Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Beechwood House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 2 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 4.806 for Beechwood House is calculated as follows: ( (29 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.806

  • 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 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Beechwood House is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 2 positive Reviews (10 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 2 Target = 1.000

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

9.1 Beechwood House has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.056) from 3 Reviews

My Aunt was placed in Beechwood under emergency needs, she was in poor health and unable to care for herself. She was greeted with open arms and made to feel that she is the important person that we, her family believe she is. From day one, they have had open and candid communications with me in regards to all her needs. The care and respect that all staff give to the residents is commendable. We have had a rough time getting her advanced care plan put in place and the owner was tenacious in getting the plan to be correctly written and placed on file. We love that the meals are all prepared by the staff, fresh, tasty and homemade what else could you want to bring that feeling of home to your loved ones. In a time of life when your loved ones need full-time assistance, it is wonderful to know that people with big hearts are there to make their days happy ones. Thank you to all the staff we are so grateful that we have you there with my aunt we couldn’t have found a more caring home.

Helena Brown, Manager at Beechwood House responded to this review on 14 May 2018:

It is our honour to ensure their wishes, needs and care is planned in partnership with the residents and their family.

My mother was in Beechwood House Care Home for about 2 years until her death recently. In that time she has received excellent care from a very dedicated group of staff who have cared for Mum with great professionalism and great personal attention to her needs, dignity and care.
Over recent months when Mum became more and more needy, the management and staff of Beechwood were exceptionally caring and made her last journey a very comforting one for both our mother and ourselves. I could not recommend more highly this home - with its relaxed homely atmosphere and very dedicated staff.

Helena Brown, Manager at Beechwood House responded to this review on 25 Apr 2018:

Thank you, it has been our privilege to care for your mum and we send our condolences to you and your family. We will miss her smile and sense of humour.

My wife and I visited several care homes when her mother passed away in May 2014. We found Beechwood House which was close to our home in Hadfield and had a room available.
As soon as we entered Beechwood House we were met by friendly and caring staff who made it their business to welcome people and help them feel "at home." We had no doubt that this was the place for my father-in-law to live as soon as we had been shown around. Suffering from Alzheimer's and unable to look after himself alone, he had lived a peaceful and quite sheltered life looking after his wife in their latter years.
At first he found the new situation confusing, but what was so good at Beechwood was the lack of regimentation. Residents are always encouraged to be themselves - getting up in a morning and going to bed at night at a time which they prefer rather than having a set routine.
It was very clear from the start that we had made an excellent choice for him. The staff were wonderful - showing care and consideration at all times - nothing was too much trouble. When my father-in-law received visits - which was usually daily - the very first question from a member of staff was "Would you like a tea or coffee?" which would be brought with a smile and - if the member of staff had time - a chat.
Sadly he passed away soon after Easter 2015. We had discussed as a family how his end of life care would be handled and these wishes were shared with the Manager at Beechwood. We arranged with my father-in-law's GP to have in place a DNR arrangement - and their wishes were followed by staff when the time came a few days later.
Beechwood House is a small care home with no more than 10 residents. Staff are caring and thorough. There are no unpleasant smells or elements at the home. Our family feel privileged to have been able to help my father-in-law spend his last months at such a lovely caring place.
