This Review Score of 9.555 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.795 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 4.76 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the number of positive Reviews/Recommendations.

  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published (including Restricted Publication) Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.555 for Aughton Park is based on 19 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. 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 / service 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. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.795 for Aughton Park is calculated as follows: ( (182 Excellents x 5) + (38 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 224 Ratings = 4.795

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. 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 provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 4.76 for Aughton Park is calculated as follows:

      1. 19 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 19 Positive Reviews = 1.900 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (19 Positive Reviews ÷ 50 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.760

  • The Review Score is based on user Recommendations/Reviews submitted in the last 2 years. The maximum Review Score is 10. There are 5 Points available for the average of all ratings on users Recommendations/Reviews (Excellent 5, Good 4, Satisfactory 3, Poor 2, Very Poor 1).

  • As of 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk changed from Recommendations to Reviews (positive and negative comments) and added the Ratings Poor and Very Poor. These are marked up as Reviews. Between 1st July and 31st December 2015, we are still processing a number of Recommendations from Recommendation cards sent out before 1st July (These are marked up as Recommendations).

My mum has been a resident at Aughton Park since last April 2015. We are very happy with the care and support she has received. All the staff are friendly and approachable. They are also professional in all their dealings with us. It has been a great relief to me knowing my mum is well looked after.

My mother was admitted to Redcliffe wing (dementia unit) on a best interest assessment in August. My father following doctors recommendation moved in for respite care 2 weeks ago.
The care, kindness and support received from the wonderful staff at Aughton Park has been truly amazing. From the manager, assistant manager, senior staff and carers we have seen nothing but thoughtful considerate care and the attention to detail in care plans is second to none.

Aughton Park is a very nice well run care home. The staff are always friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the residents needs and they genuinely seem to care. The home itself is always clean and tidy and well maintained. There is an ongoing programme of activities and there are also quiet areas to sit in for those wishing to not take part. The residents themselves always look clean and well cared for and the atmosphere in the home is always cheerful and up beat. I visit many care homes as part of my job and find Aughton Park to be one of the best. I would be happy for one of my relatives to live there.

Michelle Morris, Home Manager at Aughton Park responded to this review on 03 Dec 2015:

Thank you for your suggestion. We will certainly do this where possible.

Aughton Park is a care home in the true sense of the word care. The staff really care for the residents. This is evidenced in the respect, kindness, patience and dedication they show. My father has now been living at Aughton Park for three years and I have been so impressed with the care he has received. I have never had cause to worry about him. I can't recommend Aughton Park highly enough.

Aughton Park staff assisted me in my efforts in trying to re-locate my mother into a care home a lot closer to where I live. They were supportive, understanding and showed great empathy. As events unfolded my mum wants to stay put in Aughton Park and they have warmly embraced this decision.

My dad has Alzheimer's and reached the stage where he could no longer have a good quality of life living independently so he is now a resident at Aughton Park. The family searched long and hard for a suitable care home and we are all so pleased with Aughton Park. This place is a real homely home - providing a high standard of care and truly holistic care. My dad loves the many activities on offer - well thought out activities and you can see on the faces of residents that how they enjoy them. I cannot praise the manager and staff enough. They are brilliant. Dad has made so many friends.

My mother has been resident in Aughton Park since April 2011 and throughout that time has received care of the highest quality. From the home manager to the senior carers to the most junior member of staff that I have met there is a continuity of standard. My mother is content and extremely appreciative of all that is done for her. We as a family are convinced that she would no longer be with us but for the efforts of all at the home to not only care for her but also make her feel valued and part of their "family".

We have known about Aughton Park for some years as a good friend and ex nursing colleague of my wife's was a resident there. Also both my wife and I had done some singing there for the residents. We gained a good impression all round of the facilities, staff and the happy feel to the home. So when my wife needed some urgent respite, we knew where she would be well cared for in lovely surroundings, also somewhere that would give me peace of mind that she was safe and sound. This has certainly been the case, they aided her recovery to regain her health in body and spirit, the process was the most excellent assistance and help to myself.

My mum has been a resident here since January 2014. It was a necessary move, as she loved alone in a large family house. I cared for my mum since my father passed away in Spring 2010. I am absolutely delighted with this impeccable standard of care offered here. My mum is loved, respected and encouraged to do as much as she can do to maintain a full life. I would recommend this care home wholeheartedly.

My sister in law has been a resident in the dementia unit at MHA for 3 years. During this time she has been cared for with great professionalism by management, care staff, activities co- ordinator and all employed in whatever category.
For any relative or friend with someone in a care home it is so good when you can have peace of mind and confidence that someone you care for is being looked after in your absence with care, respect and dignity.
If ever myself or my wife require high standards of care we would have no problems coming here and would recommend Aughton Park MHA care home to anyone.

My mother who had dementia and received excellent care from trained staff. My mother in law had all her faculties and having received respite care for a while could not find any other home as good as this nearer to where she had lived. As a volunteer now I witness on-going excellence in the care provided and in the activities arranged for the residents. The chaplaincy is an added bonus which the residents really appreciate.

From the moment I stepped into the home it was like a hotel clean, cheerful and inviting. Senior staff and carers all try to meet every aspect of resident family needs. Going away on holiday is a pleasure knowing that my mother is safe, secure and in a caring environment. I am kept in the loop over every situation, whether large or small. We feel part of a large family!
