couple of friends and now joins in most of the activities. All the staff are extremely friendly, kind and helpful. Although there has been quite a bit of movement in the staff. The rooms are on the small side, but adequate and have all the required mod-cons. The caretaker is on hand to put up pictures and shelves to make it homely. I would highly recommend this home. It gives the family peace of mind that mum is happy and well cared for.

I was made very welcome on arrival. At all times the staff were considerate and helpful. I enjoyed all the meals especially in my room every day.
I would have enjoyed more challenging mental activities, the music and movement was pleasant and helpful. When I need respite again Bury Lodge will be first on my list. Thank you very much.

Mum was well looked after and treated well by very friendly staff. The home is only a few months old. Mum liked the food, which was good because she is very fussy. Also on visits and phone calls they were very kind and understanding to me.

My mother spent 7 weeks at this care home for a period of respite. The idea of the respite was for her leg to improve having broken her fibula and become more mobile during her stay, this was achieved. The home and staff were very welcoming to all the family and it was a very positive experience.
When telephoning the home regularly to speak to my mother the staff were always very obliging and each time I was able to speak to her. The standard of care was excellent particularly as my mother needed a lot of assistance during the night throughout her whole visit.

My mother was admitted to Bury Lodge for a few weeks respite care. The home is new and everything is clean and fresh and the bedrooms have ensuite shower rooms and are well designed. There is a peaceful conservatory which is a lovely place to sit and admire the flowers in the garden and regular activities are organised for those who wish to participate. The staff are extremely helpful, kind and caring and mum has nothing but praise for them.
