Bramble Lodge has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.910)
The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Bramble Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bramble Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 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 4.833 for Bramble Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.833
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 3.077 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bramble Lodge is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 13 positive Reviews (65 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13 Target = 0.077
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Jo G (Friend of Resident) on Sunday 18 February 2018. Relates to January 2018.
My friend who had dementia was resident at Bramble Lodge for about six months. I cannot praise too highly the level of care she received from all the staff. Her personal needs were catered for and adapted as her health deteriorated.
The gardens are delightful and provided interest for my friend who was a keen gardener when I took her around them in a wheelchair.
The food is good. The programme of activities is very good and when my friend was no longer able to participate she received one-to-one interaction instead.
When my friend died, the staff did all they could to make us feel cared for as well. We were not pressured into clearing my friend's room, it was all taken care of for us.
This is a lovely home. Thank you
