Reviews

9.5 Barchester Wimbledon Beaumont Care Community has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.529)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Wimbledon Beaumont Care Community 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Wimbledon Beaumont Care Community in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 12 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 4.529 for Barchester Wimbledon Beaumont Care Community is calculated as follows: ( (87 Excellents x 5) + (42 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 140 Ratings = 4.529

  • 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 Barchester Wimbledon Beaumont Care Community is based on 12 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 9.8 positive Reviews (49 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 9.8 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.

Every time I visited my grandmother during her respite visit to Wimbledon Beaumont, she was very happy. She would often be in the activities lounge and being looked after by carers at meal times. Food was good, I even had dinner with my grandmother. Staff were friendly and the matron very good.

I am at the beginning of my stay at the home having been in my family home for many years. My change to assisted living has been much less painful thanks to the care, help and kindness of the staff. Not only is the care food but there is also a friendly atmosphere which makes it feel more like home than an institution. When visiting some other potential care homes I have felt that they are less geared to the needs of the individual.

I have found a great deal of empathy from some carers and particularly when my wife fell and was taken to St. Georges Hospital, outstandingly supportive and very often lightly attentive, supportive and pleasant. The staff and management are always approachable and a pleasure to talk to.

I am nearly 98 years of age and have lived very happily at the Beaumont for eleven years. My room is my home and has everything I need.
My only worry is the security during the early evening as when the receptionist leaves at five o'clock anyone could walk in for several hours until the excellent night security begins. One of my sons-in-law too mentioned this several times.

Thank-you for your review. I am aware that your comment on security relates to the ease of access through the front doors after the receptionist has left. We are changing the front entrance doors and finalising the details with the appointed contractor at present and will ensure that your concerns on security are addressed.

Staff are excellent and will do anything for you.
Home bright and clean.

Thank you for your valued feedback.

I feel safe and secure in Wimbledon Beaumont and enjoy the privacy of my flat, which is light and airy, but also the ability to share meal times with other residents in the dining room.

The staff are considerate of my needs, giving me help with washing, bathing and dressing every morning. My flat is kept clean and tidied. I can call on night staff if I need them.

I am given the freedom to come and go as I please and the staff respect my independence but help with tasks I have difficulty with.

As to whether I would recommend Wimbledon Beaumont would depend on very in the financial availability of the person concerned and how would I know that!!
I have found over the years that I have been visiting friends and sometimes the answering of the call bell has been somewhat slow and in some cases, I have ended up trying to find help.
I have always found the staff including the manager very helpful and welcoming to visitors.

I am disappointed to read the comment on answering of call bells and I shall be discussing this comment with Matron and staff. The nurse call system produces electronic records which are reviewed regularly to ensure that the well being of residents is not compromised.

My wife and I both aged 92 moved to the home in August 2015. We purchased an apartment in a block adjacent to the retirement home. We can live as independently as we wish and use the facilities of the home as and when we wish or need to, these include a restaurant and various activities of the home including help with shopping. As long as we have a car we benefit from a car park pass of the apartment block and a garden adjacent to it.
