Reviews

9.8 Cairnie Lodge Care Centre has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.793)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Cairnie Lodge Care Centre 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 32 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Cairnie Lodge Care Centre in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 18 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 4.793 for Cairnie Lodge Care Centre is calculated as follows: ( (306 Excellents x 5) + (64 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 376 Ratings = 4.793

  • 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 Cairnie Lodge Care Centre is based on 18 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 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 18 Reviews ÷ 12 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 mum has been a resident of this home for over 2 years now, although her health is now getting worse. She is still treated with care and respect. All staff are willing to help and have a friendly greeting when you meet them. They supply a home where residents feel safe and cared for. We are very happy with the care she receives and are glad we chose this home for her.

My father was in Cairnie lodge for a very short time - two weeks before his death. I was there for quite a while during that time. The care, kindness and compassion that all the staff showed towards my father were fantastic. This was also shown to me. Staff were very helpful and could not do enough. I found the experience very humbling and I cannot thank the staff at Cairnie Lodge enough. My sincere thanks and best wishes to all.

I came here last week of September 2017 after having a hip and knee operation in hospital coming here for rehab. I have been very pleased with the whole experience. Both the comfort of the room and the very helpful staff made my staff most pleasant and helped greatly in my recovery. I would most certainly recommend it.

HC-One, Careline Team at Cairnie Lodge Care Centre responded to this review on 04 Aug 2016:

Thank you for taking the time to review Carnie Lodge. I am pleased that you had such a good opinion about the care staff and nurses. We have taken on-board your comments regarding the meals and have conducted a meal survey which we are now acting on.

I have found this a fantastic support to Mum and our family. Everyone has gone out of their way to help us and keep us informed. Mum has had first class care in a really lovely environment.

My mother was a resident at Cairnie Lodge for eleven years. She was a much loved and respected resident. Every member of staff took the time to speak to her even though my mother couldn't answer back. I couldn't fault anyone or anything. From the domestic staff who would come in and have a good chat. The nurses are incredible and the carers don't get the recognition they clearly deserve. They go beyond their duties and would do anything to help. I will forever be grateful for the love and care given to my mother.
