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!

“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.”

“My mum went into St Michael's Care for end of life care. The staff and home is just amazing and can't thank them enough for what they did for my mum, nothing was too much trouble. The care my mum received and the support to me was first class at such a painful time.”

“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.”
