It is important that our residents still retain links with the local community and do not feel forgotten, we are therefore constantly inviting local business's and voluntary groups to come along and visit us, groups include, local schools, day nurseries, social groups and larger organisation such as the local Women's Institute, more details on their visit to follow. All visitor's to St Michael's have something to share with our residents whether it be a musical talent, everyday life experiences or knowledge of local history, or simply just come in to chat to our residents.
Hopefully our network of friends and volunteers will continually grow to the benefit of all our residents now and in the future.

“St Michael's Care gave the very best care to my friend. The home is so clean and has caring staff, cannot praise the home enough.”

“I placed the most precious person to me in your care my mother. I was so worried no one could look after her like me! you all proved me wrong, the care you all provided was the best any one could wish for to me your all angels I just cannot thank you all enough for what you did at the time when my mother needed the special tender care at the end of her life.[. BLESS YOU, ALL.]
WHAT A FANTASTIC TEAM YOU ALL ARE”

“During the two years I have been visiting I have found most of the staff including the nurses to be friendly and helpful. I have noticed on numerous occasions how short staffed the home can be. In spite of that, the staff tend to work it out amongst themselves. There is rarely tension between them. Everybody is well cared for and treated with immense dignity. Only on very few occasions have I heard the staff short tempered. I find that very impressive. Cleanliness is good. The rooms are shabby, the carpets equally so. The bedding is dreadful, old, discoloured, mismatched and ill-fitting. The food is exceptionally good. It is always served hot and well presented. Compliments to the chef. My friend's clothes are always clean but she sometimes smells of urine. Short staffed, I would blame for that. I must add that the positive comments far outweigh the negative ones. I am very happy with the love and care my friend receives. It pleases me that she is very fond of the staff.”
