Reviews

9.8 Glen Tanar has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.812)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Glen Tanar is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Glen Tanar in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.812 for Glen Tanar is calculated as follows: ( (163 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 191 Ratings = 4.812

  • 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 Glen Tanar is based on 10 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 4.2 positive Reviews (21 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 4.2 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.

I came to the Glen Tanar after leaving the hospital, having been made to feel at home and I have great support from all the staff. From the manager and all of the carers, everyone is friendly and caring. I wanted to have 24/7 care for my peace of mind and that is what I have. The food is lovely, varied and well cooked and presented. The other residents have been great in helping me to settle in. I am so glad I chose this home and I am very happy.

My mum has been at the Glen Tanar since leaving hospital. She has settled in very well, the staff are very welcoming and friendly, her room is beautiful and homely. Mum enjoys the food which is a great relief for me, as she hasn't eaten well for over four months. The Glen Tanar has given me peace of mind knowing mum is happy, well supported and settled. All of the residents are so lovely and have made mum feel very welcome. Would recommend this home to everyone.

I don't like snack lunches. Just because one resident is so slow with breakfast, everyone has to suffer. Some food is very nice - no complaints. Lacking morning tea and afternoon drink.

Pamela Mathauda, Director at Glen Tanar responded to this review on 20 Jul 2017:

It was agreed at a residents meeting that the residents would like a smaller meal at lunch time and a larger meal at tea time. A main course and a pudding are provided at both meal times. Drinks are provided throughout the day. We have a host of activities on offer which residents are free to participate in or not.

My friend who lives at Glen Tanar is very well looked after, my friend is very happy she laughs with all the staff, my friend looks at the care home as her own home. The staff at Glen Tanar are like one big family, they welcome you in, offer you tea, coffee or anything else. The all seem to enjoy talking and doing things with them. Taking them out to the shops and the sea front. Nothing seems to be a problem for them. I would recommended this care home to everyone I know as everyone goes beyond their duties.

The staff all seem very helpful and friendly. Nothing seems too much trouble for them. It is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, a true 'home from home'. I viewed many care homes prior to my father being admitted to the Glen Tanar, I narrowed it down to this one and another which are both owned by the same people.

My friend has had to go into the home as she was in a bad way, but I am very pleased to say she is almost back to normal. I have worked in many nursing homes as a carer, but this home is the best I've been in. It's a joy to visit, they make you very welcome at all times, nothing is too much trouble. I would give it 100%.

My mum's been in the care home for the last year and she loves every minute of it. She could not be in a better place, with all the love care and affection that is given by the manger and all her staff is beyond their call of duty. I could not fault this home in anyway and home is what it is.
