Reviews

9.8 Linlithgow Care Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.833)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Linlithgow Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 30 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Linlithgow Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 23 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 4.833 for Linlithgow Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (303 Excellents x 5) + (52 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 359 Ratings = 4.833

  • 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 Linlithgow Care Home is based on 23 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 16 positive Reviews (80 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 23 Reviews ÷ 16 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.

My husband has now been in Linlithgow Care Home for nearly two years. During this time, his mental health ie dementia has followed the course that is expected. He has good days when he is alert, upbeat and full of stories, most of which follow a pattern of buying a new car, new suit etc. Other days he is quiet but again he can still surprise the family with things in his distant past he can remember. He has a good appetite and a strong heart which serves him well. He is almost totally immobile but his care is so good. He still has some quality of life.

My mother has been a resident of Linlithgow Care Home since 2007. Since that time my father and I have both been extremely pleased with the level of care mum has received. She is extremely well looked after both her physical and mental needs. She receives stimulation in the form of activities, trips and entertainment, she particularly enjoys the weekly choir. Her every need is met both in terms of food and any medical issues which have occurred and we are quickly informed of any problems.

We greatly appreciate the compassion and caring attitude of all the staff, not just to mum, but to my father and myself as well.

Linlithgow Care Home provides a warm, welcoming environment for both my mother and her visitors.
The staff did their utmost to keep her safe and well looked after.
After spending time in hospital it was good to see her socialising again.
The staff were like family and they were constant - always the same faces who knew both my mother and her visitors.
The home was clean, warm, bright and dispelled all the myths of care homes.
Thank you for making my mother's last few weeks comfortable.
We appreciated the quality time we spent in Linlithgow.

This is an excellent care home. From day one of my mother's stay at Linlithgow Care Home the standards experienced were outstanding. Staff were always attentive, caring and committed. My mother spent her final days here and died at the home in March 2017. The care and respect afforded her was outstanding as was the relationship of staff and our family. I cannot thank all staff and management enough.

My mother-in-law moved in February 2016. She was a little hesitant for the first few weeks. As time went on she was happier and after having lived in her house on her own for such a long time began to chat with carers and residents. It was a wonderful change seeing her go on outings, doing knitting, singing in the choir.
The staff are fantastic visiting morning or afternoon they are very attentive and happy to help. Being able to catch up with the nurse can also put our minds at ease. 10 our of 10 in my book.

The care my gran received in the last few days of her life was exceptional. All staff, from kitchen to domestic to care staff, were caring and attentive. She lived in Linlithgow care home for 3 and a half years and I couldn't fault a single thing. Every person who works in Linlithgow is caring, respectful and always willing to go over and above to help. My gran had dementia but was extremely comfortable, content and happy in her environment. My whole family will miss each and every member of staff.

Having looked at several suitable care homes, there was no doubt that it had to be Linlithgow Care Home for my mum and dad whom I moved down from Inverness. The environment and ambience of the home say it all along with the excellent support from the staff. Despite them both being very poorly, it was always uplifting visiting them in Linlithgow Care Home.

Since my mother came into this care home we have found the staff to be very warm and friendly. Their care to my mother herself has been excellent and nothing seems to be too much trouble for them. The home is purposely built which was an instant attraction to accommodate my mother, as her safety and welfare is paramount to us. The home itself is spotless and there is always something for the residents to do if they wish to take part. This care home is carefully thought our and run and is to be highly recommended for its care and nursing staff.

My Mum moved into the home at the end of May 2016. From the very minute she arrived, she was supported and encouraged to do as much as she could for herself. The manager and all the staff are excellent and we found that they always knew what she liked and how she had been each time we visited.

The home is very clean with good quality furniture and fittings throughout. There are lovely lounges for residents and visitors to use and the entertainment staff have a wide range of activities on offer. Mum seemed to enjoy the variety and quality of food on offer.

Sadly Mum's heath deteriorated (nothing to do with the home) but the nursing staff and local doctor involved us fully and kept us very well informed. In her last days, she was safe, comfortable and surrounded by compassionate and caring staff who made every effort to maintain her dignity.

The photos on this website do not do it justice as it has been refurbished to a very high standard.

My first impressions of the home as a clean, tidy and fresh place for my mother to live have been borne out in practice. The manager encourages swift action when we have questions or concerns and these are normally dealt with promptly and satisfactorily. My mother has become more alert and more mobile since arriving thanks to the entertainment and exercises on offer (and her own persistence). I have overall been very pleased by what I have seen.
