The 1st Westgate Beavers made a welcome first appearance here at St Michael's, they bought along with then gifts & homemade cards and biscuits.
The children started the singing with "The twelve days of Christmas"- with help from the residents and staff of course! They carried on with our favourites such as " Christmas Pudding", "Little Donkey" and finishing with the classic "Away in a Manger", so beautiful and moving when sang by children and reduced many of us to tears.
The children were cheerful and excited about Christmas- tucking into chocolates in the Old Chapel after their performance with noisy  pleasure.
The Scout Master was asked if the 1st Westgate Cubs & Beavers and Scouts could visit more often to chat to our residents, so hopefully this will be the beginning of regular visits in 2018.

“My mum had been at St Michael's for just over two years. We found the carers/nurses and other staff very kind and helpful throughout her stay. She very sadly recently passed away and everyone was so kind to us which is why we are completing this review to say a "Big thank you" once again to them all. My mum was very much loved and cared for always.”

“Mum was living in St Michaels for just short of five years.
During her time there she received a very good standard of care.
The home was cleaned to a high standard.
The staff from top to tail showed respect whilst being cheerful and considerate.
Thank you.
Well done all.”

“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.”
