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.”

“Every member of staff at St Michael's has been very caring. They have tended my mother for four months and given her the peace she required before she passed away. They made her last few months very calm. The nurses, Carers, chefs, housekeepers, office and reception staff, and entertainers, (I hope I haven’t missed anyone) all listened to my mum and respected her wishes. Everyone always wanted to say hello to my mum and she always wanted to know how they were. St Michael's is an appropriate saint for all the ‘angels’ who work there. My mum loved to get to the library or garden room where she could sit with my dad. The staff all supported my dad as well during this very stressful time for him. (They have been together for 75 years.). Staff constantly checked that she was OK.
St Michael's is very warm and friendly. The perfect place. Thank you to you all for giving my mum so much.”

“Myself and my sister would just like to thank every last person involved with the care of our mother in her last three weeks of her life. From the receptionists, who were particularly helpful to us, to the hairdresser, the laundry staff, kitchen and of course the very long caring nursing staff who went above and beyond in making our Mum's final days bearable for all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”
