  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 1 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Allanbank Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.1 out of 5 from 1 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 5 for Allanbank Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (12 Excellents x 5) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 5

  • 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 3.075 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Allanbank Care Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 13.4 positive Reviews (67 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 13.4 Target = 0.075

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

8.1 Allanbank Care Home has a Review Score of 8.1 (8.075) from 1 Reviews

Reviewer Connection to Allanbank Care Home

  • Niece of Resident/Service User

My uncle received amazing care during the year he spent at Allanbank. The staff were so dedicated and caring and always went above and beyond for those in their care.
I cannot praise Allanbank highly enough for the work they do and know that it was because of the care my uncle received that we had this final year with him which I am so thankful for. We live a two-hour drive from Dumfries so could only visit once a week, though I phoned daily and spoke to my uncle, but never doubted he was in safe hands at all times. If there were any concerns about my uncle the staff phoned me immediately and felt they were like extended family to us.
