Overview

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Beech Lawn 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 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Beech Lawn in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.466 for Beech Lawn is calculated as follows: ( (110 Excellents x 5) + (79 Goods x 4) + (15 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.466

  • 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 4.714 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Beech Lawn is based on 5 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 0.714

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

9.2 Beech Lawn has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.180) from 17 Reviews

My 93-year-old mother had been a resident of Beech Lawn for 2 1/2 years until she recently passed away. During that time the care provided was very good. The carers and domestics showed compassion and patience and were always prepared to engage in conversation and listen to her. We had been impressed with the home so much so, that my 93-year-old father has now taken up residence. He has told us he loves the attention the staff give him, he enjoys the food and that he feels safe there.

After a guided viewing of residential homes, I have felt for many months that I truly and thankfully, made the right decision accepting Beech Lawn above other offers. My father, like other residents, did not settle in immediately, but the manager and staff at Beech Lawn have done an amazing job to get him feeling settled and cared for! The manager and staff continually do fantastic daily duties to care for all residents of Beech Lawn. I would definitely recommend Beech Lawn to other people in need of an extremely good care home with excellent management and staff. Thank you all at Beech Lawn.

Since my brother has been in this home, he has always been treated with care and consideration. The staff although it changes are happy to talk to me about him. If I have concerns or if I need help (I am my brother's deputy) the staff and management are always helpful and professional.

My father has been at Beech Lawn since February 2017. He was admitted for respite for dementia as my mother was taken poorly.
However, his stay has now been made permanent due to circumstances. I am happy with all the care my father gets, he is treated respectfully and with compassion.
With dementia, he is in his own world, but I am sure he is happy and thankful to be at Beech Lawn.

A well run warm and welcoming home - the staff are friendly and helpful. The room my aunt is in is light, airy and warm, with staff popping in very regular intervals to check on her well-being. The meals are varied and well presented.

As a person who lives away from Ipswich when I come to visit my nan, the care that is provided for her is more than I could ever ask for. She is very happy, the staff are welcoming and the daily activities they provide for the residents is fantastic! I always leave feeling reassured that she is cared for and couldn't wish for anything more.

My mother-in-law has been in Beech Lawn since January 2017. At the time of her arrival, she was very anxious and extremely angry. The staff were all so caring and immediately put our mind at rest that she would be safe. In the following weeks, she had calmed down and was really settled. Activities are provided and the residents are encouraged to take part. We are very welcome to visit whenever we like. The staff are always happy and very approachable, they have total respect and consideration for their residents and families. We are so impressed with Beech Lawn and would recommend.

My partner has been at the home for 6 and a half years and this is my and her second assessment.

1) Improved activities, due to new staff and allows for freer movement - before she was unable to go out her relatives and I can now manage her outside to visit old haunts and friends who were unable to go to visit her!!
2) Meals are good and choice excellent.
3) I also feel she enjoys the music, the gardening and planting of veg and also flower arranging.
4) She feels safer here and is more relaxed to cope with her mental and physical problems.

Dad went to Beech Lawn for respite and stayed longer than first arranged. Very clean home. Friendly, attentive, helpful, informative staff and management. "Old fashioned" home but perfect for older residents- dad is 93! The only "niggle" I would have is that I was informed at the last minute of repeat prescriptions that were needed. Dad's first visit to a care home and had no qualms at all.

Eight months ago we selected Beech Lawn from several other care homes in the area because the staff seemed so friendly and caring. It took time for mum to adjust to her new surroundings, but she has settled in very well, joining in a variety of activities as much as she is able. She especially enjoys any music that's organised and being out in the garden in warm weather. We are relieved to know mum is well cared for in a clean and safe environment by a reliable, professional team and would not hesitate to recommend Beech Lawn to others.

I arrived earlier that expected to find mum happily working with the activity coordinator and another resident in making an advertising poster. Aged 94 we feel that it is important to maximise for the quality of life. Over the past year, we have been constantly impressed by the quality and caring nature of the staff. We are so grateful to all the staff at Beech Lawn.

I am very happy with the way my mother-in-law is looked after 24 hours a day. The staff are very friendly and helpful and answer any queries I may have. I think the staff are 'heroes' having to deal with the mood swings of the patients and their constant demands.
