Reviews

7.6 Brockshill Woodlands has a Review Score of 7.6 (7.612)

The Review Score of 7.6 (maximum of 10) for Brockshill Woodlands is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4 out of 5 from 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Brockshill Woodlands in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.6 out of 5 from 2 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 4.029 for Brockshill Woodlands is calculated as follows: ( (18 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 70 Ratings = 4.029

  • 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 3.583 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Brockshill Woodlands 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.333

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

My mom has been taken care of at the care home for over a year and always seems OK and looked after. She can be a challenge as suffers from dementia, so the staff seem to cope well and understand her needs.

Although the home looks tired and in need of further renovation. The staff are very dedicated, caring and couldn't do enough for you. During the last few weeks of my mother's life, the staff were brilliant in dealing with my mother in a caring and dignified manner.

First impressions, the home was tired but this is in no way reflected in the care. The manager is enthusiastic and caring and spends time with the residents talking to them, calming them, making them feel at home. She also takes time with the carers to explain what is happening to their loved ones. The atmosphere in the home is good and all the staff work well together and interact well with residents and family, treating us all with respect.

At first we were very cautious and unsure what to expect from a care home. We had struggled to provide my father all the care he needed. The whole idea of a care home was alien. Brockshill Woodland formed a trusting and bonding relationship with my father instantly. It was brilliant. The whole dynamics changed and I was able to see my father improve in his everyday needs and care. I enjoy going to the care home and being part of my fathers life as a son again. Brockshill Woodlands have a refreshing approach and have helped both my father and my family.

My mother in law has spent just over two weeks at Brockshill whilst waiting for a room at a home that we had chosen prior to the Brockshill stay.
The Brockshill building is not very inviting and we were very apprehensive when we first visited, but all of the staff are excellent and cannot do enough for all of the residents that are there.
The staff are very well trained and all do their very best to keep the residents happy, which is not always easy.
Caring is not an easy profession as there are so many different problems to address to many different characters, but the staff at Brockshill do their very best and we had no complaints.
We never found mother in law in a dirty or unpresentable state and although she is not a big eater, she enjoyed the meals she had. Mother in law (although not always sociable) settled in very well and was sad to leave the friends that she had made, but we had already committed her to the other home which was more suitable for her needs.
Thanks to the Manager all staff for making my mother in law so welcome.
