Reviews

9.6 St George's Lodge has a Review Score of 9.6 (9.597)

The Review Score of 9.6 (maximum of 10) for St George's Lodge is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 16 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St George's Lodge in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.597 for St George's Lodge is calculated as follows: ( (118 Excellents x 5) + (69 Goods x 4) + (4 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 191 Ratings = 4.597

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for St George's Lodge is based on 10 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 5.2 positive Reviews (26 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 5.2 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Nothing but praise for the care and attention she received. Her room was large and newly refurbished and kept clean. She made quite a few friends at St Georges and was happy here. Food good. She enjoyed the entertainment provided.

From day one St Georges Lodge was like a home to my Dad and his family. We instantly felt at home at St Georges and the staff made us feel all part of the family. For my Fathers 100th Birthday, the home held a lovely party with great food, birthday cake and decorations. My Dad was able to celebrate his birthday with his four best friends at the home and friends and family were all invited. Staff even came in on their day off!

St Georges always went above and beyond their duty's. I am partially disabled and find it hard to get out and about. Staff at the home were always happy to get bits of shopping for my Father and run errands that I couldn't manage to do myself.

Sadly Dad passed away last month but the care he received at end of life was excellent. The home agreed to hold his wake at St Georges so all of his friends could attend. We are very grateful that Dad had such a lovely send off!

When I first walked into St George's Lodge I felt a warm homely feeling. Nan receives loving, caring care, and is treated with dignity. The staff make time to sit and chat (and as nan likes) share a joke or 2.
I am always made to feel welcome and am regularly informed of any concerns etc...
Since nan moved in 3 months ago her health, mentally and physically has improved greatly. It's respected if nan wants her own space at times, however, they are encouraged to keep sociable.
Staff speak to residents to get ideas of what they would like to do, nan really enjoyed the cream tea trip!
Families can visit as often as they want including grandchildren and pet dogs.
Her room is a perfect size, beautifully decorated and always clean. It's arranged how she feels comfortable adding her own personal possessions.
Kitchen staff communicate with residence and work really hard producing delicious home cooked food they enjoy.
St George's Lodge is perfect for a homely and family atmosphere with the reassurance they are in the best caring hands.

Very friendly home, staff are great, residents (some over 100 years old) are very friendly and engaging. This home puts on special events for residents, family and friends, the latest being a jazz event in the garden, which was well supported, with great food and drink and a good band. Pity the rain came down to spoil the party, but that's the way it is during a British summer!

My Mum spent seven happy months at St. George's Lodge. I remember the first day she arrived here from the hospital she was so happy and said "I'm Home!" because that is the way she felt. The staff at St. George's have been wonderful and taken care of her every need. My mother has not always been the most patient of people and could, at times, be quite rude to the staff. She didn't mean to be, it was just the way she was and her age. Everyone here has been most kind and treated her with great respect and dignity. I would sincerely recommend St George's to anyone looking to find a care home of this quality.

We chose St George's Lodge as I used to work there and knew how good it is. Mum has settled well and is getting used to life in a care home. Dad visits twice a week who is also in a wheelchair and the staff are great with him. Would recommend to anyone looking for a friendly care home.

I am very impressed by the staff in St George's Lodge as they are always cheerful, caring and happy to answer any questions. I am made to feel very welcome whenever I visit my mother. One of the most important things for me is the continuity of staff as I know that makes my mother feel more comfortable.

My Father stayed at St Georges Lodge for one month in November 2015 all was excellent so he then became a permanent resident from August 2016.
The staff are first class and nothing is too much trouble I know them all quite well now. The food is excellent and there is always a choice I joined my father for Christmas Day lunch last year which was lovely.
He has a ground floor en-suite room which is well furnished and kept very clean and tidy.
I visit my Father every Sunday afternoon and always enjoy the super homemade cake with a cup of tea.
St George's Care Home is well run and is one of the best in the area.

My dad had been unhappy in a number of other nursing homes costing way more than St George's Lodge.

We moved to St George's on a friend's recommendation.

All the staff and owners are extremely caring and accommodating. The rooms are comfortable and homely and clean

The staff arrange outings and activities for the residents and proactively interact with me to let me know what's going on.

If there is a negative comment I find the plates the food are served on are bizarrely small or bowl like. Which means my dad tends to push the food off the plate or has difficulty cutting stuff. Volume and quality of food are good. But bigger flatter plates would be great.

Having seen several homes now I would have no qualms about recommending this lovely family run nursing home

Emma Wood, Director at St George's Lodge responded to this review on 18 Mar 2017:

Thank you for your kind comments. I'm really pleased you are finding your fathers stay at St Georges caring and accommodating. With regard to your father's dinner plate; we have now offered him a larger plate with all meals. I'm sorry this was a concern, but now we are aware we are happy to change the size of plates used for meal times. I hope your father enjoys the rest of his stay with us. Please don't hesitate to contact us if any other problems arise.

I always find Mum clean, comfortable and well cared for when I visit. The staff are friendly and informative and speedy to contact me with any concerns. There is a calm and happy atmosphere in the home, with regular entertainment and occasional outings.

My mum chose St George's Lodge from a recommendation of a friend. Homely, friendly, efficient, caring, an exceptional care home at a very fair price. The staff are a good team and enjoy their work very much, a family feel to the home.
Mum and myself often said how fortunate we were for mum to be a resident here.

If you are reading this you will already know that all is not well in the care home industry. You would have visited places that you think could not exist in a civilised society. This is the one to regain your faith in care homes. My mum stayed for two years until her dementia got to a stage only a specialist home could cope. People are happy here, food is good – so mum tells me, and the staff are caring and kind. Worthing’s best.

My mother arrived at the home in may for a two week trial and has happily stayed there since. She was made welcome by staff and residents and any requests for particular food or drink were immediately acted on. We have installed a TV and telephone in her room, so she has all the advantages of home, without the worry of cooking and cleaning. The meals are excellent and the staff are very attentive and caring. We have recommended this home to a friend who has also moved in.

My aunt moved into St Georges Lodge about six months ago. A drastic change for anyone to make in their lives, but I can relate that she seems happy with the cleanliness of the home, the staff and they will always try to accommodate any requests in food. I have been made to feel welcome as a visitor and always offered a welcome cup of tea. The staff have always been willing to discuss any queries concerning my aunt.
