Reviews

9.8 Rathside Care Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.848)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Rathside Care Home 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 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rathside Care Home 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 4.848 for Rathside Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (118 Excellents x 5) + (19 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 138 Ratings = 4.848

  • 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 Rathside Care Home 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 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 12 Reviews ÷ 6.4 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 have experience of other care homes and what immediately struck me when I entered Rathside was the cleanliness and the pleasant smell. All management and staff have been more than helpful and very attentive to my mother's needs. I feel very reassured that my mother is surrounded by people who approach their jobs in a very professional manner.

Every time I visit my wife, she tells me that Rathside is her home now. She is very happy there and is very complimentary about the staff, the food and the care given. From my point of view, I can see that my wife is happy. The staff are great, very friendly and I very much appreciate the care given so I know from experience how difficult my wife can be at times given her Alzheimer's condition.

Poor care by night staff. Left on commode too long. Hot food served lukewarm. Medical requests not always actioned. Overall I am happy at Rathside. It has a homely and inviting feel and is beautifully kept.

My mother has been a resident over the last month, she has received excellent treatment from all management staff. She has a clean comfortable room and is given excellent food.
The residents seemed to be very happy and there is plenty of occupational remedies for them to take part in.
Although staff are kept very busy, they always seem to have time for everyone including visitors.

Management are helpful, reliable and accommodating. Staff very good with my mother who is very happy most days (when she is not, it is purely down to her condition).
The premises are clean and well maintained. Generally, I am very happy with all aspects of the care that they provide and their communication with myself.

Thank you for the comments Patricia.

My mother has been a resident in the home since her dementia started in 2010.
Over the seven years, I have always found the home and the staff to be like a family to my mother which has been a great help to me over the years, knowing that she is well cared for.
