Meigle Country House, Blairgowrie, Perth & Kinross

Meigle Country House is situated amidst Perthshire's rolling and tranquil countryside a short drive from Dundee and its scenic location is of positive benefit to the 23 clients it caters for currently.

Meigle Country House was completely renovated in 2003 allowing us to blend modern facilities with traditional country style and comfort and the benefits from a range of up-to-date nursing equipment.

It is extremely popular with residents and their families, offering first class accommodation and facilities in common with their other care homes and there is a well used short break and respite care facility available which gives family carers the opportunity for a welcome rest.

Clients are offered a wide range of excellent facilities and services, including entertainment, local excursions and fundraising events at the home which are held throughout the year for clients and families and the local community.

The home baking is always a welcome treat for clients and experienced catering staff provide varied seasonal menus which are assessed for nutritional value and dieticians are consulted whenever specialist dietary requirements arise.

Reviews

8.8 Meigle Country House has a Review Score of 8.8 (8.808)

The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Meigle Country House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Meigle Country House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.6 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 4.188 for Meigle Country House is calculated as follows: ( (19 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (7 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.188

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 4.62 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Meigle Country House 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 4.6 positive Reviews (23 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 4.6 Target = 0.870

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

I find that all the staff take good care of my mother. The staff inform the family if there are any issues that need attention. There are not enough activities to keep the residents brain active.
All residents are well groomed and clothes are always clean.
None of the resident's smell of urine, they are always toileted when required.
Visitors are made welcome and can at any time talk to staff about their resident's welfare and how they have been since their last visit.

Veronica Gibson, Director at Meigle Country House responded to this review on 22 Aug 2017:

Dear I W,

Thank you for taking the time to review Meigle Country House Care Home. We are very pleased that you find the overall standards at the home to be excellent. We are disappointed to hear that you feel the activities offered are not up to the standard you would expect for your mother. Our activities co-ordinator has a varied activities programme open to all clients. Some of the activities on offer are one-to-one whilst others are group based. There are also organised events and entertainment such as Zoo Lab, Singers / Entertainers. The care team at Meigle also participate in meaningful activities with clients on a daily basis. We encourage all clients to take part in activities whilst respecting each individual's choices. We greatly appreciate your feedback, good and bad, as this will allow us to continually improve and maintain our standards.

The home has a lovely atmosphere. Try and make sitting areas relaxed without chairs in a line or semi-circle. Quiet areas or busier areas are catered for. Staff always friendly, helpful and really build up good relationships with their residents.

Meigle Country House Care Home provides a high standard of care in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. My dealings with the managers and staff have always been productive and I have felt fully supported in my aim to have the best possible outcomes for my mother. I have been freely able to seek their advice and reassurance as to appropriate engagement with my mother as her dementia progresses. I am satisfied that the staff treat my mother extremely well and demonstrate a genuine fondness for her in their interactions. Of particular note is the effort made to provide wonderful home cooked meals, with meal choices that encourage healthy eating.
My extended family visit frequently and feel welcomed whatever time of day they call in. Throughout several months of visiting, none of us has had any cause for concern over the care my mother receives. Indeed, we feel that a place at Meigle Country House Care Home has been the best possible outcome from a challenging and emotionally fraught situation.
