Reviews

9.5 Brookfields Private Nursing Home Ltd has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.506)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Brookfields Private Nursing Home Ltd is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Brookfields Private Nursing Home Ltd in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 6 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 4.673 for Brookfields Private Nursing Home Ltd is calculated as follows: ( (74 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.673

  • 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 4.833 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Brookfields Private Nursing Home Ltd is based on 6 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 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 6 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.833

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Brookfield's Private Nursing Home Ltd is an amazing care home, with nursing. I looked at many homes when trying to find a home for my mum and Brookfield ticked all the required boxes. All staff are extremely well trained, and nothing is too much trouble for them. Staff are able very quickly to spot minor changes in residents which if not addressed could quickly escalate into major health issues. All staff without exception spent time listening to resident’s needs and act accordingly. Regular resident activities including trips out are arranged for residents, and family events also take place at key times of the year. Resident and family meetings also take place where any concerns or suggestions are taken on board with amazing speed. The family are always kept fully informed of any changes in their relatives care needs and care plans are regularly shared with the resident and family. The care in Brookfield is exemplary. I know my mother is in very safe hands.

My father spent a short time at the Brookfields before he passed away. The care and support he received was wonderful and I cannot speak too highly of the staff. The cleanliness and ethos of the home is second to none.

The staff were very respectful of my mother's dignity and gave her the warm feeling she was amongst friends.
The flexibility over room set up and personal furniture was comforting.

Mum received a warm and proficient welcome to Brookfield's Private Nursing Home after a few weeks of less than competent care. She remarked how safe she felt here. She has been treated with dignity, real care and compassion. Staff have always responded to requests and been available for discussion as required. As a family, we have felt confident that mum is being well cared for. The quality and friendliness of all the staff have been very good. Thank you

My Auntie has been residing in Brookfields Private Nursing Home Ltd for nearly 4 years and from the start, I was impressed with the standard of care given to her. I have visited other homes so have been able to compare the care and facilities given to the residents. The staff are very friendly and attentive and try to involve the residents in activities suitable to their needs.

Mum has been a resident at Brookfields for 2 1/2 years and although, at times, she would like to be in her own home, she has been very well cared for and supported from day 1. At 98 she is very frail and the cared provided for her has been excellent and always treated with respect and a positive manner. The staff are excellent and always on hand . Mum is generally happy and knows she is in a safe and supportive environment. I have been extremely happy with the care provided and would recommend Brookfields.
