Reviews

9.9 Bryony Park Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.929)

The Review Score of 9.9 (maximum of 10) for Bryony Park Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bryony Park Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 13 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 4.929 for Bryony Park Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (145 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 156 Ratings = 4.929

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bryony Park Nursing Home is based on 13 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). 13 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.

Bryony Park have been looking after my mother for almost 12 months. The standard of care has been exemplary and far exceeds the care has been exemplary and far exceeds the care she received at her previous care home. The accommodation is meticulously clean. The staff are responsive at all times. They encourage carers to contribute to the overall well-being of inmates.

I am happy that my mother has found a place at Bryony Park.

Bryony Park provides a clean, safe and caring environment for my mother and the other residents. All of the staff are both professional and approachable, and provide a high standard of care. The home is also decorated and maintained to a very high standard. My mother has been a resident here for a number of years and we have never had cause to regret our choice of care.

My mother has been a resident for over 6months and feels this is a second home. I feel I can trust my mother to them entirely and they keep me informed of all details. I feel this has removed the stress levels I used to have over her care.

I decided on this home as my mother in law resided here 2 years ago, the standard has remained high on a consistent basis and other than meal times I have access all day, at any time to suit family or work patterns.

Thank you all so very much to all the staff.

My father has been a resident at Bryony Park for about 18 months and I've been very impressed with the standard of care he has received. All of the staff are very friendly and professional. Activities are organised on a regular basis for the residents to enjoy as well as trips outside in the minibus. The cleanliness of the building is exceptional and my father loves the food. Overall, I have no complaints at all and would highly recommend this nursing home.

Since my wife became a resident, I certainly have no need to complain in any way with regard to her care. She certainly seems to be happy here and is treated with great respect by all concerned. Staff cannot do sufficient for my wife and I certainly do not need to worry about any care she receives here. The home is always clean and tidy and everyone concerned here do their tasks in a very professional manner. It is nice to know that my wife is in 'safe hands'.

My wife has been attending Bryony Park Nursing Home for more than 2.5years now and I cannot praise the facility too much.
The level of care, compassion and empathy towards the clients and families is both remarkable and brilliant.
Having been in the position of having, out of necessity, to place elderly family members in numerous care homes in the area, I can categorically state that this is the best home by far, that I have seen.
The professional level of management, administration, nursing, care, activity facilities, cleaning and quality of food provision is exceptional and it is little wonder that this is a gold star rated facility.
It is my considered opinion that this home should be used as the standard to set for other homes in the area and possibly a training base for staff from other homes to improve their skills, although I'm not sure if this would possible.

My wife was moved into Bryony Park Nursing Home to receive palliative care. Since moving to Bryony Park the level of care and support has been outstanding. The staff are extremely professional and supportive. My wife is now in a much more comfortable environment.

My mother fell in love with this nursing home as soon as she walked through the front door and was greeted by the senior nurse and manager. She felt it was the perfect place to spend her last days it was comforting to know she was in a loving environment as we live overseas, we have since returned to spend more time and are impressed each day with the carers and nurses attitude towards the residents.
I couldn't ask for a better result thanks to CQC quality audits which we used to pick this home.
