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.

“St Michael's is a beautifully situated care home in a tranquil setting. The atmosphere is calm and peaceful.
The care my mother received in the last months of her life was kind, caring and professional. It is a difficult job and the staff here do it wonderfully well.
We were indeed lucky, as a family, to have my mother so well cared for and we can't thank the staff enough for giving us peace of mind.”

“My mother was admitted for respite care and stayed for another six weeks. The staff quickly got to know her likes and dislikes and managed her path to good health with humour and great patience. Mum was encouraged to participate in the many activities, which meant that for the first time in many years she was socialising. Her medical treatment was properly maintained and whenever I visited her she was clean and well groomed. St Michael's care does exactly that, care! Thank you.”

“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.”
