Jo and Flora the Dachshund are regular visitors now and their visits are enjoyed by the staff and residents.
Jo is friendly, chatty and hearing Flora is delightful  and brings such joy to our residents, she is always ready for a cuddle and a pat.
P.A.T. dogs bring comfort, stress relief, pleasure and stimulation, each dog undergoes tests to check their temperament, suitability, stability and health. The Charity was established in 1983 and their primary aim is to bring temporary but regular animal companionship and comfort. Judging by our residents reactions to Flora she is certainly doing a great job....THANK YOU FLORA!!

“These are quotes from a letter I sent to St Michael's Care last week after my mother aged 103 died after having spent 6 years in the home.
"You have allowed and enjoyed mum expressing her personality, she has felt totally at home, she felt at ease with whoever was with her she has been able to express her thoughts and views as you made her feel "at home" with all of you."
"Thank you for enjoying her, encouraging her to do her washing, enjoying her moans and laughing and joking with her. You helped all of us understand the needs of the elderly."
"She constantly said how happy she was with all of you. We could go on and on and that is your strength. We will miss her, you will miss her but her memory is there for all of us."”

“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. Daily cleaning happy in their environment my mother is happy there & calls it home dining room, tv lounge garden party's entertainment. Good food living room seafront is so close. beach cafe ice cream, pub high street”
