Reviews

9.3 Littleinch Care Home has a Review Score of 9.3 (9.276)

The Review Score of 9.3 (maximum of 10) for Littleinch Care 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 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Littleinch 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 5 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 4.695 for Littleinch Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (93 Excellents x 5) + (36 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 131 Ratings = 4.695

  • 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 4.581 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Littleinch Care Home is based on 5 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 8.6 positive Reviews (43 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 5 Reviews ÷ 8.6 Target = 0.581

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

My mother spent just over a year at Littleinch, and the care she received there was exceptional. Having become fairly reclusive in her later years and very reluctant to go into full-time care until her dementia made this unavoidable, Mum became more engaged, sociable and happy in a friendly, stimulating environment she quickly adapted to. She made new friends, rediscovered her love of singing along with Scottish music and was made to feel at home. Her medical care was first rate, the frequent minor infections which had resulted in several hospital admissions while living at home, being prevented or dealt with by the nursing staff before they became an issue. The staff's supportive approach to the family made a difficult time much easier for us as well as Mum, and the room in which she spent her last year was bright and homely. In her 93rd year, Mum sadly passed away, but the palliative care she received in her last days was respectful and of the highest standard. Thank you Littleinch!

Quiet rural location. Purpose built care home with full height windows allowing residents to see the grounds, trees etc. Friendly, caring staff who engage with the residents. Proactive medical care attending to problems as they arise. Communications between Littleinch Care Home are excellent and I have complete trust that they will contact me immediately should there be a problem. Choosing a care home was a difficult decision. Faced with the decision one year on, we would select Littleinch Care Home without hesitation.

I have complete confidence that my wife is receiving a very high standard of care. All staff including management are knowledgeable and very caring. My wife has been a resident for three years and I have had no cause for concern. Her medical needs are well understood and met. I can always contact someone if I need to. The staff are welcoming and I feel part of a community when I visit. The ongoing improvements to the building are making the home brighter and more interesting. I attend regular meetings with staff and feel that I am listened to and I am also well informed. I would recommend the home without hesitation or reservation.

My brother had just a short time in the home before he died. I felt he could not have had better care. He was treated with care and dignity. All his needs were met when needed. Very happy with the home.

I have found the care, patience and respect of the staff towards residents of an extremely high standard, giving me complete peace of mind. I have seen occasions where my patience would have been tried but gentle firmness with humour seems to do the trick. This applies across the board be it dining, medical, cleaning or caring staff watched over by a dedicated management team.

Mum was diagnosed with vascular dementia 15 years ago, after a stroke. The hospital's prognosis was for recurrences until death. With nothing possible medically, we sought a suitable care home. Littleinch seemed ideal having a pleasant location, attentive, friendly staff, well organised, with the residents' well-being foremost.

On her discharge, we expected mum's end anytime. Once in Littleinch, she was carefully nursed. She improved physically, recovering somewhat from the stroke.

The care gave her another 11 years. As predicted, her condition declined slowly. There were more mild strokes, all acted on immediately. Eventually, she died peacefully with no distress or discomfort, the staff being particularly attentive.

Littleinch was excellent re communication, and administrative matters, promptly informing of developments. Staff were friendly, helpful, professional, and were like Mum's "second family". We appreciate all their devotion, including their attendance at her funeral.

My dad was in a bad way before coming to Littleinch, having gone downhill rapidly after being admitted to A & E but with the care given to him after entering Littleinch he pulled round and began to thrive. I found the home to be a cosy and cheerful place with caring staff. Everyone was treated with dignity and respect. The entertainment provided, which I witnessed on visits, was very uplifting and generated a real feel good factor for users and their families, unfortunately dad, had Alzheimer's and it is a progressive cruel disease with no cure, but the staff did all they could possibly do for him in the sixteen months he was there until he passed away aged 96 in July. I have lovely memories of him sitting in the peaceful courtyard.

Our Grandfather was in Littleinch for 2 years until his death. The care shown by the staff was excellent and he settled in very quickly to a great routine, with lots to keep him entertained. The home is genuinely homely and the staff took great care of him. One thing he really enjoyed was the food - he never had any complaints about food which was one of the most important things for him!
Staff always informed us of any issues with his health or any falls. He was always well dressed, had his hair cut regularly and saw out his last years with dignity. Staff were always very helpful and friendly and always pleased to see us when we visited. Staff were brilliant at the end and made sure he was peaceful and given the best attention possible.

This is a peaceful, relaxing care home. The staff are very attentive and attend to all my mother's needs. She appears to be settling well now after a shaky start and that is all due to her care and attention received.

More than 50 years married my wife had to enter long time care. Supported by my family it was decided Littleinch Care Home would provide her care. That was 4 years past and I would say to families making this decision today, if every care home was like Littleinch Care Home, "The care inspectorate" could be made redundant. Not just carers at Sharp End, the management and administrators. It is not unusual to see house keepers, laundry staff etc take a resident by the hand caringly, considerate and respectful to all residents in their daily living.
