Reviews

9.7 Bearwood House has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.670)

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Bearwood 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 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bearwood House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 16 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 4.67 for Bearwood House is calculated as follows: ( (155 Excellents x 5) + (69 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 227 Ratings = 4.67

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bearwood House is based on 16 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 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 5.4 Target Reached = 1

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

It is lovely to know that you feel at home here at Bearwood.

Mum is very comfortable in the above care home, her room is very light and airy and the decor very nice. The staff are very caring, friendly and patient and most of the other residents are friendly too.
There is an activity going most weekdays for anyone who wishes to take part and the atmosphere is comfortable and friendly.
I would definitely recommend this care home.

My mother-in-law is receiving excellent care, staff members have taken time to discover what she enjoys doing and ensure she has the opportunity to pursue these activities. The meals are cooked to a high standard with plenty of choice. She talks about how kind and patient all the staff are and despite being there for only 4 weeks, she refers to the place as her home already.

I'm glad you are happy with the care we offer your relative.

I have found this place to be the nicest place I could have put my Dad. The staff are amazing. Nothing is too much trouble. The care that they give is second to none in my opinion. The place is spotless, the residents are always clean and well looked after. The food is beautiful and plenty. The entertainment lady is amazing at what she does and arrange.

Thank you for your kind words, Leslie, we do try and provide the best quality of life possible for our resident's.

Mum entered the care home in February 2017 after we lost our father just after Christmas. We have found the home to be very good. The staff are lovely, friendly and caring. Mum took a while to settle in but is now happy and content. Events are varied and well thought out and give mum the stimulation needed with her Alzheimer's. I would certainly recommend the home to other people.

Bearwood House has been a most positive experience for my mother and myself. She has stated that she is very happy there and the staff are helpful and look after her. She has been at the home for 2 months. Mum looks well, is always clean and well groomed. She has stated that the food is good and like home cooking. I know that there is plenty of stimulation and observe the carers always treating the residents in a dignified and respectful way. The manager is experienced, hands on, open and approachable.
I am aware that refurbishment of the facilities is taking place but above all it is the quality of care that is given and the sense of community within the home.

Extremely positive experience during the time my grandfather has spent in Bearwood House and I'm sure this shall continue. He has improved drastic amounts, especially physically and we can now enjoy the time spent with him.

The staff can't be faulted and the way that they interact with and go the extra mile for the residents really does extend the experience beyond excellent. Bearwood House really does feel like a home and a new lease of life for my grandfather.

Thank you!

Positive atmosphere. The mjority of care staff are cheerful and attentive. Both senior care staff are excellent as is the manager. Meals are super and well cooked, presented nicely. Rooms are clean and well kept. Our only hopes for the future are:
An outlook of a garden view for residents, an update of the inner lounge and better access for visitors/relatives to take residents out (this is a minor issue only).
On the whole, a happy and loving care home.

Since my mother-in-law took up residence, my wife and I have found the staff to be extremely professional, caring and friendly. The environment is warm and caring, the residence is clean and wholesome, the food of a very high standard, and the residents are treated with the utmost respect. There are always stimulating activities for the residents and families are invited and encouraged to join in with many of them.
