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.

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 1.547 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Beauchamp Country House Care is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:
3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500
Target of 10.8 positive Reviews (54 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 10.8 Target = 0.093 , then divided by 2 = 0.047

I had the pleasure of visiting my mother last week and noted how well she is now being cared for. She has been at Beauchamp House for nearly a year and following initial hiccups and concerns, I am pleased to say that she appears well cared for and safe. The carers I met on my visit were very attentive. They talked to mum and checked she was comfortable. She has a lovely room which is worth the extra cost. She overlooks lovely well-maintained gardens which I know she appreciates.

Mum moved here 18 months ago & has been cared for with tenderness, respect & dignity until her death at the end of February. The staff genuinely care about meeting their residents' needs. Mum loved the gardens, the food & the activities in Beauchamp House - she was made to feel cherished as an individual by the staff. When we visited, it was lovely to relax with a cup of coffee with Mum in the Library overlooking the gardens - it felt like being in an exclusive hotel rather than a care home - & they use linen tablecloths (rather than wipe-clean plastic ones!), linen napkins, proper glasses etc at residents' meal times. We have joined Mum for meals here on several occasions & it was delicious & well-presented. When Mum died, the carer who contacted us was wonderful - we really appreciated the way everything was handled and also when we went back to Beauchamp House to deal with Mum's belongings, nothing was too much trouble for the staff & the manager. We'd happily live here ourselves!
