On Wednesday 21st December Viking Bay became standing room only for our Christmas Party.
The Garden Room Winter Wonderland, was filled with Residents, Family, Friends and staff enjoying the party atmosphere, joining in with entertainment provided by John and Angie and socializing. The rendition of the 12 days of Christmas by "volunteers" caused much merriment. It was a joy to see residents and their families and friends so relaxed and happy, full of Christmas spirit.
A big thank you to our staff members who attended, many bringing along their families.
Our Chefs prepared a tasty buffet in the Olive Room which was also filled with the seasonal smell of mulled wine.
A big thank you to everyone involved for making the day such a huge success.
“Every member of staff at St Michael's has been very caring. They have tended my mother for four months and given her the peace she required before she passed away. They made her last few months very calm. The nurses, Carers, chefs, housekeepers, office and reception staff, and entertainers, (I hope I haven’t missed anyone) all listened to my mum and respected her wishes. Everyone always wanted to say hello to my mum and she always wanted to know how they were. St Michael's is an appropriate saint for all the ‘angels’ who work there. My mum loved to get to the library or garden room where she could sit with my dad. The staff all supported my dad as well during this very stressful time for him. (They have been together for 75 years.). Staff constantly checked that she was OK.
St Michael's is very warm and friendly. The perfect place. Thank you to you all for giving my mum so much.”

“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.”
