a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bradbury Home in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 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 4.917 for Bradbury Home is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917
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:
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.
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.
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 3.139 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bradbury Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.139

Our mother has only been in Bradbury Home for a few weeks and we are very impressed with her care and all the facilities available. She is steadily improving in health and well-being as a result. There is a very nice peaceful ambience and the staff are extremely pleasant and helpful.
As soon as we walked through the door on the first occasion, we knew that we wouldn't want to look any further for a care home.

Lawrence has been the Home Manager at Bradbury Home since February 2007. Lawrence started his career in care after working in the hospitality field for many years.

After starting a training course with Lambeth College he took a placement in a south London Home run by The Salvation Army and progressed up to his present position through training and application. He has 17 years experience and intends to continue with his work that he sees as his vocation.
