From nothing to Three!
Finally St Michael's have the opportunity to have visits from dogs who are part of the group Pets as Therapy.
Over the next week Debbie our Activities Coordinator, will be 'interviewing' a Poodle, a Dachshund and a Labrador!
Thank you to our local volunteers offering their services.
“My mum had been at St Michael's for just over two years. We found the carers/nurses and other staff very kind and helpful throughout her stay. She very sadly recently passed away and everyone was so kind to us which is why we are completing this review to say a "Big thank you" once again to them all. My mum was very much loved and cared for always.”

“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.”

“Our mother was admitted to St Michael's in April 2018 for end of life care. During her stay our mother has received the highest quality care in beautiful surroundings, The decor of the room was of a high standard and also restful. Furniture was constantly being upgraded and all suitable equipment for my mother's support was available.
From the welcome by reception when checking in to signing out in mid-November they remained warm and friendly. Care staff, nursing staff, activity and domestics all gave 100% and made us feel part of their family. Nothing was too much trouble and our mother always looked beautiful, clean and rested when we arrived at any time unannounced.
Sadly our mother passed away in their care but it was only with the love and care given that made it a really special moment. Finally thanks to the management for giving our mother the care and dignity in her final months of life. Bless you all.”
