As our residents waited in the Family Room the noise level in the reception area and the Old Chapel rose, as 30 smartly dresses school children arrived all excited, chatting & laughing.
The children giggled and smiled as they took their positions, waving as they were introduced.
Residents, families and staff joined in with Christmas carols and songs, at one stage the children gave out carol books and jingle bells to everyone.
The children sang beautifully, they were so friendly and shook hands with our residents afterwards- our first Christmas event was a happy celebration. We are sure Chartfield School will be visiting us again very soon, as the children themselves have asked to return and spend time with our residents...Chartfield School you are welcome anytime.

“My mother had a short stay at St Michael's but she was looked after and cared for excellently. Mum was very poorly but nothing was too much trouble for the staff at St Michael's. It was a very caring home and kept spotlessly clean. There was plenty going on and the social team didn't leave those out who were unable to leave their rooms even if they went in and had a chat or read a book with them. Receptionist very kind and helpful.”

“Myself and my sister would just like to thank every last person involved with the care of our mother in her last three weeks of her life. From the receptionists, who were particularly helpful to us, to the hairdresser, the laundry staff, kitchen and of course the very long caring nursing staff who went above and beyond in making our Mum's final days bearable for all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

“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.”
