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.

“Mum has been there two years after stroke in 2012. My mother was really active before her stroke. I never wanted to put my mum in a nursing home, but being disabled myself doing all we could as a family at home. First few years caring for her at home we had no option in the end and put her in a nursing home. She needed 24 hr care. Has taken a few changes to find the right one, but we have finally found it. Carers are really good with her and concerns you may have. The manager is really helpful. There are always problems when relatives adapt to living in a nursing home big change for them. Staff and management have done best to make mum feel at home. Problems fixed no problem, they are used to caring for the elderly they now, want works best for the peace of mind of our loved ones, advise, help make decisions. Makes loved one's worries go away.

“From the day I viewed St Michael's I was taken by the warm reception of the staff I met. I expressed the excellent feeling I had about the home to my sister who became a patient. She loved her stay there and still did til the night she died there. I have nothing but praise for all their caregiving. The staff, from cleaners to experienced nurses was absolutely wonderful.”
