About St George's

St George's is surrounded by large, beautiful gardens, giving residents ample opportunity to enjoy some quiet time or to catch up with family and friends. Veggie patches and raised flower beds are tended by residents with a green thumb, adding to the welcoming feeling that makes St George's feel just like home.

Our home has a vibrant and inclusive atmosphere, with a varied social program that focuses on community engagement. Regular music groups and choir practices welcome children from local schools and nurseries, and St George's Men's Den provides an important platform for older men to get together and remain connected.

Dedicated staff know each resident personally, and are on-hand to provide genuine, tailored care around the clock.
