The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for Ashley Court Care Home 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 26 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Ashley Court Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 20 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 4.666 for Ashley Court Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (209 Excellents x 5) + (95 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 308 Ratings = 4.666

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. 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.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Ashley Court Care Home is based on 20 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 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 20 Reviews ÷ 12 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 mum was a resident in Ashley Court Care Home for 2 and a half years. The care she received was excellent. The staff were caring, kind, considerate and my mum was treated with dignity at all times. The home is bright and airy. The activity staff were wonderful. I will definitely recommend the home.

My mum is well cared for here. The staff are all friendly, welcoming and informative. My mum has taken a while to settle and caused a few headaches for other residents due to her advanced dementia but on the whole, I think the staff are understanding and accommodating.

A lovely care home, from the word 'go'. My 93-year-old mother was totally at home. She was welcomed and happy by this whole experience. Treated with respect and dignity.
The social respect of the care home is great - fun and easy to get involved in - bringing joy and laughter to my mums day which is lovely. The staff are lovely, friendly and caring - a pleasure in every aspect.

Since day one this care home has been brilliant. Everyone has been kind, helpful and caring; such friendly staff make life a little nicer at this very difficult time. I cannot fault the care my husband has had in any way. Everything seems to be run very efficiently. The food is great, the home is very well maintained, lovely gardens. The entertainment is lovely too. All residents seem to be shown great care and attention. First rate!

I have to give all credit to the staff for helping my husband to settle in so quickly. Their caring attitude, friendly approach and, with a dose of humour, encouraged him to relax into his new situation. They also carry out his daily dialysis and spend time talking to him. I am very grateful to all for making a difficult time so much easier.

My sister has been in Ashley Court for 18 months. She has settled in well, improved in health and is very happy and well cared for. The home is clean and bright and the staff are kind and helpful. When there has been a query, it has been dealt with pleasantly and efficiently. They plan outings and events regularly and have many wonderful activities for the residents. We are very grateful to both caring staff and office staff for all they do to make my sister's day to day life such a happy one.

I am an EPA for one of the residents. He has been in Ashley Court for over three years. In that time, I can see that things have changed for the better and that helps both myself and the resident. I know that he is safe and he is happier knowing that staff interact with him as much as possible.
It is as much of a home, that it can be away from home. Everything as far as I can tell, is geared to the residents and making everyone comfortable.

Mum moved to Ashley Court just over two years ago. All the staff are friendly and welcoming.
Everyone knows Mum by name regardless of where they are based, be it in the kitchen, laundry, housekeeping or the carers/nursing staff on each floor.
It's good to see such a great team all pulling together.

My brother is gravely ill with Pulmonary Fibrosis and after a long stay in hospital has been transferred into Ashley Court. The whole experience from before his move when everything was explained clearly through the move, settling in and the care he is getting now has been excellent. The staff are professional, but more importantly, caring and kind.

In 4 years of care I have nothing but positive things to say. The staff are impressive with attention and care of my mother. The food is excellent with a variety of choice. The home always is clean and smells good. When minor issues have risen, they have been addressed promptly with respect for concern.
As homes go, having investigated prior to having my mother in Ashley Court, I was grateful it was recommended to me.

My mum has been a resident in Ashley Court Care Home for 2 years. I feel the quality of care and management of the home have improved over recent months. The nursing staff have a good understanding of mum's care and support needs and of her likes and dislikes. They follow up concerns we have as a family very quickly. All her care plans and risk assessments are up to date and regularly reviewed.
In the past, we have had concerns about my mum's clothes and belongings not being well looked after/going missing but this is no longer the case. Mum's quality of life would be improved further if staff had a little time to support her to go out in the garden or spend some time in her room. This currently does not happen and adds to the restrictions on her.

There really aren't enough words in the English language to adequately describe the incredible care that my father received here.

The nursing staff are attentive, kind, caring, understanding, considerate and passionate about what they do. They were always gentle, loving and truly wonderful people.

The administrative staff are so, so helpful, so understanding and so kind.

Each and every single one of the care staff treated my father with the dignity, kindness and consideration they would have no-doubt shown their own father.

I really could not have asked for anything else from these wonderful people. You don't often get to witness pure human kindness like this and it's truly transformative to know that it still exists.

My husband suffers from Parkinson's disease and has lived at Ashley Court for two years. the home is a pleasant environment for me to visit him regularly. It is well maintained inside and communal rooms have large windows which create good light and panoramic views of ground and beyond. The staff are friendly and supportive to us as a family, offering flexibility with meals and personal care, which allows us to take him out when health and weather conditions permit. Overall, despite this extremely frustrating illness, Ashley fulfils our needs very well.

My brother is in the home under palliative care. He has a GBM4 aggressive, untreatable brain tumour. The home and its staff have given us the knowledge that our brother is safe and pain-free. 24 hours per day during his final weeks. Although we have been spending many hours every day with our brother (there are only 3 of us siblings) the home care has allowed us to do some normal things like shopping and eating.

Took a little while to settle in but now feel settled in so much and consider it home. If it wasn't for the help from my sister and all the staff at Ashley Court I believe I wouldn't be here now. I have made some goods friends here and I am very content. I have regained my confidence since living here.
