Collisdene Care Centre is situated in the beautiful town of Strathaven, set amongst landscaped gardens with open views of the surrounding rural area. The home is located near to Strathaven Park with its well tended gardens and scenic railway.

Collisdene has been extensively remodelled with the creation of three separate units. The Elderly unit provides nursing care to elderly nursing or residential clients over the age of 65. The Learning Disabilities units provides specialist care and support for adults with learning difficulties. All units have dedicated, multi skilled nursing teams who work with a person centred approach, adapting to residents' needs. The teams ensure that Collisdene is a happy, welcoming and homely environment for all residents.

Day space consists of a lounge and dining room in both units with a sensory room located in the Learning Disabilities unit that offers clients a comfortable and calming environment. All bedrooms are single occupancy with ensuite facilities and are located on two floors with passenger lift access to the first floor.

All client rooms and communal areas are fitted with a call bell system so that staff assistance can be obtained quickly and easily.

Collisdene has a lovely patio area with a beautiful secure garden where residents can walk, sit with visitors or do a little gardening.

All units have a dedicated Activities Organiser who provides a range of activities to residents to promote stimulation and wellbeing and to ensure their support needs are met. There is a varied and extensive weekly activities programme which includes outings and in house activities.

Collisdene Care Centre is passionate about client care; the dedicated management and staff ensure that Collisdene is a home from home for all residents.

Reviews

8.6 Collisdene Care Centre has a Review Score of 8.6 (8.563)

The Review Score of 8.6 (maximum of 10) for Collisdene Care Centre is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.3 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Collisdene Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 4 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 4.313 for Collisdene Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (24 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.313

  • 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 4.25 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Collisdene Care Centre is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 0.500

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

I am pleased with the standard of care and accommodation my mother is receiving and I would recommend Collisdene to others in our town, who were looking for a care provider.

I would like to see improvements to the facilities in the elderly unit in the common room, perhaps a change of layout with additional seating for visitors, and an extra table to sit around.
