Reviews

9.9 The Bakewells has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.925)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for The Bakewells is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for The Bakewells in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 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 4.925 for The Bakewells is calculated as follows: ( (111 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.925

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for The Bakewells 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 6.8 positive Reviews (34 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 6.8 Target Reached = 1

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

Mum moved into The Bakewells in October 2015 as she was no longer able to manage at home neither with myself and additional care helping on a daily basis. I was dreading the day but from the minute she moved in she has been stress-free, well cared for, happy and relaxed. It took about a week or so before she accepted this was now her home and since then she has settled and is a happy, relaxed lady. My brother and I can't speak highly enough of the care mum received. The managers are very professional and caring and one is our shining star, caring for our precious mum.

We live so far away from my godmother that it is the case our visits are more infrequent than some. However, it is a great comfort to know that she is in such good hands. Whenever we do visit we find everything to be excellent and we are kept fully informed at all times. Calls are answered promptly and carefully. We are delighted and grateful to have found The Bakewells and would have no hesitation at all in recommending it to anyone.

My mother was put into emergency care due to the death of my brother, her full-time carer. Bakewells was the first care home we visited to arrange for my mother's long term care. We were immediately impressed by the premises. Clean, airy, nice bright corridors with good size ensuite bedrooms. The home feels like a home, not an institution. All the staff have been very friendly and helpful both to my mother and other family members. At what has been a very difficult time. The other residents are very communicative and look very happy. We viewed other homes but they did not come close to Bakewells. We are very happy and contented my mother is a resident.

I have not much experience of care homes until now, and I feel sure my wife could not be in a better place. Based on regular visits to see my wife, I have noticed how clean and tidy everything is and how friendly and how supportive the staff and carers are if my wife needs help.

My aunt has been in this care home for approximately 2 years now. We (my husband and I) feel that without their care and attention, she would not longer be with us. The home is a "home" and the dementia unit, where she resides is modern, bright, warm and comfortable. She has her own en-suite bedroom, with flat screen TV.
Lovely garden views from her window and a team of wonderful carers to meet her needs. The sitting room allows auntie to move around freely, double doors open onto the garden (with pet rabbits) and there is a kitchen where snacks can be accessed (tea/biscuits).
