Bridge View Care Home is situated in Choppington village in Northumberland, close to the Northumbrian coastline and a short drive away from the Northumberland National Park.

It is located in the heart of the local community and is served well by bus services.

At Bridge View care home, there is caring staff, a homely and friendly atmosphere and high standards of cleanliness and care.

All these things, important as they are, are the very least you’d expect from them. But there’s so much more to Bridge View.

The central focus of everything done, day in and day out, is the general wellbeing of residents. To ensure that they remain physically and mentally active and that they are fulfilled, happy and feel cared for and loved.

Staff are always looking for innovative ways of doing things and have initiated a few ambitious and exciting projects.

Staff started a Listening Post café for all residents to meet on a daily basis, to talk and listen, laugh or cry.

Residents have started arranging to meet there and families also attend.

Staff initiated ‘My Day’. This involves two residents each day who are made to feel special by every member of staff on duty that day. Staff visit the residents to chat with them or to help them with whatever they wish to do.

Reviews

8.4 Bridge View has a Review Score of 8.4 (8.414)

The Review Score of 8.4 (maximum of 10) for Bridge View is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 2 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bridge View in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.4 out of 5 from 2 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 5 for Bridge View is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 5

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 3.414 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bridge View is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 12.2 Target = 0.164

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

Thank you for your recommendation, it is good to know we are getting things right for our residents

Very happy with the level of care our mother receives. She seems very happy and settled in quite quickly. All the staff are lovely with her, myself and my family have piece of mind her stopping there, her room is always kept clean and tidy and the staff always see that she has everything she needs.
