Reviews

9.4 Beechy Knoll has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.402)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Beechy Knoll is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.4 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Beechy Knoll in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.402 for Beechy Knoll is calculated as follows: ( (65 Excellents x 5) + (55 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.402

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Beechy Knoll is based on 9 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 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 was a resident at Beechy Knoll for 6 months. She sadly passed away on 2nd October.
Mum received excellent care whilst at Beechy Knoll. The staff and management there are amazing. Patient, kind, genuine, caring for the residents and family who visit. I live in France so could not visit Mum as often as I liked, but when I rang, the staff would always take time to reassure me and ensure I had a full update on Mum's health. They knew her!!

When entering the premises you immediately get the feeling of stepping into someones home. It has a welcoming, homely feel to it. What it lacks in modern decor it makes up for 10 fold in a welcoming, positive environment. The staff do an amazing job and are so patient. There are creative activities, treatments for residents, shows and lots of social activities to keep residents active and occupied. The food is also good and residents are monitored at all times.

I would not hesitate to recommend Beechy Knoll as a care home for your loved one.

Thank you for this review, we are pleased you took the time to complete it. We strive to ensure that people are welcomed into a friendly atmosphere, the management team will always make time to listen to friends and families and ensure that people who live, visit and work at Beechy Knoll are made to feel valued and that any issues or concerns are dealt with to a satisfactory outcome for all.

My mum stayed at Beechy Knoll for 1 weeks respite and loved it, So much that when the time came to go into a care home she wanted this one. The staff are brilliant and the food is good, I know as I've stayed for tea. There is also always something going on for them to do.

Thank you for this review Pat, it has been our pleasure to welcome Mum and her family into the Family at Beechy Knoll, we were particularly grateful for the family input with our garden fete, we would not have managed without the assistance of your family and Mum who enjoyed herself helping out on the tombola stall and your family member who ran a stall for us, we really appreciate your help.

My mum and sister went into care together. The care they are receiving at Beechy Knoll is first class. Nothing is too much trouble for the lovely, friendly staff. I am confident that my mum and sister are receiving the best of care.

Beechy Knoll has a really good atmosphere.

You don't feel you are visiting an institution but a big, happy family home.
Any issues are dealt with immediately and feedback is excellent.
Residents and family meetings are held regularly.
Mum says she "likes it here" - something that reassures me no end.
All thanks to the new management.

Thank you Robert, for this excellent review, it is important to the team to hear from families. The comment about a big family home is especially welcomed, I will be sharing the review with the team. Please continue to raise any issues or concerns.

Visited a lady whom has been our family friend from "the war days", whom we call our aunty. Visited every day for five years. We picked Beechy Knoll Care Home as this is next door to our home. We never looked back to this day (8th July 2017) when my aunty sadly died.
The magnificent new manager made brilliant necessary changes. Wonderful, caring, dedicated staff. Very clean, excellent meals, nice approach to building etc.

Thank you for this review, it was a pleasure looking after this lady - she will be sadly missed, as will your visits. Please pop in for a drink if you are passing, it would be nice to see you both.

Rather dismal when first visited. There is a new manager and it's different altogether happier environment, happier staff, cleaner - in fact, it's spotless. A pleasant, bright place to be. My sister is very happy and contented there. Her appearance is much improved due to the better care.

It's really good to know the residents are happy and families feel safe leaving their loved ones in our care, thank you for your comments.

Up till October 2016, I was so very concerned about management and staff issues. A new manager was appointed, we have had meetings and spoke at regular times. I feel as though I have been listened to and now feel more than confident that all past issues have been resolved and look forward to the future, sharing and being totally honest. I now trust the manager 100%.

Mum has been in Beechy Knoll for approximately 18months. Mum was not happy, we also were not impressed with the care or service provided. However, in the past few weeks, everything has improved. There is still a long way to go but thank you to the Manager. Our mum is happier now than she has ever been living in the home.
