The return visit was a huge success. The arrival of Percy Powell Cotton's travel trunk caused excitement and anticipation in the Garden Room. The treasures emerged from the trunk and were passed around for our residents to examine, items included:
Percy's safari jacket with the claw marks from a Lion attack, the Whiskey flask with the bullet whole ( the flask actually saved his life!) also amongst the items were a Buffalo hide saddle bag, & numerous items with so many stories related to them...what a character Percy was.
Our residents were captivated and swept away with the adventure stories. as more artefacts were produced including a Hippo hide, camera case, a Zebra hair bull whip, an ever ready battery torch, calliper's and Percy's personal shovel.
We have only one question... when will you return to fascinate and entertain us again?
“My mother was under your care between Dec 2018 - March 2019.
The staff were on the whole very good and treated my mother with dignity and kindness. Unfortunately, the staff did not know my real mother's personality because it was affected by a terrible brain tumour. Thank you to everyone that cared for my mum and now she is at peace away from all her suffering.”

“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.”

“Mum was living in St Michaels for just short of five years.
During her time there she received a very good standard of care.
The home was cleaned to a high standard.
The staff from top to tail showed respect whilst being cheerful and considerate.
Well done all.”
