  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 22 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ash Grove Care Home - Specialise Dementia in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.4 out of 5 from 4 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 4.592 for Ash Grove Care Home - Specialise Dementia is calculated as follows: ( (179 Excellents x 5) + (61 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) + (3 Poors x 2) + (1 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 260 Ratings = 4.592

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.417 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ash Grove Care Home - Specialise Dementia is based on 4 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 3.75

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.667

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

I find this care home to be warm and welcoming, a home from home. The staff are plentiful and attentive to the residents.
The bedrooms are clean and kept tidy. There appear to be plenty of activities for the residents to join in if they want to.

All in all a good experience, we are happy with the standard of care.

Friendly and welcoming staff. Very attentive. Safe and secure building. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. Wide choice of food and drink where staff would make alternative meals if needed. All staff seemed fully updated on our mum's day to day well-being and would give unprompted updates when any of us arrived.
Great communications including phone calls to update as required.

I felt that towards the end of my nans stay it become more of a business than a home. The original girls especially were still very good. However, due to new management, the others seemed to lose their passion. The home lost its sparkle and became too procedure driven.
With a little love and genuine care the place could be great exactly how it was when we first moved nan in.

Puvi Sri, Director at Ash Grove Care Home - Specialise Dementia responded to this review on 18 Nov 2016:

This is an old review, related to a short term temporary manager and the manager was removed long ago. This reviewers grandmother was in our care home for 5 years. She was funded by ESCC Adult Social Care therefore; she was in a smaller room on the 1st floor for about 4 years. When she couldn’t walk Adult Social Care wanted to move her into a nursing home. But her daughter loved our care and services and doesn’t want her to move out of Woodville Rest Home and pleaded with us to keep her at Woodville. Therefore, we had made arrangements with Adult Social Care and the district nurse to keep her at Woodville. We never became nor moved towards business, during the care of this resident. When she was unable to walk, we gave her a room with one of the best facilities of the home, on the ground floor, without any extra charges (normally these rooms are for private clients).
You can see the resident's daughter's (Nikki W) review as well.
Currently, we have a new good manager, as well as our old same previous careers.

My Aunt has advanced dementia and is virtually immobile. She rarely understands when being talked to and cannot put a sentence together. The staff are warm, attentive, consoling and gentle. They give her little things to do like sorting teddy bears, not terribly tidy but she tries to put them in a box. I am always made welcome and see my Aunt clean and well dressed and looking smart.
Besides my visiting the home I get calls and updates about my Aunt.

My family have known this lady for a long time, so we came to the home to visit her. The staff were very hands on with the residents, making sure they have everything they need and are happy with everything. I am looking for a home for my mother and would be more than happy to have my mother in Woodville Rest Home.

My mother-in-law spent about 6-7 years in Woodville Rest Home and all I can do is give nothing but praise for this care home. Staff were always obliging and everything was never too much trouble for them. Staff were always obliging and every time I visited, I always felt welcomed and felt there was a very happy atmosphere. I was always given necessary information with regard to my mother-in-law on how things were, which made coping so much easier. I would always recommend this care home.

My mother was a resident at Woodville Rest Home for approx. 7 years. She had dementia and at times could be very confused and also very argumentative. There were times that she would test my patience but the staff would be so supportive and give advice on how to cope with this. The home had a very warm, welcoming atmosphere. The staff are kind, friendly, caring and professional in what they do. My mother passed away at Woodville Rest Home peacefully in December and I felt the care she was given was only the best in every way possible. A big thank you to you all and I would recommend Woodville Rest Home to anyone -100%!

My mother had dementia and it took a lot of hard looking to find a care home that she felt at home in. She was welcomed by caring and friendly staff, mum had a nice bright room, plenty of food that was well cooked. She spent 7 very happy years there and was loved by all the staff before passing on. I cannot thank the staff and management enough for looking after mum.

My mother-in-law has been here for a few years now and she is extremely well cared for. She has had some difficult problems but the excellent staff care for her as if she was their own relation. I can't visit as much as I would like but I am confident and secure in the fact that she is well-cared for and happy. I can relax in knowing she is in safe hands. Her dementia can sometimes make her behaviour difficult to deal with but I cannot express how caring, patient and gentle the staff are. They absolutely make the place. It is her home there and the place makes it like a proper home, not a care home. However, they are professional and ensure the dignity of the residents are at the forefront of their care.

My mum was a resident of Woodville for over five years until her death in January 2016. The care staff looked after her very well and I think it was due to the care she received that she lived so long as she did. Even after nearly a year being cared for in bed she did not have a pressure sore. The care staff always went an extra mile to look after her when I visited she was always clean and I felt happy to leave her in their care.

My mother has dementia and so hardly knows where she is. The team appear to be very kind to her and work with her to calm her down and renew calm to her mind. I am sure that the quality of the food they give her renewed strength. Being able to have a few home belongings in the room will make things easier for mother to remember a little of her previous life full of memories.

My mother was a resident at this home for 6 years until her death April 2016. I have nothing but praise and eternal gratitude for the loving care she received until the end. I loved the fact that residents lounge area was fully integrated with the dining kitchen room so there was total integration and contact. The whole time the staff who showed endless kindness, patience and affection and readiness to attend to any upset or problem they witnessed. I will never forget the amazing staff and hope many more residents have the opportunity to be in their care. They will certainly be very lucky.
