Time for something new. A 17 year old Classical Pianist, Jake has been playing the piano since he was 4 years old and his programme "From Classical to Christmas" started with Bach, Mozart and Beethoven, to Gveig and Strauss followed by Mancini, then came Elvis, Elton John and Jakes finale ending with his own arrangement of "Santa Claus is coming to Town".
The Chapel was quiet except for Jake's playing as our residents sat spellbound by his music and his talent. The applause after each piece of music was full of appreciation and praise. Jake's performance was Fabulous.
Jake will be returning sometime in the New Year.

“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."”

“My Stepdad was very happy in St Michaels, all the staff are lovely, he was very ill and they made him comfortable, clean and alway they listened to his needs. A lovely care home, I highly recommend it.”

“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.”
