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.
“I cannot rate this care home any higher than excellent. Both my parents were residents and the care, dignity and personal care was outstanding. As a family we were very pleased we used St Michael's as it was incredibly comforting knowing that we had made the right decision to use St Michael's. The personal touch of the treatment both my parents received was amazing and the way the family was treated was incredible. The staff were outstanding and so thoughtful at all times. I cannot say thank you enough for everything they did. The building was so clean and immaculate, you did not feel you were in a care home, more like a hotel. Thank you again.”

“Dad was very well looked after by all the staff and they were friendly to all dad's visitors. I was impressed by the cleanliness and decor of the home and that there were many attractive and smaller rooms where residents could take visitors. The Garden Room was lovely and dad was able to sit in the garden when the weather permitted. His own room was pleasant too. I thought it was a lovely place for dad to have respite care and he was happy being there. I don't know about the food, dad said he didn't eat much and it was bland.”

“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.”
