At the innovative new Baylham Care Centre, carers aim to offer unparalleled levels of service ranging from respite to long term nursing, from rehabilitation and physiotherapy to Dementia and holistic End of Life care.

Many of the facilities are new to this country. For example, there are wireless communications in each room that allows members of staff to talk to or summon anyone within the building, thereby saving valuable time. Also, they have the capability when the situation requires it to have residents remotely monitored by their doctor, who can determine what, if any, action should be taken. Time spent by staff with the residents is very important; therefore, they have installed many labour-saving systems to ensure this happens as often as possible.

Every effort has been made to cater for the needs of residents. This includes a wide range of accommodation, on and off site facilities, freshly prepared food to meet dietary requirements, relaxing surroundings with sensory gardens, themed reminiscence lounges and stunning panoramic views across the Gipping Valley.

    The Review Score of 8.857 for Baylham Care Centre 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 4.902 for Baylham Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (74 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 82 Ratings = 4.902

    • 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 3.955 for Baylham Care Centre is calculated as follows:

      1. 7 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 7 Positive Reviews = 0.700

      3. (7 Positive Reviews ÷ 55 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.255

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10.

Baylham Care Centre gave excellent care to my cousin. I felt that she was always treated with respect. All the staff seemed to be involved with care of residents, and it was well-staffed. I often sat quietly and observed staff behaviour and never had any concerns about their treatment of residents. My cousin received end of life care at Baylham, after a severe stroke. In her last few days she was treated with love and dignity.

Mum spent four weeks at Baylham Care Centre, after a period of ill health, partly at home and partly in hospital. On her arrival, she was given every comfort, both physically and mentally, which continued throughout her stay. Staff were all so kind, caring and friendly, to patients and family alike, and their dedication could not be faulted.

When mum was taken to hospital for what we thought was dehydration, it came as a shock to be told she was at the end of her life. As well as the trauma of that news, we had the stress of finding a care/nursing home which would provide the most comfortable and stimulating environment for mum. We couldn't have asked for a better care home than Baylham. The design, fitting out, d├ęcor, and operation are all intended to create a friendly, homely environment. The staff are exceptional the care professional and dignified and we were treated as part of the Baylham family even past the end. All care homes, should be like this.

My wife has severe Alzheimer's over the last 18 months we have used Baylham for full respite care and day care twice a week have found the management, care staff and nursing staff to be 1st class, always ready with help and advice when needed. They always give a cheerful greeting and a cup of teas. The care home is clean, bright with lovely enclosed garden, They have even arranged cover if I fall ill.

All of the staff at Baylham behaved with care and compassion. They sought to involve my father in the numerous activities wherever possible and always treated him with dignity.

I visited Baylham regularly over 4 months - at different times and days. The standards were always high.

The facilities are excellent but most importantly the staff always treated residents with respect. They were very attentive to medical issues - such as the ulceration on my father's leg.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Baylham.
