Overview

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Woodland Manor 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 40 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Woodland Manor Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.647 for Woodland Manor Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (343 Excellents x 5) + (96 Goods x 4) + (20 Satisfactorys x 3) + (7 Poors x 2) + (2 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 468 Ratings = 4.647

  • 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 Woodland Manor Care Home is based on 13 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 13 Reviews ÷ 12.8 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 Woodland Manor Care Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.647) from 40 Reviews

Dad was extremely well looked after in his time at Woodland Manor. Staff were polite and attentive at all times and also made visitors very welcome. Perhaps a system to take residents for mini-walks (15 mins) outside daily could be considered? Thank you for taking such good care of Dad

We are very happy with Woodland Manor, where my Mother has been well looked after in a warm and welcoming community. She has been given friendship and understanding by patient carers, and the nursing care team have always been excellent too. Wonderful garden/coffee bar to spend time in/see visitors.

My wife who suffers from Lewy Body Dementia has now been a resident of Woodland Manor Care Home for almost a year. In my opinion, the staff continue to be kind and attentive and truly caring in every respect. I am conscious that a recent CQC review of Woodland Manor has been far from satisfactory, but I have to say that I have never found any of their adverse comments applicable to my wife's situation. Her overall treatment has always been such that I would never hesitate to recommend this Care Home to anyone requiring residential care and attention.

Hannah Markland, Home Manager at Woodland Manor Care Home responded to this review on 01 May 2018:

Thank you so much for sharing your personal experience of our home - my fantastic team will be grateful to receive your praise. Best wishes

To adhere to your Review Policy Content Standards all I will say is read the latest CQC report published April 24th 2018, it's a very true, clear picture of Woodland Manor Care Home. The only thing it doesn't tell you is the anguish some residents and their relatives are going through as Porthaven Care Homes impose massive fee increases upon their residents. Some of whom have been forced to leave the place they thought was to be their home and others struggle as they fight to keep themselves or their loved one in a familiar environment.
There are some helpful, competent staff at Woodlands but with a permanent manager very rarely at Woodlands and Porthaven's management failing to be accountable this is now a very unhappy care home!

I have been impressed with the care and consideration that I have received during my respite stay after a foot operation. The cuisine has been excellent and the staff are so kind and willing to go the extra mile. I was so pleased over Easter that church services were included. I loved the cinema and activities.
The cleanliness was exceptional and much appreciated. I feel stronger and more positive. Thank you to all concerned.

From what I observed, both the accommodation and care were just what my mother required for respite after her operation.
Our only concern was my mother contracted a chest infection while being cared for and was very poorly. She was given antibiotics, however, she said she was not seen by a doctor but a nurse. This chest infection persisted and has required stronger antibiotics and has still not cleared up.

Lovely location and fantastic facilities. My mother has been on the Windsor Wing now for over a year and has settled very well. The staff are very caring and nothing is too much to ask for. We live some distance away and we feel that we are fully kept up to date with her overall state of wellbeing.

From the moment mum walked into Woodland Manor for her initial visit, she has experienced nothing but dignity, thoughtfulness and efficiency. Having been in residence for 4 months, she has become more animated, mobile and content.
Every aspect of her care is exceptional, admin, food, personal care, entertainment, housekeeping - nothing is too much trouble and she is very happy and therefore so are we. Thank you.

Woodland Manor has been wonderful for me. It has got me to my feet after a fall and a period in hospital and has encouraged me in every way.
The care and patience of this often very hard-pushed staff is incredible.
For cleanliness, my bathroom has been kept spotless but my room has not received much attention!
It is the kindness and attention which will remain with me always.

All members of the staff are consistently polite, cheerful and welcoming at all times. My father would have liked the meals to be served at a higher temperature and reported that they were better towards the end of his stay. He also found that he was not warm enough in his bedroom. He felt like he was "among friends" during his stay.

The care at Woodland Manor is excellent.

The staff are highly professional, kind and cheerful. I feel very confident leaving both parents in their care and I have recommended Woodland Manor to many people with elderly relatives. Both my parents are happy here and great care is taken to meet their individual needs. They are also intuitive of my needs as a relative.

The level of customer care at Woodland Manor has been excellent. From the first meeting at the home with the client services manager and then the assessment for my dad (at home) with the deputy home manager, through to meeting the carers working on the Buckingham wing, the level of care and advice has been superb.
My mother, brother and I are very grateful that the team have worked so hard to settle our dad into the home. He has settled very quickly - much quicker than we would have imagined. This is to the credit of the team.
It has been a very sad and difficult time for us as a family but the advice and guidance we have received has really helped us all adjust.
The level of attention that dad has received from everyone has been so heartening to see. The carers really take on dads personality and they have tailored the day to dad's needs and interests. Dad is happy with the home. He keeps telling us how friendly and helpful the staff are - he looks happy and tells us how much he enjoys the food, people and singing activities.
We would highly recommend Woodland Manor.

The care and attention my sister, who was suffering from cancer, received whilst at Woodland's Manor, vastly exceeded my expectations and could not be faulted.
She was treated as an individual with great dignity. The staff showed great professionalism at all times.
The nature of my sister's illness prevented her leaving her room. However, the facilities appeared excellent and the welcome/concern extended to myself and family was greatly appreciated.

I do think that there is not enough time given between meals from lunch at 1pm to supper at 5pm. I would recommend that the time should be altered to 7pm from 5pm, when it would be easier to cope with having another meal and not eating too early.

Leigh Reid, Home Manager at Woodland Manor Care Home responded to this review on 28 Jun 2017:

Thanks for taking the time to review our home and for rating the service excellent. I take on board your comments about meal times but would point out that these are the main dining times only. In addition to this, for those who prefer not to eat in the restaurant, we have a lighter bites menu available throughout the day and a 24-hour snack menu. Thank you again for your kind feedback. Warm regards, Leigh

A very caring environment, however, they need to vastly improve their activities schedule for residents. Overall, very happy with Woodland Manor for mum.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience of Woodland Manor.

Please do attend our regular relatives meetings in order to share your thoughts and ideas on how further enhancements can be made or alternatively, just call by my office. Best wishes, Leigh

Woodland Manor provided several weeks of respite for my elderly mother, following some falls and a hospital admission which left her very unwell. The staff are very caring and friendly, and the nursing care good.
Mum's health and strength improved greatly, thanks to the staff and to the excellent food. She enjoyed the activities provided and found the garden delightful. For the family, our anxieties about our mother have been taken away, and we can see she is happy.

Sadly my mum needed to go into care. She arrived at Woodland Manor after not settling in a previous home. From the very first day, the warmth of the welcome from both staff and other patients relatives helped her to start to settle and trust. On day one the staff managed to earn her trust and the frightened look on her face started and disappeared and a calm look took over and she responded to the staff. For me being the main carer I also started to settle and sleep better for the first time in a month. I know my mum was in good hands with staff that really cared and most important understand what was happening to her. Thank you Woodland Manor.

I would like to thank the whole team at Woodland Manor Care Home for the care my mother has received. My mother is now well on the road to recovery after a fall in another care home. When my mother arrived at the home, she was unable to walk or feed herself and now through the dedication of the wonderful management and staff, my mother is able to walk again and enjoy everyday life at the home. I would like to thank everyone for the kindness and support shown to me through a difficult time.

It has been a difficult decision for me to agree to my husband having to leave our home to enter into Woodland Manor as a permanent resident, but I have been treated with sensitivity and kindness in the month that he has been in the home. I feel quite reassured that my husband is receiving the best possible support and confident it is the right decision for his wellbeing and comfort for what I hope will be for some time to come.

We looked at a number of homes before choosing Woodland Manor. We chose this place for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is a beautiful place in a divine garden, and feels more like a wonderful hotel than a care home. Secondly, we were made to feel very welcomed, and that they would really work with us to help make it work for our mother. Thirdly, my first impression the staff was very favourable. Now settled in the home, we couldn't be happier.
Management is very competent and the carers and all the staff;from the kitchen staff to the maintenance man, to the housekeeper are all wonderful. There is a passion for service and real kindness. We are thrilled with Woodland Manor in every single way.

Thank you for sharing your experience of Woodland Manor Helen. I will pass on your feedback to the team. Best wishes, Annie

My dear friend was fortunate in being transferred from hospital to Woodland Manor for a three week period of rehabilitation. Unfortunately her general health deteriorated and made it impractical to return, so she decided to stay on. She said she was so lucky to have such a lovely room. The staff made her feel like she was on holiday in a 5* hotel. The beautifully tended gardens were a welcome distraction from any personal discomfort. Her carers treated her with kindness dignity and thoughtfulness with light hearted chatter and jokes to cheer her. It is not an easy job being a carer but they have made light of every difficult situation. Nothing was too much trouble in the same situation Woodland Manor is where I would go.

During this stay my sister received an exceptionally high standard of care, from all members of staff. All aspects of her care were outstanding and the management has created a friendly and caring atmosphere. Very efficient and knowledgeable staff working together as a team.

I came in for respite a couple of months ago to see if I felt I could live here as I was not coping very well at home. The answer was yes, so arrangements were set up and then on Good Friday had I had three seizures so it was a blessing I was coming in here for 24/7 care. Food is exceptional. The only problem is lack of telephone availability.

I was made very welcome on my arrival at Woodland Manor being only the second resident to arrive. In the three months I have been here I have found the majority of the staff friendly and helpful. My caring needs have been dealt with satisfactorily although sometimes a little rushed. I am very happy with my room and look forward to my visits from my friends and their dogs. The food is of a good standard and the service is very good, long may it continue.

Thank you for sharing your experience of Woodland Manor and for your suggestion. We currently have two visiting Physiotherapists who work with our residents where such services are required. Once again, thank you for your feedback. Annie

My mother was here for 3 weeks on a re-enablement scheme following 8 weeks in hospital. The staff were fantastic and helped to restore her confidence in walking again with a frame. The food and facilities are excellent and my mother commented that she was made to feel 'like a princess'. An excellent care home where I am certain the long term residents will be very well looked after.

Since my gran was transferred her from hospital we have been extremely happy. Firstly the cleanliness and the overall feel of Woodland Manor is to a high standard and the facilities are excellent. Staff have always been welcoming, friendly and it is clear that they care and listen to our and my grandmothers needs, concerns etc.
The overall atmosphere is relaxing, and a very pleasant place to visit, especially as we are visiting someone we love and care about. Knowing they are being looked after in this way is very reassuring and helps us a great deal to focus on her. Thank you.

My husband stay in Woodlands Manor nursing home has been stress free and comfortable. He has received lots of attention, had a clean and beautifully appointed room with en-suite bathroom to fit all his needs. Whenever I visited with my family we were warmly welcomed by the staff who were all helpful and understanding. Nothing was too much trouble for them. As a family we would highly recommend Woodlands to anyone.

Thank you for reviewing Woodland Manor. We work very hard to make sure the home is warm and welcoming and I'm really glad you felt this during your stay with us. All the very best, Annie

My husband was well cared for in his two week stay to convalesce. This care home is beautifully designed and decorated in lovely colours with excellent lounges. The dining areas are really nice although the food is lacking in choice maybe because the home is so new that it is not full yet, apart from the food we found Woodland Manor faultless.

Annie Lampard, Home Manager at Woodland Manor Care Home responded to this review on 14 Mar 2016:

Thank you for reviewing Woodland Manor. I'm really pleased to hear you had a positive experience and I welcome the feedback. Regarding food choice, we do our very best to make sure menus offer a variety of dishes so there is plenty to choose from. There is always a daily menu which incorporates Porthaven signature dishes. Breakfast has cold and hot choices from cereals to cooked breakfasts and for lunch, there is always a minimum of two choices for each of the three courses on offer. We also have an alternative menu which offers lighter bites and snacks for those wishing to take advantage of this. Thanks again for your feedback. Wishing you and your husband the very best, Annie

My client and I have been so pleased with the caring, personal help that he has received from all the staff without exception. As you walk into the home you can feel the warmth of the welcome which is reflected in all the staff, from top of the tree to the bottom. My client has been happy and contented in the home from day 1.

Thank you for your review of Woodland Manor and I'm very pleased to hear your stay was enjoyable. Wishing you the very best, Gail

Only one negative: get rid of the net curtains, especially in the glass areas! All else positive.

Thank you for reviewing our home. I'm so pleased to see that you have rated us excellent in all areas - the team will be thrilled that their hard work is recognised! The voile curtains in the glass walkways are there only for resident privacy but these can certainly be opened to display the wonderful gardens and landscaped areas around the home. Best wishes, Annie.
