The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Beechcroft Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Beechcroft Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 3 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 4.73 for Beechcroft Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (98 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 126 Ratings = 4.73

  • 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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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 3.724 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Beechcroft Care Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 13.4 positive Reviews (67 registered beds ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 13.4 Target = 0.224

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

My aunt had been in hospital for about a year and her condition had deteriorated significantly. She was reluctant to eat, drink or take medication and was uncooperative with the nurses. It was clear that she was both unsettled and unhappy and lost interest in radio, TV and reading. She received little stimulation or encouragement. Within a few days of arriving at Beechcroft Care Home all of this started to change for the better! The caring and involved staff encouraged her relentlessly and absolutely nothing was too much trouble. Every situation was handled calmly and with the active participation of the staff she has now regained an amazing amount of ground. We are so happy to see the aunt we know now return to us!

My husband is currently being looked after on the nursing side of the home he's been in there since October 2015.

All the staff are all very friendly and helpful from the nurses, carers, catering, domestic and co-ordinator.

I feel I can always approach the nurses and carers if I have any problems or concerns. The carers always show a lot of care and dignity when assisting my husband. The nurses are always there if I need to talk or I am feeling upset when my husband is not having a good day.

I was placed in Beechcroft Care Home in September 2015 after having had a triple by-pass. I found the care I received excellent, I was in a pretty sore and emotional state after major surgery and welcomed the care and kindness I was shown. I was transferred to the residential part in October 2015. Once again I was very happy to be placed there temporary as I couldn't return to my own property. Awaiting a place in a nearby sheltered accommodation, I moved in, in January and can honestly say I was a bit reluctant to move as I had received such care and kindness. However I need to gain my "independence" but would gladly go back if I had to.

My mum has been in three respite homes, and has never settled, neither have I as mums carer. Mum has been here nearly five weeks and the change in her is amazing. The staff in the home are absolutely wonderful, they are kind, cheerful, sensitive and they give 100% to their job. The home in itself is spotless, and the atmosphere is friendly and there is always something going on for the residents. Beechcroft nursing home has given their all to make my mum feel at home.

My husband was moved to Beechcroft from Warrington hospital. On 17th November 2014 and received excellent care from all the staff for the last days off his life, my family and I are grateful for all the care they gave. He finally left us on 6th December. Thanks to all the staff he went peacefully with all his family around and his pet bobby by his side. Thank you to you all .
