    The Review Score of 8.895 for Botham Hall Care Home is based on 7 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 4.845 for Botham Hall Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (71 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.845

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • 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 4.05 for Botham Hall Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 7 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 7 Positive Reviews = 0.700

      3. (7 Positive Reviews ÷ 40 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.350

Choosing a care home is a daunting task, but we feel very lucky to have found Botham Hall for our mum. She settled in instantly and has now been living there for 1 year. It is a real home from home and is not institutionalised in any way. Mum is always well dressed, her clothes are always cared for. Mum is part of a new family now and every time we visit we are always welcomed with a cup of tea. It's very reassuring to know she is happy and safe.

The home is well managed, but as with a lot of care home settings, staff shortages are a problem. I have seen new staff appointed and leave shortly after, quite often girls of a young age. The regular long standing staff members are very good. When a home is well staffed, moral is higher and the care delivered is better i.e residents hygiene/nutrition needs are of a better standard. Activity staff are very important to keep mind active and this home ensures this. Laundry and domestic staff are very good, although clothing when washed can go missing or get mixed up at times, perhaps a better system needed. My mum needs a lot of prompts with hygiene and dressing when staff are stretched this evident.

Christina Halonka, Home Manager at Botham Hall Care Home responded to this review on 06 Jun 2016:

Many thanks for taking the time to review Botham Hall - we really appreciate all comments and feedback. I’m delighted to read you’d recommend us to others. I can confirm that we never work short staffed - there may be times throughout the day where the home seems busier than others but we always have sufficient staffing levels. We also do have a new laundry system in place to illuminate clothes being misplaced. If you would like to discuss anything further with me, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Thank you again for your review. Best wishes, Christina.

Botham Hall Care Home is a friendly caring home. The residents are well cared for an the staff and management are very approachable if you have any problems or concerns. I would recommend it to my family and friends.

My mum is a resident in this care home, she has been there since 1 Feb 2016. Since she arrived there she has been so relaxed and chilled out because she hasn't any worries and she is so happy. She likes living there, says she is well looked after, so that makes me and my family happy that she is getting the care she needs.

My husband has had the best possible care over the past three years. The management and carers have looked after him during some difficult times, with understanding and patience. I could not find fault anywhere. he is always clean and well fed and dressed well.

I would recommend the staff are friendly and go out of their way. The rooms are kept clean while my mum was there, I rate it very highly. All residents are treated with respect. Plenty of choice in food. I know I made the right decision for my mum. She was safe and the rooms are a good size and they can bring their bits and pieces and own televisions.
