Current Reviews

Review Score: 9.4 (9.376)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Astley Grange is based on 30 Review/Recommendations in the last 2 years. This Review Score of 9.376 is made up of a Quality Score of 4.376 Points (maximum of 5) relating to the rating and a Quantity Score of 5 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 9.376 for Astley Grange is based on 30 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 4.376 for Astley Grange is calculated as follows: ( (170 Excellents x 5) + (154 Goods x 4) + (29 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 356 Ratings = 4.376

    • 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 5 for Astley Grange is calculated as follows:

      1. 27 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 27 Positive Reviews = 2.700 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (27 Positive Reviews ÷ 37 Registered Beds) x 2 = 1.459 (maximum score = 1)

  • 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). There are 5 Points available for the total number of positive Recommendations/Reviews submitted in relation to the number of beds at the Care Home.

  • Before 1st July 2015 carehome.co.uk only accepted Recommendations (positive comments only) and the Ratings were limited to Excellent, Good & Satisfactory. These are marked up as Recommendations.

  • 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).

  • We receive approximately 15% of Reviews/Recommendations through website submission and 85% of Reviews/Recommendations through Review/Recommendation Cards (only available to Enhanced Listings more info).

The care home could be better if everyone put towards to make it better. Drinks are standard but food could be better. I am a fussy eater and don't like certain meats. Find it hard finding a meal which i will enjoy. I am not involved or been involved in any activities.

The staff are very helpful and caring. The home has excellent levels of cleanliness. My husband and myself noticed that staffing levels were very good, and members of staff were always available to answer questions or attend to any other requirements. We feel extremely satisfied that my Mum is being very well cared for.

Astley Grange was a wonderful place, nothing was too much trouble, either for the residents themselves or for the family. The transfer into the home was made easy and although we knew we would have to pay it seemed like whenever the payments were sorted out it would be ok, and my father would be taken care of until then unpaid. If dad said he wanted a bath he was given one straight away, if dad wanted bacon and egg for breakfast that is what he got. I can't speak too highly of this place.

My husband was in and out of hospital for quite sometime and me his wife and his son and daughter and the hospital decided it would be better if he was a resident in care/nursing home. My daughter after much searching found Astley Grange where he could be given both nursing care ans general care. The family are pleased Astley Grange was found. The nurses and carers are very good and are kind to family visitors. The premises are very clean and residents kept clean, regular manicures and hair appointments. Just one grouch I do not think the menu is attractive to encourage poor eating.

This residential and care home is in my opinion one of the top care homes in the district. It's staff are kind and considerate to all residents in their care. The home is spotlessly clean, the management and staff are always ready to help in any situation.
