Breffni Lodge has a Review Score of 5 (5.000)
The Review Score of 5 (maximum of 10) for Breffni Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.
a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Breffni Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 0 out of 5 from 0 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 5 for Breffni Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5
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:
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.
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.
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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Breffni Lodge is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
0 = 0
Target of 4.4 positive Reviews (22 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 4.4 Target = 0
When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.
Review submitted from a Website Submission by Dorothy P (Daughter of Resident) on Wednesday 18 November 2015. Relates to November 2015.
My mother-in-law (recently deceased), spent her last happy 7 months in Breffni Lodge Residential Care Home. The manager and her staff are just absolutely fabulous girls, going above and beyond their duties with genuine love and empathy for the residents. Her transition was made so easy for her and ourselves at an emotional time in our lives. She did not think she would every experience happiness again after previous experiences, but she did and was so happy and content, and settled very quickly. I experienced the excellent care first hand, as I called in unannounced early in morning, lunch time, late at night, and was always greeted with warmth and a cup of tea, bowl of home made soup, or big slice of pavlova. Weekly outings, birthday parties, music afternoons, animal visits, foot massages, weekly hairdresser, nail painting, sing-a-longs are all part of the routine of Breffni Lodge. There is always a smell of freshly washed clothes greeting you as you enter the front door. Everything is spotless and fresh, and the rooms are cleaned daily. The meals are of restaurant quality and every residents needs and wants are met. The staff have always time for a back-scratch, hand massage or hair combing, anything that comforts our loved ones. These girls do not do this job for money but out of love. Our family became part of the Breffni family, and we will miss the staff and residents now she has passed. We will never be able to thank the staff enough and we will miss them so much.
