Reviews

9.6 Rowallan House has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.619)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Rowallan House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rowallan House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 12 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 4.619 for Rowallan House is calculated as follows: ( (130 Excellents x 5) + (68 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 202 Ratings = 4.619

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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 maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users 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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rowallan House is based on 12 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 8.2 positive Reviews (41 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 8.2 Target Reached = 1

  • 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 went into Rowallan House in May 2015. From the very beginning, it became apparent that the care shown to the residents by the staff was exceptional. My mother had been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and the patience and understanding of all the staff meant that she was stimulated and happy. As my mother's health deteriorated and she was eventually placed into palliative care the staff's kindness and consideration not only to Mum but to our family as well was outstanding. Our mother was able to pass away with dignity and love thanks to all the staff. Their kindness will always be remembered.

I would recommend Rowallan House very highly. Putting my father-in-law in a care home was a very difficult decision but the staff made it very easy and he is now very settled. We know he is safe and cared for. The staff and management treat him with respect and dignity and keep us constantly informed of anything happening with him. He is clean and well fed. We are very happy and grateful that they have made this change a very easy and stress-free one for us and especially for him. Would recommend Rowallan House to anyone in a similar position.

My mum came into this care home at the age of 98. She was very happy and content here. She was encouraged to bring personal items with her such as photos, ornaments etc. She found the staff very friendly and obliging in doing things for her. I arranged a birthday party with the help of management for mum's 99th. Inviting all the family, staff and residents. In her final days, the care she received was outstanding. The staff could not do enough for her and made her very comfortable until she passed away. If I needed to go into a care home now, this one would be my first choice.

My mother has now been a resident at Rowallan House for 4 years and 3 months. She would obviously prefer to be at home in her own house but her restricted vision and mobility problems (almost blind) render this impossible. She appreciated this and realises that the care home facility is her only option.

Carers in the home always seem very good. An activity specialist is often employed and provides cross-words and questionnaires which my mum appreciates as not being able to see, keeps her brain active. From time to time, the home has parties with entertainment. Mum enjoys this as she can sing along with the music.

Many of the carers have been at the home since mum took up residing, however, there tends to be a regular movement of staff, which I imagine happens in most care home facilities.

The care and supervision at Rowallan House are very good. The special needs of each resident is paramount in their thinking. The rooms are well decorated, clean and comfortable. The carers are kind and considerate and the manager is undertaking an excellent job.
Activities are geared to not only entertaining the ladies and gentlemen but they give them the opportunity to reminisce and remember their past. Thank you.

My father (96) has been a resident for the past three years and visit usually three times a week. During this time, I have always found the staff professional, polite, cheerful and friendly. Recently, dementia has made my father really bad tempered and difficult to manage but all the staff take this in their stride. The whole site is kept scrupulously clean and the maintenance man attends to every DIY type job quickly and well. Any time our experience of an 'old people smell', it is cleaned as soon as mentioned. Overall, if I needed a care home, this is the one for me. There is a lovely garden, secluded, lawned with plenty of greenery. I love taking Dad out there in his wheelchair.

This is a wonderful care home with the emphasis on "care".

Management is always "on the ball" and staff are polite, prompt and very caring. My wife is always clean and comfortable. Her needs are all catered for. Her room is clean and cosy. Her laundry is handled with care and I have no hesitation in recommending Rowallan House to anyone and everyone.

My nan is looked after really well at Rowallan House. She has had a new lease of life in the home, having weekly haircuts & having her nails done.
The staff are so caring for all her and the other residents' needs. My nan eats so well now with the great food she is given throughout the day and I am so impressed with the overall appearance of the home.

I can't fault the care my mother receives at 'Rowallan House'. She is bedridden and nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff. They are attentive, sympathetic and understanding of her limitations. I am kept well informed of her condition i.e. visits from GP. Both my sister and I have a good friendly relationship with carers and other staff. The door is always open to us.

All staff always diligent, aware of residents needs and safety and support. Staff take time to speak to residents separately if they are unhappy/unwell any one day.
Any minor incident is reported to family instantly.
All strive to meet everyone's needs which are very wide scoped. Home is regularly being cleaned, very rarely experience incontinence smells which are unavoidable but staff are very quick to rectify.
Annual summer party put on for all and everyone enjoys it. Many activities done throughout the year for those who want to take part.
