Reviews

9.6 Ambleside Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.589)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for Ambleside Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 21 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ambleside Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 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 4.589 for Ambleside Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (168 Excellents x 5) + (56 Goods x 4) + (21 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 246 Ratings = 4.589

  • 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 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ambleside Nursing Home is based on 14 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 4 positive Reviews (20 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 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.

My mother has recently taken up residence here and we would like to say how very pleased we are with the care being given to her by the wonderful staff at the home. Mum has Altziemer's and Dementia and has settled in very well and is now eating better than when in her own home. Many thanks for the excellent care and kindness being given to her.

My mother has been in Ambleside for more than 5 years.
The care she receives is second to none.
She is now bedridden but is treated with affection and respect.
The staff are all polite and happy and this reflects in the service that they provide.
I often pop in at different times and never once have I felt like I was a nuisance.
I am always kept up to date with her moods and medical condition.
I feel so lucky to have found a home like Ambleside and would highly recommend it to anyone.

My father has recently been having a few problems and is feeling quite unsettled due to a lot of staff changes. However, all the staff have continued to provide support as always. The staff will always contact me if they have any concerns, which I truly appreciate.
My father seems to be more settled and a lot happier.

Mum has spent time at Ambleside on two occasions. The first was for 12 days following a fall in September 2015 and the second time was at her request for care and respite in November/December 2015, whilst my wife and I were on holiday for three weeks.
The care she received on both occasions was second to none and she most certainly felt like one of the Ambleside family. The food care and staff were all excellent. When we visited we always were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.

My mother has lived at Ambleside Nursing Home for 8 1/2 years after having a major stroke in Yorkshire where she lived. We moved her here to be near me and my family as we were told she needed 24 hour nursing care. I have always been pleased and confident with the care she receives in a homely environment. Over the years I have recommended Ambleside several times to others.

This nursing home is quite exceptional in the care and attention given to residents. The staff are not only highly experienced and qualified but caring and compassionate. It is a hard decision to put your loved one into a home but I can honestly say that this was the best decision we could have made. My mother has been treated with such respect and compassion and I would absolutely without reservation recommend Ambleside Nursing Home as a first choice.

They seemed to help my dad get back on his feet after a very bad UTI. Even though he pressed the a LOT they still came. Food - I felt he had chips quite often? but he did enjoy the food. One sister fought hard with the GP to change his antibiotics. Which was brilliant as they really helped. Furniture in room very dated but rest very clean.
