“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.”

“Dad was very well looked after by all the staff and they were friendly to all dad's visitors. I was impressed by the cleanliness and decor of the home and that there were many attractive and smaller rooms where residents could take visitors. The Garden Room was lovely and dad was able to sit in the garden when the weather permitted. His own room was pleasant too. I thought it was a lovely place for dad to have respite care and he was happy being there. I don't know about the food, dad said he didn't eat much and it was bland.”

“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.”
