The Review Score of 8.7 (maximum of 10) for Buchanan House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Buchanan House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 4 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 4.542 for Buchanan House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (29 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.542

  • 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 4.127 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Buchanan House Care Home is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered beds ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.377

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

An excellent facility that provides a high standard of care. Some areas requiring a degree of an upgrade (ongoing) but this is more than compensated for by excellent staff. Extremely clean; excellent and reliable laundry service; reasonable activities; very good service (dentist, doctor, optician etc) and great staff who interact with residents and respect their dignity.

My wife is in on a temporary basis. The staff are very attentive to our needs and cheery with it. The premises are open and airy and the private room is very comfortable. My wife has adapted to the place better than I thought. All is satisfactory.

As I only had six days in the home I am unable to give a great deal of information. However, I can only say that I was made very welcome and all the staff very helpful.
