Overview

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Beechfield Lodge 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Beechfield Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.764 for Beechfield Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (112 Excellents x 5) + (30 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.764

  • 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 4.583 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Beechfield Lodge 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.583

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

9.3 Beechfield Lodge has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.347) from 12 Reviews

Carers were cheerful and caring even when my father was grumpy and uncooperative or demanding. They managed his medication and personal care needs with dignity and coped with his moods with warmth, patience and humour. The care home was always clean and comfortable and the food varied, tasty and well presented. Staff very caring.

My mother was a resident at Beechfield Lodge for almost 3 years before her death at the age of 99 in January this year. Whilst she lived there I can only praise everyone for their care and kindness. Mum felt happy, safe and cared for. Unfortunately, my sister and I were disappointed and saddened that no one from Beechfield came to Mum's funeral. It seemed as though she was forgotten about now she was no longer there.

Sharon Bollesty, Home Manager at Beechfield Lodge responded to this review on 05 Apr 2018:

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a positive review.

We are sincerely sorry that due to the requirements of the home, both the activity coordinator and the catering assistant were not able to attend the funeral. However, a staff member did attend on behalf of Beechfield Lodge but I fully understand if you were not aware of this on the actual day. I would like to reassure you, your Mother was very highly thought of and this was evident of the lovely messages wrote in our condolence book.

I hope I have addressed your concerns satisfactorily, however, if you require further assistance please do not hesitate to contact me.

I've looked a number of care homes in the area but Beechfield Lodge was the best. The staff are very friendly and professional, they work very hard and do an amazing job. All the residents look happy and the food is lovely, my mother is eating more here than she did at home.
The staff keep up informed, contacting you if there are any issues.
There are no restrictions on visiting call in anytime, the home is bright and airy and roomy. The residents are safe and well looked after.

Being faced with the situation of your loved one having to move into care is probably one of the hardest things a family has to go through, however, after looking around at numerous care homes, we knew from the moment we stepped into Beechfield Lodge that this was where our dad would be happy. The building, the staff, the management and atmosphere is truly fantastic. We are so happy we were lucky enough to find Beechfield and have never looked back since. We can't recommend them enough.

My aunty was thankfully cared for here until she sadly died last month. The home is spotless, welcoming and well run. My aunty's room was of a very high standard and was always kept immaculate, as was she. There were always activities for her to be involved with. I am grateful that she enjoyed living at Beechfield Lodge and she was well cared for, included and safe. The meals were of the highest standard as is the running of the home. Staff and management are approachable, friendly and professional. It is a lovely home and I am so grateful I found it. Others should follow their example.

Although Dad suffered with Dementia, he was very happy and was always encouraged to join in activities. He was spoken to by name by all staff and always treated with respect.

The food and choices are excellent and every room is clean and tidy.

Without doubt a top care home, well run with caring staff.

Having to make the decision to place my wife in a care home was probably the most difficult decision of my life, but knowing that she is being treated safely and empathically in a dignified manner has helped me make this transition as easy as possible. All staff are well trained and are keen to answer questions and if they don't know the answer they will find out or guide me to the relevant person. Care is tailored to the individual and all staff seem to be interested in the residents. Facilities and apartments are of a high standard and cleanliness are faultless. I can honestly say that the care my wife is receiving has exceeded my expectations.

My mother moved into Beechfield Lodge in October 2016 and we have been delighted with the expert care and consideration offered by the cheerful staff.
The manager inspires conscientious dedication and we have been impressed by the excellent medical attention, cleanliness, interesting social activities and delicious, well-balanced, home-cooked meals.
We are highly satisfied and confident, that my mother is in the safest of environments and would highly recommend Beechfield Lodge.

I can only praise all the staff who are so caring, compassionate and kind to my husband and also my mother (she died December 2016). My husband is very settled and happy in Beechfield which despite wishing he was home with me, I know that he is being cared for and loved by everyone. This is very comforting to me.
Thank you to everyone for making the final stages of my husband's life a good one for him. The only thing I would pick up on is that I am providing extra food each day to boost his calorie intake and this I feel should be met by the home.

I have always been very pleased by the care mum has been given. This home in my opinion has a very high standard and because of this I would recommend it to anyone. I have recently mentioned such to a friend of mine and now she has a relative living in Beechfield Lodge settled and happy.

My wife spent 2 months reviewing every care provider for our Mum's complex need after strokes and heart attacks in 2013 abruptly stole her independence and mobility.
Having visited those on short list, there was only one we would trust with her care.
Nothing has changed a total belief our family made the best possible choice with Beechfield Lodge for Mum
The building is as close to home as she can get.
The staff, both personal care and management is as good as it gets when you can't do it yourself.
This really is a credit to the caring profession.
Thank you on Mum's behalf.

Making the hard decision that your parent would be best places with a 24/7 care environment is something most never wanted to do. However choosing Beechfield has proven to be one of the best decisions we could have made. Mum has mixed dementia and has been here since October. She is now very settled and the most relaxed and un-anxious I have seen her in a long while. The staff are all great. They have a caring nature and understand the needs of those residents with dementia and how to work with them. They have regular meal and break times, regular activities. Mum has her hair done every other week at the hairdressers. Her flatlet is kept clean and tidy as is her laundry. She is helped with her personal needs & kept clean, tidy & dressed nicely. She has a key worker who gets to know her well and all the carers and team leaders get to know and interact with the residents (and family members) in a family friendly way. I am relieved to know that when I come away my mum is safe & happy.
