  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 45 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Avery House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 29 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 4.672 for Avery House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (378 Excellents x 5) + (140 Goods x 4) + (18 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 536 Ratings = 4.672

    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 Avery House Care Home is based on 29 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 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 29 Reviews ÷ 17.2 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.

Avery House has a lovely setting and within a dedicated team of carers plus all of the other roles - managers, administrators, activities people, housekeepers, catering and maintenance staff - whose work is vital to provide a safe, secure and welcoming home for elderly people.

It is a fairly large home which affords a highly-developed organisation but it still has a warm feel to it because the staff are friendly, and as it has four floors, each floor is like a little home in itself. I've always observed that residents are treated with warmth and dignity and I know that my mother is well looked after here.

My wife was a resident of Avery House for five months until January 2017. She has Alzheimers and has difficulty in communicating her needs.
The management and staff managed her difficulties with care and imagination and were always ready to chat and distract her if she was agitated or upset, over and above what was expected.
Any problems were dealt with immediately. There was always a friendly welcome and I felt she was in a safe, secure environment.
She was settled, enjoyed the activities. Unfortunately, her condition deteriorated to a point where she had to leave for a more suitable environment. Many thanks to Avery House.

Mum has been at Avery House Care Home for 5 years and has been happy most of that time. The staff are friendly and helpful and it is nice to know mum is being cared for in a well-run care home. I would recommend Avery House Care Home to others who are looking for care for a loved one in Peterborough. The management and team are always available if any concerns need to be raised and take any action if required in a timely manner. All in all a good home with the good staff.

I have a brain injury. My wife is entitled to have 10 weeks respite per annum. I have been in three care homes and Avery House is by far the best. Activities are treated as a priority rather than an optional extra. On entering the home you can feel the positive welcome. The atmosphere of the home is both positive and caring. This starts at the door and continues throughout the home.
The staff are very good and the management is excellent. There is not a member of the management team I would not have wished to employ.
The present manager is the best manager I have ever come across.

My mother has been a resident on the dementia floors for three years. All the staff from the manager to the carers the cooks to the cleaning staff and activity organisers are professional and most of all caring, kind and always friendly. In the event of any rare problem is remedied straight away. Mum is treated with dignity and understanding regardless of whether she is having a good day or being difficult. I cannot recommend Avery House highly enough and hope that if I need a home in the future years, something similar will be available for me.

Dad came here as a lonely 87 year old who had lost his confidence following a fall. In the time he has been here he has become part of a friendly and supportive community which has helped restore his quality of life, I would not trust his care to just anyone and searched for a while to find the right place for him. Avery House is definitely it and I would recommend it highly.

The standard of care is of the highest standard, from the management, carers, cleaners, kitchen staff etc. The manager is always available to hear your worries and concerns. She has a way or reassuring you.
My husband has been difficult since his admission, but thanks to all the staff, he is now beginning to settle. The carers are very friendly and caring to both the residents and their families. We can visit at any time which is a bonus. I have already recommended to family, and they are now here. Family more than happy.

The care both my mum and mother-in-law receives here is beyond words, the staff treat them both like their own mum's as I would expect. The home is managed very professionally and take great care to make sure all the resident's needs are met and also have time for the families at all times. My mum has settled very well here after trying two other homes who couldn't meet her needs. The care here is so good. I have already put my name down for a room when I am ready, Seriously.

I believe it would be very difficult to find another care home where residents could have better care. Any needs are attended to promptly and staff are cheerful and friendly. Their attitude towards relatives is first class. Any concerns are always discussed and satisfactory outcomes achieved. If my husband was not happy there I would know just by looking at him! The leadership of the management team permits through all departments.

Avery House has restored my faith in residential care. My mother who suffers from Alzheimers was initially admitted for emergency respite care when my father was hospitalised but is now permanent. I have been impressed with the very good care shown as well as the approachability and friendliness of staff who listen and try to accommodate clients' needs. Medical care has been good and appropriate. My father is now also in residential care at Avery House, initially for respite following his hospitalisation, but has now requested to stay and he really likes it there.
It was a welcome surprise to be invited for a care review for both parents to discuss any concerns or issues I might have had. I was also grateful of the offer of an escort for a hospital appointment.
For me the only improvement is that there seems to be a loss of personal clothing through the laundry process.
I have been a carer from afar and wish I could find somewhere equivalent on the South Coast closer to my home.

Overall we are very satisfied with the care home and the care given to my mother since she went into Avery House in September 2014. The staff are kind and courteous, but sometimes there seems to be a shortage of staff. My mother's worst fear was going into a care home, but she has coped remarkably well and that is obviously because of the care she receives.

The staff were very welcoming and kind. They assessed my father quickly and efficiently to get him the aids he needed to help him. The staff listened carefully to him and us to make sure he was happy. The food was excellent and family were invited to join mealtimes. When he went into hospital a member of staff stayed with him until we arrived and the manager and her assistant visited him. They were very caring and he liked them.

Avery House has been a lifesaver for my father and me. Following a stroke, he was withdrawn, not getting out of bed or washing (even with carers) while living in his own home. Once in Avery, he was helped out of bed in the mornings. He is clean and happy. He is well fed and can mix with others though chooses often to eat in his room. He is helped with all daily activities. The staff are very caring and compassionate, despite my father having some inappropriate behaviour. The home is well run. Every one smiles and chats when I visit (daily). My only negative points are it is quite expensive compared to some other homes. But are they as good as Avery?

I am very pleased with the overall care in Avery House. Nice clean environment, a happy place. All staff very kind to residents and families, occasionally they seem understaffed but try hard to care for everyone. They do need more activities as in the last few months I haven't seen or heard as much singing going on and other activities.

My mum has been in Avery House for several years. We are both very happy with the level of care she receives. The staff are very friendly and show interest in mum's wider family. Communication is generally very good. I would certainly recommend Avery House to anyone looking for care for an elderly relative.
