St George’s:


St George’s Unit accommodates 51 single bedrooms all with ensuite facilities.  The home is on two levels: the ground floor comprising of 24 bedrooms for general nursing clients and the first floor comprising of 27 bedrooms, The Leven Unit, for clients with Dementia.

Residents are comprehensively assessed prior to admission, thus ensuring health and wellbeing needs can be met within the home.  This is in conjunction with family/significant others as well as the relevant multi-disciplinary agencies. Specialist equipment is provided for those who require it, with all staff trained in its use.

Throughout the home our team of motivated staff are trained to an exceptionally high standard to deliver quality care which is person centred and holistic.  We are committed to providing professional, respectful care in accordance with Organisational and Strategic legislation and policy.  Comfort, dignity and thoughtful consideration for human regard underpins our philosophy for care delivery.  In addition, we are also committed to supporting relatives and significant others, understanding with sensitivity the issues people face when a loved one is admitted to the home.

Supporting this we have excellent training facilities within the Organisation, committed to ensuring quality is taught, delivered and audited on a regular basis.  The training team are all highly qualified to teach staff of all disciplines. Supporting staff to achieve personal goals and qualifications are varied, ranging from QCF Level 2 through to Degree Level.  A clinical team of experts is on hand to offer support, this includes: Qualified Trainers, Clinical Nurse Manager, Health & Safety Manager / Complex Care Manager and a team of Quality Supervisors.  In addition Risedale, in conjunction with the University of Cumbria are training staff in the role of Assistant Practitioners.  Risedale are developing new roles, for example nursing support roles and funding staff to Registered Nurse status with the Open University. All residents have access to a wide range of facilities both internally and externally, some of which include:

In-house Activity Co-ordinators, who arrange in house therapy based activities as well as external trips / meals out etc.  All activities are planned with individuals and, where appropriate, families and significant others.  It is our belief that all staff regardless of disciplines can participate in activities as part of the daily care provision.  Family and friends are welcome to attend social events.  It is a collective responsibility for all staff to see this as integral to their role.


Risedale are following all Government guidance to keep our residents and staff safe, therefore our visiting and social outings will be restricted to ensure safety.
