  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 8 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bryansburn Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 7 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 4.6 for Bryansburn Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (65 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (6 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 95 Ratings = 4.6

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Bryansburn Care Home is based on 7 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 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 7 Target = 1.000

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

My Mother has been resident in Bryansburn Care Home for over four years now.
During that time she has been very well looked after.
The home is clean and well run and the staff are friendly and take a personal interest in all the residents.
I can certainly recommend it for anyone.

My mother is profoundly deaf with Alzheimer's, yet the staff all manage to communicate effectively with her. They are all very pleasant and make time to communicate with her and my dad (also profoundly deaf and visits every day) on a personal and caring level. They are quick to contact us over any issues and offer resolution or advice. If we have any issues they are very responsive. My only concerns relate to my mother's hygiene but this is due to her Alzheimer's and I understand that they are reluctant to force anything upon her.

The care in Bryansburn is top notch. Every time we visited my granny, she is happy and seems very content. Staff are very welcoming, understanding and helpful. The food is great. The hairdressing room is a great idea to keep the old people feel they are still part of the community.
