Reviews

9.8 Afton Lodge has a Review Score of 9.8 (9.812)

The Review Score of 9.8 (maximum of 10) for Afton Lodge 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 13 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Afton Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 9 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 4.812 for Afton Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (129 Excellents x 5) + (21 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 154 Ratings = 4.812

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Afton Lodge is based on 9 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 5.4 positive Reviews (27 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 5.4 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.

Since my mother's admission to Afton Lodge in early 2017, I would state that I have been impressed by the service offered by the home. Having visited every week the welcome by management and staff and the care afforded to my mother and all other residents is a great relief and comfort to know that she is in a secure and caring environment.

My sister in law was warmly welcomed at Afton Lodge and almost immediately seemed contented to be there. She had lived most of her life in the Bootle area, but latterly in Hightown, so the very caring staff were people with whom she was comfortable. The bond between the staff and my sister in law quickly grew to a stage now that seems to be strong and enduring. She is very happy and has great trust in the directing staff in particular.

I would particularly like to commend that directing staff who have arranged for my sister in law to see and talk to my wife, her older sister, and I in Australia via Skype.

Finally, as an Australian who lived in the UK for 21 years, I cannot give too much praise for the institution that is Afton Lodge. It may look a little run down but the spirit of the place and the attitude of loving care is extraordinary. I cannot envisage a more satisfactory home for my sister and law at this time in her life.

My mother has been a resident at Afton Lodge Care Home for two years now and I can say that I've never seen her looking so happy for a long time. She is being very well looked after and that's all that matters to me and my family. Not only do the staff look after Mum, but I get a lot of support off them too.

My mum has been in this home a few years now and I am very happy for her to be there.
The management and staff know her very well and have always kept a good eye on her.
My mum's health goes up and down but the staff keep me well informed of her well-being, as the care goes I would recommend this home to other people as the one to one is second to none.

My father passed away 20/12/16. If I had not had the utmost privilege of having my father reside very happy and content and cared for at Afton, I would have been very disappointed, because the manager and amazing angels staff that work there made it possible, that in his late stage of life and illnesses, he was cared for so greatly they have my respect. Thankyou Afton Lodge

I have been a resident at Alton Lodge for 2 and a half years. I have always had good care and respect from the manager and staff. I suffered during a serious brain injury about 3 years ago and I consider the care and support I have received at Afton Lodge to have enabled me to progress to the better health which I have now. I could not have made this progress without the excellent care and support I have had from all at Afton Lodge.

I stayed at Afton Lodge for several months after losing a leg; I found there to be a great family atmosphere with committed and hardworking staff. The rooms are very good, and there is a beautiful garden/allotment. I was very well supported by all the staff during my time there, and would strongly recommend it.

My 95 year old mother became unable to cope at home and I arranged her future care in Afton Lodge. My mother went into the home directly from hospital. She was very happy there from the first day as all the staff were so kind and supportive. Whenever I visited a member of staff even, very kindly, made me a hot drink.
My mother has now died but I feel relief that her last few months were happy.
