Reviews

9.4 Bryan Wood Care Home has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.381)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Bryan Wood Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bryan Wood Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 8 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 4.492 for Bryan Wood Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (64 Excellents x 5) + (48 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 118 Ratings = 4.492

  • 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 4.889 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bryan Wood Care Home is based on 8 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 9 positive Reviews (45 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 9 Target = 0.889

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

My mother-in-law was in respite care. The manager came out of her way after work to assess her. She was professional, caring and extremely helpful. All the staff go out of their way to make the residents feel valued and appreciated. Their care is exemplary. They act promptly, identifying medical issues and having them treated.

The food is excellent, my mother-in-law enjoyed it and she likes her food. The rooms need upgrading but they are clear - serviceable. Since the recent decorating of the communal areas are bright and definitely have benefited. The staff also communicate well with family and also take the time to ensure that we were coping.

I would recommend the home to anyone and would hope that Mum can go back as necessary.

My mother is receiving excellent levels of dementia care at this home. The food is good, staff are excellent, including the manager and admin team.
It is in a beautiful part of Huddersfield. Residents are treated as individuals and it is very 'homely' in an old-fashioned but important sense of the word.

My aunt was admitted to Bryan Wood after being diagnosed with dementia and placed in the 'gentle dementia wing' which I found to be a very welcoming and warm environment. There is a lovely secure outdoor space and the home is in a beautiful setting, surrounded by mature trees.
More than anything I was bowled over by the staff and the level of compassionate, patient care they provide. Without exception, I was extremely impressed by every member of staff I encountered. Nothing was too much trouble ....cups of tea and biscuits were offered at all times and there was a cheerful and upbeat atmosphere.

If I have one small criticism it's that on occasion I found the staff a bit slow to pay close attention to minor medical issues......sore knees requiring extra pain medication or skin conditions for instance. However, if these issues were raised they were attended to immediately and there was never any question in this regard pertaining to more serious issues.

I would score this home as 9/10!

My mother is very happy at Bryan Wood she is well looked after has a nice room with on suite facilities.
My mother is not a person who mixes a great deal although she will talk to anyone, she likes to stay in her room reading her magazines or books.
My mother is pleased with the food and the meal times although she has never had much of an appetite the in house doctor gave her a special drink to make her eat more she likes the drink because its sweet but not convinced it makes her eat more.
Overall as long as my mother is happy she will continue to stay at Bryan Wood.

A very welcoming atmosphere. Residents very well cared for even though some of the residents can be quite nasty with the staff. They never take offence and always treat them with great dignity.
