The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Balfarg Care Home is based on 39 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.506 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.506 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 5 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published (including Restricted Publication) Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.506 for Balfarg Care Home is based on 39 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 4.506 for Balfarg Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (261 Excellents x 5) + (154 Goods x 4) + (34 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 449 Ratings = 4.506

    • 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 Balfarg Care Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 39 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 39 Positive Reviews = 3.900 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (39 Positive Reviews ÷ 50 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.560 (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). There are 5 Points available for the total number of positive Recommendations/Reviews submitted in relation to the number of beds at the Care Home.

  • Before 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk only accepted Recommendations (positive comments only) and the Ratings were limited to Excellent, Good & Satisfactory. These are marked up as Recommendations.

  • As of 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk changed from Recommendations to Reviews (positive and negative comments) and added the Ratings Poor and Very Poor. These are marked up as Reviews. Between 1st July and 31st December 2015, we are still processing a number of Recommendations from Recommendation cards sent out before 1st July (These are marked up as Recommendations).

For the time I've been in Balfarg, I find everything is alright, rooms are quite big and comfortable. The food is good and there is nothing I have disliked. I like going out to the garden for a walk around. I feel it is good that there is a hairdresser in the home.

My mother has vascular dementia and has been a resident in the Balfarg Care Home for 15 months now. I researched numerous care homes before deciding on the above home. I can honestly say I selected the best home for my mother as the staff treat her as one of their own relatives and the care is of a very high standard. I receive regular contact from the Balfarg enquiring if I have any concerns with my mothers care and as I visit three/four times a week I see different members of staff. My mother has settled nicely and calls her room "her home". I feel it is like an extension to my mothers family.

I like sitting in my room and no one bothers me. Care staff will come in if I need them or to check up on me. I join in with the activities when I want to be in company. I like when there is an outing. Staff are always nice to me. The food is very good. The domestic staff are thorough at their job and the home is very clean.

I have lots of company staying in Balfarg. I love to socialise. My friends can come and see me whenever they wish. If I wish for anything I can ask and the staff will do their best to get it for me, I do get a little homesick for my own house. I feel through that I can do a lot more by being in Balfag and I have company.

It became clear around March this year that Mum now required care home facilities. After a few visits, my sister & I had narrowed our preferences to two local homes. My sister took Mum to visit both of them and Mum much preferred Balfarg. A room became available quite soon, and after staying in the local recuperative hospital for a few months Mum moved into Balfarg in May this year.

After a few weeks it became clear that Mum's physical health was improving quite markedly. It also became clear that the lovely staff at Balfarg were working very diligently with Mum to make her life as pleasant as possible. This was no surprise: the other residents had made it clear that the care offered was kind, thorough and respected their dignity and individuality.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Balfarg Care Home to anyone requiring assisted living. They are looking after my Mum wonderfully well, and my sister and I are very grateful. Mum is getting more and more frail, but the help is stepping up to meet her increasing needs. The respect shown to her religious convictions is also much appreciated.

My mother in law was admitted to Balfarg Care Home earlier this year from hospital following a period of deteriorating ability to care for herself resulting in her being at risk. The transition and eventual move was completed with ease and assurance that all would be dealt with. This meant so much to family at this time as there was guilt and uncertainty that this move would be accepted by my mother in law.

My honest opinion is that I have not seen my mother in law looking so well and engaging so readily with others in many years. She is happy, more mobile and communicating on a far better level than before. She talks fondly about the care staff stating that they are very helpful, kind and cheery. I have to say that is my observation also. On any occasion that I have had to ask for advice or for a particular service there has been no hesitation and have always been met with kindness and respect.

I would have no hesitation recommending Balfarg Care Home to anyone looking for a comfortable and pleasant residence for their relative.

My overall experience of the home has been that the staff and management are friendly and helpful. The care my mother receives is to a high standard, even when she broke her hip and the hospital did very little to aid her recovery, the staff have put a lot of effort to make sure she got back on her feet.
I think the activities provided are excellent. The coordinator is most helpful to residents, giving them things to do that most seem to enjoy. When the entertainers are brought in, it is such a very happy experience for all concerned. No sitting about doing nothing.Excellent.
