    The Review Score of 9.412 for Barleystone Court Care Home is based on 40 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.412 for Barleystone Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (245 Excellents x 5) + (175 Goods x 4) + (51 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 471 Ratings = 4.412

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. 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 provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 5 for Barleystone Court Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 40 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 40 Positive Reviews = 4.000 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (40 Positive Reviews ÷ 60 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.333 (maximum score = 1)

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1).

I find the staff welcoming and very willing to provide assistance when asked. I'm unsure which activities are provided for someone who is immobile such as my mother-in-law. She has difficulty swallowing which means the evening meal which we help feed her can be difficult for her. Overall I think the staff do a great job but the residents would probably benefit from having more people there to chat with. I appreciate staff are very busy. The lady who is new on the care team is particularly good with the residents.

I feel general care is quite good although quite often the residents are left in sitting room unsupervised. Perhaps there should be more activities as my mum really comes alive during those times.

HC-One, Careline Team at Barleystone Court Care Home responded to this review on 28 Jan 2016:

We are recruiting a second activities coordinator and she will be in post next week. The focus of the two activities coordinators will be to work across the home planning, supporting and carrying out activities to support and promote the wellbeing of all the residents. All residents will be offered opportunities to participate in activities appropriate to their needs and wishes. Care assistants are at present supporting the residents in the sitting rooms, however there are times where care assistants are supporting residents elsewhere in the home.

Happy with service provided.

HC-ONE, Careline Team at Barleystone Court Care Home responded to this review on 08 Dec 2015:

We have a small number of residents who are nursed in their rooms and a two or three residents who choose to stay in their rooms during the day. Typically they leave their doors open so that whilst care staff are not in their rooms, passing staff see and speak to the residents. The care staff spend time with these residents each day.
There are also a number of organised activities across the week and we try and support these residents to attend.

I am very content in the home at Barleystone. I get along with the other residents very well, everyone is kind and helpful. The food at Barleystone can be repetitive at times but very enjoyable. Overall I have good days and bad days in the home. I would recommend Barleystone to my friends.

Definitely more staff, as recently as last week I noticed that the morale amongst the few staff on duty was low. I feel that this must transfer to residents and they in turn will become unsettled. Increased staffing would also give carers more time to spend with residents on a one to one basis. Something my mother would benefit from. Access to a wheelchair for mum would also be a bonus.

My husband was admitted on 14th April 2015. He had a fall and didn't do any damage. Had another fall and hurt his elbow, had another fall resulted in a broken hip. His falls were probably his own fault not waiting for staff to help. Returned to home from hospital after broken hip the staff have been very good.

My wife moved into Barleystone 15/6/15 She is happy, settled and content though suffering from frontal lobe dementia. This is a complete contrast from another of your homes (Kinnard manor, Camelon) which we both hated. My wife has freedom to walk around different lounge areas and a beautiful garden area. The staff are all brilliant from management to a first class handyman. I hope she can spend what remains of her life in such friendly surroundings. I have not yet seen her at meals or activities, but know the dining room is spotless, good menu etc.

Every effort has been made to enable my mother to settle in the home and to achieve the best possible quality of life with Dementia.
Anything I have asked about has been attended to eg. changing a fabric armchair to a leather one for hygiene reasons.
I am now confident that I can have a few days holiday without the constant worry about my mum when she was living at home.

Both my parents have lived at Barleystone; in fact for quite a period they were both living there at the same time, which is somewhat unusual. My mother’s passing – and my father’s bereavement- was treated with professionalism, dignity and genuine sympathy by the staff. My father continues to live in Barleystone, a place he considers to be home. It’s noticeable that although the facilities are of a high standard, there is always some improvement going on. Their commitment to excellence is evident. Friendly, dedicated staff. Can’t fault the place.

My wife Isobel had a serious stroke two years past and has been here since them. My family and I checked all sixteen care homes in the area and found this one to be of a real high standard to which my wife has become accustomed to. The staff from the Matron to all the staff are proficient in all aspects of their work. I am deeply satisfied of the attention my wife is getting and the care from all staff concerned.

  • We only accept/publish Reviews that are submitted by a Resident/Service User or their Friends/Family (cannot be submitted anonymously) and comply with our Content Standards (eg are relevant, informative, civil and do not contain allegations of abuse, negligence or criminal activity).

  • Before publication, we check that all reviews comply with our Review Policy and we show all reviews to care providers so that they may submit a response to be published with the review.

  • We cannot guarantee how quickly Reviews will be posted on our site. We try to process the Reviews as quickly as we can, but on occasions it can take up to 30 days for them to be Published or deemed non compliant with our Review Policy.

  • We have zero tolerance for fraudulent reviews, which includes but is not limited to, an owner or agent of a care home / service offering incentives to reviewers to complete or remove reviews, impersonating a reviewer, selectively soliciting reviews, copying in-house comment cards, or attempting to damage a competitor by submitting a negative review. If we discover a fraudulent review, we will remove that review and we may remove all reviews for that care home / service and any care homes / services in the same group.
