Reviews

7.9 Brookfield has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.885)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Brookfield is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Brookfield in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 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 4.528 for Brookfield is calculated as follows: ( (25 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.528

  • 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 3.357 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Brookfield is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 2.8 positive Reviews (14 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 2.8 Target = 0.357

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

My husband has Parkinson's. He has attended Brookfield the last few months. This has been a life saver for us. The flexibility of the home is wonderful if I am having a bad time I can arrange for him to have a day to give me a break. It is a credit to all staff the way its run.

My Mother-in-Law has been a resident at Brookfield for over a year now and really enjoys staying there. She is very well looked after and cared for, she is always clean and well dressed. Due to her dementia, she has had some challenging behaviour, also some illnesses and the manager and all the carers have been lovely, very supportive and treat her with a lot of dignity. They also keep us informed of what's happening and needed. I know her daughter (my wife) and Mother-in-Law are very happy at Brookfield and would highly recommend it.

This home was suggested to me for respite care when I was released from hospital following a short stay after suffering a nervous problem. I can say the staff and care i received helped to rebuild my confidence and strength with excellent food and kindness. I am still here but I shall be very sad to leave. The manager is excellent and has been a friend as well as carer and I consider all the staff as friends.
