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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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 3.125 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Westbank Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered beds ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.125

Reviewer Connection to Westbank Care Home

  • Daughter of Resident/Service User
    1

On approaching Westbank we were delighted to see the beautifully maintained, spacious grounds which contribute to an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity. The attractive building is well designed for its purpose. The front door opens onto a welcoming foyer which leads into the homely open plan dining room and lounge. Particularly relaxing is the conservatory which has views out onto the garden. The bedrooms are comfortable, clean and well furnished, as is the rest of the home.

Senior staff are extensively knowledgeable and encourage high standards throughout. Nothing appears to be too much trouble for the carers and they try hard to accommodate my mother's individual needs. Kitchen staff endeavour to cater for her personal tastes and the nursing staff are conscientious in their responsibilities. I feel confident that my mother is being well cared for. It is a pleasure to visit her in the home; I am always made to feel welcome and valued as part of the community.
