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!!

“I cannot rate this care home any higher than excellent. Both my parents were residents and the care, dignity and personal care was outstanding. As a family we were very pleased we used St Michael's as it was incredibly comforting knowing that we had made the right decision to use St Michael's. The personal touch of the treatment both my parents received was amazing and the way the family was treated was incredible. The staff were outstanding and so thoughtful at all times. I cannot say thank you enough for everything they did. The building was so clean and immaculate, you did not feel you were in a care home, more like a hotel. Thank you again.”

“Dad was very well looked after by all the staff and they were friendly to all dad's visitors. I was impressed by the cleanliness and decor of the home and that there were many attractive and smaller rooms where residents could take visitors. The Garden Room was lovely and dad was able to sit in the garden when the weather permitted. His own room was pleasant too. I thought it was a lovely place for dad to have respite care and he was happy being there. I don't know about the food, dad said he didn't eat much and it was bland.”

“In November 2015 my mother had a serious stroke which left her speechless, immobile and unable to swallow. She spent the next year and half in four different hospitals making a slow recovery. On discharge, she was placed in an interim care home and from there I was extremely fortunate to obtain for her a placement at St Michael's. Since her arrival in July 2017 she has made a quantum improvement both physically and psychologically. Because of the interactive nature of the environment, together with the level of care and respect gladly given by staff, I see she has turned a new chapter in her life which is now more fruitful and engaging. Thank you all for your continued commitment.”
