Barnfield provides nursing care and prides itself on the care and attention given to residents and their families. Carers and nursing teams concentrate on getting to know residents, enabling them to look after physical needs and more importantly delivering what emotional support residents and their family need.

Choosing a care home is one of the most difficult decisions a family member or advocate can make and Barnfield Care Home is here to help families through that decision, through the move in and beyond.

Excellent care is the key objective of each of the team members. Caring for those who can no longer look after themselves is what they do best, with an approach that takes into account that although there will be aspects of daily care and activity that residents could not manage at home, carers continue to encourage independence wherever possible - thus enabling residents to make the most of what they can do on a daily basis.

This Review Score of 9.013 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.5 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.513 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 9.013 for Barnfield Care Home 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 4.5 for Barnfield Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (73 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 116 Ratings = 4.5

    • 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 4.513 for Barnfield Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 10 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 10 Positive Reviews = 1.000

      3. (10 Positive Reviews ÷ 39 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.513

I would like to say that the care and support that my wife receives is very good. The staff are always friendly and patient. My wife has dementia and can be difficult but the staff looking after her do it in a professional way and I am grateful.

After 7 years of caring for my mum at home, I was worried at my mum going into long term care. As it turns out the excellent staff at Barnfield made the transition easy, our family are stunned at the kindness, quality of care, cleanliness and genuine "being in your own home" atmosphere provided. From my initial "out of the blue" drop in to check out the place, the homely feeling of the place shone through and still continues. As well as excellent care being given to my mum staff go out of their way to address the feelings and needs of relatives too. To sum up if I were in need of care, this is where to come.

My mother has severe dementia- had 2 strokes- has to be fed via a peg. She cannot walk so has to be hoisted everywhere. The nursing staff are wonderful. They really care and respect mum's dignity. Mum was/is sleeping more and I asked about a recliner so she could still be with people. Within one day this was arranged. Mum has forgotten how to eat and within a few days the home had her back on the peg, even so they still try to give her solids. Mum usually looks well dressed but as she is loosing so much weight this is a problem- not for the home. If I have one concern it's about finance/admin. I usually give £ for mum to have her hair and nails done. I was assured to be told when the 'kitty' fell to £20. This didn't happen and my mother couldn't have these done "she had no money"- I felt terrible. Not blaming - probably a system failure.

After viewing no fewer than 25 different homes for my wife, Barnfield appeared to offer everything I had prioritised and I have not been disappointed. The staff are excellent and very caring towards my wife which is reassuring to me at this very difficult time. I would have no hesitation in recommending Barnfield to anyone looking for a caring and dignified residence.

My brother and myself visited this care home without making an appointment to have a look around to see if it was suitable for our mother. We found the staff very obliging and friendly. Nothing was to much trouble we were very happy when we left. Our mother is very happy and settled we could not have found one any better.
