Overview

The Review Score of 9.7 (maximum of 10) for St George's Residential Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 18 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for St George's Residential Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 14 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • 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 4.676 for St George's Residential Home is calculated as follows: ( (152 Excellents x 5) + (48 Goods x 4) + (10 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 210 Ratings = 4.676

  • 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 Residential Home is based on 14 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 7.6 positive Reviews (38 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 7.6 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.

9.7 St George's Residential Home has a Review Score of 9.7 (9.676) from 18 Reviews

St George's was recommended to us and my Aunt viewed herself before committing to a stay. She thought it was a very friendly place she could settle into. The staff are great with her and she gets out and about quite a bit with the different activities they have going on. She is well cared for and I would have no hesitation in recommending the home to others.

St George's Residential Home is very good. The staff are all professional, kind and caring and friendly. The home is always clean and the food smells lovely when I was sitting with my mam. My mam's room is so clean and tidy and she is well looked after by all the staff.

I would recommend this home to any families who are needing respite or full-time care for a member of their family.

The care home is excellent. My wife has been residing at St George's for around 2 years and have had no problem. My wife is cared for excellently. I also enjoy having meals with my wife and the staff are always welcoming.

My mother was sent to St George's seven years ago on palliative care. She was nursed back to health by the excellent nursing staff and carers. Unfortunately when she recovered she had dementia. Seven years: she was looked after and she was very happy and safe. I cannot speak any higher of the care she received.

As a family carer and great-nephew to the resident, I am pleased to be given this opportunity to commend this care home (St George's) on being a fantastic option for those who need it. The most important factor that contributes to its greatness is the the staff here. They are so friendly and kind with everybody and makes any visitors feel most welcome. There is a sense of belonging and love here and everyone seems to fit in here. The staff's level of care is absolutely first class at St George's.

My husband has been cared for and supported at St. George's for several months. Initially for respite care. He is now a permanent resident. The transition from respite to full time was carried out in a caring and kindly manner. His room was beautifully presented. It is clean, bright, well furnished and maintained daily to a very high standard. All staff, admin and carers are kind, courteous and highly professional in their approach. I have no hesitation recommending St. George's. They focus 100% on resident's needs.

As soon as you walk into the home you feel at home. All the staff are down to earth and so nice, they make you feel relaxed and you know our loved one is in safe hands.
Our mam is so happy and relaxed and it is a great weight off our minds knowing she is being well looked after and treated as a human being.
I would have no hesitation in recommending this home.

I have nothing but good to say about the staff and the home. The only thing I can complain about is the amount of things that go missing. My husband came to the home in May 2015 and has lost one good watch and three hearing aids and three pairs of glasses.
The only thing I have noticed there isn't any one to one with the elderly.

Caring, friendly staff. Prompt to ring the doctor when Mum isn't well and generally good at informing me. Too much turnover at management level, but Wellburn Care Homes are good at covering the gaps.
Sometimes gaps in internal communication between different staff in the home eg. when we tried to sort out new clothing for Mum.

Hi, Jim many thanks for your review. We appreciate all feedback. We understand that there has been a high turnover with management, however, we now have a manager in place that we are expecting to be with us long term. We will discuss the internal communication issues with the manager and hopefully be able to improve this. We wish you a very Merry Christmas. Wellburn Head Office
