On Saturday 8th June, the Granddaughter of one of our residents got married in a lovely church In Ireland.
Winnie and three of her family members joined in the wedding ceremony by via webcam!,Winnie & her guests wore their finest hats to join in on the occasion, following the order of service and joining in with the congregation. There was small talk about the Bride's dress, the bridesmaids, the reading and the church itself.
Winnie watched the screen closely and when the congregation turned and waved to her she waved back!! What a fantastic way to share a very special day.
At St Michaels we continually strife to keep families united and involved on special occasions and thanks to a small Irish church having a little bit of technology Winnie was able to be part of her Granddaughter's Wedding Day.
Congratulations to Jessica & Danny the Happy Couple.
“St Michael's Care gave the very best care to my friend. The home is so clean and has caring staff, cannot praise the home enough.”

“In November 2015 my mother had a serious stroke which left her speechless, immobile and unable to swallow. She spent the next year and half in four different hospitals making a slow recovery. On discharge, she was placed in an interim care home and from there I was extremely fortunate to obtain for her a placement at St Michael's. Since her arrival in July 2017 she has made a quantum improvement both physically and psychologically. Because of the interactive nature of the environment, together with the level of care and respect gladly given by staff, I see she has turned a new chapter in her life which is now more fruitful and engaging. Thank you all for your continued commitment.”

“My mum went into St Michael's Care for end of life care. The staff and home is just amazing and can't thank them enough for what they did for my mum, nothing was too much trouble. The care my mum received and the support to me was first class at such a painful time.”
