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 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.”

“Myself and my sister would just like to thank every last person involved with the care of our mother in her last three weeks of her life. From the receptionists, who were particularly helpful to us, to the hairdresser, the laundry staff, kitchen and of course the very long caring nursing staff who went above and beyond in making our Mum's final days bearable for all of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

“I would like to comment on this wonderful home on behalf of my family.
My dear brother was admitted to the home in May suffering with terminal cancer. Obviously a very sad, difficult time for everyone but from the day he arrived he settled in and relaxed. He was treated with kindness and understanding and all the staff, nursing and care assistants were wonderful.
My brother had severe learning disabilities and so wasn't able to communicate fully with the staff but they went out of their way to get to know him and to understand his needs. They respected his dignity and privacy at all times and made sure he was comfortable and cared for.
As the family, we were always made so very welcome, anytime day or night.
The home itself is a beautiful building which has been well looked after and is clean and welcoming. The rooms are lovely, with character and very good facilities.
The gardens are beautiful.
Thank you to everyone who helped and cared for my dear brother so well.”
