Overview of Review Score

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 31 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Little Bramingham Farm in Google's Search Results – more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 24 positive Reviews in the last 24 months.

Detailed Breakdown of Review Score

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. 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 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.779 for Little Bramingham Farm is calculated as follows: ( (296 Excellents x 5) + (68 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 371 Ratings = 4.779

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 24 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. 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?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews; 3.00 points for the first Positive Review, and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 24 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 48 months. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Bramingham Farm is based on 24 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3.00 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 5 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 24 Reviews ÷ 5 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Average Rating:  Average rating  4.8 out of 5

My mother was in respite care for 10 days at Little Bramingham Farm. I cannot speak highly enough regarding the care that my mother received from all members of staff during her stay.
My mother is quite demanding due to her condition, but the carers did everything possible to calm and reassure her,
as well as reassuring me. They had patience and showed the utmost kindness, so much so that within a few days Mum was quite settled and content.
The home itself is clean, comfortable, bright and welcoming. It really is a shining example of what a care home should be, giving care which is second to none, and giving relatives the reassurance that their loved ones are looked after with care and dignity.

Bramingham feels like a gentile country hotel where the residents just happen to be old.
All staff are lovely and the food looks delicious.
My mum, who had been very apprehensive, settled in immediately.
Rooms all slightly different.
Does not feel like a nursing home.

A genuinely delightful place for mum to enjoy.
Everything, from the caring staff to the gardens, could not be better.
Several choices of where to read, relax or chat and a care team of people who simply can't do enough to make mum comfortable.
11 out of 10 if that is possible!

First impression is more homely than 'care home' with a friendly welcome from the staff. Each room is decorated differently to the others to give a more individual touch for residents.

Good spaces for residents to relax in and various sitting rooms for visitors who prefer more privacy when visiting.

My

father has settled in well since moving in, in June 2018.

My mum has been in respite for 7 months now and I feel like she is flourishing. She has put weight on and all the interaction from staff and other residents has done my mum the world of good. It is a wonderful home and I would highly recommend it.

My mother has been a resident of this home since June 2018 and I cannot fault anything about Little Bramingham Farm.
My mum has settled in very well and that is all down to the wonderful staff/management who all go "the extra mile" to ensure the residents are happy.
My family are exceptionally pleased
and happy with Little Bramington Farm.

My aunt has been at Bramingham Farm for nearly 4 years now. She loves it here. My first impression of Bramingham Farm as that it has the feel of a guest house, not a care home and my opinion has not changed in 4 years. Lovely staff and management. They simply can't do enough. Brilliant

Following a traumatic and frightening illness, I can't describe how good it feels to wake up to each day, knowing I am in a safe place, well cared for and with help always close to hand. This has been my experience this past year and as a fellow resident put it 'you can't get better than this', sentiments
with which I fully agree and for which I am personally deeply grateful.

My mother has been at Little Bramingham Farm for eighteen months now and is settled and happy there. The care given by all the carers is excellent. Mum has encountered a few medical problems which have been quickly addressed. The staff have been adaptable to her changing needs and have always communicated
well with me. Her room is light, airy, well decorated and always kept clean. The surroundings are well maintained and add to the general ambience of the home. Mum joins in a range of stimulating activities and outings. The food is freshly prepared by the cook and several of my relatives including myself have enjoyed eating with Mum in the elegant dining room in the home.
I am very happy that my mother is able to spend her days in such a caring and well-organised home. I highly commend the staff and management for their care and professionalism and would be happy to recommend Little Bramingham Farm to anyone looking for a residential home for their relative.

I do not live in the locality and whenever I visit I feel welcomed and cared for myself! I am confident that the care given is kind and efficient. This is greatly reassuring knowing that my relative is safe and being well looked-after. I always look forward to visiting Little Bramingham Farm - it is
like visiting a country hotel rather than a care home. Congratulations to all concerned. When asking my relative about the food she says 'it's all right' ... I hope that Luton is proud of this wonderful care home.

My mother has been in the home two years in May - she is very happy there and tells us the staff are very caring and kind to her which is clear to see when visiting mum.

We think the facilities there are good and the surrounding area outside gives the appearance of being in the countryside.

Well

done Little Bramingham Farm.
