  • 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.671 for Ashview Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (56 Excellents x 5) + (25 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 82 Ratings = 4.671

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 3.969 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashview Nursing Home is based on 3 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.5

    2. Target of 6.4 positive Reviews (32 registered beds ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 6.4 Target = 0.469

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

Good all round service most of the time. Only two little points; collecting crockery after meals could be quicker and not always left alone so you can go to the toilet.

The carers all amazing! Our mum only spent ten days at Ashview but the way we and she were treated was second to none! in her final hours. They were so helpful, kind and loving. They helped us with everything and really made us feel at ease. We would like to thank them all at Ashview from the bottom of our hearts.

It is so difficult when you realise that it is just impossible for one of your parents to continue living at home but Ashview Nursing Home really softened the blow. The staff are so lovely and the management team are really good and give you confidence that the best care is being given. I cannot praise all of the team at Ashview Nursing Home highly enough. The food is very good and my mother's room very homely. Thank you so much all of you, we really appreciate everything you have done for my mother.

My mother was brought to Ashview after more than 4 months in hospital. Her Capacity had deteriorated, although she could understand and communicate. She arrived very frail and seemed to be 'going down hill' After some very good attention to her - talking, coaxing, looking after her health she is returning to reasonable health and ability. The care staff do care and get involved with the patients and talk to them and there is a response and a positive feel within the home/community. Yes, the building could do with some TCL but the staff are the ones who make the patients feel wanted. My wife and I are very pleased with the respect and care my mother is receiving from Ashview. Thank you.

Having to leave a loved one in the care of strangers can be a worrying and stressful time but I have been very pleasantly surprised by the welcome and care shown by the staff at Ashview. My mother has dementia and has been living at Ashview for a few weeks now. The staff have shown how important it is treat each resident as an individual and to cater for those individual needs and I've enjoyed how some of the staff have struck up a relationship with mum already. There was a party when I was visiting once (complete with pub singer!) and the positive effect it had on the residents was wonderful to watch. The rest of the family have also been very impressed by Ashview so far and we feel a sense of relief that mum is in good hands.

I have nothing but praise for Ashview nursing home,and all the staff.
The manager, and another member of staff went to a lot of effort to accommodate my wife and Ion our short term stay, and all the staff are cheerful and willing to help at all times, day and night.

The food and accommodation is very good, and there is a large garden area.
I would have no hesitation to returning in the future.
