The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Camowen 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 7 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Camowen in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 3 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 4.631 for Camowen is calculated as follows: ( (55 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 84 Ratings = 4.631

  • 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 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.

    The 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Camowen is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 4 Target = 0.750

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

We visit my cousin on a regular basis and have always been warmly welcomed. Staff are friendly, with warm smiles.
No smell of urine in ground floor level, which is where my cousin has her room. She is always clean, no evidence of soiling on clothing.
Attention given by staff to dress her in clothes she likes.
Her room is clean, no bodily smells evident. I ring every few days between visits. The assistant manager always gives a detailed account of my cousin's health etc and on occasion has called her to the office to have a chat.

On first impressions when looking over Camowen, we found it to be a warm and friendly home. My mother has settled in well, the staff are caring and have a wonderful sense of humour. Very well run by the manager and so efficient. I have visited friends in a 5-star care home but Camowen is superior to them. Residents are encouraged to sit in the conservatory and join in the activities. Pity there are not more care homes like this one.

From the very beginning, I have found the staff and management to be very kind and attentive to my mother's needs. Although she tends to be a loner, they have gently encouraged her to join in the activities at the same time, respect her need for privacy and the food is served is excellent. As a visitor, I am always made to feel welcome and I am grateful for the peace of mind this establishment has given to me and my family.

My mum has had more than most people trips to hospital, the staff are always there far her on her return. I know that I can go away or home knowing my mum is in the best home and getting the best care.

The staff are very friendly, caring and treat each client as an individual. Considering mum can be a little disruptive due to her dementia they are incredibly patient with her. The food is very good and they give mum plenty of time to do things at her own pace. They know her likes and dislikes and feed her accordingly.
They are very friendly and welcoming to her family and we are invited to all the parties and concerts they have. They also have outings where were are invited too.
In all we are extremely happy with the care and the love that is given to mum and have no worries about her being in Camowen.

My mother has been at the Camowen for a few years now and I can only praise all the staff for their care and patience for her day to day wellbeing. The home is very nicely decorated and always very inviting. If my mother has been out, upon her return she says she is home, which makes the family feel very reassured and happy.
