Reviews

9.2 Beech Hall has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.242)

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Beech Hall is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Beech Hall in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 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 4.695 for Beech Hall is calculated as follows: ( (75 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 105 Ratings = 4.695

  • 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 4.547 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Beech Hall 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 12.8 positive Reviews (64 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 12.8 Target = 0.547

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

When I come to see my friend, I am always impressed by how smart and furnished the home is and how lovely the flowers and arrangements are at the window.

The staff are always very helpful and friendly to me and to the residents and treat them with dignity. My friend's room is lovely and made homely with her photographs and personal pictures on the walls and ornaments. Her cupboards, wardrobes and furniture is very useful and has a purpose-built bathroom. All good.

When first visiting the home, I found it to be modern, airy, light, clean and fresh. The daytime areas, namely the lounge, dining area, quiet lounges were furnished well and comfortable. The bedroom was of a good size with ensuite facilities and very pleasant. The staff were caring and attentive and interest was shown to individuals needs and should there be any concerns. I was contacted to deal with the same.

I am extremely glad that my mum is a resident in Beech Hall. Their standard of care has been amazing over the past 2 years - the staff are excellent - completely approachable and happy to talk to you at any time.

The home is always spotlessly clean - the food is good and the residents are looked after by very kind and caring staff.

On occasions when my mum has had to be admitted to hospital, they have always sent a member of staff with her, even though it has been well after their 'going home' time.

I have no complaints at all, and cannot praise Beech Hall highly enough.

Our mum has been a resident at Beech Hall since December 2015.
The first couple of weeks were hard as she was confused and unsettled,and also had a hospital stay. We were worried it would set her back when she went back to Beech Hall, but she settled back in very quickly, and soon regarded it as "Home".
We are more than happy with the care mum receives and can honestly say that the staff are competent, friendly, caring, and extremely hard working, and have a genuine rapport with the residents.
The rooms are lovely, the food is a good, and a varied menu, and the tables are set up as in a restaurant, with glasses and linen napkins.
Initially we visited mum every day as it was hard for us too, to hand her care over to someone else, but now she happily waves us goodbye when we leave her, sitting with her friends, and we know she is happy and looked after. Thanks to Beech Hall we are now mums children again and not her carers, and the time we get to spend with her is Quality time.

Amazing staff who work tirelessly to ensure the happiness, well-being and safety of the residents - often going that extra mile! We have recently enjoyed celebrating Christmas day there in a very festive and cheerful atmosphere.
Finally having to accept that it is no longer safe for your parents to remain at home is a very heart-wrenching and emotional time. We have been supported through this by everyone at Beech Hall and have never regretted our choice of home. We love the open and welcoming atmosphere. Any concerns we had initially were listened to and addressed - the result being a very settled mother-in-law. For us, it has meant that we can sleep without worrying about being called out. We can now spend quality time with mum rather than worrying about the practicalities of her care.
And then the facilities! A care home that feels like a home with wide hallways, lovely soft furnishings and furniture. The lounge area is light and spacious with different areas to sit in. The dining tables are set with table linen (including napkins) and wine glasses with the varied menu being tasty and plentiful. The additional quiet lounges (once again with very tasteful decor) are ideal for sharing a family meal with your loved one or just enjoying a change of scenery. The bedrooms are the best we found anywhere: three quarter beds, a personal fridge and the en-suite wet room. The hair dressing salon was an additional bonus.
No-one can be less than impressed by the facilities when you visit - but it is the staff at this home who make it what it is. For us, it's become like an extended family. The whole staff have supported us through an emotional seven months and we are very grateful.
