Everyone was sat waiting in the Garden Room amongst the Christmas decorations as Jo Jo's Dance school lined up, fro 3- 17 years old! They were all in uniform and looked very professional, and our residents loved them! many joined in with the Carols, others watched the little ones at the front. There were some solo's, which were thoroughly enjoyed and there was not a dry eye in the house after a wonderful rendition of "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas", from one of the lead members of the troop. Such a lovely afternoon.
Jo Jo's have said they will be back in the Spring with another show- more singing & dance routines.....Please!!

“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.”

“My step mother was admitted to St Michael's after a 10-week spell in the Hospital. She had previously been in a residential home.
We were very anxious as one hears such horror stories about some nursing homes, but our fears were soon put to rest. From the reception staff to the cleaners, carers and nurses they are, without exception, wonderful. Sadly she was very frail when she arrived and was only there for six weeks before she passed away. The care she received for the last part of her life was, without a doubt, the best she could have received anywhere. Our heartfelt thanks to all concerned.”

“Dad was very well looked after by all the staff and they were friendly to all dad's visitors. I was impressed by the cleanliness and decor of the home and that there were many attractive and smaller rooms where residents could take visitors. The Garden Room was lovely and dad was able to sit in the garden when the weather permitted. His own room was pleasant too. I thought it was a lovely place for dad to have respite care and he was happy being there. I don't know about the food, dad said he didn't eat much and it was bland.”
