  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 62 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.933 for Grampian Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (818 Excellents x 5) + (47 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 870 Ratings = 4.933

  • 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 Grampian Court Care Home is based on 62 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 11.4 positive Reviews (57 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 62 Reviews ÷ 11.4 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.

We want to say a massive thank you for all the care, friendship, love and support you gave to my Mam, but also to all the family during the final 3 months of my Mam's life. From the moment Mam came to stay in Grampian Court, you could feel the warmth of love from all the staff, no matter what role each of the staff played, everyone always had kind words to say to her. We saw a massive change in Mam, seeing this social butterfly emerging, brought on by inclusion and encouragement of the daily and social activities of the home and also encouraging friendships with other residents. Not only was my Mam loved, but we, the family, also felt the same love offered by each and every member of the staff. Her care was of the highest standards, always making sure all her needs were met, social, emotional, physical and nutritional. In her final days before her passing all the staff showed Mam so much love and concern. I was able to see the amazing care given by all the staff, both through the day and night. The staff made sure Mam was as comfortable and pain-free as possible by the inclusion of District Nurses and Doctors. Mam was shown and given, the dignity she deserved up to and on the day of her passing. We have been so impressed with how Grampian Court is managed. There was always an open door if we need to ask a question or just say 'Hello'. There were always smiles and recognition when we came in. Grampian Court always appears more like a 5* hotel than a residential home! We have been impressed by the high standard of care by all the staff. They are a credit to you and Grampian Court.

My nan was fragile and underweight when she came to Grampian Court. Leaving her home of many years was disorientating. The level of care she received from day 1 has been more than amazing, she soon got comfortable and health improved. However, of late she did take a steep drop in health and the care just got better than we could expect. All staff looked after both my nan and us as a family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

In November Mum needed emergency treatment and was hospitalised. Her condition was initially identified by staff who managed the situation extremely professionally. The hospital staff prepared her for discharge. She stated that she was 'ready to go home', identifying Grampian Court as her home - a fitting tribute to the care of Grampian Court. We were delighted at the atmosphere created by staff over the Christmas period - beautiful trees and quality decorations with activities to watch. As always, the food was excellent - two family members enjoyed a Christmas lunch with Mum. Our mother is 96 and is a 'feisty' lady with a strong will, but everyone has taken the time to get to know her (and us). We visit, ring and chat to staff almost as extended family. We know that whilst Mum appears as always to be 'in charge' she does this because of the support of staff and management. We are always aware that she is safe and cared for.

Just to offer our heartfelt thanks to management and staff for all their hard work, dedication and support in making Christmas so very special. I was absolutely dreading not having my husband home but I worried needlessly. We enjoyed greatly the time together, an amazing Christmas dinner. Good fun in a lovely happy atmosphere. Decorations were excellent. 100% first class all round performance. Very grateful thanks.

I tried several care homes to give my wife respite care, one even told me that they would not have her back again. Grampian Court was recommended to me by several contacts and after visiting and seeing the excellent conditions I needed to look no further. All the staff are caring and helpful and for myself, I can't praise the staff enough from the manager down to the cleaners. On the social side, there are activities going on and there are bus trips out. Thank you, Grampian Court.

The care and support given by staff and management at Grampion Court has been excellent. My mother-in-law was in hospital recently and without the support provided by management we would not have been able to get her home in time for Christmas. Successfully she returned to the home on Christmas Eve and the whole family shared a lovely Christmas Day with her.

Thanks to one and all at this excellent facility.

My experience is always warm and friendly. Staff helpful and welcoming. Nothing is too much for them. The food is top class. My aunt enjoys her meals and always has seconds of her porridge. Her bedroom is better than many hotels and always speaks of it as her room. She is never allowed to lie in bed all day but must spend the day in the common room with the other residents. Entertainment is provided which is the highlight of the month for her. A very professional carer.

My brother arrived in June this year and from the outset, he felt very comfortable with his situation here. Each time we visited he would remark on how nice the place is, likening Grampian Court to a hotel and saying how nice the staff are and how well they looked after him. On behalf of all of my brothers family, I would like to thank you all for the care and attention you all showed him. From the better of our hearts, thank you all.

We searched and reviewed care homes for Mam who is 95 years old and is diagnosed with early stage dementia. From first looking into Grampian Court, we found a happy environment, exceptional professionalism even when we called unannounced. We felt safe, supported and carefree, worry free.
Mam is precious to us and she is cared for. We have no worries/concerns as to her welfare and wellbeing.

The care my gran has received since day one has been exceptional. The attention to detail given to accommodate my gran's needs has been brilliant and has made the transition for our family easier.
The staff are extremely kind, helpful, supportive and friendly and treat my gran and all my family with the utmost respect. After an extremely difficult time. Grampian Court came at the perfect time. We can't thank them enough.

Clearly only in the first few months of care for my mother-in-law. I am however truly delighted with the care afforded, the condition of the place, the enthusiasm of the staff and the welcome of everyone involved - truly refreshing. The whole experience has taken a huge weight off our shoulders. Importantly I have seen my mother-in-law so happy for a long time and that says everything.

Although this is a relatively new home, after visiting my sister twice I have to say I am very impressed with the overall set up. From decor to staff, rooms, food and the general feeling of everything.

I could not fault the care home staff from top to bottom. They will do anything for you without hesitation. Everywhere the home is clean and the meals are that good that everytime I visit, I could pull up a chair and dig in! I would not hesitate to recommend anybody to use this home.

Grampian Court was our first choice for my mother, it is modern, clean and has everything to make a resident feel at home. The staff are very attentive and extremely pleasant and nothing seems to be a bother to them. Residents and family members are encouraged to be involved in social events, which makes for a friendly and relaxed environment. Overall Grampian Court is a shining example of a care home.

Following a 6 week stay in the hospital, it was decided that my mother required 24hour care.
We visited Grampian Court's open day and requested if she could be moved in. The home is way beyond our expectations with every need catered for.
The staff are amazing, caring and friendly, it is a home from home and my mother is very settled and comfortable.
As a family, we are made very welcome and are treated as part of the Grampian Court Family.
We are very impressed and would gladly recommend the home to anyone who asks.

My father came to the home approximately 4 weeks ago, the staff have been so helpful in allowing/assisting him to settle in.
The care he receives is excellent, he is encouraged top mix with the other residents. The staff are always helpful and friendly.
His room and facilities are excellent and the meals are very good.
He seems much more content and settled since he arrived at the home.
