  • 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 4.979 for Ashurst Park Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (46 Excellents x 5) + (1 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 47 Ratings = 4.979

  • 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 4.127 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashurst Park Care 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 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered beds ÷ 5). 4 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target = 0.377

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

Ashurst Place is a community for both residents and relatives in every sense. It provides a "home" from "Home" with the beautifully furnished and tastefully decorated rooms. It provides outstanding care from every member of staff, from the Manager, office, carers, kitchen, chefs, cleaners and gardeners. It provides activities and events every day which are brilliant for the residents, from Remembrance Sunday, Christmas party, Christmas panto and New year fireworks. A huge thank you to all the team at Ashurst Park

My mother has been in Ashurst Park for respite care three times and has been well treated by the helpful and friendly staff. She now is being cared for full time there it was the first place I wanted her to go because I knew she would be safe and I wouldn't worry about her because she likes it so much there.

My mother came to Ashurst Park for two weeks respite care. The place is light and airy with wide corridors of a central hub. The manager and staff could not have been more patient and understanding and did everything in their power to make mum feel welcome and part of the community.

My elderly mother was CHC Fast Tracked to Ashurst Park Care Home just 2 days before Christmas 2016. The staff worked amazingly over the next few days, to help my mother, who has dementia, breast cancer and now a secondary cancer settle as quickly as possible, in what was a very confusing time for her. It was very stressful for the family, but I have nothing but praise for the way all the staff helped. They are so kind and caring, and the home and rooms are beautiful. I finally feel relaxed in the knowledge that hopefully, my mother will live her remaining time in a safe, caring and wonderful place. Thank You Ashurst Park!
