Reviews

7.7 Avonbridge Care Home has a Review Score of 7.7 (7.661)

The Review Score of 7.7 (maximum of 10) for Avonbridge Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 3 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Avonbridge Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.5 out of 5 from 2 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 4.167 for Avonbridge Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (18 Excellents x 5) + (6 Goods x 4) + (12 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 36 Ratings = 4.167

  • 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 3.494 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Avonbridge Care Home is based on 2 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 = 3.25

    2. Target of 8.2 positive Reviews (41 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 2 Reviews ÷ 8.2 Target = 0.244

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

This is a small home not the most luxurious but homely with individual rooms with en-suite facilities, residents are encouraged to have personal items of furniture, pictures, photographs. My wife has been I residence for five years staff are friendly and very caring both qualified and assistants and has very little staff turnover. The home is beside a river and woodland park on the edge of town and has 42 residents. It accommodates an excellent range of conditions from physical to quite severe dementia in a homely setting.

Avon bridge is like a small family home with every residents' personal needs adhered to to the letter.
Staff are dedicated to supplying the highest level of care - communications with the residents being at the forefront, knowing each resident individually between the two units.
Avonbridge is undergoing a major refurbishment and with the arrival of a new manager, is progressing well with new equipment training etc.
If you are looking for a homely environment and caring, dedicated staff, Avonbridge is a wonderful place and I recommend it highly after all care, dignity and compassion rate very high in the ongoing life of my mother.

Have found on occasion that something requested by myself relating to my mother has not been addressed and have to bring it to their attention again at some later date. Overall staff are very good. Some communal areas I feel could do with freshening up e.g. paintwork and blinds sometimes look in disarray which gives a bad impression when driving into the grounds of the home!!
