St Rita's Care Home

I recommended St Ritas unconditionally. My father and I visited, and have used a number of care homes for my mum who has Alzheimer's. We will be forever grateful to have found the wonderful St Ritas. The staff, led by the exemplary, warm and professionalism, are all really engaged and it is obvious that the patients are treated with respect, dignity and real care. It gave us hope that for my mums last few years, she could not be in better hands. Thank you everyone at St Ritas.

St Rita's Care Home

All residents are greeted by name and with a smile by all members of staff. Visitors are greeted cheerfully, again with a smile. The care home is spotlessly clean, light and airy. Minor problems are swiftly and efficiently dealt with. Mealtimes are celebrations and family and friends are warmly welcomed to join in. Each resident receives a homemade birthday cake and birthdays are celebrated and enjoyed by all. Food is presented in an attractive way and there is good variety and choice.

St Rita's Care Home

My dear mother died at St Rita's nursing home in June last year. She had a wonderful four and a half years at the nursing home. The care she received on every level was first class. The staff are all amazing from manager to office administrator to staff nurse to carer to cleaner to chef laundry ladies to maintenance men. Everyone has time to talk to you and you are always made to feel so welcome. Even though my mum died over six months ago, I still return every month to arrange flowers in the dining room and reception areas. It gives me pleasure to go back and see all the familiar faces. I could not recommend highly enough.

St Rita's Care Home

We looked at many care homes before placing our aunt aged 100 in St Ritas. It is by far the best care home in the area. The home is always spotlessly clean no unpleasant smells. Residents are always well dressed, well presented and clean. The care given by the staff to residents is excellent. Some staff go well beyond their call of duty. Kindness and compassion are evident. The food is well presented, nutritious and varied. Management is always willing to take over any concerns regarding health and welfare if and when necessary. Doctor always promptly consulted if residents become unwell and called if necessary.

St Rita's Care Home

My mum moved to St Rita's in May 2014 as she was not coping at home. We visited several homes but St Rita's stood out amongst all the others. The care in the home is exceptional and my mum is brighter and happier than she has been for a long time. Everyone, including cleaning staff and chefs are consistently friendly and helpful. The senior management is compassionate, organised and professional. Activities are varied and tailored to individual residents. I cannot recommend St Rita's enough.

St Rita's Care Home

The staff at St Rita's nursing home for patients with dementia are truly excellent. They always have time to care and speak with residents. Staff excelled themselves right from initial viewing and over the last 2 1/2 years. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending St Rita's for the loving care of the elderly.

St Rita's Care Home

A brilliant home. My mother is happy and well cared for. She is treated with respect and genuine affection by staff. All residents always look well cared for and nicely dressed - no matter how extreme their physical or medical problems. Whenever I visit I feel part of the community. This really is a home and a place where the correct technical care can be given in comfort.

St Rita's Care Home

Mum was at St Rita's for 18 months until she passed away in September this year. She was so well looked after by everyone from the laundry, cleaning and kitchen personnel through carers and activity coordinators to the registered nurses and the manager herself. Each time I visited, Mum was always in a good frame of mind, staff were always attentive to my needs and queries and the whole home had an air of comfortable friendliness. I cannot fault the staff nor the home in any way. Mum, in her own way, had a wonderful, peaceful, time there.

Mum was at St Rita's for 18 months and in that time she was treated wonderfully by everyone and I would visit as many different times and not once was mum in any disarray or distressed. I have nothing but admiration for all their dedicated and caring attitude to all the residents and their families.

St Rita's Care Home

St Rita's care home is such a wonderful place, the kindness and love given to everyone is all that one could ask for a loved one. If only all care homes were of such a high standard we could be a country that was proud of the care given to the elderly and infirm. I cannot thank them enough for all they are doing for my dear dad.

St Rita's Care Home

An outstanding care home. An example of the high standards that can be reached with loving care and professional standards in newly built and properly designed care homes. Everyone with their own room and bathrooms. Food served in an attractive dining room, by qualified chefs, is outstanding. The Augustinian nuns created the standard, having come to St Georges Park in 1870, they continue to monitor the care with a staff which is friendly and loving to their patients. It is a second home to myself.
