Overview

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Rutherglen Care Home 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 45 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Rutherglen Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 out of 5 from 26 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.611 for Rutherglen Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (373 Excellents x 5) + (123 Goods x 4) + (37 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 537 Ratings = 4.611

  • 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 4.578 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Rutherglen Care Home is based on 26 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 45 positive Reviews (225 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 26 Reviews ÷ 45 Target = 0.578

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

9.2 Rutherglen Care Home has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.189) from 45 Reviews

My mother suffers from Alzheimer's disease. She became a resident in 2018 as she could no longer live by herself. As a family, we are so grateful our mum is at Beechwood House. Every single member of the staff has treated our mum with dignity and respect ensuring that mum is treated as an individual. As a family, we are grateful to Beechwood for taking such wonderful care of our mum. Staff are also so kind and respectful to all our family as well. We can't thank them enough.

My mum is very content in Beachwood, the staff are fantastic and very caring and show empathy when dealing with residents, they all deserve an award for their work. I cannot praise them enough.

My mum is in the Woodburn Unit and is well cared for. Staff are key when there are changes or issues, this is reflected in my mum's behaviour and happiness. More people for arts and crafts and outings would be amazing. A need for IT capabilities would add so much, she is unable to use a mobile of her own but for her, us and England based family to be able to email to her pictures etc would so very much help our communication.

Many thanks for this positive review. I note your concerns regarding technology and am delighted to tell you that this an area which Advinia, our new owners, are also extremely interested in pursuing. We are lucky in that we already have a pretty good Wi-Fi system installed and we are now looking at what hardware would best suit to take advantage of new ideas.

All staff, from unit manager to nurses to the housekeeping staff, have been wonderful since our aunt came to stay. They are so attentive and kind to her. When visiting I see them work hard to make everyone happy.

It is easy for the people who work here to feel occasionally underappreciated, it can be a hard job, but when you see such positive feedback from families, like yourself and our residents, it makes all the effort worthwhile. The people who work here choose this because they go home at night knowing that they have supported someone, made them laugh, or held their hand while they cried, not just a job, a vocation.

Very pleased with everything.

Staff are very caring and ensure that my mother is happy, well looked after and secure. Cannot praise the staff highly enough. They are a very dedicated team.

No matter how many meetings I have with staff, or how many times they are told by managers they are doing great, it is never as well received as it is when families and residents take the time and effort to praise them. Because of the dedication and commitment demonstrated on a daily basis by staff, I am proud to be part of their team. Many thanks.

We have only moved into the home in October 2017 and not only has my mother positively responded to her new environment but my life has been totally transformed with all previous responsibilities being taken over to my satisfaction.

Many thanks for taking the time to write this review. Staff are regularly recognised by their managers, but it so pleasing when relatives respond as you have. I will ensure that your kind words are passed on.

My aunt is well looked after. She is always clean and tidy. I am confident that she is being well cared for as I do not live nearby and only visit once a week. The staff are excellent, not only in the way they deal with my aunt but also in their care for me. They are always willing to answer any queries I may have. They get to know relatives too and you feel part of what is going on.

I am so pleased that you have taken the time to send this review, thank you. Visiting weekly still gives you some precious time with your aunt. We do try to involve all our visitors in the life of our home, looking for ideas or ways we could make living here even better. One of the best things about these reviews is the smiles from staff when they realise it is their caring attitude and approach which is being highlighted.

From all our past visits over many years, we visit our parishioners from the past as well as other residents. We find everyone very happy and content and we enjoy spending time and chatting about people they associated with in the past.

The whole atmosphere is wonderful and the staff treat all with great respect and are very helpful and welcoming.

Thanks for taking the time to write in. I will ensure that the staff are aware of your positive views. They really appreciate the recognition from families more so than colleagues, it means a lot.
Many thanks.

My mother has now been in care for 8 months. We have only had one review when she entered at the beginning. It was excellent. I now feel that the standards are not the same. There are too many staff changes causing confusion for the residents and families. Members of my family have found medication on the floors which I feel is unacceptable. We also have to ask staff to take my mother to the toilet.

Firstly, thank you for this review, and although it saddens me to read it, I am glad you are able to express your views on behalf of your mum.
We strive very hard to provide high quality care and where we appear to fall short, we all take it very personally and will try our best to ensure we regain your confidence. I will personally investigate your concerns and contact you separately.

As a resident who has dementia and dysphasia, I was finding it hard to cope on my own at home, even with family support. Since coming to Rodger Park (Rutherglen) I've had problems fitting in but all the staff have been very helpful and supportive which has helped me to settle down. This is my home now and I have accepted that but it has taken months to achieve but I believe I have reached that goal now.

Many thanks for letting people know how your experience in a Care Home has been. There are so many examples in the media demonstrating bad support and care. For us at Rutherglen, it is a journey, not filled with dread, rather a place to live with compassion and laughter.

The staff at Melrose are excellent, they are always helpful and take very good care of the resident no matter what time of day we visit.

Have no complaints regarding the staff and the care they provide for my husband. The unit and rooms are in need of upgrading or at least decoration.

Highly recommend Rodger Park (Rutherglen) staff. They are kind, polite and helpful and information regarding father stays up to date which is reassuring to the family. The family is happy with the care provided and would happily recommend the care home to anyone.

Over the past 4 months, I had both parents in Woodside Unit, my father very sadly had Parkinsons plus and has now died. My mother has dementia.
The caring staff have been wonderful, everything from the caring for both parents to dad's palliative care was so thoughtfully organised and handled so sensitively.
Mum has been a bit down since dad died 3 weeks ago, not quite realising why but again the staff realise this and encourage her to take part in activities.
She has been in the home now for 18 months and the home has never let us down in the care and keeping her occupied.

I visit the home to see a friend of my late mother, and although she was a reluctant admission she is being looked after fantastically well. She has put on weight and her walking is much better. She has made some friends and is very fond of those who look after her.
I always enjoy going to see her and am no longer worried about her welfare.

Many thanks.

After spending four months in hospital, where staff do not get him up, my brother moved into Rodgerpark. Within two days they had him up with clothes on and enjoying meals in the dining room. The following week he was walking with a zimmer. The week after that he was walking unaided.
Within a month he was enjoying a trip to the coast (he has spent the last.... months housebound or in hospital) with the staff. Within two weeks he had put on nearly a stone in weight. The staff are very caring and helpful. Nothing phases them. They are also very welcoming to me and other visitors. He is enjoying himself and now looks on Rodgerpark as home. As far as I am concerned, the above is a miracle.

I am writing this because I come to visit a resident. I am actually very pleased with the attention she is receiving - when I come to visit the staff are so friendly and in the short time I have been coming I'm known to them all by name. The staff always ensure that the cleanliness is maintained and I can make tea or coffee as I am visiting her in her own home. Altogether wonderful care home.

Mum was fortunate to be admitted here in September 2016 and has continued to thrive ever since. Prior to admission she had several strokes and was diagnosed with dementia. Her care and attention to detail from all members of staff has been exemplary. They consider her particular needs and implement a client centred approach when dealing with her on a daily basis. This is not a one size fits all place. Since admission, she has continued to put on weight and her mood is one of contentment. She is encouraged to participate in a variety of activities including arts and crafts and karaoke which has always been a passion of mums.

My mum is well cared for by very attentive staff who are all very fond of her. This has been the case for nearly ten years now.

Very pleased, mother is doing very well. She seems to be eating a lot better. There is lots of entertainment to keep her happy and the staff are very helpful.
Friendly and attentive and I could not ask for any better.
Personally, I wish I could stay here myself. 10 out of 10 Thank you.

My aunt has settled into the Home, her bedroom is always clean and tidy, any maintenance is sorted out relatively quickly. I have a nice rapport with the staff and they are courteous to my aunt. Over Christmas and New Year the unit was decorated with Christmas Tree, lights and decorations which brightened up the lounge for the residents. There was also a Christmas Party for the residents and family members which was enjoyed by all.

December was a lovely time in Rodgerpark. They decorated the lounge and hallway with beautiful Christmas baubles and a lovely twinkling Christmas tree.
The Christmas party was a fabulous afternoon, we had nice food, drinks and great music and dancing. My brother won a few prizes in the raffle which delighted him. Everyone enjoyed the party. Many thanks to all the staff for making Christmas a special time.

Staff are always on hand to help with any queries I have. My dad gets treated with respect and the care required for his needs. If there are any concerns regarding my dad, I'm contacted by telephone. Our family were very apprehensive about taking dad from his own home but he has settled in extremely well

My relative has been well cared for and fed. Having the care and attention has improved my relatives quality and quantity of life. If all palliative care homes had the same structure of management then other ill elderly people would be happy and not afraid of going into care.

Anything I have asked as regards my relative has been answered or dealt with quickly and efficiently. The staff needs more "hands" at meal times and toilet times as these are the busiest and everything "needs" at the same time.

Dad's personal care with staff has been good he has also got great relationships with some of the staff they have learnt his needs quickly. Although had problems in the past with some issues we feel after having meeting with everyone these seem to have been resolved. We have got a great relationship with most of the staff and they are always willing to help with any issues that we have. Dad joins in any activities when he is well enough to do so and as a family we enjoy these times with dad.
