Reviews

8.5 Barchester Ochil Care Home has a Review Score of 8.5 (8.497)

The Review Score of 8.5 (maximum of 10) for Barchester Ochil Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Barchester Ochil Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.0 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 4.5 for Barchester Ochil Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (28 Excellents x 5) + (16 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 48 Ratings = 4.5

  • 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 3.997 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Barchester Ochil Care Home 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 16.2 positive Reviews (81 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 16.2 Target = 0.247

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

During her respite care, Mum has been treated with care, humour and vigilance. The quality of reporting has been excellent and as relatives, we have been fully included and informed. Mum's care has been a life saver. Food is excellent and safety brilliant. It has been a privilege to have Mum cared for at Ochil, especially in this transition towards permanent care. Thank you sincerely.

Our mum was upstairs in the Ochil for only a short time but would highly recommend this care home. The attention our mother received was second to none, staff very attentive to mum and given the best care we could have asked for. The meals were fab and plenty to drink and always fresh fruit and great home baking. Her room was great always clean and tidy.
Her clothes were always immaculate and well dressed.
She used to get her hair done regularly which she loved and the hairdresser was very good, mum always had a good hair do. All the nursing staff were terrific with us as well as mum, would not hear a bad word said about any of them, family atmosphere was always there. For all that they have done, we thank them lots and lots xx

My husband, who is in the special needs unit of Ochil Care Home, has continued to improve during the two and a half years since he arrived here.
His care and attention has been exceptional and I believe has played a large part in his recovery. The staff are friendly, yet professional in their work, which gives me great confidence in this care home.

I have two parents plus a father in law in the home. Overall, things are good. The staff are friendly and helpful. Sometimes I have to remind staff that my father in law can't get out of bed so his drinks need to be put in front of him. A few times, the cup/drink is left out of reach. This has been passed on. Downstairs in 'Memory Lane' - this unit works well with my mother. She seems very happy and staff will bring her upstairs to visit my dad.
