Reviews

9.3 Forthbank Care Home has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.302)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Forthbank Care Home 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 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Forthbank Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.714 for Forthbank Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (92 Excellents x 5) + (20 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 119 Ratings = 4.714

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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 4.588 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Forthbank Care Home is based on 8 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 13.6 positive Reviews (68 registered beds ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 13.6 Target = 0.588

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

In searching for a care home for my mother, I found Forthbank Care Home to have the most welcoming atmosphere . As soon as I walked in, the management and staff could not have been more helpful in ensuring my mother was welcomed and since then she has been looked after incredibly well. I cannot thank all the staff enough because they have made what can be an incredibly difficult transition, so easy. My mother has settled in very well and loves her new beautiful room and compares everything to being in a first-class hotel! I am also very relieved to know she is being looked after so well and that has helped me enormously. Thank you !!

Forthbank is a lovely home. I've spent time in the garden area that has been recently landscaped. Nice peaceful place to sit and relax with lovely views. Staff are extremely nice, nothing is too much bother. Always smiling and making us smile.

My partner has dementia and has been a resident for 3 months. She gets very agitated at times and the staff have tried very hard to help calm her down to make her stay in the care home is more pleasurable. I have been informed several times of any incidents involving her and I find this important so I am aware of her welfare.
I feel I can talk to any of the staff, at all levels to seek information that is relevant to me and my partners condition.

I recently moved into the home and are very happy here, plenty to do each day activity lady visits each day to tell me what's on throughout the day and to see if I want to join in. It was nice to see the managers in and around the home, talking to everyone asking how they are. The food is excellent plenty of choice.

Having been encouraged by a residents daughter i began volunteering. I have attended various events e.g. Christmas Fayre, Christmas day, festive choir, Burns day etc. On each occasion i have had a warm welcome from staff who have been helpful in ensuring i am sure about my role. On each occasion i have left up-lifted- not for myself but for how heartening it is to see staff's warm interaction with the residents and the efforts made at social events to ensure residents and families enjoy the experience.
