Reviews

7.5 Beech House has a Review Score of 7.5 (7.541)

The Review Score of 7.5 (maximum of 10) for Beech House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Beech House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.38 for Beech House is calculated as follows: ( (35 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 71 Ratings = 4.38

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 3.161 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Beech House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6.2 positive Reviews (31 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6.2 Target = 0.161

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

The Beech House care team have been very helpful, kind and understanding about the specific needs of a wonderful gentleman who I helped to move in.

The friendly and homely house welcomed him from day one into their activities and started to find out his likes, needs and favourite foods too - there are wonderful aromas of home cooking every day.
The home manager is approachable about all matters so I recommend a visit if you are considering this home for someone you care about.

The home is secure and good value for money and well managed. Care staff work very hard and are caring and kind. They are always welcoming to visitors. Some areas of the home need updating and décor refreshed/updated. Some windows need replacing. Activities are good but need improving to accommodate residents with advanced dementia. The home helps and encourages residents to maintain outside interests, although sadly this has stopped due to relatives level of dementia.

Mum is cared for and well presented. Mum is sometimes difficult and yet staff deal with her with humour and kindness. She is happy there but cannot actually tell us what she does - due to the dementia! Her room is well cared for and she is dressed in her own clean clothes. She can be difficult and staff appreciate this and share the information with us, they let us know when there have been issues, and what these issue are. Food is good and as a visitor I have been offered lunch when I arrived at an inopportune moment. Mum is keen to come out for a while and have a ride around but actually wants to go back there if we bring her to our house. Dementia is dreadful and the team at Beech House do their very best to make it as painless as possible.

My mother has been treated very well and all her needs seem to be met. It is good to see her sitting in the lounge more often rather than in her room. Care needs to be taken when washing clothes as some tops/cardigans seem to be washed on too high a setting.
