The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Beech Tree House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Beech Tree House in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.3 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 4.667 for Beech Tree House is calculated as follows: ( (8 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.667
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 3.313 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Beech Tree House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 3.2 positive Reviews (16 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 3.2 Target = 0.313

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Kate W (Wife of Resident) on Thursday 22 June 2017. Relates to June 2017.
I've visited my husband 9 times in the last 3 weeks and I' sure that he is in the best place for him.
7 other friends/family members have also visited and are equally impressed by the commitment, warmth and kindness of all the staff.
The calm and happy atmosphere in the house is immediately obvious and we always receive a very warm welcome.
My husband went there from hospital and showed signs of improvement from the first day. He had more energy, was more alert and less confused.
He is very vulnerable emotionally and I was worried that he would feel lost and insecure away from home. To my great relief, he always looks very integrated and secure with every member of staff and the other residents.
Finally, being a small home Beech Tree House has a family home feel to it - not at all like an institution. The lovely, mature garden is easily accessible from the house
and is enclosed by an old stone wall so there is no risk of residents wandering off.
