The Average Rating of 4.917 for Balhousie Rumbling Bridge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (11 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 12 Ratings = 4.917
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:
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.
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.
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.

Review submitted from a Website Submission by Shelagh L (Daughter of Resident) on Sunday 1 April 2018. Relates to April 2018.
My mother has lived at Balhousie Rumbling Bridge for just over three years she is 98. Over that time I have been very impressed by the care she receives. My mum has dementia and we have good days and not so good days but the staff really work hard at supporting her in a very person centred way. Today was Easter Day and there was an entertainer and mum was joining in with the singing. Everyone got an Easter egg and had Easter Bonnets. It is always nice to visit and spend quality time with my mum and to know too that if they have any concerns regarding her health I will be contacted immediately. I still feel very involved in mum's care and feel that the staff work in partnership with me and are open to suggestions.
