We all like to look and feel our best and our lovely ladies and gents who reside here at St Michael's are no exception; that's why every Monday, Christine our hairdresser is always in demand.
Resident's come to visit her in our own Salon 46; to meet & chat amongst themselves whilst waiting for Christine to work her magic.... from a Wash & Set to a Perm or just a Trim, Christine is happy to oblige.
“My husband had been at St Michael's Care, nursing home for six months. In all the months he was there, I found the nurses and carers very kind, caring and professional.
I was thoroughly impressed with the standard of care provided by everyone.
Towards the end of my husband's life, not only were they looking after my husband with dignity and kindness but they were supporting me as well.
My big thank you to everyone a St Michael's care.”

“During the two years I have been visiting I have found most of the staff including the nurses to be friendly and helpful. I have noticed on numerous occasions how short staffed the home can be. In spite of that, the staff tend to work it out amongst themselves. There is rarely tension between them. Everybody is well cared for and treated with immense dignity. Only on very few occasions have I heard the staff short tempered. I find that very impressive. Cleanliness is good. The rooms are shabby, the carpets equally so. The bedding is dreadful, old, discoloured, mismatched and ill-fitting. The food is exceptionally good. It is always served hot and well presented. Compliments to the chef. My friend's clothes are always clean but she sometimes smells of urine. Short staffed, I would blame for that. I must add that the positive comments far outweigh the negative ones. I am very happy with the love and care my friend receives. It pleases me that she is very fond of the staff.”

“We have always been happy with the care that my brother has received at St Michaels. The staff from management down to nurses, carers, and domestic staff all take an interest in the well-being of my brother. He always seems content, warm and comfortable. He also enjoys the food at St Michaels. We hear so many horror stories these days about badly run care home that we often reflect how lucky my brother is to be at St Michaels.”
