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 is a beautifully situated care home in a tranquil setting. The atmosphere is calm and peaceful.
The care my mother received in the last months of her life was kind, caring and professional. It is a difficult job and the staff here do it wonderfully well.
We were indeed lucky, as a family, to have my mother so well cared for and we can't thank the staff enough for giving us peace of mind.”

“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.”

“I am very impressed with the level of care my husband is receiving. He arrived from a previous care home and was rather neglected. He is now being cared for and it is the best it can be. I can now relax and not worry. The staff are friendly and professional.”
