The garden became an area also bursting with activity. Photographs were taken in the sleigh set up under the events tent and our special visitors from the Mobile Farm Experience caused merriment and wonder. Tinsel and Star the Reindeers were magical additions to the day. Many people hadn't seen reindeer before and many had never had the opportunity to pet and feed them. Those residents choosing to stay in the warm watched through the windows. The joy and happiness Star and Tinsel brought with them was evident to see Big smiles, squeals of delight and pure enchantment on faces, young and elderly. A big thank you to them and to James and Abby Brindley, the owners of the Mobile Farm Experience. Their lovely dog in his red coat was popular too!

“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.
Thank you.
Well done all.”

“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.”

“My mother was under your care between Dec 2018 - March 2019.
The staff were on the whole very good and treated my mother with dignity and kindness. Unfortunately, the staff did not know my real mother's personality because it was affected by a terrible brain tumour. Thank you to everyone that cared for my mum and now she is at peace away from all her suffering.”
