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 was admitted for respite care and stayed for another six weeks. The staff quickly got to know her likes and dislikes and managed her path to good health with humour and great patience. Mum was encouraged to participate in the many activities, which meant that for the first time in many years she was socialising. Her medical treatment was properly maintained and whenever I visited her she was clean and well groomed. St Michael's care does exactly that, care! Thank you.”

“These are quotes from a letter I sent to St Michael's Care last week after my mother aged 103 died after having spent 6 years in the home.
"You have allowed and enjoyed mum expressing her personality, she has felt totally at home, she felt at ease with whoever was with her she has been able to express her thoughts and views as you made her feel "at home" with all of you."
"Thank you for enjoying her, encouraging her to do her washing, enjoying her moans and laughing and joking with her. You helped all of us understand the needs of the elderly."
"She constantly said how happy she was with all of you. We could go on and on and that is your strength. We will miss her, you will miss her but her memory is there for all of us."”

“The end of life care my mother received was excellent, the staff are caring and treated the whole family with dignity during the last weeks of my mother's life. I would highly recommend this amazing nursing home and cannot say anything else but "thank you" for everything.”
