Welcome to St George's

A nice intro papragraph written for Rakesh, which highlights the personality of the home. 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. When you come for a visit, I look forward to welcoming to the home

I was apprehensive about coming into a home, but it has done me good. My washing is done, cleaning done. The staff are marvelous, I would not change any of them. They regularly check in on me and offer me food throughout the day and night.

The accommodation is very good. There is plenty of room, and I have my own bathroom and my own dining table. I have my own space, and I can go to the family areas and looking out at the gardens is nice.
