Overview

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Beaumont Park Nursing and Residential 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 31 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Beaumont Park Nursing and Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.484 for Beaumont Park Nursing and Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (225 Excellents x 5) + (107 Goods x 4) + (28 Satisfactorys x 3) + (5 Poors x 2) + (3 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 368 Ratings = 4.484

  • 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 Beaumont Park Nursing and Residential Home is based on 11 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 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 9.2 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.

9.5 Beaumont Park Nursing and Residential Home has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.484) from 31 Reviews

There never seems enough staff around to care for the residents. Some of the care staff are not friendly, do not smile, talk or even say hello. All the nurses in navy uniforms are extremely busy but are very good. There is never any management on site to talk to. My aunt has been at this home for nearly two years and I am constantly complaining regarding her care. Surely a care home should be care, not just a business?

Beaumont Park was the last home for my much-loved father. We wanted to make sure that he was in a home where his individual needs were met, where he was safe and where he felt comfortable. Having considered a number of homes, we decided on Beaumont Park and couldn't have been more pleased. The home is extremely well run by a superb team of dedicated staff who made my father feel special and cared for his every need.

In addition to this, the team had a sense of fun and went over and above duty to provide a comfortable and loving environment for his last days.

The care in the home is excellent and the staff are rushed off their feet. The nurses are brilliant. Unfortunately, the food in the home is below standard, the quality of the food and the quantity given is unacceptable.

Susan Sim, Home Manager at Beaumont Park Nursing and Residential Home responded to this review on 31 Aug 2017:

Many thanks for your review. Food is a key aspect of each and every resident’s day and it is essential that the mealtime experience is positive. Every 6 months menus choices and resident preferences are discussed with the current residents to plan for season change. There are currently two options for all residents on the menu at each mealtime and discussions are underway to establish feasibility of a third option.

It's a nice place, very nice here.
Sometimes I am down but on the whole feel better.

Beaumont is full of the most caring, thoughtful, understanding and loving people (i.e. staff) all under one roof.
To my mum, making a heartbreaking outcome to me and my family so much easier to come to terms with.
Nothing is too much trouble. My mum thinks the world of them all and so do we.

My mother went into residential care in October 2016. I can only say that what just about makes it bearable is the kindness and treatment I've seen from all of the staff. The fondness they have for my mother is evident and equally her fondness for them.
Activities is only lower marking due to the fact my mother declines to join in a lot so I don't know if I've seen them all.

My mother-in-law is so much better physically and mentally since she moved into Beaumont Park. She had been seriously ill in hospital and before that had been unable to do much for herself - her legs were very swollen, she wouldn't sleep in a bed, kept setting fire to her microwave 3x! had falls and now we know that she is safe.
Her legs are much better, she sleeps a lot but her bed is a profiling bed and she is very content. When she will let the staff get her up she now joins in and talks to people which she wouldn't do at home.

My mother has settled very well at Beaumont Park. She has a lovely room with her own toilet which allows her to remain independent day and night and keeps her dignity. The food is home made and she really enjoys this. The annual BBQ is always very generous to residents and families with a warm welcome. We have been pleased she is able to display her photo's on the walls. Mum enjoys the chapel service in the conservatory and now goes across to trinity methodist chapel. She begins to join in more and more activities and enjoys the visits in her room from activity staff. She loves the staff keeping her room clean and clothes washed and hung up. She calls it a 5 star hotel. After a lifetime of hard work this is a reward indeed.

Very friendly and caring staff who go the extra mile. You get the feeling that they are passionate about providing personal care and attention and with the relationships we have built there it feels like family care. They are trusted and highly competent and provide a wide range of social activities. Overall very pleased and could not ask for a nicer home so close to our family.

My husband has been at the home for nearly eight years. In all that time I have never had any reason to be concerned with the care he has received. They have adapted to all his changing needs and always treated him gently and with dignity. There is not a huge turnover of staff, there are many faced still there today as there was when he arrived. They have always made me feel very welcome and listened to any concerns I may have for his illness. I would definitely recommend them.

I have found the reception staff very helpful, the nursing staff very approachable and caring with regard to my mums problems with her caretaker and other problems moving her about. The carers are very patient with feeding her as she cannot now feed herself. The enablement team encourage her with playing Bingo and games and singing. She is very contented at Beaumont is always clean and well catered for.

There are some lovely people who work here, from the 2 activities ladies to the laundry cleaning and maintenance people. Lack of time is an issue, 20 minutes to wash, dress, hoist and take a person downstairs is not long enough. More time would allow better teeth cleaning and finger nail cutting for example. Event days are well organised e.g Christmas Day, and Mother's Day. It would be good if there was a larger communal room to accommodate all residents at one time. There are 2 church services a month. Visiting at any time.

Since mum moved into Beaumont Park she has blossomed. The staff are so good in the way they support and care for her, and most importantly she loves it. The whole family have witnessed many times the professional but considerate concern for her well-being. We have been contacted promptly when mum has had a few health issues. The nursing staff have made observations quickly and when necessary brought a doctor in to ensure mum was given the appropriate medication to assist with a quick recovery. The stimulation of bowling, music, trips out are giving her a happy life, and she loves the food! The office is efficient and always ready to answer any queries we may have. Thank You.

My mother has been in Beaumont Park since June this year, she is in early stages of dementia. During her time there I have found all the staff including the manager to be caring and always have time to chat to both myself and my mother. It is hard having to make the decision to place mum in care however, knowing she is safe, clean , warm and cared for makes it a little easier for me.

My wife was previously in a care home where the care she was given was very poor, she moved to Beaumont Park 1 year ago. The transformation from someone on end of life not eating or drinking much at all hardly responding and in bed 24 hr a day. To someone eating and drinking putting weight back on alert and responding in her wheelchair going out in nice weather. This is due to all of the staff, cleaners, carers, nurses, all members of staff with the manager at the helm, what more can I say, 5 star.
