Reviews

9.8 Bridgedale House has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.849)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Bridgedale House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Bridgedale House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 11 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 4.849 for Bridgedale House is calculated as follows: ( (163 Excellents x 5) + (29 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 192 Ratings = 4.849

  • 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 Bridgedale House is based on 11 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 5 positive Reviews (25 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 5 Target Reached = 1

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

Two years in and my Aunt still loves living here, as she is 95 that's some recommendation.
I have found all the staff very professional and very caring but most of all respectful to residents and relatives.
Nothing is too much trouble.
Bridgedale House is kept immaculately clean, the food is good and the entertainment is often excellent.
Keep up the good work.

Extremely caring and friendly staff. Home is situated in a nice location and is a home from home. It was a difficult decision to decide to put mum into a care home but since she moved to Bridgedale House we have not regretted it for a single moment.

My Mum now aged 95 years has been in Bridgedale House for 3 years. She has Dementia which has improved whilst she has been in the care of the wonderful staff in Bridgedale. She is very content and continually says she is happy and well cared for. She tells me the staff are very kind never get cross and are very patient. She says the food is great. She also says I am not to worry about her since she is confident we could travel anywhere in the country and not find anywhere better than Bridgedale.
Her comments help me to feel happy and relaxed, this, in turn, makes my life with my husband and close family stress free. My brother lives in America and he speaks to Mum every few days
Every time I visit I am amazed at the welcome I receive from everyone, the staff are now part of our extended family.

I have nothing but praise for the wonderful way the nurses care for the residents as if they were their own family. The environment, the quality of food, the safety and the attention to detail is incredible. I feel so blessed my mother seems so relaxed.

My mother, a resident at Bridgedale House has had several emerging medical needs during the last months which have been very effectively dealt with because of the diligence, professionalism and kindness of the carers who also sought to reassure my mum (and me) throughout. The speed with which they spotted symptoms, monitored them and rapidly and efficiently followed procedures was not only impressive but also made a difficult situation much better. And all of this was underlined with loving kindness and emotional support. Thank you Bridgedale House!

This is a beautiful care home where the residents are treated as individuals with dignity, respect and love. The staff are always looking for ways to enhance the well-being of the residents, knowing the person's tastes and requirements and striving to add a smile or quality to the residents day. They seem to look for extra opportunities to add to the care of our "loved ones". This leaves me with a feeling that I can relax knowing my family member is in the best hands.

My 87 yr old mother was a resident at Bridgedale House for the last 16 months of her life and she passed away in April. Since mum suffered from dementia, we were warned that we could only expect her condition to worsen, as the disease increased its hold and her mind and personality would gradually fade from view. Having said that, I was always surprised how these effects were reduced due to the care, compassion and devotion of the staff.
I found all staff to be kind and courteous; not only with my mother, but with each resident and visitor alike.
They ensured my mother's remaining days were in a safe and comfortable environment, where she was kept free from anxiety and stress. I can only offer all the staff & management my highest commendation for their relentless professionalism and patience.
Bridgedale House should be held as the gold standard for all care homes and I thank you on behalf of my family for all the kindness, help and compassion you showed my mother.

Bridgedale House - I very much doubt if there are better care homes in the United Kingdom! My Sister has been a resident since September 2016 and in all honesty, she has never looked better (Over the past 5 Years or so). The care and absolute professionalism of the ENTIRE staff are commendable.

The environment, decor, furnishings etc are of the highest standard. Cleanliness and hygiene cannot be bettered. All aspects of the catering are excellent, with plenty of choices well above what could reasonably be expected.

The staff at all times are most courteous and friendly and willing to help/assist in any way shape or form. Nothing is too much trouble. From the Management team through to the maintenance the atmosphere is cordial and pleasant to deal with at all times.

All things considered, BRIDGEDALE is superb and manages to cater extremely well for all the residents and in no way must it be associated with the recent adverse comments.

My mum-in-law has been a resident of Bridgedale for 2 years, following several falls and illnesses requiring short stays in hospital. We knew she could no longer manage to live on her own so looked around our area of Sheffield to find a Care Home where we would be happy for her to live permanently. We had heard about Bridgedale from a friend who recommended it as her Mum was living there. We have been extremely happy with every aspect of care at Bridgedale. My mum-in-law is much happier and healthier than when she was living on her own. Her Alzheimers seems to have slowed down as she has people around her and is much more stimulated. The home is a lovely old house, carefully renovated to provide the necessary facilities and with fabulous views over the garden and hills in the distance. That feeling of space has a very calming effect. All the staff are friendly and welcoming, making it a real home from home.

From when my mother moved in about 4 months ago, the staff and management have been consistently caring and welcoming. They are open with us, and nothing seems to be too much trouble. My mother has settled in well and, while it's hard for us all to come to terms with a life of increasing dementia, she has a renewed smile about her. Bridgedale House has become a safe and comfortable place for her to be, and is somewhere where she can live a dignified life. All who work there "deserve a medal", as she would say.

I have been very impressed by the care my Mother has experienced at Bridgedale House care home. Her health has stabilised and is better now than it has been for a while, her appearance has improved and her dementia is more settled with the continuity of care and activities. Her room is lovely and there is an individualised approach to care that is respectful of her needs as and individual but one that engenders a cohesion in the community of residents. I am very grateful to the staff at the home for caring so well for my mother.

I viewed a few care homes in Sheffield but found that while they were clean and the staff pleasant, the homes were like group hotels, uniform, corporate colours and small box rooms for residents. I also felt I was commencing a business transaction and that mum's needs were secondary. Bridgedale feels like someone's home that they are sharing with others. Residents rooms are large and individual and have their own toilets and wash basins. The dining room and lounges are bright and spacious and carers are always in sight, whether it be a manager, cook, cleaner or carer, the staff are always warm and friendly and posses great sensitivity along with good humour. They're also very supportive of relatives as well as the residents.
