Shimmer curtains hung at the windows, vintage handbags swung from the lights, 1920's pictures lined the shelves. The cocktails were ready, the umbrellas and slices of fruit in the glasses, the shots on the tray, the canapes on the table, the band began to play and the party began.
Residents wore head dresses, beads and Al Capone hats as they settled into Mike's Speakeasy. Our Executive Chef Simon had chosen delicious, tempting canapes, Debbie and the staff on duty worked hard keeping glasses full of the popular cocktails plus the shot glasses of course.
Residents joined in with Adrian and his Jazzmen, singing along to well known numbers. The band were fun, entertaining and talented and will hopefully be returning again.
An afternoon of laughter, conversation and enjoyment passed too quickly with friendships being made and strengthened. What a fabulous way to spend a February afternoon.
“My mother was under your care between Dec 2018 - March 2019.
The staff were on the whole very good and treated my mother with dignity and kindness. Unfortunately, the staff did not know my real mother's personality because it was affected by a terrible brain tumour. Thank you to everyone that cared for my mum and now she is at peace away from all her suffering.”

“From the day I viewed St Michael's I was taken by the warm reception of the staff I met. I expressed the excellent feeling I had about the home to my sister who became a patient. She loved her stay there and still did til the night she died there. I have nothing but praise for all their caregiving. The staff, from cleaners to experienced nurses was absolutely wonderful.”

“My husband had been at St Michael's Care, nursing home for six months. In all the months he was there, I found the nurses and carers very kind, caring and professional.
I was thoroughly impressed with the standard of care provided by everyone.
Towards the end of my husband's life, not only were they looking after my husband with dignity and kindness but they were supporting me as well.
My big thank you to everyone a St Michael's care.”
