The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Bramwell Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bramwell Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 7 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 4.592 for Bramwell Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (117 Excellents x 5) + (70 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 191 Ratings = 4.592

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 4.376 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bramwell Care Home is based on 7 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 18.6 positive Reviews (93 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 18.6 Target = 0.376

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

My grandmother 94 has been a resident at Bramwell Care Home for just over a year now, having lived alone for over 27 years previously. Moving into Bramwell Care Home has been the best move she could have made. Having had dealings with a few other residential homes in the past my family and I are extremely happy with my grandmother's health and wellbeing. She seems happy and content joining in with some of the many activities. The actual home itself is not showy but there is always a warm welcome from all members of staff, which when leaving a vulnerable member of your family is most reassuring.

My mother has been at Bramwell Care for the last 18 months. I cannot recommend the home highly enough. Mum has been treated with the highest degree of care and dignity I could wish for. Staff were very attentive and informing me of any changes to her condition straight away.

Mum was made to feel at home from the moment she arrived. She is so much happier now she has 24/7 care and other people to talk to. The staff are always kind to mum and us when we visit coffee and biscuits. They always have time to listen.

The home has for the past year, provided a first class caring environment for mum. Staff are well organised by the management and have been consistent in the good quality of their care.

Rooms are cleaned to a high standard and the meals are tasty and well presented. A really nice touch is the provision of daily menus detailing the wide choice of meals.

My mother did not want respite care. Bramwell provided that care to a very high standard. The home was exceptionally clean. The staff were always very helpful and kind to my mum. Her care needs were studied and they provided the specific needs.

The whole experience was excellent for carers as well as residents.

Mum has been at Bramwell for just over two months now, we were dreading how she would be after we had left her there, but the staff each and every one of them spoke to her as if she was special, she loved this, it makes her feel important. The staff definitely bring the best out of her. Mum seems so much happier being at Bramwell than she was before, she is entertained daily with a range of activities. She loves the food! The good and kitchen staff are also delightful.

I would just like to say how my mother-in-law is well cared for at Bramwell. The Manager arranged a wonderful party for her birthday, for all service users and family. It's so nice to be able to take my wife on holiday and not have to worry, as she knows my mother-in-law will be ok.

My mum moved to Bramwell Care Home in March. Staff are brilliant, it's clean, well maintained. My mum is 92 years old, she is very happy and she is being very well looked after. All the staff cannot do enough for the residents and are always at hand if residents need their assistance.
I have had no cause for concern on how this care home is being run, by management or by the staff. I know my mum and if she wasn't happy then I wouldn't be, but she is happy and at 92 years of age, that's what you wish for with your relative.

As a family we feel our mum has been well cared for with dignity and respect. The care staff are kind and gentle with her and do their utmost to meet her varying needs. The office staff are very approachable, welcoming and helpful. The recent change in care home manager has resulted in a warm, happy and more relaxed atmosphere. It's good to hear laughter.

My father is a resident at Bramwell Care Home. He has lived there since June 2014 and in that time he has been treated extremely well in most areas. The home is very clean and most of the carers are very kind and efficient. It is great that the activities member of staff plays dominoes with my father. The food is nutritious but could be more varied. We always have peace of mind that he is well cared for.

My Mother became a resident of Bramwell in February 2015 at the age of 95. She required twenty four hour care and an environment providing safety and stimulation in her life as she had developed dementia and was becoming confused, which was a serious concern.
In the year she has been in Bramwell the care they have provided has been excellent and she has found a new lease of life. The support of all the management and staff not only to my Mother but to myself in a diffcult personal situation over the past few months has been exceptional.

I cannot offer anything but praise for Bramwell.

The staff are so caring and helpful. A new manager has just started and she is great, jolly and full of energy. My dad needs to be feed and it's never a problem. It's clean and smells nice (many don't). There is regular food snacks to stop the residents getting bored and they can walk around freely anytime.

My Mum has lived at Bramwell for over 18 months she has always been well cared for. Her room is very nice and homely, the staff are great with Mum and she tells me that the food is good. I am very happy to go on holiday knowing Mum is well cared for. May I take this opportunity to thank all the staff at Bramwell.
