The Review Score of 8.8 (maximum of 10) for Avon Park Residential Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 4 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Avon Park Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4 out of 5 from 3 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 4.809 for Avon Park Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (38 Excellents x 5) + (9 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.809

  • 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 maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users 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 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Avon Park Residential 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 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 3 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.500

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

My aunt moved into Avon Park 18 months ago as she was no longer safe to live alone. Aged 92 she had recurrent falls. She was a shy and quiet spinster and the thought of moving was quite daunting. However, she was always treated with kindness and affection by the staff who had worked there for some time. It was nice to have that continuity, no unfamiliar faces she didn't know. She was always well dressed, clean and tidy, as was her room.
Food was good, well balanced, homely meals. I, as a visitor, was always made to feel welcome with cups of tea and I could stay for lunch with her if I wished. I was so worried to begin with that she wouldn't settle but I can honestly say I needn't have worried. I would recommend Avon Park to anyone. They were cheaper than a lot of others I visited and the Care Quality Commission score was excellent. My aunt has now sadly passed away but I will always be thankful to Avon Park for making her remaining life carefree and enjoyable.

My sister and I were in a guardian position of looking out for our lovely late dear aunt.
From the fist time, we contacted the home the care, help and support from the owners and all the staff was outstanding!
A light in the dark for us when our dear relative needed respite care and eventually full-time residence. This lovely home provides professional care and the highest provision in warmth, kindness and all catering requirements for residents needs and comfort. The high standards are set at the top and cascade down, this home provides an exceptional standard of care for residents and family. We would highly recommend this lovely clean caring residential home. A grateful thanks to all the staff for making our aunts stay so comfortable.

Visited friend and were offered refreshment on arrival. Found staff to be very happy and welcoming. It had a very nice feel to the place and the lunch we were given was of a high standard with fresh vegetables. It was our first visit and the owner was happy to give us a lift to and from the station which was much appreciated. We spoke with a few members of staff and they were all long serving and appeared to be very caring. The resident friend was very content to be there and told us the staff were very kind to her. Overall we were most impressed with Avon Park.
