St John's Care Home

As a family we have always had the full support of the staff and their understanding. When mums behaviour changed Karen was quick to arrange a CPN visit, mums medication was changed and a plan was put into place to stimulate mum as an individual. The home offers a massive amount of support and whenever any concerns or questions are raised, nothing is too much trouble and they treat my mum with dignity and respect.

St John's Care Home

My mother had a bad fall, which was upsetting for us all after a few days in hospital. She was moved to this home, this is the first time for my 92 year old mum. We told her it was a holiday and a rest for her and this is just how it turned out to be. Lovely food, kind and caring staff who have attended to her every need. My mum has been looked after so well that she has recovered enough to go back to her own home this Wednesday. Well done and thank you.

Mum had a bad fall about a year ago when doctors thought she may have to have plastic surgery to an injury to her arm. However due to the excellent care, good food and general attention to mum's well being she recovered surprisingly quickly and even the scarring is barely noticeable without the need for plastic surgery. The fall was unfortunately unpreventable but the quick reaction by staff certainly benefited mum's recovery.

St John's Care Home

I was very upset when the Health Committee sound I was unable to continue looking after my wife, and she needed to be in a care home (She suffers from Dementia). I see now that my worries were unfounded . Eventhough her dementia and general health have deteriorated - now unable to walk and is bedridden - she has received excellent care - and is treated with "loving kindness". Occasionally she is not an ideal patient, but this has made no change in the attitude of the carers. She is "turned" every 2 hours, plus carers coming in with drinks and biscuits etc with of course personal care etc. I cannot speak too highly about the staff - from manager, carers, laundry and cleaners. Thet all show all the love and respect that one would treat one's own family. Visitors are welcomed, and encouraged to take part in all activities. Facilities are excellent - lounge, dining room, and bedrooms "en suite".

My mother has been at St John's for over two years now and she is very happy there, well cared for, well fed and safe. The family feel safe in the knowledge that the staff have my mother's best interests at heart. St John's has an excellent Activities member of staff who goes the extra mile to encourage the residents and bring a lot of fun and laughter into the various exercises and games undertaken. The food is excellent and the staff make sure that everyone eats and drinks well. A hairdresser visits once a week and manages to squeeze everyone in, giving the ladies especially a feeling of well being. If medical care is needed prompt action is taken to provide this. The Care Staff are indeed caring, patient, understanding and mindful of the individual person's needs. Overall, I would strongly recommend St. John's to anyone looking for a residential home.

Description:

I am originally from Cheddar in Somerset. I have been married to my husband Phil for 22 years, who was an engineering officer in the RAF. I have been very fortunate to experience postings to Germany, Holland, Cyprus, and Coningsby. This is how I ended up in Lincolnshire. I was employed as a civil servant for both the Ministry of Defence and HMRC for 25 years. Due to staff cuts in 2014, I decided to take a voluntary exit package. I joined St John's in October 2014 as their administrator. I was able to bring a lot of my transferable skills to the role from the civil service. I have fitted in well with the environment. My 20 years of Samaritan Voluntary has also helped me to fit into the role. I have found the role both challenging and awarding. I enjoy a good working relationship with the Manager Anna, staff and residents. I look forward to my role evolving in the future.
