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.

“I couldn't wish for better care. Staff treat my husband as a friend and not just another patient.
Always there for me with support when needed.”

“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.”

“I have told the manager and staff how very content and comfortable my brother was at St Michael's. In fact, I tell everyone I speak to!
With multiple health problems, he died peacefully in hospital on 22 February 2018. I cannot put into words how grateful I am that his last few months in the wonderful care of St Michael’s were as good as they possibly could be. All the staff I met at St Michael’s were very friendly and professional. They did everything to make my brother feel at home and one of the ‘family.’
As his only relative, living abroad and visiting just every few weeks, they maintained good communication and even managed to make me feel part of the ‘family’ too.
By expertly managing his health care, they took away my brother’s anxiety in relation to this. His trust in them, definitely went a long way to relieving the stress of his condition.

I feel so lucky to have found St Michael’s for my brother. He was a lovely chap and deserved the best. Thank you so much.”
