Reviews

8.1 Dundoran has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.103)

The Review Score of 8.1 (maximum of 10) for Dundoran 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 6 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Dundoran in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.597 for Dundoran is calculated as follows: ( (44 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 72 Ratings = 4.597

  • 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 3.506 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Dundoran is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 7.8 positive Reviews (39 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 7.8 Target = 0.256

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

My mum went to Dundoran after her previous home said they couldn't manage her because of a downturn in her ongoing dementia. Dundoran have been marvellous with her. Since arriving she looks cleaner, always nicely dressed and altogether seems more settled and a lot happier.
The staff seem to genuinely care and like the residents and are so warm and caring towards my mum.
The staff will ring me if there are any problems with mum's health and are very proactive in giving and getting mum the best care possible.

This nursing home is a really nice friendly home. The staff are all kind and really great at their jobs. The home is clean and tidy. The rooms are nice and clean. The nurses are all fantastic. The management do a great job. The chef and kitchen staff do a fantastic job. The food is first class and they do whatever they can to feed mum whatever she likes. I am so happy we found this home for my mum I doubt there would be a better one.

I live a long way away from the nursing home and can only visit at certain times. However the home has always been very courteous and helpful and I am confident they are taking good care of my mum who is aged 103.

My husband had a massive stroke, heart attack and lost the use of his right side and has vascular dementia. This happened on the 5th November 2015. He was in hospital for eight weeks and slowly improved, i.e he was able to walk with aids, but very unstable. His dementia also seemed to be worse. Eventually he was in an assessment ward and was discharged on Boxing day. I had found a care home Dundoran, as I am 84 and he is 87. I felt I would not be able to manage at home. It was a hard decision for me but I know I did the right thing as he is settling down, is eating well, and is walking with the aid of carers. I know he is getting well looked after. Excellent management and carers who take their job seriously. I made a good decision.
