Reviews

9.3 Laverock House has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.271)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Laverock House 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 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Laverock House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 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 4.521 for Laverock House is calculated as follows: ( (29 Excellents x 5) + (15 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.521

  • 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 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Laverock House is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 2.8 positive Reviews (14 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 2.8 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.

A warm slightly haphazard environment tries to provide as near to a family home as possible. Respect for residents is high with great care for personal wishes and preferences are mostly achieved. Activities are varied and take account of individuals interests. The gardens are beautifully maintained. The house, Georgian is slightly cramped in places. This is a family run facility with good staff relations and a "can do" attitude. There are resident pets also given warm attention. Food is fairly good again with variations to suit residents particular requests. Hygiene and cleanliness is occasionally inadequate.

Laverock House is a small charming care home with beautiful gardens in the heart of trinity.
My mother-in-law has been there for over five years and is extremely happy and comfortable there, no wonder with the delicious home cooked meals and various social activities and outings that take place. It also helps that it is the same caring staff that cater for all her needs.
I have and will continue to recommend Laverock House.
