The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Avonleigh Gardens is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 11 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Avonleigh Gardens in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 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 4.75 for Avonleigh Gardens is calculated as follows: ( (100 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 132 Ratings = 4.75

  • 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 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 4.847 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Avonleigh Gardens is based on 10 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 11.8 positive Reviews (59 registered beds ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 11.8 Target = 0.847

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

My Mother has been in Avonleigh Gardens for over 4 years and we have always been confident that she is being well looked after and receiving excellent care. The staff are pleasant and the food is first class. Each room has its own bathroom and call system for peace of mind. (My Mother is prone to falling). First class records are kept monitoring the residents care and these are immediately available to look at in each room.
I would recommend Avonleigh to anyone looking for top quality care for their loved ones.

My grandma has been in Avonleigh for over 3 years and the care she receives is excellent. She has severe dementia and can't look after herself, but the staff at Avonleigh give me the confidence to know that all her needs are cared for.

My mum has been in Avonleigh Gardens Care for over three years. I would like to thank the manager and all the staff for my mums care. The food is excellent and the home is welcoming and clean.
The staff are caring and even when my mum was a really high falls risk, the manager was very approachable and took measures to make sure my mum was kept safe. Thank you everyone at Avonleigh.

Mum has settled into Avonleigh Gardens a lot better than we ever thought would be possible. She is 93 years old and has always lived at home and we thought the transition to a care home would be very distressing for both Mum and the family, how wrong we were. The care she receives is excellent. She is always clean and dressed well, as she was at home. Her diet is maintained to a standard she received at home also. Her room is exactly as she would have it at home with pictures of her family all around her. We visit most days and are always greeted with a smile from the carers. All the staff without exception go above and beyond to make sure Mum is looked after and cared for meeting all her daily needs.
I would not hesitate to recommend this care home as in our opinion it is simply the best. From a very grateful family member.

She always looks clean, happy and doesn't smell! She does have her down days (but at nearly 90 who wouldn't) but that's when staff do an amazing job and nothing is too much trouble for any of them all staff are very welcoming, it doesn't matter what time of day you go, you are greeted with smiles. We never wanted to have mum going into a home :( but we feel rest assured that she is in very good hands when we leaver her. Yes I would recommend Avonleigh Gardens to anybody. All the staff are a credit to the home.

I was recommended this home for my Nana by a friend whose relative had been very well cared for at Avonleigh Gardens.
My Nana moved in in January and settled in quickly, this was due to the warmth, compassion, care and patience she was receiving from the staff and how her room was. She was happy she had her own belongings in her room but happy with the layout and the beautiful gardens at the back.
The manager is very approachable and all the staff and management are dedicated and caring.
I have peace of mind knowing my Nana is safe and that she's not alone as there's people to talk to and things to do.
I'm glad we've found a home that meets my Nana's needs and I am extremely grateful for the care she receives, she says she is happy, knowing that makes me feel happy.
The Home is clean, has a good variety of meals, a hair salon, a reflexologist who visits a few times a week, religious services if residents want to attend and activities to do.
It's definitely been a positive experience.

My mother has been in care at Avonleigh Gardens for almost 6 years. And what wonderful care she receives from all the staff members. Mum is now bed bound and I have to say her physical care is administered to the highest standard. She was once discharged from hospital with a pressure sore after a 3 week stay but during the past 18 months of being bed bound she has not had one issue with her skin.

Her emotional well-being is due to the respect, kindness, and dedication shown by all the staff in the home. Nothing is too much trouble.

Obviously we, her family, are forever grateful for the way she is looked after which is an immense relief for us, knowing her health and well-being are dealt with in a professional, kind and caring way.

This is a beautiful & well run care and nursing home. The manager plus all the staff even to maintenance are a credit to the home. Nothing is too much trouble for them and the care respect and dignity they give all the residents is second to none. Plenty of activities if residents want to partake inside and out in the secluded and safe garden or they can just stay in bed if they want!! Meals all freshly made with local produce by the home chefs and excellent quality. All rooms with en suite.

I would have no hesitation to recommend the home to family and friends. In fact a number of the new residence are as a direct recommendation from us as a family. They have a good knowledge and understanding of the residence needs and they are all treated as individuals. The management particularly handle any concerns with so much understanding and a professional manner. The staff are a credit to the home.
