Reviews

9 Broomcroft House Care Home has a Review Score of 9 (9.036)

The Review Score of 9 (maximum of 10) for Broomcroft House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Broomcroft House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 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 4.519 for Broomcroft House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (95 Excellents x 5) + (22 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (9 Poors x 2) + (2 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.519

  • 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 4.517 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Broomcroft House Care Home 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 17.4 positive Reviews (87 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 17.4 Target = 0.517

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

The activities co-ordinator had arranged (along with the chef) for a French meal for residents and family/friends to round off a week where activities had all been connected with France. The dining room was beautifully set out with imitation named passports and Eiffel Tower postcards as well as being decorated red, white and blue. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere had Edith Piaf singing in the background. It provided much interest for discussion at the table. Staff wore berets, scarves and of course onions and had gone to a lot of trouble (as always) to make the day memorable. Well done and 'thank you'.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to hear about your positive experience and appreciate your comments of our home and will share your comments with the home’s manager.

My wife and I have visited our friend in this care home on three occasions.
Our friend suffers from a severe form of Alzheimer's and the treatment he receives from all staff is really really good.
Nothing is too much trouble.
Great patience is shown at meal times considering he is bed bound most of the time and can't feed himself.
Cleanliness and security seem to be 100 per cent perfect.
We feel very happy that our friend is being cared for with compassion and dignity.

Thank you for your review. It is lovely to hear that your friend is looked after so well and you must feel happy that he is cared for so well.

Broomcroft House Care Home provided the best possible care for my mum from September 2013 to her death in May 2017. Following a serious stroke, she needed full-time nursing care and in spite of her health problems and disability, the staff enabled her to enjoy her life there. For three and a half years we were always grateful we had Broomcroft House to be my mother's home. She could not have had better care and attention.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Please accept our condolences. So glad that she did enjoy her time with us and that you had peace of mind knowing that she was looked after.

For nearly six years now I have been a regular visitor coming on average about four times a week over that period. The atmosphere has always been welcoming and friendly. I have stayed for meals and the food has always been excellent. The whole place has always seemed spotless and the care shown of the highest standard.
The grounds are well cared for and the residents are able to enjoy sitting outside in fine weather.
At times there needs to be more staff on duty for their workload

Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. We are pleased to hear about your positive experience and appreciate your comments about our home and will share your comments with the home’s manager.

The Bupa Customer Care Team.

Broomcroft Care home is the best home anyone could wish to be in. The staff and everyone who works there are so lovely and helpful, fabulous. Nothing is too much trouble and they work so hard. They are all lovely to me and our daughters, always a cup of tea when we go in, it is my second home. I go every day to see my husband of 55 years, he is kept so clean and the home is spotlessly clean and never any smells, like some.
My friends, neighbours and family say if they had to be in a home, please make it Broomcroft when they've been with me to visit.

I came into Broomcroft in August 2011. From the first few hours, I was made to feel comfortable and happy. As well as working hard, all the staff enjoy a joke and a bit of fun. Visitors are made very welcome and my physiotherapist says this is one of the very best care homes she visits. The food is excellent. The chef regularly asks if there is any food I would like.

Chinese New Year 29/1/17, I had a meal with my wife. The food was excellent and it was an extremely enjoyable meal. All the Chinese food was equal or better than local Chinese restaurants. My wife who has dementia ate every morsel and descended into a peaceful nap. Well done by all, chef, servers and staff.

On entering the premises I was amazed there was no smell of urine or disinfectant. All the building is very clean and airy. The staff were all very friendly and observant to the residents needs. All happy and attentive towards the people of different degrees of illness. The stimulation towards patients was varied and the carers always knew which stimulates suites each one and all. I was there for the dinner time and the food was imaginative and colourful and very palatable.

We were very disappointed in the care mum received. Poor management structure. Don't be fooled by the fancy curtains and decor, all is not what it seems. Research other homes before making a decision.
Bupa are not the easiest organisation to deal with, their communication is shocking.
Fees do not represent the standard of service and care that is expected.
