The Review Score of 7.3 (maximum of 10) for Bymead House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

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 4.167 for Bymead House is calculated as follows: ( (2 Excellents x 5) + (10 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.167
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 3.167 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bymead House is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3
Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.167
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 David H (Son of Resident) on Tuesday 9 May 2017. Relates to March 2017.
Mum spent two years as a resident at Bymead having had to leave her home when the level of care required made it no longer feasible for her to stay at home. Besides having had several TIAs and quite severe arthritis she also had vascular dementia. Bymead were welcoming, professional and caring from the get-go. Mum was, probably like many making this transition, initially resistant and uneasy at being in a home but the staff were engaged and attentive without being invasive or assertive: they wanted to make sure Mum felt as relaxed as possible and also made sure that her family were kept informed of her condition as she settled in. It is notable that Bymead does not have significant staff turnover so both the carers and nursing staff can build meaningful relationships with residents and the home's management also make a point of staying connected with residents and their families. Throughout Mum's stay and her ultimate passing at the home, this team were always caring and considerate.
