The Sun shone brightly and the garden looked inviting for our Easter Party.
The Easter bunny had left paw prints from the front door through to The Garden Room so the children & adults knew that the Easter eggs had been delivered, and no matter how well the eggs had been hidden, those children could sniff that chocolate out! The children's laughter filled the air as did the noise of our visiting farmyard. True to their word, the mobile Farm Experience arrived with two calves, two Pigs, two Lambs and a goat along with Chickens & Chicks.
As Darren sang his Rock 'N' Roll songs our residents enjoyed the music & the sunshine outside in the garden and patio, drinking and eating, many were wearing their Easter bonnets.
Children & residents held the chicks and petted the animals, the experience bringing back memories and stories of childhood.
The whole afternoon was bright and cheerful and once a gin our residents had a very social time.
£77 was raised through our raffle, so Thank You very much to those who bought tickets and donated prizes. The money raised will go towards the residents fund and Debbie has already got her eye on some sound and scent sensory activity sets from Active Minds, a company who design, test and sell products specifically for the needs of the older generation.

“I would like to comment on this wonderful home on behalf of my family.
My dear brother was admitted to the home in May suffering with terminal cancer. Obviously a very sad, difficult time for everyone but from the day he arrived he settled in and relaxed. He was treated with kindness and understanding and all the staff, nursing and care assistants were wonderful.
My brother had severe learning disabilities and so wasn't able to communicate fully with the staff but they went out of their way to get to know him and to understand his needs. They respected his dignity and privacy at all times and made sure he was comfortable and cared for.
As the family, we were always made so very welcome, anytime day or night.
The home itself is a beautiful building which has been well looked after and is clean and welcoming. The rooms are lovely, with character and very good facilities.
The gardens are beautiful.
Thank you to everyone who helped and cared for my dear brother so well.”

“My mother was under your care between Dec 2018 - March 2019.
The staff were on the whole very good and treated my mother with dignity and kindness. Unfortunately, the staff did not know my real mother's personality because it was affected by a terrible brain tumour. Thank you to everyone that cared for my mum and now she is at peace away from all her suffering.”

“Mother has had dementia for over 10 years and came to St Michael's as a bedbound resident. The attention to her was top notch. All the family were very happy that we were able to get a place here for her. I know this is a business but all the staff were more like family - we shared laughter and tears with them.”
