We hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the Scarecrow Trail around Westgate, did you see Henry?

“Every member of staff at St Michael's has been very caring. They have tended my mother for four months and given her the peace she required before she passed away. They made her last few months very calm. The nurses, Carers, chefs, housekeepers, office and reception staff, and entertainers, (I hope I haven’t missed anyone) all listened to my mum and respected her wishes. Everyone always wanted to say hello to my mum and she always wanted to know how they were. St Michael's is an appropriate saint for all the ‘angels’ who work there. My mum loved to get to the library or garden room where she could sit with my dad. The staff all supported my dad as well during this very stressful time for him. (They have been together for 75 years.). Staff constantly checked that she was OK.
St Michael's is very warm and friendly. The perfect place. Thank you to you all for giving my mum so much.”

“During the two years I have been visiting I have found most of the staff including the nurses to be friendly and helpful. I have noticed on numerous occasions how short staffed the home can be. In spite of that, the staff tend to work it out amongst themselves. There is rarely tension between them. Everybody is well cared for and treated with immense dignity. Only on very few occasions have I heard the staff short tempered. I find that very impressive. Cleanliness is good. The rooms are shabby, the carpets equally so. The bedding is dreadful, old, discoloured, mismatched and ill-fitting. The food is exceptionally good. It is always served hot and well presented. Compliments to the chef. My friend's clothes are always clean but she sometimes smells of urine. Short staffed, I would blame for that. I must add that the positive comments far outweigh the negative ones. I am very happy with the love and care my friend receives. It pleases me that she is very fond of the staff.”

“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.”
