It is such a huge relief to know our mum is happy, safe, content and extremely well cared for. The home is always spotless, the gardens beautifully kept, and the staff are warm and welcoming.
“They have been under immense pressure but are always so cheerful. Our family is so grateful for the care Mum gets under such difficult circumstances whilst always adhering strictly to the Covid guidelines to keep our loved ones safe.”
Another commented: “The home is very welcoming, and all the carers go above and beyond the call of duty. Her key worker is very dedicated.”
And one five star review said “It is beautifully designed and looks more like a posh B&B rather than a care home.”
A further reviewer simply said: “We are so pleased that we found St George’s Lodge for our mum. As with all mums, she is the best, and we wanted the best for her; we found that at St George’s.’
