Reviews

9.3 Douglas View Care Home has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.331)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Douglas View 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 24 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Douglas View Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.481 for Douglas View Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (150 Excellents x 5) + (126 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 287 Ratings = 4.481

  • 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 4.85 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Douglas View Care Home is based on 17 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 20 positive Reviews (100 registered beds ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 20 Target = 0.850

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

My mother was admitted for emergency respite care. Staff were prepared for her arrival and everything was done to make mum feel welcome. She is treated with dignity at all times. The care home is very comfortable with caring, professional staff in attendance and is encouraged to eat well, exercise and participate in any activities. Her mood is definitely better. Food is good also. At present, the family are trying to arrange permanent care in this establishment. Well done to staff and keep up the good work.

Very pleased with the care my cousin is receiving. Staff are very friendly and always acknowledge us when we visit. My cousin has issues about washing and the staff handle this as best they can. He settled in very quickly. Feel he should be taken out for a walk more often; even if it is a short walk around the block.

Hi my mother has been in Douglas View care home for the past year, from drinking alcohol 7 days a week, smoking 20-30 cigarettes a day to not drinking at all and having no cigarettes in the past year, my god what a difference of a woman. I can't thank the nurses and management enough in helping my mother to what she is today, she's clean, fresh, fed well and smiling again. She has put weight back on, looks healthier than ever. The carers take a big weight off my shoulders with their service and I could not thank them enough.

My aunt has been a resident for 2 months I have found that the staff are very helpful, approachable and eager to assist. The office staff are friendly and helpful, and the manager is available to ask questions or for a chat. Other residents are happy and enjoy their meals (as I have seen when assisting my aunt in the dining room) they have a varied choice of meals. There are activities that my aunt has taken part in and this is vital to keep her motivated. All in all, I am satisfied with the care she is receiving.

My mum became a resident at Douglas View Care Home in July 2014 and over the course of the last 15 months, she has settled in well and she has become a part of the Douglas View community/family. This had been possible due to the caring, thoughtful and conscientious staff alongside family and friends. The shared sense of fun and humour between staff and residents together with excellent communication skills was obvious among the staff on a daily basis.

Staff are genuinely caring and interested in the residents. Initially we had some concerns about the turnover but this seems to have been resolved. In theory the activities programme is a super attraction, but in practice subject to alterations and last minute cancellations. Understandably item of clothing etc. do get mislaid and more could be some to ensure that personal belongings are returned to the correct rooms. Facilities for visitors are currently being improved i.e coffee bar/ meeting place and this is long overdue. I would be very keen to have a brief written update on mums week (behaviour, health, appetite) perhaps by email.
