The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Ashley Lodge Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 19 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ashley Lodge Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.735 for Ashley Lodge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (179 Excellents x 5) + (35 Goods x 4) + (11 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 226 Ratings = 4.735

  • 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 beds. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered beds 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 4.909 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashley Lodge Care Home is based on 14 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 15.4 positive Reviews (77 registered beds ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 15.4 Target = 0.909

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

My friends moved into Ashley Lodge Care Home in April 2015. Whilst in there they have received kind and caring attention. The staff are of the highest calibre and nothing is too much trouble. Sadly, one of my friends passed away and the staff are managing the partner left behind. My friend was married for many years. This could be a very traumatic situation but the staff are showing their caring side and help my friend to come to terms with her loss. I would and tell people what high standards Ashley Lodge Care Home achieves. The staff with their care for the residents make a home like environment for all.

At first, everything was alien to me but as the weeks have flown by things slot into place and you start to feel part of a very dedicated homely family, when all my needs are sorted out then things settle down and everybody does their bit of duty and everybody's happy.

I cannot praise highly enough the team at Ashley Lodge Care Home, not only for their loving care of mum but also of me. Nothing was ever too much trouble and I really felt that we mattered.
Continuing improvements i.e. sensory room and garden means that an already wonderful home just gets better.
My sincere thanks to all the staff for making a very difficult time bearable.

About a year ago I left a very positive review about Ashley Lodge but since then a number of issues have caused me to alter my view of the home. Let me say, first of all, that the care staff and nurses are outstanding - always showing great care and commitment to the residents. The problems arose due to inadequate staffing levels, over-reliance on agency staff (who do not know the residents of course) and poor overall supervision. I visit my uncle twice a week and I began to find situations that were unacceptable. It seemed that staff were stretched thinly and any major issue left them struggling, despite their best efforts. My concern for my uncle's welfare led to me considering moving him to another home and this was accomplished recently.

From the moment we went to view Ashley Lodge we were impressed with the friendliness of everyone, especially the managers. They both come over as very enthusiastic and caring people. We were also impressed with the activities lady, whose energy seems boundless to provide the residents with as much stimulation as possible. The cleanliness and decor is top rate, and also the food menu is vast and varied. I'd certainly choose Ashley Lodge in my old age especially with the managers, plus carers still there.

All the staff that my husband and I have met have been extremely caring and friendly, the whole place has a good atmosphere. Records and my mums care plans are well kept and always up to date, on the odd occasion I have asked a question the staff have been able to show my the answer either in her care plan in her room or in her notes held at the nurses station.

Mum is happy at Ashley Lodge, is kept clean with clean clothes, she is encouraged to get up and dressed each day and goes to the dinning room to eat with the other residents. There is time for activities and socialising in the afternoon. There is a nice garden surrounding the home and plans to put in extra plants which have been donated by local firms.

Following a difficult period in hospital my wife came to Ashley Lodge. She has considerable trouble with pain and anxiety. The nurses and staff are working with my wife's GP to bring these issues under control. My wife enjoys the company of other people and the staff are making every effort to help her get out of bed each day and attend various activities. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. I feel that they not only support my wife but also myself and my family. I have every confidence that my wife is in the best of care and will make progress according to her capabilities.

The Gentleman I come to see has only just come into Ashley Lodge Care Home, I was worried as he doesn't like change, But he has settled in very well. He couldn't have more care given if they tried. Everything and everyone have made him very happy which is a load off my mind. I've cared for him for over 20 years, so it has been a worry to get him settled. I am more than pleased with his care and its a joy to come & visit him and know he is well looked after. Well done and a big thank you to you all.

The home looked after my Aunt for close to four years. She has been comfortable and well cared for by staff that were often her friends. The care she received was excellent and the staff almost always friendly to her and her family. I was always kept informed when health professional were called or when she had a fall.

My mother has been resident since October 2015, and the quality of the home and staff is excellent, she has found a home from home and even refers to Ashley Lodge as home now.

It was probably the best choice we have ever made and have no hesitation in recommending anyone

The care at Ashley Lodge is outstanding with everyone going the extra mile to ensure that residents have the best possible care even when they are under pressure. It is so refreshing to see how staff dress up on special occasions and make a fuss when it is a residents birthday just as if the resident was part of their own family. Having visited a number of residential homes it is also full credit to staff that everything at the home is so clean and that there are absolutely no unpleasant smells - well done!

Mum was recently rushed into hospital from the home. The staff acted promptly, with care and expertise to ensure that an ambulance was called and that Mum was reassured and comforted whilst waiting for the ambulance to arrive. During Mums hospital stay, the staff were regularly in touch with the hospital to see how she was. When Mum returned to the home she was warmly welcomed back by the staff who were pleased to see her. I had total confidence in the staff during this emergency and was also impressed by the way in which they kept me informed about what was happening.
