“Our mother was admitted to St Michael's in April 2018 for end of life care. During her stay our mother has received the highest quality care in beautiful surroundings, The decor of the room was of a high standard and also restful. Furniture was constantly being upgraded and all suitable equipment for my mother's support was available.

From the welcome by reception when checking in to signing out in mid-November they remained warm and friendly. Care staff, nursing staff, activity and domestics all gave 100% and made us feel part of their family. Nothing was too much trouble and our mother always looked beautiful, clean and rested when we arrived at any time unannounced.

Sadly our mother passed away in their care but it was only with the love and care given that made it a really special moment. Finally thanks to the management for giving our mother the care and dignity in her final months of life. Bless you all.”

“First initial contact is extremely important. I arrived unannounced close to lunch time and was greeted courteously. I asked if the home had any vacant rooms for my 97 year old mother and would it be possible to show me the room/s and other resident areas. I was politely advised that the duty nurse was just finishing a task and would dutifully assist my request shortly. I was asked if would like a cup of tea or coffee while waiting - an excellent welcome I thought. When the duty nurse appeared and after formal introduction, I was shown around the home and the different areas i.e. dining, lounge and garden etc. I was shown rooms that might be suit my mother should we elect to place her in St Michael's Care.
I asked several pertinent questions some were the number of staff on duty at night, frequency of staff training i.e. H & S, COSH, Fire Prevention etc. very satisfied.
My mother, now passed away, was happy and comfortable and was diligently cared for by the excellent staff. Thank you.”

“My mum went into St Michael's Care for end of life care. The staff and home is just amazing and can't thank them enough for what they did for my mum, nothing was too much trouble. The care my mum received and the support to me was first class at such a painful time.”
