Brief Description
As described by our CSCI Inspector:
St James Lodge is a Care Home with Nursing that is registered to accommodate a maximum of 38 Service Users above the age of 65 of either gender. This age limit lowers to 40 for Service Users who require Nursing or Terminal Care. The Home is one of two homes owned by Mr Sutherland in the Plymouth area. It is situated in the Stoke area of Plymouth and is close to local amenities. It is also on a bus route that goes direct into Plymouth City Centre.

St James Lodge is a large Georgian property that has access from the main road and offers limited parking space within the front entrance. The property has been extended several years ago to provide further bedrooms on the ground floor. The home is arranged over two floors, the first floor being accessed by stairs or a five person passenger lift. There are several separate communal areas on the ground floor and a well maintained garden and patio area to the rear and side of the property.

Care is provided by a team of Registered Nurses supported by trained care staff and a variety of ancillary workers.


St. James's has 35 beds including some double rooms for couples or friends. All meet current regulations in all respects including sizes and facilities. Lockable storage is available in all rooms, and door locks & keys available on request.

There are two large lounges, two smaller lounges, and a large dining room. The ground floor shower room and bathroom have been completely refurbished, complete with a new £10,000 height adjustable bath, making bathing safer for clients and staff.
