Overview

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.9 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ashfield Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 8 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 4.925 for Ashfield Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (99 Excellents x 5) + (8 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.925

  • 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 Ashfield Nursing Home is based on 8 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 8 positive Reviews (40 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 8 Reviews ÷ 8 Target = 1.000

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

9.9 Ashfield Nursing Home has a Review Score of 9.9 (9.925) from 9 Reviews

Always seems to be plenty of staff who are caring and helpful and I am always made welcome when visiting my mum. Rooms are nice as is the lounge, dining room, the conservatory needs new blinds! The garden was spruced up last year and now a pleasant area for resident and visitors. The activity coordinator is really good. Food is fantastic! all homemade and good choices. Had a few niggles but to be expected but always sorted quickly by staff or the manager.

My family member has been in the home for many years and can be difficult at times but the staff are excellent with her and give her everything she needs. Couldn't wish for a better place.

All staff I came into contact were extremely courteous and made my wife and I feel very welcome while we were there. As it was our first visit, I requested a quick talk with the nurse. I was greeted by both the nurse and the manager of the home. Both knew my aunty very well and I could tell she was in good hands. Have visited a few palliative care homes in the past and I must say I could not recommend Ashfield highly enough. Great job staff and thank you.

I am very pleased with the way my husband is looked after. He gets very agitated and noisy but the carers are very patient and caring. I have never seen him neglected or ignored.

When he was first admitted, they went out of their way to help him when he was extremely unsettled, especially at night time. He does not get involved in activities but is encouraged to try.

My mother has been in Ashfield Nursing Home since 13th October 2016. We have seen a marked improvement in her health and she has gained weight. Also, she looks clean and well cared for. The staff are always very welcoming and are extremely efficient. They listen to our concerns and are available to offer advice along with a cup of tea when needed. The surroundings are very clean and also pleasant. The food is varied and nicely prepared with lots of home-made biscuits, cake, and fresh fruit daily. There is a dedicated activities coordinator who teaches art and crafts to keep the service users occupied which we think is an important day to day requirement. We are happy that we chose Ashfield Nursing Home.
