Reviews

8.6 Beechcroft has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.592)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Beechcroft is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Beechcroft in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.8 out of 5 from 3 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 4.743 for Beechcroft is calculated as follows: ( (28 Excellents x 5) + (5 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 35 Ratings = 4.743

  • 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 3.849 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Beechcroft is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 8.6 Target = 0.349

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

What a marvellous care home. The staff and nurses made my Mothers last days really happy for her and nothing was too much trouble for them. If you are looking for a care home in the Wirral area this is the one.

Thank you for your kind comments - they are very much appreciated.

Caring friendly staff who looked after my mother very well. The manager of the home responded quickly to concerns and did her utmost to resolve. Variety of entertainment. Good decor and the new Christmas decorations were lovely. I am very grateful for the care shown to my mother. Thank you.
The lift is old and needs updating, however, the staff plans in place meant that after the first breakdown my mother was not affected because she was moved to a ground floor room.

Thank you for your kind comments. It is much appreciated.
Due to the problems last summer with the lift, we installed 2 stair lifts in November 2017, with a 3rd stair lift to be installed by March 2018, as a back up to the main lift, covering all 4 floors. In addition, the lift mechanism was partially upgraded in August 2017, with the upgrading to be completed after the installation of the 3rd stair lift. The main lift is already a lot more reliable.

I cannot praise the staff of this nursing home enough. They are the staff of the highest quality. Apart from being highly professional, they are extremely compassionate they took care of Mum's every need and on top of that found time to help us through a very difficult time. When I say us that meant an awful lot of our extended family. To the staff, I extend my warmest thank you, you are all brilliant.
