Reviews

8.4 Little Bramingham Farm has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.428)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Little Bramingham Farm is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 3 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 3.7 out of 5 from 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • 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 4.778 for Little Bramingham Farm is calculated as follows: ( (29 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.778

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 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 Home 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 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.

    The 3.65 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Little Bramingham Farm is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 5 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 5 Target = 0.400

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

Reviewer Connection to Little Bramingham Farm

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User

This is a 1st Class Care Home and I wish I had found this when first searching for a home for my mother who is 94 years of age. I had to move mum from another care home in Dunstable back in November 2015. The manager and the staff are excellent and will help you with anything if you have a problem or issues. The home is very well kept, clean, bright and friendly. Always a warm welcome. Lots of activities, entertainment and outing are available for the residents which is good to see, and which I have also attended when possible.
The staff are all helpful and friendly.

What a revelation and lucky find this home is. Having experience of three other homes in this region and one in Exeter, I have some idea of how a care home should be. Somewhere that I walk into and feel relaxed and unworried about her care at all times. I Know that Mum can be difficult, gets up in the night (having no concept of time), has a cup of tea with the night staff, is encouraged to go back to bed and never remembers the next morning but always assures me that she “had an excellent night’s sleep”! Mum has been a resident for 12 months having initially gone in for respite care. During that time, I’ve observed that all staff are excellent, caring, supportive and whilst responsive to calls, never seem rushed or under pressure. She loves the food and the choices with each meal of hot cooked or cold food if she wishes. I feel that because the attitude is constant caring and weekly individual reviews, not just of my Mum but her needs and all aspects of her room, she is safe and happy.

I have looked at many homes and price to Little Bramingham Farm. My father was in a nursing home. The standard of care at Little Bramingham Farm is excellent. The home/staff are excellent, supportive, caring and care for the residents in a caring dignified way. They are certainly overworked as the residents needs change often for the worse, due to age, but the staff cope. They work without breaks but they are always pleasant, patient and helpful. There's always a warm greeting whatever the day or time. The only concern I would have is food, during the day there is a good wholesome meal. Breakfast is cereal or toast never bacon, eggs or a bacon sandwich. Tea time is poor, soup, toast pate, scrambled egg, yoghurt, ice cream. The meals are often cold. There is no offer of supper and although you may be told the residents can ask, residents often do not like to. Tea trolley is at 7pm after that will not be until morning.
