    The Review Score of 9.472 for Beech Lodge Nursing Home is based on 13 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 4.769 for Beech Lodge Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (125 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.769

    • 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 4.703 for Beech Lodge Nursing Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 13 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 13 Positive Reviews = 1.300 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (13 Positive Reviews ÷ 37 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.703

My loving wife, Joy, became a resident at your home on the 20th Jan 15. She likes it very much and so do our family. I would like to thank everyone the way you all look after my wife. She loves you all. That is nice to know when you have someone away from home. Having very good food, your staff are nice to visitors too- many thanks. It is nice to visit someone in a home like yours. I would like to congratulate the builders on the way they have carried out the work on your extension they have certainly done a great job with little trouble. Well done. I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best of luck in the future. I think you all will be busier as the news of your home spreads around, I certainly will recommend you. Good luck from Malcolm, Caroline and family

Staff were always friendly and accommodating. Rooms are of a good standard. Happy to recommend for short respite care, but for long term would advise that this home is most suitable for dementia patients. Elderly customers not suffering from dementia can find the environment distressing - this information would have helped me when trying to find the most suitable home for my grandmother.
