The 'Diner Boys' played well known classics from the 50's which got residents and visitors alike bopping away. The Ice-Cream van delivered pots of delicious soft cooling Mr Whippy ice-cream which was welcomed on one of the warmest days of the summer, frothy milkshakes were also available and they were so creamy and delicious. Hot Dogs disappeared very quickly too! a firm favourite.
The Garden Room looked so 'COOL' as it was transformed into a 'Diner' for the afternoon, the doors were opened and the Diner theme continued outside into the garden, our staff wore aprons and took orders, whilst the residents chatted to each other, families and friends mingled and laughed together whilst the music was performed.
The afternoon was enjoyed by all and the atmosphere was upbeat and energising...the sun shining made it the perfect day for a rocking success of a party.
“I have told the manager and staff how very content and comfortable my brother was at St Michael's. In fact, I tell everyone I speak to!
With multiple health problems, he died peacefully in hospital on 22 February 2018. I cannot put into words how grateful I am that his last few months in the wonderful care of St Michael’s were as good as they possibly could be. All the staff I met at St Michael’s were very friendly and professional. They did everything to make my brother feel at home and one of the ‘family.’
As his only relative, living abroad and visiting just every few weeks, they maintained good communication and even managed to make me feel part of the ‘family’ too.
By expertly managing his health care, they took away my brother’s anxiety in relation to this. His trust in them, definitely went a long way to relieving the stress of his condition.
I feel so lucky to have found St Michael’s for my brother. He was a lovely chap and deserved the best. Thank you so much.”

“My husband had been at St Michael's Care, nursing home for six months. In all the months he was there, I found the nurses and carers very kind, caring and professional.
I was thoroughly impressed with the standard of care provided by everyone.
Towards the end of my husband's life, not only were they looking after my husband with dignity and kindness but they were supporting me as well.
My big thank you to everyone a St Michael's care.”

“The end of life care my mother received was excellent, the staff are caring and treated the whole family with dignity during the last weeks of my mother's life. I would highly recommend this amazing nursing home and cannot say anything else but "thank you" for everything.”
