The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Beech Lawn is based on 10 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.004 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.433 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.571 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published (including Restricted Publication) Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.004 for Beech Lawn is based on 10 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.433 for Beech Lawn is calculated as follows: ( (58 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.433

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. 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 provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 4.571 for Beech Lawn is calculated as follows:

      1. 10 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 10 Positive Reviews = 1.000

      3. (10 Positive Reviews ÷ 35 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.571

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10.

The Overall Average of all the Ratings in the following 

4 Reviews* is 4.3 out of 5

*The Average Rating only uses ratings from the 4 reviews. Ratings from the 6 recommendations are not used for the Average Rating as the rating options were limited to Excellent, Good and Satisfactory.

Eight months ago we selected Beech Lawn from several other care homes in the area because the staff seemed so friendly and caring. It took time for mum to adjust to her new surroundings, but she has settled in very well, joining in a variety of activities as much as she is able. She especially enjoys any music that's organised and being out in the garden in warm weather. We are relieved to know mum is well cared for in a clean and safe environment by a reliable, professional team and would not hesitate to recommend Beech Lawn to others.

I arrived earlier that expected to find mum happily working with the activity coordinator and another resident in making an advertising poster. Aged 94 we feel that it is important to maximise for the quality of life. Over the past year, we have been constantly impressed by the quality and caring nature of the staff. We are so grateful to all the staff at Beech Lawn.

The staff at Beech Lawn are a dedicated team of carers who under sometimes difficult circumstances give a high level of care and support to the residents. They are always able to answer our concerns and questions with reference to my mother who has a number of health and mobility issues. The newly appointed activities coordinator is actively introducing new and stimulating activities and encouraging the residents to take part in them. The residents have a choice of varied and healthy food and drink.

I am very happy with the way my mother-in-law is looked after 24 hours a day. The staff are very friendly and helpful and answer any queries I may have. I think the staff are 'heroes' having to deal with the mood swings of the patients and their constant demands.

During the two weeks I have been here I have been made to feel very welcome. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff, and family and friends visiting have been welcomed too, often with tea and refreshments. I feel the support I am receiving from the staff is helping me to overcome the huge change in my life, leaving my previous home of 60 years.

BEECH LAWN

I was very pleased that she settled in so quickly at Beech Lawn.
Every day she looks relaxed; she is well dressed & clean. The food and drink is plentiful and the menu varied and healthy.
If you want to take part in activities they are daily and are there to be enjoyed - I think this is important - because they can be fun and stimulate conversation through games, chatting or music etc.
My mum is very well looked after by a dedicated, efficient and friendly team of staff.
