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.
“The support and care that my mother has been provided over a 5 month period has been amazing. The friendship of the staff provided was second to none as was their patience with my calls checking up on Mum. The consideration given to medical and palliative support was always well informed. I never had any doubts that Mum was being looked after professionally in a well-provided environment.
I have marked the section 'Management' as 'Good' - the ward supervision, alerts of health deterioration, and administration of care, food, drink, cleaning and activities was excellent, but in my 5 months association with St Michaels, I had no contact to assess the home's 'Management', perhaps because the NHS was the funding provider. So neither can I rate 'Value for Money'.
I would want to thank many by name but this site asks me not to do so. The personal service Mum and my family received made the end of her life calm, enjoyable, pain-free, and dignified in every way that was possible.”

“I am very impressed with the level of care my husband is receiving. He arrived from a previous care home and was rather neglected. He is now being cared for and it is the best it can be. I can now relax and not worry. The staff are friendly and professional.”

“My step mother was admitted to St Michael's after a 10-week spell in the Hospital. She had previously been in a residential home.
We were very anxious as one hears such horror stories about some nursing homes, but our fears were soon put to rest. From the reception staff to the cleaners, carers and nurses they are, without exception, wonderful. Sadly she was very frail when she arrived and was only there for six weeks before she passed away. The care she received for the last part of her life was, without a doubt, the best she could have received anywhere. Our heartfelt thanks to all concerned.”
