    The Review Score of 8.491 for Braemount Care Home is based on 15 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 4.258 for Braemount Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (79 Excellents x 5) + (69 Goods x 4) + (27 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 178 Ratings = 4.258

    • 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 4.233 for Braemount Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 14 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 14 Positive Reviews = 1.400 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (14 Positive Reviews ÷ 120 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.233

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear about your positive experience of our home and will share your comments with the home’s manager. The Bupa Customer Care Team

I enjoyed living independently, However, I recognised my needs were such that I needed greater support. Since moving into Braemount I have not needed to back to hospital. I have a lovely room with many of my personal possessions. I am no longer lonely. I have made several new friends and I enjoy the daily activities and music in the lounge. The staff are my friends and are all very pleasant. My family are able to visit regularly. The soup is excellent. The cook asks if we have any preferences, and usually can oblige. All the residents have different needs and the staff work very hard to support us all.

I like being in the home and feel I have met many friends here. I like my food and feel that is tastes good. I enjoy going to my room to watch my television when I want to be on my own. I enjoy walking and I am active but afraid in case I fall.

I feel as if I have lost my independence as I cannot do the things I want to do for example I am not allowed to walk with my zimmer unless someone comes with me in case I fall. I do enjoy doing activities as it breaks up my day and saves me from getting fed up. I feel that the meat could be cooked better and longer.

I continue to enjoy my own company within my own bedroom. I am more than capable of informing the staff members if I require any support/help. Or if I am feeling sad or low in my mood I know I can turn to the staff for help or for them just to listen to me and be there for me. I enjoy when my family comes to visit me or gives me a telephone call. I am happy and settled in Braemount care home and have no issues.

Too much gravy on the meals in my opinion. My bedroom is kept clean and tidy. The lounge could be brighter. The carers and nurses always treat me with dignity and as a friend.

Thank you for your review. Your comments are extremely important to us and our residents’ health and wellbeing is our absolute priority. We will discuss your feedback with the home’s manager to help them continually improve their service.

We feel safe and comfortable in here. My washing is done for me and I don't have to do the dishes. The food is variable and can be better. Change of cakes with tea. Lots of cream and strawberries. The Activities Coordinator is excellent at keeping us entertained. We would like fish and chips from the chip shop.
