Reviews

9.5 Ashley Park Care Home has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.469)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Ashley Park Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ashley Park Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 17 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 4.469 for Ashley Park Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (122 Excellents x 5) + (67 Goods x 4) + (16 Satisfactorys x 3) + (4 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 209 Ratings = 4.469

  • 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 Ashley Park Care Home is based on 17 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 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 17 Reviews ÷ 6 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.

My mother has been a resident of Ashley Park Care Home for seven and a half years. During that time, she has been consistently well cared for. Her needs are great as she is completely immobile and has no communication skills. The staff have been able to interpret her needs and make sure she is never in pain or ditress.

I am very comfortable. I enjoy my PAT Dog visits with the man and his dog Wanda. I do not partake in many activities but very much enjoy the violin and clarinet concerts and the poetry reading.
Sometimes I have to wait for my night time medication after I have got undressed and changed into my night clothes.
The last time this occurred it was rectified the following evening by an excellent staff member.

I took my husband to Ashley Park Care Home for an initial period of one week's respite care, then continued with a second week and because he settled so easily I decided to place him there permanently at this care home as the atmosphere was/is so easy and welcoming.
The then deputy manager was excellent at helping me to arrange things and I have not had any reason to complain at all. I feel I can relax at home knowing my husband is clean, well fed and cared for.

We attended the 100th Birthday of a relative and all members of our family were strongly impressed by the warmth of the care provided. The staff went to great lengths to make our relative feel special and the quality of the preparation by the events manager, the food by the kitchen staff, the individual attention given by the manager and all his staff was second to none. It is impossible to overstate the sincerity of the care. Genuinely outstanding. The good health and happiness of the residents were a testament to the staff. Well done to all concerned.

My mother requested to return to Ashley Park this month after staying at another home for a period of time to be close to my father. She has spent 6 weeks in respite and had been so well treated and cared for. When circumstances changed and my father had to seek greater care, she immediately requested to return full-time to West Clandon. There can be no greater recommendation than this.

Thank you for your Ashley Park review. We're very appreciative of this feedback and glad to hear that our care has had a strong positive impact on her quality of life.

Every year fees increase well above inflation but without any improvements in standards. Resident now even have to pay for a telephone. Staffing levels are down below what is required and there is yet another new manager. (5th in 8 years).

I believe the very high quality of nursing and care that my mum has received has extended her life beyond what was expected. All the staff are extremely professional and very helpful to us the relatives.
As a family, we could not be happier to know our mum is being looked after in such a caring and safe environment.
A huge thank you to all staff at Ashley Park.

I hope she continues to be happy in her environment during her stay. I will pass on your kind words to the home manager. Thank you again, best wishes, The Bupa Customer Care Team.

My mother suffered a devastating stroke seven years ago and since that time, she has been unable to move or communicate in any way.
She has been cared for with love and respect.
During this time, although unable to move, she has never had a pressure sore and any health issues she has have been treated with immediately.
The staff are friendly and welcoming to visitors and the home always has a warm "family" atmosphere.
My mother's survival is a testimony to the care she receives.

I was a senior SRN and have had a lot of experience in the care of the elderly. I am convinced that my friend has landed in a very caring home for terminal care and has been reasonably happy for the last two years, though is now tired but appreciates all that is done for her.

Having by now been in Ashley Park for six months, my mother is comfortable and relaxed. She frequently comments on the friendliness and kindness of members of staff. She enjoys her meals in the dining room or in her own pleasant ground floor room from which she has a beautiful view of the countryside. She's an active participant in and very much enjoys the program of activities provided in the house (though would enjoy this even more if some activities were scheduled occasionally at weekends). All in all, she has definitely benefited from her first six months at Ashley Park.
