On Thursday 2nd March we held a coffee morning for our residents to raise awareness and money for Dementia uk, a charity helping those families living with Dementia.
The tea flowed and the cakes disappeared, laughter and conversation could be heard from those gathered around the tables. Once again out came the linen and China, encouraging reminiscing and story telling.
Councillor Roy Nightingale from Westgate-on-sea Town Council came along and chatted to residents about music, holidays and memories.
Welcome to the St Michael's family Roy, we hope you will visit again soon.
“My step mother was admitted to St Michael's after a 10-week spell in the Hospital. She had previously been in a residential home.
We were very anxious as one hears such horror stories about some nursing homes, but our fears were soon put to rest. From the reception staff to the cleaners, carers and nurses they are, without exception, wonderful. Sadly she was very frail when she arrived and was only there for six weeks before she passed away. The care she received for the last part of her life was, without a doubt, the best she could have received anywhere. Our heartfelt thanks to all concerned.”

“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.”

“Excellent care all around. Nursing care extremely competent. My mother's health and wellbeing had improved after four weeks. Would recommend this care home.”
