For the last few months we have had jigsaw puzzles dotted around the home. They have been a great conversation piece, especially with families. If you see a puzzle around the home when you visit feel free to stop awhile and place some pieces. Peter loves a puzzle, he has brought many in from home for us and this one was his toughest yet, but after weeks of patience and determination he managed to complete it.

“Mum has been there two years after stroke in 2012. My mother was really active before her stroke. I never wanted to put my mum in a nursing home, but being disabled myself doing all we could as a family at home. First few years caring for her at home we had no option in the end and put her in a nursing home. She needed 24 hr care. Has taken a few changes to find the right one, but we have finally found it. Carers are really good with her and concerns you may have. The manager is really helpful. There are always problems when relatives adapt to living in a nursing home big change for them. Staff and management have done best to make mum feel at home. Problems fixed no problem, they are used to caring for the elderly they now, want works best for the peace of mind of our loved ones, advise, help make decisions. Makes loved one's worries go away.

“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 father-in-law was admitted to St Michael's Care in April 2017. He had very complex and sometimes very difficult needs but our worries soon evaporated with the professionalism and kindness of all the staff. Not only did the staff care for him with respect and dignity they also reassured and involved us with every step of his care and forward planning. I cannot stress enough the kindness and patience shown by the staff. Thank you.”
