This Review Score of 8.944 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.636 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.308 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 8.944 for Bramwell Care Home is based on 12 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 4.636 for Bramwell Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (95 Excellents x 5) + (44 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.636

    • 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 4.308 for Bramwell Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 12 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 12 Positive Reviews = 1.200 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (12 Positive Reviews ÷ 78 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.308

I would just like to say how my mother-in-law is well cared for at Bramwell. The Manager arranged a wonderful party for her birthday, for all service users and family. It's so nice to be able to take my wife on holiday and not have to worry, as she knows my mother-in-law will be ok.

Mum was admitted 3 weeks ago for a further period of respite. However her condition has now deteriorated to the point where she will have to stay at Bramwell full time. From the moment we walked through their doors we were made to feel very welcome. Mum's room is superb. Cleaned every day with en-suite bathroom and toilet.
The staff are extremely attentive and caring. To the point where Mum already regards it as her home. The food is excellent as she now started to put weight that she had previously lost back on. I cannot rate Bramwell and its staff highly enough for the care and support they are giving to my Mum.

My mum moved to Bramwell Care Home in March. Staff are brilliant, it's clean, well maintained. My mum is 92 years old, she is very happy and she is being very well looked after. All the staff cannot do enough for the residents and are always at hand if residents need their assistance.
I have had no cause for concern on how this care home is being run, by management or by the staff. I know my mum and if she wasn't happy then I wouldn't be, but she is happy and at 92 years of age, that's what you wish for with your relative.

As a family we feel our mum has been well cared for with dignity and respect. The care staff are kind and gentle with her and do their utmost to meet her varying needs. The office staff are very approachable, welcoming and helpful. The recent change in care home manager has resulted in a warm, happy and more relaxed atmosphere. It's good to hear laughter.

My father is a resident at Bramwell Care Home. He has lived there since June 2014 and in that time he has been treated extremely well in most areas. The home is very clean and most of the carers are very kind and efficient. It is great that the activities member of staff plays dominoes with my father. The food is nutritious but could be more varied. We always have peace of mind that he is well cared for.

My Mother became a resident of Bramwell in February 2015 at the age of 95. She required twenty four hour care and an environment providing safety and stimulation in her life as she had developed dementia and was becoming confused, which was a serious concern.
In the year she has been in Bramwell the care they have provided has been excellent and she has found a new lease of life. The support of all the management and staff not only to my Mother but to myself in a diffcult personal situation over the past few months has been exceptional.

I cannot offer anything but praise for Bramwell.

The staff are so caring and helpful. A new manager has just started and she is great, jolly and full of energy. My dad needs to be feed and it's never a problem. It's clean and smells nice (many don't). There is regular food snacks to stop the residents getting bored and they can walk around freely anytime.

My other is cared for with compassion and skill by the highly-professional and kindly staff. She is ninety years old and in the early-stage of dementia. As a rather private person, she is allowed privacy and is treated with respect. As an accountant I have experience of acting for care homes and I have never come across a home where the ethic of care, security and encouragement has come over more strongly than at Bramwell.

My Mum has lived at Bramwell for over 18 months she has always been well cared for. Her room is very nice and homely, the staff are great with Mum and she tells me that the food is good. I am very happy to go on holiday knowing Mum is well cared for. May I take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Bramwell.

My Mother has lived here for 2 years and 2 months. My Mum is always happy, looks well cared for. Her room is of a very good standard with her own en-suite. All the carers are very good with Mum and have always found her dignity to be well preserved.

My mother spent the last five months of her life in a safe, secure and happy home. She was attended by staff who were patient, kind, good humoured, caring and professional at all times. All her needs were catered for and health problems quickly spotted. I am very happy and grateful for the care she received.
