Reviews

9.5 Craigbank Care Home has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.463)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Craigbank Care Home 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 20 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Craigbank Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 11 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 4.561 for Craigbank Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (152 Excellents x 5) + (66 Goods x 4) + (19 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 237 Ratings = 4.561

  • 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 4.902 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Craigbank Care Home is based on 11 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 12.2 positive Reviews (61 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 11 Reviews ÷ 12.2 Target = 0.902

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

The staff, both in the dementia ward and generally, are very attentive. They provide a caring service to residents who are in varying degrees of frailty and mental disintegration.

My brother recently came to stay at Craigbank and he has had his first review. He has settled in well. The management and staff have been very welcoming and helpful to him and the family who are still getting used to the whole situation. I feel sure that as time goes on, he will with the help of the management and staff, continue to enjoy life at Craigbank.

I've been met with nothing but politeness from every member of staff that I've spoken to concerning my brother. You never know before you visit what staff in the wards have to put up with and I can only admire and appreciate each and every one of the staff for the job that they do.

Although I am not able to visit my brother as often as I would like, each time I do visit I am impressed by the air of calm and contentment. The interaction between staff and residents is also a pleasure to witness. It is evident from their interactions that the staff have the necessary knowledge and skills to manage the many demands upon their time and attention while remaining patient and good humoured. Although I have not seen many activities take place, there is evidence that the residents do participate in various activities. I believe that my brother enjoys music sessions, one to one time with staff and outings. The new work shed project should also hold his interest. Each time when I have to leave, it is made easier in the knowledge that my brother is being well cared for and that his individuality is being both respected and appreciated.

I've had a lot of help from my husband's home in a lot of ways. I find that any staff that I have spoken to have helped me, I haven't found any staff that hasn't been pleasant and I know my husband is getting the best of care that can be.

For 3 years, my friend has been a resident at Craigbank Home. With the present manager, I have seen great improvements to the property. New flooring, painting and a big effort to improve the garden areas. All of this has a positive effect on residents and visitors.
I have experienced great warmth from the staff and a knowledge and understanding of the resident's nature, conditions and needs. What a demanding job and how grateful I am to them for all the care shown to my friend, particularly in her final days, spent so comfortably there.

There are no words to say how much better my dad's care is now to before, it has given him a new life. I can come away now and have peace of mind rather than the worry and stress. Since my dad went into care two years ago, it has been a living nightmare. Now he is getting the care and love he should have had from day one. The staff cannot be any more caring. I know my dad is now in safe hands. I would like to say to all the staff a big thank you. I know he has been there for a short time but I can see a big difference in him, he has a new life now. Thanks to all the staff looking after him.

My wife has been in Craigbank for two and a half years and in that time I have been totally happy with the overall care and welfare that my wife receives. The home is very well run by all members of staff, from cleaners up to management. The staff are all brilliant. I know that my wife is very well cared for and all her needs as far as I can see being met. But most of all I can sleep easy knowing that she is safe and that's because of the dedication of all members of staff.
