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.

“I couldn't wish for better care. Staff treat my husband as a friend and not just another patient.
Always there for me with support when needed.”

“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 mum went into St Michael's Care for end of life care. The staff and home is just amazing and can't thank them enough for what they did for my mum, nothing was too much trouble. The care my mum received and the support to me was first class at such a painful time.”
