Reviews

2.8 Braemar Lodge has a Review Score of 2.8 (2.750)

The Review Score of 2.8 (maximum of 10) for Braemar Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 2.8 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Braemar Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 2.75 for Braemar Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (9 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 2.75

  • 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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Braemar Lodge is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = 0

    2. Target of 2.4 positive Reviews (12 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 2.4 Target = 0

  • 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 Braemar Lodge

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
    1

My dad lived in this home for 2 years. He seemed to settle in nicely and was happy most of the time.
His room was ok but I would sweep it now and again as it wasn't done on a regular basis. I appreciate dad had dementia and would fiddle/break things but this is just a dementia trait.
After 2 years my dad was asked to leave this home as he was fiddling with things too much and causing too much damage! (Removing signs, picking the floor, moving the curtains etc.).
My family and I felt this home would be more suitable for the more advanced patient just sitting in a chair or in bed and not doing much else!! Dad had dementia and acted like a lot of dementia patients but the home couldn't handle this. Moving a patient like this is, I believe, detrimental to their health and caused dad to be extremely unsettled. I would take this into consideration when looking at this home if your loved one is mobile!
