Reviews

9 Breme Residential Care Home has a Review Score of 9 (9.034)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Breme Residential Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 25 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Breme Residential Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 8 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 4.367 for Breme Residential Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (136 Excellents x 5) + (135 Goods x 4) + (25 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 297 Ratings = 4.367

  • 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 4.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Breme Residential Care Home is based on 8 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.667

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

Mom became a resident at the beginning of March this year, 2017. Breme was recommended to me by a couple of people. Mom has settled in very well. Staff are all very friendly, polite and very helpful. Mom has dementia and it is peace of mind for my brother and myself to know she is in safe hands.

My mum is a resident in this wonderful care home. The staff are like family. Mum is not self-funding so her costs are paid by the local authority she is treated by the staff just like all the other residents which is reassuring. The staff keep me informed of nay concerns or changes that they may have. We as a family are truly delighted with mums placement here on all levels.

Mum appears to be very happy and content at Breme Residential Care Home. My family and I are made to feel very welcome when we visit, mum enjoys the activities that are arranged and the company of the staff. She does not seem to communicate with the other residents but this may be because of her condition. It would be nice if the television and radio could be set to the age group of the residents. Perhaps a video library of films and musicals. However, mum seems to have got used to "Judge Judy" in fact she likes it! I appreciate it may be a staff issue but it's a shame the residents are not using your lovely garden more often.

Kate Yates, senior pr officer at Breme Residential Care Home responded to this review on 11 Oct 2016:

Rebecca Rudge, Home manager said: “Thank you for your review and recommendation. I am so pleased to hear you agree your mum is happy and settled here at Breme and that you feel so welcome. In terms of our beautiful gardens, we do host garden parties and summer fetes and during the summer month's my team are often seen sitting outside with residents. However, we do find as the months get cooler residents are less interested in going outside and prefer to take part in activities in the lounge, but we are on hand if anyone would like some company in the garden. Our residents are a variety of ages so the programmes depend on who is watching that particular day as we do try to cater for all tastes.”

Overall mum is looked after very well, taking into consideration how difficult it must be. I have always found the staff very friendly and helpful and always treat mum very kindly showing a great deal of patience. They never fail to contact me if there is a problem or mum has a fall.

Breme made my dad's transfer from another care home a pleasant and welcoming experience of a time in his life that could have been very confusing. Staff are always so pleasant and friendly and always willing to help. They are also great with my dad, helping him out, making him laugh and ensuring he has company. Sanctuary have ensured that I remain up to date and I've appreciated their frequent communication through the post etc.

As a regular visitor on a daily basis Breme Residential Care Home is a friendly and caring home in which my mum is very happy. The staff make you feel welcome and part of the caring team which as a family helps us deal with mums daily struggles. I find staff approachable, kind natured and obliging. Breme Residential Care Home has become not only my mums home but our families second home.

Mum seems happy and cared for. I wonder sometimes if Dad didn't come most lunchtimes if Mum would be fed as diligently i.e. I am not sure if the staff would encourage and help her enough. They are happy to respond to any requests for help and are good with Mum. There doesn't seem to be much stimulus, although for Mum this would be difficult and possibly inappropriate but for those more able, there seems to be very few activities despite the list on the board suggesting there are.

Rebecca Rudge, Home Manager at Breme Residential Care Home responded to this review on 05 Oct 2016:

"Thank you for your review. The mealtime experience in our home is very important and it is lovely when family members take part in this. However, I can assure you that all our residents, in particular, the ones who need extra assistance are always supported and encouraged to eat at all times.

With regards to activities, our dedicated activities co-ordinator works hard to provide a stimulating and varied activities plan each week, which is shaped by what our residents like to do, including group and one-to-one activities. That being said we do encourage residents and their loved ones to provide feedback if there is something they wish to do, so if you would like to discuss this further I would love to hear from you, my door is always open."

I am delighted with the service and care. The staff are delightful and very helpful.

Mum was placed here by Worcester hospital. She settled in because all staff made her feel welcome and wanted from day one. Her room is light and airy overlooking the school field and nicely decorated, furnished and clean. Mum is always dressed in matching clothes and the staff make an effort to add a necklace or scarf to her outfit, which pleases her. Activities are good and we like to join in! The in-house hairdresser is an added bonus. Food is freshly made and presented nicely on her plate. It is a truly lovely, caring environment.
