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 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.”

“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.”

“We have always been happy with the care that my brother has received at St Michaels. The staff from management down to nurses, carers, and domestic staff all take an interest in the well-being of my brother. He always seems content, warm and comfortable. He also enjoys the food at St Michaels. We hear so many horror stories these days about badly run care home that we often reflect how lucky my brother is to be at St Michaels.”
