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.

“Lovely nursing home, all staff very sweet and caring. The nurses were very attentive and on the ball. Entertainment staff very jolly and always trying to find new things to keep the residents amused.
My mother was admitted from hospital on 'end of life care'. When we viewed the home my family and I found it very calm and quiet and we felt it was a lovely environment to be nursed.”

“Every member of staff at St Michael's has been very caring. They have tended my mother for four months and given her the peace she required before she passed away. They made her last few months very calm. The nurses, Carers, chefs, housekeepers, office and reception staff, and entertainers, (I hope I haven’t missed anyone) all listened to my mum and respected her wishes. Everyone always wanted to say hello to my mum and she always wanted to know how they were. St Michael's is an appropriate saint for all the ‘angels’ who work there. My mum loved to get to the library or garden room where she could sit with my dad. The staff all supported my dad as well during this very stressful time for him. (They have been together for 75 years.). Staff constantly checked that she was OK.

St Michael's is very warm and friendly. The perfect place. Thank you to you all for giving my mum so much.”

“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.”
