Overview

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Astley Grange is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 9 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Astley Grange in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 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 4.692 for Astley Grange is calculated as follows: ( (77 Excellents x 5) + (28 Goods x 4) + (1 Satisfactorys x 3) + (1 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 107 Ratings = 4.692

  • 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 3.167 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Astley Grange is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 6 positive Reviews (30 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 6 Target = 0.167

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

7.9 Astley Grange has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.859) from 9 Reviews

I found the home to be clean- tidy, the care they gave to my mother was second to none, the staff were excellent everyone of them gave 100% in the way they attended to her, she could not have been in a better place, they should be proud of themselves. They looked after the family also with respect. Mums room was lovely and always clean, the facilities were very good, its a lovely place to spend your twilight days, i can't thank them enough.

Astley Grange scores top marks from myself and my family. My room has settled in very well. She is well looked after and treated with exceptional care and respect. We as a family are very happy in the knowledge that she is cared for and her interests are paramount. This makes a difference to mum and to the family. Thanks Astley Grange where would we be without you.
