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.
“My father-in-law was admitted to St Michael's Care in April 2017. He had very complex and sometimes very difficult needs but our worries soon evaporated with the professionalism and kindness of all the staff. Not only did the staff care for him with respect and dignity they also reassured and involved us with every step of his care and forward planning. I cannot stress enough the kindness and patience shown by the staff. Thank you.”

“My mother had a short stay at St Michael's but she was looked after and cared for excellently. Mum was very poorly but nothing was too much trouble for the staff at St Michael's. It was a very caring home and kept spotlessly clean. There was plenty going on and the social team didn't leave those out who were unable to leave their rooms even if they went in and had a chat or read a book with them. Receptionist very kind and helpful.”

“These are quotes from a letter I sent to St Michael's Care last week after my mother aged 103 died after having spent 6 years in the home.
"You have allowed and enjoyed mum expressing her personality, she has felt totally at home, she felt at ease with whoever was with her she has been able to express her thoughts and views as you made her feel "at home" with all of you."
"Thank you for enjoying her, encouraging her to do her washing, enjoying her moans and laughing and joking with her. You helped all of us understand the needs of the elderly."
"She constantly said how happy she was with all of you. We could go on and on and that is your strength. We will miss her, you will miss her but her memory is there for all of us."”
