Overview

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Airthrey Care Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 15 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Airthrey Care Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.746 for Airthrey Care Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (142 Excellents x 5) + (26 Goods x 4) + (8 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 177 Ratings = 4.746

  • 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 Airthrey Care Nursing Home is based on 14 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 10.4 positive Reviews (52 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 10.4 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.

9.7 Airthrey Care Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.746) from 15 Reviews

Many thanks Jan for your kind review, so pleased your mum has settled into the home quickly and you are all involved so much in the team with her care.

For the short time my wife has been in Airthrey Care Nursing Home I have found the staff to be very helpful in keeping me informed as to her wellbeing. Which goes a long way to helping me cope with the situation.

Thank you for your very kind review. I'm so pleased that we are helping you cope with caring for your wife and we welcome you in the home at all times.

My friend had the pleasure of being in Airthrey care for nearly 4 years, the care home for me
was totally 5 Star and he received the best care in his latter years.
The staff are so attentive and caring towards the residents needs, the rooms are cosy and homely. I can’t recommend this nursing home enough with all needs being met for the residents by the nursing staff and every member involved from activities to entertainment. It was always a pleasure visiting the nursing home at any time and I feel I can still pop in from time to time as I’m always made so welcome.

Thank you Jacqueline for your kind words and review, the staff work extremely hard in ensuring a team approach is always met and you are welcome anytime, always a pleasure to see you.

My mother was a resident for the past 3 years until her recent death.
During her time in the home, the staff did an excellent job of taking care of her improving her health dramatically so that she enjoyed her time in the home.
The staff at all times were helpful and informative when any issues occurred or we had questions to ask.
Would happily recommend this care home to anyone.

Thank you Derrick for your review, the staff team work hard at ensuring we provide an excellent service. Many thanks for all your support.

My mum was a resident for four years until she died in September. In all that time, the staff at the home were excellent. Nothing was ever too much trouble. It was like my mum was staying in a 5-star hotel.

Would personally like to thank the staff for the personal service, could not have been treated/cared for better.

Thank you, Richard, for your lovely words and response.
The staff team work very hard at Airthrey in trying to achieve everything you have outlined.
Your mum is sadly missed in the unit.

My mother has been in this care home for 3 years. I would highly recommend this home for care, dignity, staff are excellent and a well-run home in all aspects of care. Staff very friendly and nothing is a problem to help my mother. I wish them every success in the future of the home.

Thank you for your lovely words Christina.

Our experience is that Airthrey Care Nursing Home requires more staff with life skill(s) within the carer remit as we feel and observed that although they are lovely individuals, they lack the knowledge to be able to provide the appropriate care and support for dementia residents.
There is a huge difference when the care support is more mature and experienced.

Dear Lesley
Many thanks for completing a review, it is always useful to get feedback to help us improve. I note your concerns and appreciate all your comments, I would be happy to meet with you to discuss these further and get specific feedback if that would be useful to you.
To provide reassurance, I can confirm that staff in the home have undergone a robust recruitment process and we do focus on life skills, experience and attitude and diversity for all roles. Staff training in dementia care is paramount and we also have a dementia champion within the home and work in line with Scotland’s Dementia Strategy and framework. Airthrey has recently been undertaking an Excellence project which involves Dementia care and has been involving the community in this – we would be delighted if you would like to join us in this venture.
Many thanks

Lovely home, staff very caring. Interact well with all the residents.
Always looking for ways to stimulate residents and provide interesting activities.

Thank you for your kind words, Glynis.

Airthrey Care Nursing Home has a welcoming atmosphere and is clean
and fresh. Being all on one level means there is easy access to both residents and relatives, and into the lovely enclosed central garden. Staff on both day and night duty are kind, caring and cheerful. Regular relatives meetings are held by the management team to keep us updated on home matters and staff changes and give us a chance to air any concerns. One of the great aspects of the home is the open door policy for relatives apart from meal times, I can visit my mum at any time of the day or night. The staff have nothing to hide they work at their best level all the time.

Thank you for your kind review Fraser.

I feel I am well looked after but as my mobility is very limited due to recovering from a broken hip earlier this year, I find my room difficult to move about in as the space is small and I use a zimmer. This makes it awkward to access the bathroom from my bed and the chair needs to be moved to the side. I am prone to falls and this is a concern as my eyesight is also bad.

Thank you Christine for your kind words. We do try our very best here at Airthrey and I am glad that you can see this.

My mother has now been a resident in Airthrey for just over a year and I cannot praise the manager and staff highly enough. The accommodation is second to none, bright, welcoming and always spotlessly clean and the residents are treated with respect and dignity at all times by every member of staff. Residents' family are considered as partners in care and are included in decision making and care planning for their family members.
