The Review Score of 8.2 (maximum of 10) for Balhousie Stormont Lodge Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Balhousie Stormont Lodge Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 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 4.207 for Balhousie Stormont Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (25 Excellents x 5) + (23 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 58 Ratings = 4.207

  • 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 3.969 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Balhousie Stormont Lodge Care Home 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 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.469

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

Balhousie Stormont is a really friendly care home. They are really welcoming to visitors. They seem to know my mother-in-law really well and meet all her needs. Her named carer has a lovely relationship with her. On a nice day, she is taken out into the garden and the residents get some treats - ice lollies. There is entertainment, she really likes the peb when they come to visit.

My mother went up for respite for 2 weeks she lasted 4 days, she was left in a room on the upper level, not able to move without help. The main problem for her was when she needed help she would ring the buzzer and would often sit for hours until someone came.

All of the residents are elderly and have some form of dementia. Each resident has his or her own needs and each is treated individually in a manner suited to these needs, all with real personal care which is the top priority with every member of the staff. The home exudes a feeling of warm friendliness and quiet contentment. At all times there is at least one member of staff present, attending to the slightest need of any resident.
