  • 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 4.712 for Barchester Chorleywood Beaumont Care Community is calculated as follows: ( (118 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.712

      • 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 4.433 for Barchester Chorleywood Beaumont Care Community 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 ÷ 60 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.433

My mother initially came to the Beaumont, Chorley Wood for a two week respite after discharge from hospital. However having been diagnosed with vascular dementia her stay is now becoming more permanent. During my Mothers time here the home has been excellent in all respects; from the commitment and friendliness of the Carers, the professionalism of the nursing staff, Management and front office to the excellent catering.

In brief I know that my mother is being well cared for.

My mother went in for respite. She is 93 and a previous experience at another home has left her in an uncertain frame of mind. Her experience at Beaumont was excellent and on discussing her stay she was full of praise for the staff, her care, food and the whole experience.
She has no reservations about returning for another stay.

The admin staff were very kind and understood the urgency, she had a wonderful couple of weeks there at the end of her journey I can't thank these wonderful people enough for not only looking after my mum with such kindness and love but for helping our family get through this sad time, they were all caring and compassionate who surrounded us her family with a blanket of love I can't thank them enough.

My mother-in-law spent her last days at the Barchester care home. She was treated with dignity and compassion. The staff genuinely cared and took pride in their work. The home itself was like a five star hotel and the residents seem very happy there. We as a family could not have wished for a better place for our loved one to pass away and we highly recommend the Barchester Chorleywood to anyone seeking good quality care. Thank you to all of the staff.

Every member of staff at the Beaumont is an angel sent from God! They were there not only for our mum but they also cared and supported us through such a dark time. I cannot thank each and every one of them enough. I will forever be in their debt and will remember fondly my mums last days and how they genuinely cared for her. She loved her comfortable room and the food was fantastic. There were plenty of activities for the residents and the lounge and dinning areas were lovely and a home from home. Night times were very quiet and peaceful and mum was able to rest undisturbed. Thank you again our wonderful Beaumont family. you are truly amazing.

We needed to find somewhere for our beloved mum to spend her last days. Firstly the facilities are amazing, our mum kept saying I love my new flat, I am very comfortable here. The staff are very caring and approachable and I mean ALL of the staff! nothing was too much trouble and we felt that Mum was safe and cared for here. In the last days the support our family felt was very comforting. I stayed with my mum for 5 days as I didn't want to leave her, this was not a problem to anyone at Beaumont house I was made to feel comfortable, offered food and drinks, bedding and showers. When my mum passed away she was treated with such respect and we were given the time we needed. There was no rush for us to leave but as the night staff came on duty and we saw who would be with our mum until the Dr and undertakers came we felt ready to leave knowing everything would be ok. Overall at a very distressing time we were able to cope because of the care we were shown.

Booked in for a short stay, 9 day stay. The staff were very good, and very helpful. Room 'nothing special' and had minor faults - such as carpet was worn. Food was good - adequate and sufficient.

My husband, recently disabled aged 65 by a stroke, has spent a week at the above respite care. He thoroughly enjoyed his stay in the nursing care section. The nursing and care, personal care, meals and equipment were all of a high standard. The staff were all highly professional and couldn't do enough for him. The home itself and gardens are excellent.

Mother was here for five years living semi independently. The staff are unfailingly kind and helpful. Her carers made sure her needs were all met and she was well and happy.

My wife's condition requires 24/7 care and has seriously affected her speech, making all verbal communication difficult. The carers at the home have developed such a rapport with my wife they are able to predict her needs and thus reduce/remove any stress. As a result my wife spends a lot of the time with a smile on her face despite her circumstances.
