The sun may not have shone but that didn't stop the fun at St Michael's.The party just moved indoors!!
Our Garden Room was decorated with everything British & from the 1940's- Union Jacks, bunting, flags & pictures from the era- pin -ups, Actors, Entertainers, Royalty & advertising photos. Strawberries & Cream and delicious scones were on offer together with Pimm's & cocktails appropriately named 'Vera Lynn' and 'Gracie Fields'.The singing Duo "Hotsy Totsy", in bright 1940's dresses kicked off the Party.
Our residents dressed up in hats, bow-ties and silly glasses, waved their flags and tooted their blowers!!! staff members were appropriately dressed in floral aprons and headscarves, making sure glasses were filled and cream teas served.
The music and singing lead to reminiscing and story telling. The "Hotsy Totsy" girls were very good at keeping to the theme and ensured a good old sing-a-long.
During the afternoon, the sounds of an Ice-cream van could be heard.......Ice-Creams for everyone! A big Thank You to Nick & Sarah for providing over 60 ice-creams from their van.
As the afternoon drew to a close brown paper bags were handed out - Sweet Rations! It was such a fun afternoon, the room filled with music, singing, conversation and laughter.
St Michael's knows how to Party.

“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.”

“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.”

“I am very impressed with the level of care my husband is receiving. He arrived from a previous care home and was rather neglected. He is now being cared for and it is the best it can be. I can now relax and not worry. The staff are friendly and professional.”
