Reviews

9.2 Barchester Edgbaston Beaumont has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.240)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Edgbaston Beaumont is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Edgbaston Beaumont in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.24 for Barchester Edgbaston Beaumont is calculated as follows: ( (44 Excellents x 5) + (41 Goods x 4) + (19 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 104 Ratings = 4.24

  • 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 Edgbaston Beaumont is based on 9 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 5.6 positive Reviews (28 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 5.6 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.

I've found this care home to give to my wife. From my experience, I've found this to be the best care home and my wife's relations endorse this.

Thank you so much for your review, it is very much appreciated and we are so happy that you enjoy the garden and activities.

My daughter came to Beaumont care home over six years ago.
She has great care and kindness from carers and nurses.
The cleanliness is perfect and staff so very polite and helpful.
I wouldn't want her to live anywhere else.

Thank you so much for your wonderful positive comments. The pleasure is all ours and we will continue to deliver care of the highest quality to your Daughter at all times.

The Beaumont is a small and comfortable care home with good staff who have looked after my mother well.
There are some potential areas for improvement such as consultation with relatives over care plans but overall my experience has been satisfactory - good in difficult circumstances.

Thank you so much for your positive comments. Your point about improving our Care Plan Review process has been noted and I can assure you I will make improvements to the process and the experience for you. Many thanks

The disruption on the ground floor has been long and noisy.
I am very sad that the lovely open lounge and corridor (which is now dark and dismal) have gone.
We have experienced a lounge like this in another home and the residents were very cut off.
One of the reasons for placing my husband here was the open, sunny aspects on both floors.
Still feel that some members of staff need better training in handling wheelchair-bound residents.

Jennifer Bloor, General Manager at Barchester Edgbaston Beaumont responded to this review on 02 Jan 2018:

Thank you for your comments. The refurbishments we are currently having are vital for the building and will improve the environment considerably once completed. I appreciate that at times the work has impacted on the environment and for that, I can only apologise. We are half way through now and the final outcome will enhance our lovely building further. The wall was built purely from a Fire Risk Assessment point of view as regulations change we have to ensure we can keep our Residents healthy and safe and the new "wall" now meets regulatory requirements. As far as training is concerned I will work with our Learning & Development Team and Health professionals to develop and support any staff who need guidance to improve their techniques.
Kindest Regards

Before choosing the Beaumont, we 'checked out' and visited four homes. I was apprehensive at first as I have never stayed in either a nursing home or respite care before.
I have been so impressed I've been at the Beaumont for respite on two separate occasions.
The staff and manager are very friendly and welcoming. Meal times, the chef and staff came and enquired regarding my preferences, regularly.
If I was ever in any difficulty the staff were obliging.
As I was a younger respite user (the only young resident)
The environment is very clean and restful. Housekeeping and domestic duties daily routines and respectful.
Maybe have more social activities for the younger clients.
