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.

“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.”

“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."”

“Excellent care all around. Nursing care extremely competent. My mother's health and wellbeing had improved after four weeks. Would recommend this care home.”
