  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published 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 8.874 for Beechwood Park 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 4.455 for Beechwood Park Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (80 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.455

    • 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 4.419 for Beechwood Park 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 ÷ 62 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.419

I am more than pleased with the care my father receives at Beechwood. Each and everyone of the carers are brilliant with him. Although he has dementia, I can see that he's happy, which has a lot to do with the way the carers treat him. I would have no hesitation in recommending this home, to anyone who is looking to place a relative in such care. From the management down to the cleaners, I could not fault them.

I am happy with the care my partner receives in this care home. He is always clean and is content so I have no worried. His needs are met by the more than competent carers. He seems happy in himself. I would certainly recommend Beechwood to families looking for care for their relatives. The home is nice and clean, especially with the new floor. It is always warm, so the residents can be comfortable. I can honestly say that Beechwood is one of the better care homes.

My Father recently passed away having been in this home suffering vascular dementia. During his time there the staff were superb and I could not fault their level of care and compassion. Feeding times were always difficult for dad due to a tremor he had but the staff always assisted him with his meals and drinks. On any occasion a doctor had to be called we were kept well informed and given the option to be present if desired. When he became gravely ill we were informed immediately and during his last days we were offered every courtesy including food and drinks for us when we were there with him. The staff were wonderful when he did finally pass away and couldn't have been any more supportive, including attending his funeral. I would have no concerns about highly recommending this home based upon our personal experience.

My father became a full time resident in the home in May 2015. My dad has vascular dementia and after an extremely distressful period in hospital and also a period of respite we approached Beechwood Park looking for care for dad. I brought my mum to an introductory visit where the nurse involved displayed empathy and understanding, fully explaining the care which could be provided and also the application process. This was an extremely difficult decision for my mum to take but the nurse who assisted manged to alleviate some of her worries. When dad moved in the staff could not have been more helpful or understanding, not just to dad but also to mum. Dad was dealing with a progression in his illness and was obviously uncertain about his new surroundings. The staff made every effort to ensure he was comfortable and reassured as much as possible. Unfortunately dad was re admitted to hospital, due to again, deterioration in his condition. During this hospital stay he experienced a very distressing incident. In my period of dealing with the hospital involved, the staff from Beechwood Park were fully supportive to me and did everything within their remit to have dad returned to Beechwood Park as soon as possible. Dad is now in Wallace suite. He is again very obviously well cared for, something which helps mum. There have been certain individuals who I feel have gone beyond expectations but in all of my visits I have felt reassured in the care displayed. This letter comes from the family to thank all the staff concerned in the care of dad. I hope in some way it may be useful to reassure other families who have to make a difficult decision to care for a family member.

My mother has been a resident at Beechwood for the past seven years. In that time she has always had excellent care and has been treated with dignity and respect. All staff have had a caring approach. Our family have been happy to know she is safe and her needs have been met. Staff nurses involve us with care plans which are regularly updated as well as informing us of any health concerns. I would highly recommend this nursing home.

From my first visit to view Beechwood. I have found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It is wonderful for me that my husband seems to be very content. The nurses are very good with what can be a difficult situation as he has no speech, so I tend to ask questions and I think we liaise well.

My dad is a resident in the Myreton and has for the last 5 years. We find the staff are friendly and helpful. His care is good and is quite happy. He used to enjoy music and singing entertainment, but there doesn't seem to be much of that now.

When looking for a home for my friend Margaret we went to more than one, as soon as we came into Beechwood Park we knew it was the right place for her. We did not make an appointment we just turned up, they made us feel welcome and very informative. Margaret has been in Beechwood since beginning of February 2015 and I can honestly say this has been the right move for Margaret. Always plenty of activities and staff are excellent at all times.
