  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 4.271 for Brookholme Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (16 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.271

  • 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 3.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Brookholme Residential Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125

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

The team at Brookholme have looked after my Mum for over 4 years...up to and including her passing earlier this month. They have been absolutely fantastic! Their care, compassion, patience and sheer dedication ensured my Mum spent the last (confused) years of her life in a safe, caring environment with people who treated her with dignity and respect. What more could anyone wish for?

I am so grateful to every single member of staff who supported my Mum...and me and my family... during the last weeks of her life. Truly exceptional and personal care - thank you!

I find the staff very friendly, whenever I visit mum. Mum is happy and content at the home and enjoys the food. The staff work hard and overall I have no complaints. If I do raise a concern it is usually dealt with or acknowledged.
The only area I would like to improve is encouraging mum to participate more in activities or 1-1 time, particularly as I can't visit as often as I used to. The management are very good and are always willing to discuss any issued/updates OK.

A clean, warm and comfortable care home. Most staff are friendly and approachable. We are pleased activity co-ordinators are recently employed to stimulate the residents and make their day more enjoyable. Mum enjoys the food and says it is good. I would recommend this care home as one of the better ones we have seen.

Mum is being well cared for at Brookholme Residential Home. She has mobility difficulties but is encouraged and supported to walk, giving her essential exercise. When medical problems have occurred prompt arrangements for care from the local GP surgery have been made.
The staff are friendly and approachable and there is a relaxed atmosphere in the home.
Mum's room is light and airy and the lounge areas are pleasant. She enjoys the food on offer, which is plentiful, and there is sufficient choice to overcome any dislikes.
