    The Review Score of 8.172 for The Erskine Park Home is based on 3 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 4.722 for The Erskine Park Home is calculated as follows: ( (27 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.722

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • 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 3.45 for The Erskine Park Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 3 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 3 Positive Reviews = 0.300

      3. (3 Positive Reviews ÷ 40 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.150

My Mother has been resident for over 3 years and in her 94th year is enjoying a quality of life I could not provide any other way. The staff at Erskine Park are like extended family and they look after Mum at the highest standard. Nursing and Care staff are motivated and Well trained. The Manager, Administrator, Recreation Team, Physio Team and Volunteers create a fantastic atmosphere lots going on for residents who need activities for wellbeing. A very happy home where you are encouraged to take part and join in. I feel secure in the knowledge that the staff care and are very proud of the job they do. It is the hardest decision of all to place your loved one in the care of others. The facilities of this home are great,purpose built private rooms with en suite wet rooms, the home is kept spotless by a wonderful housekeeping team who always are friendly and engage residents and visitors alike.
I cannot thank the Manager and Staff enough for all that they do for Mum and our family.

This care home, in my opinion, is outstanding. Staff, carers, nurses, admin staff are all highly trained in dementia nursing, and try to and succeed in making every resident special. The entertainment and outings far surpass other establishments having had my relative in two previous homes. Residents families feel happy and secure in knowing that their relative is receiving first class care.

My husband has been in 'The Erskine Park Home' since October 2014. Before dementia claimed him, he was a 'captain of industry' and his sole interest was overseeing his many and varied businesses. He never had any interest in the many activities on offer in Erskine and by the time he became a resident, he was unable to persue his real interest - Business. The staff have tried so hard with him, to no avail and now he needs 24 hour nursing care and is in bed all the time because sitting for any length of time exacerbates his pressure sores. These are well cared for and seem to be improving. He has not worked since January 2015 when he fractured his hip and would not accept any physiotherapy.
