Overview

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Tallington Lodge Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Tallington 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 18 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.593 for Tallington Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (130 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.593

  • 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 Tallington Lodge Care Home is based on 18 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 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 6 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.

9.6 Tallington Lodge Care Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.593) from 18 Reviews

I am extremely pleased with how my concern of respite care for my mother was considered by the manager and her staff and of the care provided during her stay at Tallington Lodge. I have no hesitation in sorting respite care for her here again and certainly can only speak very positively about the place.

Home is always welcoming, I don't get the chance to visit often but I'm made to feel comfortable and at ease when I do visit. No pressure to leave, always welcome - It's just like visiting my Grandmother at her home.

When it became apparent that my nan needed residential care, we looked around several nursing homes local to us and were very disappointed with the standards that we saw. We were told of a vacancy at Tallington Lodge by social services and while this is 45mins from us and at the time the facilities were not as modern as those we had looked at nearer home, the feeling we got when looking around was one of care and concern for the residents. This has continued during the renovation work and its great to see my nan happy and content with where she is living.

I have been visiting several times when the residents have been dancing or playing bingo and had a great time joining in.

Following mum's admission as a lonely isolated person, she is now re-invigorated in a 5-week period. The change in her is quite remarkable. She has refound her vitality and feistiness and we are quite happy with this development.

My friend has been at Tallington for a while now. She only came in for respite and now is staying. She is very particular so her deciding to stay must say a lot about her preference for Tallington.

I found the staff very friendly and efficient. The customer relations manager, who helped us navigate the process was very welcoming and helpful. Not having been through the process before, we were a bit at sea but he answered all our questions and made us feel at ease. Dad's diet, being pureed, makes it difficult to say much about the food. He seemed to like it though and the only thing I would say was that the portions did not look very much but that could be down to it being pureed.

Staff are very kind and caring. They are also understanding which I think is very important. They avoid making my husband feel embarrased, which gives me peace of mind.
