Reviews

9 Burleigh House Residential Home has a Review Score of 9 (9.005)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Burleigh House Residential Home 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 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Burleigh House Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 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 4.8 for Burleigh House Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (48 Excellents x 5) + (12 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.8

  • 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 4.205 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Burleigh House Residential Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 8.8 positive Reviews (44 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 8.8 Target = 0.455

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

Dear Adrian. Many thanks for your kind words. It's our privilege caring for your Mother and we are delighted that you are happy with the care she is receiving. Many thanks again. Mihir.

Absolutely fantastic place with wonderful, caring staff. We were so worried when we couldn't care for dad at home any longer but Burleigh House is great. They make all the family feel at home. I really like it, that we can visit at any time, so we can see the home as it really is.

Many thanks for your comments. Its been a pleasure caring for your Father and having the support of such a loving family.

My mother moved here in August 2016 and has settled very well. The staff are wonderful and very skilled. I am a previous carer and the standards of the home would be what I would look for if looking for job vacancies. Nothing is too much trouble and they always contact you if they are worried or if something occurs with my mum. The food is lovely and the chefs give the residents a choice. I have started to attend residents/ family meeting which is really well run as they give you every detail of what is happening in the home. They run activities every day and sometimes take the residents out on trips. I could not have found a better place for my mum.

I am of the opinion that this home delivers over and above the required levels whilst it is fair to say that my father does not "enjoy" being there he knows that he is in the best possible place with the 24-hour care etc.
