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.

“Mother has had dementia for over 10 years and came to St Michael's as a bedbound resident. The attention to her was top notch. All the family were very happy that we were able to get a place here for her. I know this is a business but all the staff were more like family - we shared laughter and tears with them.”

“My Stepdad was very happy in St Michaels, all the staff are lovely, he was very ill and they made him comfortable, clean and alway they listened to his needs. A lovely care home, I highly recommend it.”

“I cannot rate this care home any higher than excellent. Both my parents were residents and the care, dignity and personal care was outstanding. As a family we were very pleased we used St Michael's as it was incredibly comforting knowing that we had made the right decision to use St Michael's. The personal touch of the treatment both my parents received was amazing and the way the family was treated was incredible. The staff were outstanding and so thoughtful at all times. I cannot say thank you enough for everything they did. The building was so clean and immaculate, you did not feel you were in a care home, more like a hotel. Thank you again.”
