Overview

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Ashfields Care 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 30 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ashfields Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 21 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.75 for Ashfields Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (274 Excellents x 5) + (68 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 352 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashfields Care Home is based on 21 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 9.2 positive Reviews (46 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 21 Reviews ÷ 9.2 Target Reached = 1

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

9.8 Ashfields Care Home has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.750) from 30 Reviews

Dad was transferred from hospital to Ashfields for palliative care, unfortunately, he was only there a few days before he sadly passed away. He was treated with great dignity and care by a very dedicated team of nursing staff and carers, nothing was too much trouble. Family that visited him were also treated with much compassion and understanding. Ashfields is a very clean and bright place, the individual bedrooms were light and airy.

I have been visiting relatives and friends in this home for over seven years and found everyone and the care very good. So much so that I recommended this place often and I myself feel at home when visiting and would ask to stay here if it becomes necessary.

Josie Greveson, Home Manager at Ashfields Care Home responded to this review on 08 Apr 2018:

Thank you for your review and positive comments.

I have had 3 relatives resident at Ashfields, my Mother and Father-in-law and my Dad. We moved Dad to Ashfields having seen the excellent care for my in-laws. The Nursing and care staff were wonderful and looked after all three with dignity, patience, care and compassion, that I haven’t experienced anywhere else. Nothing was ever too much trouble, even if they were busy. They took the time to get to know each of them personally and always wanted the best for them. The activity coordinators are brilliant, putting so much energy and enthusiasm into creating activities that are relevant, imaginative and appropriate to the Residents. The staff cared for us as relatives too, particularly during their end of life care. It made a difficult time so much easier. The Manager and the office staff are all just as involved with the residents as the carers, which made it feel like you were part of a family. Ashfields is a unique and very special care home which I would highly recommend.

Thank you so much for your fantastic comments it's been an absolute pleasure.

Our father had a fall in another home resulting in him going into hospital with a fracture. He had a number of serious illnesses. We were told dad had limited time left and was told that we needed to find a nursing home. By word of mouth, we were told about Ashfields Care Home. This nursing home took in dad and thank god they did. We did not want him going back to the previous home. From day one this home was warm, friendly and all the staff are warm and friendly. We just wish dad had been there from April 2017. This nursing home should be a flagship to CQC.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review, Jayne. We think we are a special home, but it is always nice to have it confirmed by someone like yourself, then we know we are getting things right for all our lovely residents. Please come and see us anytime.

I cannot praise the staff enough; the care, love and attention they gave my Grandma was so special.
In her final days they helped us so much, emotionally and physically, they couldn’t do enough for us.
I would highly recommend Ashfields to anyone looking to put their loved ones in a trusted place...I cannot thank them enough for their amazing care and warmth.

My mother came to Ashfields Care Home for end of life care. She was treated with dignity, kindness and great care by all the staff, nurses, carers, cleaners and management alike.

The activities were suitable for the residents and many involved visitors which were good fun as the period covered Christmas and New Year.

The short time my dad was there made his last few days while on palliative care very comfortable in lovely surroundings.
Therefore many thanks to the staff who looked after our father.

I would like to thank all staff involved in the care of my mother during her final months of life. I would especially like to thank everyone for the care she received during the last week of life. We were both looked after by all concerned. I was made to feel not just welcome but like family at this very difficult time.

My mum was not just cared for she was cared about and loved by the staff. We could not have received better care anywhere else. From housekeeping staff, kitchen staff, carers, nurses and management, nothing was too much trouble. This really is an incredible home, full of love and care for everyone who needs it.

Mum entered Ashfields Care Home in July 2015 and although she has to be fed and is hoisted out of bed for only one hour per day for dinner, the very professional care staff understand mums needs and keep her comfortable and contented. She qualifies for 24-hour nursing care and the resident nurses are thoroughly professional. In the 2 1/2 years, of residents, virtually bed bound, she has never had a bed sore testimony again to the care administered. There are daily activities and entertainment for those who unlike mum can participate. A tablet electronic flagging system for 24-hour routine care, and new nurse call system, are excellent. You never encounter an unpleasant odour which is testimony to the cleaning staff. The food is excellent, the management and staff are always willing to answer any queries we may have and there are regular resident and relative meetings which are held by the home manager who informs on any developments either presently or due in the future.

Susan Buxton, Training Manager at Ashfields Care Home responded to this review on 28 Nov 2017:

Thank you for your kind words. Your mum will have been with us 11 years in January and she is and always has been a pleasure to care for.

My Dad was cared for at Ashfields in the last 6 months of his life. We were reluctant and fearful of placing him in a care home, but Ashfields surpassed our expectations. This is a clean, well equipped, pleasantly furnished, characterful home, but its main strength is the wonderful staff. They really have hearts of gold, and treated my Dad as an individual, even though over time it became difficult for him to communicate with them. They also took care of my mum, who visited daily, and found it increasingly distressing to witness my father's decline. The activity co-ordinators put on lovely events and work so hard to make it feel like a real community- the elderly residents are kept clean and comfortable and seem at home there. I would not hesitate to recommend Ashfields.

Thank you so much for the fantastic review.

All staff are very friendly and caring. Nothing is too much trouble, they will talk with you when they have time. During the short time I was there, great care was taken of my well-being, all staff were ready to help if asked.

I had great care taken over my meals. I live on my own but have family who help me. If I ever required care, I would try my very best to get into Ashfields Care Home Heanor. I think it is a great place and all the staff are brilliant.

We loved having you!

On arrival with my mother, it seemed that everyone knew her name. Many of the staff knew my name! During what turned out to be mum's final few weeks, all the staff were professional and cared for her well, in a timely manner. Several of the staff were exemplary. My queries were dealt with much more promptly than I expected. I noticed an eye for detail extended throughout the home. Mum was never going to be entirely happy in a care home environment but I don't believe her experience could have been significantly bettered.

We are very grateful to all at Ashfields for caring for our mother during the last 3 years of her life.

The care at Ashfields was loving and warm, with an outstanding level of professional skill, particularly in her final days. I do believe that she could not have had better care. Initially, she was very disappointed to lose her independence and her early months in care were not easy. It is a great tribute to all at Ashfields that she settled in so well to spend her final years in peace and comfort.

Thank you so much for your kind words they mean a lot to all the staff at Ashfields.

My mum was a resident at Ashfields Care Home for the last 7 months of her life. Her care was excellent, always being reviewed and updated to her changing needs. The home uses electronic notes, each member of staff has a hand held device to update as they administer care. This is an amazing tool which can show instantly what the resident has eaten, drank etc. I feel Ashfields Care Home is professional in all aspects of care and management of residents and their families.

Everyone looks after my wife as if it was their own family. They made the room like it was home. They asked every visitor if they would like a drink or anything else. The care was first class and made certain my wife was comfortable and had everything she asked for. The staff did not moan about anything they were asked to do. An excellent nursing home.

Thank you so much for your positive comments it was a pleasure to look after your wife in the last days of her life.

My experience of Ashfields Care Home has been very good and myself and friends together with family members have nothing but praise for the dedicated staff. Ashfields is very welcoming and has a homely atmosphere. The rooms are cleaned are decorated to a high standard. The courtyard gardens and main entrance gardens are maintained at this time of the year are full of colour and have plenty of secluded seating area. Plenty of activities are run throughout the week attended by residents on a voluntary basis.
Ashfields is a little community into which dad settled very well.

The team of carers who look after my wife are excellent - patient and understanding, clearly dedicated to their residents and willing to "go the extra mile" for the residents and families.
Management techniques are modern and made use of digital/computerised systems of recording and back-up. Releasing my wife into care was difficult, but I now accept that I cannot complete with the care and attention she is receiving at Ashfields.

My Father-in-law was bed bound. He could hardly talk due to throat cancer in the 90's, he had a brain tumour which was growing rapidly but inoperable and also prostate cancer. He was checked on every two hours, he was assisted with meals and drinks and he loved coca cola!
The home was a lovely place, they were very welcoming to us, always had a smile, very kind to me, offering drinks and sandwiches. Towards the end of his life, they had someone in the room with him until we got there. He has been in several homes but this was the best by a mile.

Ashfields is excellent. I couldn't find a better place for my wife, The staff look after her very well and they look after me when I visit. I have a cup of tea as soon as I arrive. My wife received high quality care and is very happy. If my wife is having a bad night the carers sit with her and comfort her. When I was ill for 3 months, the home arranged for my wife to ring me on a regular basis.

My mother has received very good care and the staff have been very helpful attentive and welcoming. The only criticisms I would wish to declare is that on one particular Sunday the care home was very understaffed and Ashfields Care Home mother had buzzed several times for toileting. This also happened a couple of times in the week and although my mother should be non weight bearing on her plastered ankle, she made an attempt to go to the toilet herself, unable to wait any longer.

Since mum has moved into Ashfields she has been well taken care of and her health has improved greatly. The staff are excellent and really friendly, they always take time to chat and listen to mum when she is in need of company or help. The meals are good and the residents can go to the dining room or have it served in their rooms if they prefer. The activities co-ordinator is really excellent, and organises plenty of games and activities to stimulate their interest. I would recommend Ashfields to anyone for care for any member of the family.
