This Review Score of 9.603 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.603 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 5 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

    The Review Score of 9.603 for Briarscroft Residential Care Home is based on 37 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 4.603 for Briarscroft Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (269 Excellents x 5) + (138 Goods x 4) + (13 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 421 Ratings = 4.603

    • 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 5 for Briarscroft Residential Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 37 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 37 Positive Reviews = 3.700 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (37 Positive Reviews ÷ 64 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.156 (maximum score = 1)

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1).

My husband has moderate stages of Alzheimer's dementia and has settled very well into Briarscroft Care Home. The facilities are modern and spacious. Activities are arranged frequently for the residents, but there is no pressure on residents to participate if they do not wish to. There are ample "quiet spaces", easily accessible for the residents. The focus is on their needs and staff are patient and flexible.The food is very good. My husband has recently suffered from UTIs (urinary tract infections) and the staff have responded quickly and obtained treatment from the GP.

The manager and her staff are providing first class care for my mother as she nears the end of her life (aged 100) My mother has been in Briarscroft since the home opened, and she has been very happy here.
The manager has made many improvements to the running of the home and I commend her for her hard work and for the way she has developed many of the staff. My mother's carers are doing a great job.

The care for my Nan, now that she has been moved from the more advanced dementia side to the more mild side has been very good. The staff are all very friendly towards the family and Grandma. The woman on reception during the weekend is very lovely. She is such a kind and gentle woman and she is very good with my Grandma as she can sometimes be difficult.

Briarscroft Residential Care Home is a caring and compassionate home where nothing is too much trouble. The staff are friendly and approachable and always willing to help.

We are really pleased we transferred Mom from another care home to Briarscroft Residential Care Home. She has been happier and healthier since she moved here. Her accommodation, food and general care is much better. There also seems to be more activities to which she sometimes participates in. So we are pleased with everything at the moment.

All the staff on all levels cleaners, care workers, activities, reception and management have been very supportive over the past few months when my nan has been in and out of hospital sometimes due to workload but manage really well. Briarscroft Care Home is a bright happy place and everyone is always made to feel welcome. Communication of "little" things could be better but this is a minor issue.

Good basic home care, nice staff who most of the time seem to care. Manager approachable, but at times systems due to management lack of understanding fall down hence costly. To move to excellent provision does need good interventions of staff learning and development, not just training, more coaching and mentoring plus trying different ways for example: "key workers" offered on website, but not provided.

My mother has been in Briarscroft Residential Care Home now for three years and I have no complaints about the way my mother has been cared for. I was a little apprehensive at first but this soon disappeared when I could see that she was being cared for properly. I do not have any concerns for her general welfare as I know that if there is anything untoward, I will be told immediately.

After a few months of faults the above home is now very good, the manager has sorted a great deal of things, she is someone who gets to the bottom of all problems and is very approachable. The staff she has do well 90% of the time but a few do let her down and it has a knock on effect. The chefs are good and staff are very kind to the residents and take good care of them.

Mom has now been at the home for six months and in that time she has improved in every way. She is very happy and contented, she has company and in her own words "nothing to worry about at all". She talks about her carers as friends and that is how they are with her.

When she was at home, old, frail and vulnerable, we used to hate leaving her but now, knowing she is in such good hands, we ourselves have "nothing to worry about at all".
We spent a lot of time researching care homes and we really found a gem when we found Briarscroft.

Overall very nice home, caring staff and good levels of care. My only criticism is the residents just sitting in a chair most of the day with very little stimulation. My mother has said on many occasions that she is bored. She is not the only resident to say this.

Emma Myers, Marketing and PR Manager at Briarscroft Residential Care Home responded to this review on 31 Dec 2015:

Thank you for review, we are really pleased that you would be extremely likely to recommend us. We are excited to have recently recruited a replacement activities person who is working hard to provide a variety of activities for our residents to enjoy both now and in the future. Best wishes Care Home Manager Rubina Choudhury.

My brother, sister and I were very worried about mum having to go into a home and we viewed several before deciding we wanted her to go to Briarscroft, from that moment on the Staff have been fantastic first helping us with the process and then looking after mum so well. Mum has improved significantly since staying here and she is always happy when I visit. I have had excellent dealings with all the staff who cannot do enough to make sure mum is happy and well cared for. Mum also has nothing but praise for the food.

Dad has only been a resident since the end of April this year and all the staff treat him with dignity and respect at all times. All the staff call him by his first name as we requested, they knock before entering his room and allow him what independence he wants, but are very mindful that he does need support and supervision with a lot of tasks now. I feel dad went into residential care at a key point in his journey with dementia and we feel totally supported with his care. He needed to go into hospital last week for a few days and the home were prompt in getting paramedics as required and keeping the family informed. They have also given him the support he needs on his return home.

Mum has been a resident for three months now, and I can say that the level of care she has received during that time has been excellent. I have always felt that mum is safe and well looked after. The home is always clean, warm and welcoming, and the food is very good and plentiful. The staff are cheerful and attentive and keep us well informed. We definitely feel that we made the right choice.
