  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ashby Lodge Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.7 out of 5 from 4 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 4.583 for Ashby Lodge Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (79 Excellents x 5) + (32 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.583

  • 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 4.659 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashby Lodge Residential Home 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 4.4 positive Reviews (22 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 4.4 Target = 0.909

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

9.2 Ashby Lodge Residential Home has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.242) from 10 Reviews

Dad was a resident for just over 5 years and I believe he enjoyed his time here often commenting on how good he was looked after by the carers. Although dad preferred to remain in his room he liked to have his door open so that he could see and speak to carers passing by. What he did day by day was up to him.
The carers and management always had time to deal with dad in a manner you'd expect and also with family and friends when visiting.
Thank you for looking after dad and making his last years comfortable.

My mother was a resident at Ashby Lodge, Wakefield for 7 years. In all that time I never had cause to complain about the home or the staff. She sadly had a major stroke but lingered, however the last week of her life was spent at "home" where the staff wanted her to be and her care was both loving and infinitely caring.
I can recommend this home unreservedly. We never once regretted choosing this site for my Mums final years.
Thank you to staff and management, may you continue with the good work so very much needed for the elderly.

My mother's needs are met and if there is a problem I ring up and the manager and staff respond quickly. She has a few minor illnesses which have been picked up easily and the GP called. The staff always ring me to inform me of any issues. My mum is happy in Ashby Lodge Residential Home.

My mother cannot walk or talk but the staff seem to know what she wants, she cannot join in with anything, but never gets left out. Her bedroom door is always left open so she can see people passing. The staff always keep her clean and tidy. She has her hair cut every month as I have asked, they do her nails so she doesn't cut herself. They bring her dinners on time even though she cannot and will not go to the dining room. I am very pleased with the way she is treated and if anything happens, day or night, they let me know straight away as I have requested, my brother and all of our family agree.

My father has been in Ashby Lodge for 9 months. Throughout that time the care for his health and wellbeing has been outstanding. The manager and her staff genuinely care about and respect every resident.

My grandma has started to suffer from dementia and was not able to cope living in sheltered accommodation anymore. We managed to secure her a place at the Ashby Lodge. She loves it! whilst she has continued to decline from a dementia aspect. She is really happy, content and safe. She feels as though the carers are family. They are kind, patient and have a wicked sense of humour. We are indebted to them for their support and care.
