Reviews

9.6 Bowood Court & Mews Care Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.580)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Bowood Court & Mews Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 38 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bowood Court & Mews Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.58 for Bowood Court & Mews Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (297 Excellents x 5) + (121 Goods x 4) + (28 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 450 Ratings = 4.58

  • 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 Bowood Court & Mews Care Home is based on 14 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 11.8 positive Reviews (59 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 11.8 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.

We chose Bowood Court because of its varied activities programme providing stimulation for Mom with dementia. So far we have not been disappointed, it is very good. The purpose-built building is perfect, and although the current refurbishment programme is still very much 'work in progress' it can only result in it being better. All the staff that I have come into contact with are friendly, helpful, professional and approachable and know that Mom is in capable, caring hands.

Generally, my grandmother's care has been excellent. There have been a few issues due to a shortage of staff on a few occasions, but this has now been addressed. The staff are caring and work hard. Nothing is too much trouble and she classes this as home. We visit all the time and are always welcomed. There are big plans for the year ahead and we look forward to being a part of it!

My mother has been at Bowood Court for only a couple of weeks but already, we are very pleased with the way she has been welcomed by all of the staff, which has helped her enormously during this settling in time.

Unfortunately, she has also tested their emergency service when she had a fall in her room. Again the care and quick response from the staff members was very reassuring for us as a family. Well done Bowood.

Mum lived with us for five years, so it was really difficult to face her going into residential care after an illness. Things couldn't have gone better though as she is really happy there. She is much better physically and mentally. I go most days at different times so I really see what it is like. The food is plentiful, appetising and freshly cooked, and there's a great range of the activities! Best, though, we have found the care by all the staff outstanding: friendly, compassionate, motivated and professional. One of them said they treat my Mum as if she was their own and that really sums it up. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I love going and finding her with sparkles of glitter on her face from crafts or that she has been out for a visit somewhere interesting. Or with a new colour of nail varnish and a nice hairdo. She has made good friends. It is great going to work and even on holiday, knowing that she is so happy and well cared for. She loves it there. We are totally impressed.

My mother has been a resident at Bowood Court now for over 2 months. She came from recovery from hospital with a broken hip. The care the staff have given her has been amazing. She has already put on weight, smiling and enjoying life. The entertainment and activities are first class. The managers and staff are so caring and keen to help giving the residents so much dignity and comfort.

My mother came to Bowood Court and Mews on 3 May 2017 after going walk about, and social services got involved.

She had, for a long time, said she felt unsafe at home and had not been able to look after herself properly.

On arrival, she liked it here. Her room was freshly decorated, the facility was clean and tidy and the residents were all happy.

She is now better in herself and says she hopes she can stay here because she's got friends and feels safe.

I feel that she is better, health wise, and very well cared for. Neither she nor my brother have any complaints, and we feel Bowood and the staff here have transformed our lives.

Many thanks.

My uncle has been a resident in Bowood Court for almost a year now. The difference in his health and well-being is exceptional. Bowood Court provides the security and stability he so desperately needed whilst the excellent staff give him the encouragement and confidence to join in, and be a part of the Bowood community. The staff genuinely do care and are very kind and patient and now happiness is a realisation in my uncle's life again.

My mother has been at Bowood Court for 6 years approximately and the care has always been well above average. It is a very rare occurrence for her to have to go to hopsital because they look after her so well, making sure she eats and drinks well. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending friends to send their relatives here.

My mother has been a resident at Bowood for at least 12 years and during that time I have always found the staff to be friendly, helpful and very efficient. A friend of the family who is an agency care worker recommended Bowood as the best in the area so we took her advice and placed mum there and it was the right decision. My compliments to all of the staff. Thank you.

In my experience, my husband has, and still is being supported in all aspects of his health. The care home manager and all her staff are very supportive of his changing health and feel that he would not be suitable to be moved anywhere else. Both myself and our three sons have been very pleased with my husband's care. I myself would recommend Bowood Court to anyone who's family are faced with the decision to move their relative to a care home.

Mum's been treated to a very high standard. All the staff have been very helpful and she's enjoyed her time here. The only reason we are cutting the respite short is the distance we have to travel, which makes it difficult for some family members to visit. As a family we would like to give you all a big thank you, for looking after our precious mum.

My mom is new to Bowood Court, however all the staff seem friendly and caring. Systems could be improved eg. photos went astray when moved from Bowood Mews. Mom got mixed with a DNR/ Nil by mouth resident when my mum needed to be fed. Everything is fine now, staff pleasant and mom is cared for.

Overall Bowood has the potential to be an excellent care home. Unfortunately some of the staff really let it down. I've been sat here listening to the call system going for ages - I would hope no one needs urgent assistance!
I often have to make my nan's bed and on occasions staff have been sat talking at the time. I feel some staff have issues with communication and this causes problems with assistance and dignity. Some brilliant options for it's residents and completely clean.

The home is very relaxed and calm and it is a joy to visit my Mom who I know is in safe hands. We are all very pleased that we have chosen Bowood Court for Mom. Thank you to all staff.

I would like to praise Bowood Mews Care Home in Redditch for their amazing service.
We all read horror stories about Care Homes and their staff, but not always about the service when it’s been outstanding.
My Dad was in their care for 6 months, the attention to detail and the care received from staff/management was fabulous.
The last 4 weeks of his life as he deteriorated, they allowed my Mum to stay with him 24/7, catered for her and staff showed such genuine and loving support that our family is eternally grateful for.
On every visit the staff showed a friendly and warm welcome and my Dad was comfortable right to the end.
A huge THANK YOU to all the team at Bowood Mews and can recommend this Care Home to anyone.

Out of the twelve care/nursing/addicted living homes we visited trying to place my 85 year old uncle, Bowood Court was by far the best suited for his needs. Turning up unannounced to view the facilities we were greeted by the administration staff in a warm and welcoming manner. This attitude is reflected in all of the staff working there. My uncle loves Bowood Court. His room is comfortable and light meals are varied and of excellent quality. Although a little on the shy side my uncle has no qualms or sense of nervousness when joining in the varied and stimulating activities. The home is of the highest standard and the control of medication is efficient. Bowood Court is a very warm and friendly place, whether you are resident or just a visitor.

Generally very happy with the care. Meals are good but more staff are needed at mealtimes to assist those who need it. Staff are approachable and helpful but not always informed of what's going on with residents. Rooms could do with updating but generally clean and adequate.

I couldn't wish to leave my mothers health and well being in better hands, the staff are very good with her and are able to keep her calm when she flies into a panic so it is nipped in the bud quickly. The meals are extremely appetising with a good selection available. The manager and her staff are extremely helpful and let me know if they have any concerns I should know about. Very pleased she is staying here.

A carer accompanied my mother to my stepfathers funeral and he was absolutely wonderful. Extremely caring and helpful and respectful of the family's feelings and emotions. Cannot praise him enough.

Whilst being a dedicated team, there is an inconsistency of the level of staff. Lack of control over the loss of personal belongings.
