a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Birch Trees Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info
b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.75 for Birch Trees Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (9 Excellents x 5) + (3 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.75
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 3.227 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Birch Trees Nursing Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 4.4 positive Reviews (22 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 4.4 Target = 0.227

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Marilyn D (Daughter of Resident) on Thursday 11 January 2018. Relates to November 2017.
My mother was in Birch Trees for just over one year, until her death in November 2017. I cannot fault the way that she was cared for. All staff (from the nursing staff to the cleaners, the chefs to the owners) were exceptionally professional and friendly, and when her health faltered during her last few weeks were constantly caring for her to make sure her last days were as comfortable as they could be. If ever a problem arose I was informed immediately and on every visit, there was always a member of staff available to talk to if I had any worries.
As a family, the option of placing Mum into a care home was not one that we wished for. But Birch Trees made the decision and transition easy and it is a decision we do not regret. It was like a ‘home from home’. I would not hesitate in recommending Birch Trees or indeed placing another member of my family there.
