Award winning Care Home - Best in Wellbeing


Our St Georges Nursing Home in Somerset has been awarded with the ‘Best for Wellbeing’ award at the Care Home Awards 2024. This respected accolade was presented at a glittering ceremony in London, recognising excellence and innovation in care home management, operations, and delivery across the UK.

The Care Home Awards are an annual benchmark of excellence, celebrating the achievements of residential care and nursing homes. This year’s awards were particularly notable, with an influx of outstanding new entrants from the care home sector, resulting in record-breaking entries and a larger panel of judges.

"This year’s awards were enhanced by the addition of some outstanding names in the care home sector as first-time entrants. Entries reached record numbers, calling for a slightly larger group of judges for 2024," said Helen Warrilow, Commercial Director of the Care Home Awards. 

St Georges Nursing Home, part of the Allegra Care family was recognised for its unique, personable approach to resident wellbeing. Dismayed by the prevalence of inefficient and insensitive practices in the care industry, Allegra Care's CEO Helen Jones has made it her mission to transform the face of social care. Her vision took root at St Georges, which has fully embraced Allegra Care’s service philosophy through the Household Model of care.

This innovative approach prioritises the comfort and autonomy of residents, offering them the personal choices and flexibility that foster a true sense of community. The result is a homelike atmosphere where genuine, personalised care is the standard, guided by a set of core principles and behaviours.

News of the award brought jubilation to the St Georges team. "We are over the moon and incredibly proud that St Georges has taken top honours in this category," said Helen Jones, CEO of Allegra Care. "This recognition shines a light on the tireless dedication and genuine warmth of our amazing colleagues. At Allegra Care, we are committed to bringing nurturing, homelike care to all our local communities. This award reinforces that we are on the right path to making that vision a reality."

The Care Home Awards 2024 reward organisations that have implemented practical strategies that measurably enhance the wellbeing of residents, relatives, and staff. St Georges' win is a resounding endorsement of Allegra Care's unwavering commitment to raising the bar in social care.
