The Review Score of 7.278 for The Erskine Home is based on 1 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 4.167 for The Erskine Home is calculated as follows: ( (3 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.167
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:
3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.
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.)
(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 3.111 for The Erskine Home is calculated as follows:
1 Positive Reviews = 3
0.1 x 1 Positive Reviews = 0.100
(1 Positive Reviews ÷ 180 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.011

Reviewer Connection to The Erskine Home
Review submitted from a Postal Card by Jane L (Daughter of Resident/Service User) on Thursday 8 September 2016. Review relates to August 2016.
My mother has been in The Erskine Home for approximately 3 years. She is very happy and her room is lovely. If I have a complaint, it is dealt with straight away. Everyone is nice and friendly and the recreation staff are first class. Mum is happy with the food and the meetings between staff and family is very interesting (They try hard). Good environment and a lovely place to stay and visit. Also 'Harry's Cafe' is a great place and staff are great too. Some of the care staff need more training.
