Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.561 for Plas Bridell Manor Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (39 Excellents x 5) + (11 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 57 Ratings = 4.561

  • 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 4.676 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Plas Bridell Manor Nursing Home is based on 5 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 7.4 positive Reviews (37 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 7.4 Target = 0.676

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

9.2 Plas Bridell Manor Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.237) from 5 Reviews

My father was treated with love and dignity throughout his time at Plas Bridell Manor and especially during his last days. He was treated with respect and love and his stay was exactly what you would expect from an exemplary care home like this.
The care staff are second to none and I would not have wanted him to be anywhere else. They always make relatives and visitors feel welcome.
The food is outstanding, the home is spotlessly clean and the new manager is brilliant.
Entertainment and activities are also a great part of the home, with outside musical entertainers visiting and entertaining the residents.
Plas Bridell Manor is set in a beautiful part of the country, surrounded by beautiful grounds and woodland. there are plenty of places for residents to sit and enjoy the grounds, with lots of birds and wildlife surrounding the home.

Kirsty Jones, Acting Manager at Plas Bridell Manor Nursing Home responded to this review on 25 Jan 2018:

Thank you so much for recognising the whole team. They make such an effort to ensure Bridell is homely and filled with happiness and love. While they don't expect to be thanked they need to be and I shall put this up in the staff room for them to enjoy. We were privileged to be able to look after your father.

I went to Plas Bridell Manor to see an old family friend but not without trepidation, as you hear such a lot of negative press and he has advanced dementia.
Well, I was completely surprised, the home is so friendly and welcoming. We stayed for afternoon tea with homemade cake and it had an amazingly friendly atmosphere. The new manager was so smiley. The care staff had hugs for each and every resident in the lounge.
I left with a new view of care homes. If I ever have to be in one I hope it's as loving as Plas Bridell Manor.

Thank you very much for your kind words, the team here at Bridell really do care and I am glad it shows.

Prior to coming to Bridell, my father was in a care home in Cornwall. They were very caring but unable to motivate my dad to get out of bed and they weren't able to keep him clean and dry. Since moving to Bridell, my dad is up every day and appears happy. This is a big achievement. The staff are caring and communicate well. The staff build relationships with the residents.

My wife had been in care units in Pembrokeshire and had been treated well in them all. As her condition worsened, by the time she came to Plas Bridell she had deteriorated and could not really do anything for herself. She even lost her ability to speak but could communicate by smiling.

As there was no restriction on visiting I was able to visit her daily. The care the home gave to me was excellent. I can only thank the home for the care that they gave me. Thanks.

The care received from all the staff has been exceptional especially in my sister's final days.
Very special care and compassion was given to my sister and also all the family.
Even though the building itself is in need of decoration the standard of care is excellent - the staff are very special people and deserve recognition for this.
