  • 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 4.042 for Ashwood House is calculated as follows: ( (10 Excellents x 5) + (7 Goods x 4) + (5 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 24 Ratings = 4.042

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 0 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashwood House is based on 0 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 0 = -0.25

    2. Target of 4.2 positive Reviews (21 registered beds ÷ 5). 0 Reviews ÷ 4.2 Target = 0

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

My dad has been here since the 19th of March this year and has been so well looked after ever since he has arrived. It is like a life changing move for all the family when your loved one goes into care. I speak for all my family when saying my dad and all our family have been treated with the utmost love and care, much more than we could have hoped for. As a result our dad is very happy to be there.

The care home is in need of refurbishment. It is very under staffed, but I find the staff who are there are dedicated and kind. My mother is as happy as is possible in a care home and well looked after. I have yet to meet the new manager, but my mother likes her so that is my only concern.
