Reviews

8 Morningside Care Home has a Review Score of 8 (8.048)

The Review Score of 8 (maximum of 10) for Morningside Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Morningside 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.

  • 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 4.967 for Morningside Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (58 Excellents x 5) + (2 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.967

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

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 12.4 positive Reviews (62 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 12.4 Target = 0.081

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

My Mum has dementia and putting her in a Care Home was the last thing I wanted but it is the best decision I made. My Mum is happy, relaxed and content and this is down to all the staff at Morningside. My Mum is very well looked after, is always busy with organised activities and has made some great friends. The staff are very approachable and treat my Mum with respect and dignity, nothing is every too much trouble. I would highly recommend this home.

Thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to give such lovely feedback about Morningside Care Home, we always appreciate feedback in relation to our service but most importantly your feedback will help others looking for care for their loved one to make a decision based on the views of people who live within the care home.

My friends mum is a resident at Morningside. On entering I was impressed how beautifully kept and how welcoming the care home was. I could see by looking around how much the care of the residents means to the staff. Walking through we were greeted by smiles and even though you could see that some of the ladies and gentlemen had memory problems, you knew just by the way the staff acted around them that they felt safe and valued. I absolutely loved that the doors were made to look like house doors (a wonderful touch). I met a couple of members of staff who knew my friends mum well and gave over information, a lovely personal thing to do, as it's not easy for a family to leave their love one in someone else's care. The list of activities were brilliant and all geared around stimulation and making the clients happy. All in all a wonderful place. I would highly recommend Morningside to anyone who needs excellent care for their love one.

Thank you for taking some time to provide such a positive feedback of your experience of Morningside Care Home. This is appreciated by the staff and will be a valuable report for people searching for a care facility to review, provide reassurance and assist them in making the difficult decision in respect of someone they love.

I would have no reservations in promoting the Morningside Care Home. I personally know other families who have had or currently have relatives in the home, and all are of the same opinion that the home is excellent. This fact was corroborated by the staff of the "Care Of The Elderly" ward at our local hospital.
