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.
“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.”

“In November 2015 my mother had a serious stroke which left her speechless, immobile and unable to swallow. She spent the next year and half in four different hospitals making a slow recovery. On discharge, she was placed in an interim care home and from there I was extremely fortunate to obtain for her a placement at St Michael's. Since her arrival in July 2017 she has made a quantum improvement both physically and psychologically. Because of the interactive nature of the environment, together with the level of care and respect gladly given by staff, I see she has turned a new chapter in her life which is now more fruitful and engaging. Thank you all for your continued commitment.”

“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.”
