Reviews

8 Briarmede has a Review Score of 8 (7.989)

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

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Briarmede in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.833 for Briarmede is calculated as follows: ( (40 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 3.156 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Briarmede is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.156

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

Myself and my sisters would like to thank the staff at Briamede for making a hard decision we were dreading, into a easy journey. From the first visit, when nothing was too much trouble to explain, to our mother moving, they made it into an easy journey. Every visit, the staff have time to come and speak to us and our mother speaks very highly of the care she receives and the staff. The home and her room is always clean and well kept and our mother eats every meal which is a recommendation in itself. We leave after every visit feeling at ease.

I would just like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Briarmede Care Home for the event they put on a month or so ago which my granddad attended at the home for day care. He sang along with the staff with the wonderful entertainment which was provided from the home and the buffet they put on was just out of this world. The home smelt lovely when walking in the greeting I got from the staff was homely and professional. If it came to the point where I couldn't look after my granddad at home with my I would consider this home firstly due to the way the home runs and how homely it is. My granddad came home talking about the wonderful day he had at Briarmede Care Home. The home is always spotless. (I would 100% recommend this care home).

I would just like to say I am extremely happy with the care provided from Briarmede Care Home in Middleton. My mother is being cared for at Briarmede. The staff will bend over backwards to help you in anyway possible to ensure you are getting the correct treatment which is expected in any care setting. My mother could not be any happier with the care that has been provided since moving into Briarmede Care Home. Myself and my family would recommend this home to anybody's family members, as the home is like home from home. The home is investing money into the home and modernising the full care home which is coming along nicely with slip-proof flooring and lovely homely wallpaper. All the bedrooms are undergoing big makeovers with new bedding, new curtains, new flooring and lovely wallpaper which are making my mother's bedroom look lovely. The staff work extremely hard with my mother to ensure her stay at the home is a lovely place to be and a happy environment to be in.

Our much loved Mam was resident in Briarmede for 4 years and sadly lost her 8 year battle with Alzheimer's at the end of November 2015. During this time the Briarmede staff became part of our family helping us to manage this very challenging illness. This is a care home where staff care and aren't afraid to show this to residents and family members alike - everyone gets a hug when needed. Throughout Mam's Alzheimers we worked as a team and as her end of life approached we continued this way making sure Mam didn't die in hospital but in the place that had become home - Briarmede. We were supported by the staff, management, GP and the District Nursing Team to make sure that Mam passed away with love and dignity. Staff fed and cared for our whole family we were welcomed at any time of day or night, we slept in her room so she was never alone, We are eternally grateful for the laughter, tears and memories we were able to grab in that last week, little things we will treasure forever.
