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 mother was admitted for respite care and stayed for another six weeks. The staff quickly got to know her likes and dislikes and managed her path to good health with humour and great patience. Mum was encouraged to participate in the many activities, which meant that for the first time in many years she was socialising. Her medical treatment was properly maintained and whenever I visited her she was clean and well groomed. St Michael's care does exactly that, care! Thank you.”

“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.”

“St Michael's is a beautifully situated care home in a tranquil setting. The atmosphere is calm and peaceful.
The care my mother received in the last months of her life was kind, caring and professional. It is a difficult job and the staff here do it wonderfully well.
We were indeed lucky, as a family, to have my mother so well cared for and we can't thank the staff enough for giving us peace of mind.”
