Reviews

6.4 Ashwood House Nursing Home has a Review Score of 6.4 (6.353)

The Review Score of 6.4 (maximum of 10) for Ashwood House Nursing Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.8 out of 5 from 5 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ashwood House Nursing Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 1.6 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 2 years. (A 2 year period has been used as there were no 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 4.783 for Ashwood House Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (47 Excellents x 5) + (13 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 60 Ratings = 4.783

  • 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 1.57 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashwood House Nursing Home is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 24 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3 then divided by 2 = 1.500

    2. Target of 7.2 positive Reviews (36 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 7.2 Target = 0.139 , then divided by 2 = 0.070

  • 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 in Ashwood for over two years. I am extremely happy with the care she is receiving. The staff are fantastic and have great patience with everyone. They always do there best to cheer my Mum up when she is stressed or having a bad day.They are very approachable and know the names of all the residents relations. My father asked if my Mum's room could be freshened up. Two days later the room was painted and new carpet put down.

My mother and father have recently moved into this wonderful facility. It is still early days, but they are settling in well, and I am finding all their needs are being met. Any problems, or queries I have had are answered immediately, and in a friendly manner.

It is hard to find a care home which can suit both my parents needs, but I am really impressed that the staff are doing their best to fulfill them.

I find the decor of the building very pleasing for older people, as when looking around other care homes, I found they lack any personality that older folk would find comforting and warm.

There are regular activities, and residents are very welcome to join in, but not pushed to do so.

Keep up the good work, and hats off to the Manager and Deputy Manager for their hard work making my parents feel welcome, and also myself in visiting.

My aunt has been a resident at this wonderful nursing home for almost 4 years. She is always well looked after by the professional and very friendly staff.

When you enter the home you do get that friendly homely feeling to be honest, which matters greatly I feel. Having had parents in different nursing/care homes, this one is excellent and I would highly recommend.
