Barnfield Care Home

Barnfield Close, Heath Road, Holmewood, Chesterfield S42 5RH

Barnfield provides nursing care and prides itself on the care and attention given to residents and their families. Carers and nursing teams concentrate on getting to know residents, enabling them to look after physical needs and more importantly delivering what emotional support residents and their family need.

Choosing a care home is one of the most difficult decisions a family member or advocate can make and Barnfield Care Home is here to help families through that decision, through the move in and beyond.

Excellent care is the key objective of each of the team members. Caring for those who can no longer look after themselves is what they do best, with an approach that takes into account that although there will be aspects of daily care and activity that residents could not manage at home, carers continue to encourage independence wherever possible - thus enabling residents to make the most of what they can do on a daily basis.

Overview

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Barnfield Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barnfield Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 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 4.518 for Barnfield Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (50 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 83 Ratings = 4.518

  • 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 3.506 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barnfield Care Home 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 7.8 positive Reviews (39 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7.8 Target = 0.256

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

8 Barnfield Care Home has a Review Score of 8 (8.024) from 7 Reviews

Placing our Dad at Barnfield has been the best thing we could, as daughters, do for him. He is looked after and happy in his surroundings. The staff are lovely. When activities are taking place they take photos for us so we can see and be assured Dad is still having some quality of life. We feel comfortable leaving our most treasured Dad in the care of the staff at Barnfield; knowing he will be looked after and safe. I cannot praise them enough. With our Dad, they have been excellent.

I was looking for somewhere for respite for my Mum and visited Barnfield Carehome. The atmosphere was very welcoming and the staff were obviously very caring. I decided that she would be happy there. She has been there a few weeks and has been treated with respect by the caring and helpful staff. There are a lot of activities organised for the residents who are encouraged to participate. There is a variety of food on offer and it is a lovely idea that there is a snack table for residents to help themselves. There are various different lounges and also a conservatory. There is a small garden which is well maintained and enjoyed by the residents. My Mum enjoyed being taken into the garden to get some fresh air. Thank you to all the staff for the care they give.

As my Mum has only been in the home for six months, my brother, sister and I have all agreed that her progress in her mental health is excellent. The staff, who mum relates to, have really helped her with her personal care and rebuilding her confidence.

Management and staff always seem available for both residents and visitors. The home seems to be well involved with the local community and arrange lots of days out and interactive activities. Everyone seems very friendly which projects a nice environment. The rooms and general decor would benefit from a refurb as they seem a little tired and dated. I also think that Barnfield Care Home would benefit from having its own kitchen to prepare meals.

My brother has Behcets Syndrome which has left him partially sighted and with autism. He had a stroke at the age of 50 which left him unable to walk, also involuntary hand movements and slow speech. All the staff at Barnfield Care Home understand my brother's needs and treat him with dignity. He is always dressed smartly and his room is very clean and comfortable. The staff interact with my brother which keeps him stimulated and happy. I had concerns for my brother when he left hospital but the quality of care my brother receives at Barnfield Care Home have made me happier. He is really thriving and happy.

After 7 years of caring for my mum at home, I was worried at my mum going into long term care. As it turns out the excellent staff at Barnfield made the transition easy, our family are stunned at the kindness, quality of care, cleanliness and genuine "being in your own home" atmosphere provided. From my initial "out of the blue" drop in to check out the place, the homely feeling of the place shone through and still continues. As well as excellent care being given to my mum staff go out of their way to address the feelings and needs of relatives too. To sum up if I were in need of care, this is where to come.
