  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 6 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 4.754 for Brimington Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (158 Excellents x 5) + (40 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 203 Ratings = 4.754

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.

    The 4.667 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Brimington Care Home is based on 6 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.667

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

Following an illness, Mum was admitted in a severe state of delirium, which later was diagnosed as dementia.
She was treated with dignity and respect at all times and has settled very well.
When we first looked at this care home, we were very impressed by the cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff.
We chose this care home for the staff, we loved that several generations of related staff worked here.
The standards of cleanliness continue.
There is never any unpleasant smell - it smells clean.
Mum enjoys the food, looks forward to her meals.
There is always staff in attendance and they are all very diligent and caring.

I could not be more impressed with the service provided by this care home so far. Looked at several and this was the only one who showed a genuine interest in my aunty, wanting to understand her condition and her likes/dislikes. Yes, it's not brand new and sparkly but it has a warmth we didn't find anywhere else. My aunty is settled, was making friends with other residents in the lounge yesterday evening and seems settled already. Thank you to all the lovely staff we've encountered so far, from the lovely lady who showed us round to the manager for assessing her so quickly and to the guy who lovingly unpacked and put away all of her things last night - you have made a difficult time so much easier xx

Doesn't matter when I go could be different days or different times, the staff and care workers are always the same. Nothing is too much trouble for them or how the patients are treated. My husband is always clean and nicely dressed and I am so pleased that he has somewhere his is safe, looked after and cared about and in a place which is very clean and welcoming.

I looked at several homes whilst trying to find my father a place and Brimington Care Home really stood out. Whilst being shown round, it struck me how many questions were asked about my Dad himself, and it seemed as important to the staff to make sure it was the correct place and could care for him properly, as it was to me. I felt (and still do) 100% confident that he will be well looked after. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and they always find time to soothe my Dad's anxiety and have a chat to family to update how everything is going.

Can't praise the home enough, after all the worry, it's priceless to have found somewhere where I know he can be happy and well cared for.

When we visited Brimington Care Home unannounced, we knew we had found the right place. The day mum moved in she was distraught. I felt so guilty but was reassured that I wasn't the first relative to crumble in tears.
Although initially, mum was tearful on our visits, I was reassured that she was settling in really well.
We are now 2 months down the line and mum, always a very private person, is unbelievably spending more and more time in the lounge mixing with the staff and residents.
She is very happy and receives excellent standards of care and her physical health has improved. She has very little communication but the staff interact with her really well. It is really great to see the interaction between the staff and all the residents, a lovely atmosphere.
A massive thank you to the care staff, for me to be very happy leaving my precious mum in your hands with not a care in the world speaks volumes. I am now my mum's daughter again, not her carer and it feels good!

My mother went into 'Brimington Care Home' in August 2015. During her year there, she was treated with loving care and dignity. she has always stressed that she did not want to go into a care home, but from the first day of entering, she settled in and was cared for in an excellent way. my mum died in the care home on the 5th August 2016 and right up to the end, the care never altered.

We were relieved when Mom went into Brimington Care Home as it's only down the road from where she lived. She's still able to recognise the area when she goes out, which must be a comfort to her as she still remembers things. She's been resident there for almost a year now and seems largely settled. She's treated with great respect and is able to maintain her dignity. Despite showing some challenging behaviour at times, she is skillfully dealt with by the staff and always returns to her cheerful self with their careful handling. They do a great job overall.

It takes a certain kind of person to care for people with such sensitive needs and there are lots of lovely people at Brimington Care Home. There is always a cup of tea offered to visitors, and the meals that come out of the kitchen look beautiful, freshly-cooked and wholesome. The activities co-ordinator is always looking for new things to stimulate the residents and she is lovely with them. Various singers and artists visit the home regularly. Great job.

My visits are generally made over a weekend as I live 2 1/2 hours away. I have always found mum to be happy and content and not distressed in any way. She responds well to the staff and obviously likes them as do they her. The staff are fully aware of mums needs and cater for her as an individual. Being the weekend I rarely get any feedback from staff as to her well being but know if there were problems they would be in touch.

My mother was a resident here for over three years. I found both management and staff to be both reliable and co-operative. Care was tailored to need and administered with professionalism and with great respect for my mother's needs. Communication was prompt and very effective. The care during my mother's last weeks of life was nothing short of superb, and the support and help that was given to me I shall ever be thankful for. This care home may not have the nicely manicured gardens, but it does possess something far more important. A staff that show genuine care and concern for the residents. My sincere thanks goes to each one of them.

We are very happy with the home, we are not always able to visit as we live away and it is so reassuring knowing my auntie is safe well cared for and happy. The home has a lovely friendly atmosphere and we are always made to feel welcome and offered refreshments. A real gem of a home.

I was very happy to let my mum come here upon our first visit. There is such a light lovely friendly atmosphere compared to others we had viewed. The staff were very helpful at helping mum get a place. Although mum had a few settling in problems, they were soon helped and calmed down by staff. Mum seems happier the longer she's here.

The consistent care, compassion and kindness shown to my husband by the staff at this home has enabled him to settle in and relax in his new surroundings. That kindness has been extended to our family - we are encouraged to visit at any time, and all our questions and concerns have been dealt with immediately. I highly recommend Brimington care home.
