“I have told the manager and staff how very content and comfortable my brother was at St Michael's. In fact, I tell everyone I speak to!
With multiple health problems, he died peacefully in hospital on 22 February 2018. I cannot put into words how grateful I am that his last few months in the wonderful care of St Michael’s were as good as they possibly could be. All the staff I met at St Michael’s were very friendly and professional. They did everything to make my brother feel at home and one of the ‘family.’
As his only relative, living abroad and visiting just every few weeks, they maintained good communication and even managed to make me feel part of the ‘family’ too.
By expertly managing his health care, they took away my brother’s anxiety in relation to this. His trust in them, definitely went a long way to relieving the stress of his condition.

I feel so lucky to have found St Michael’s for my brother. He was a lovely chap and deserved the best. Thank you so much.”

“I would like to comment on this wonderful home on behalf of my family.
My dear brother was admitted to the home in May suffering with terminal cancer. Obviously a very sad, difficult time for everyone but from the day he arrived he settled in and relaxed. He was treated with kindness and understanding and all the staff, nursing and care assistants were wonderful.
My brother had severe learning disabilities and so wasn't able to communicate fully with the staff but they went out of their way to get to know him and to understand his needs. They respected his dignity and privacy at all times and made sure he was comfortable and cared for.
As the family, we were always made so very welcome, anytime day or night.
The home itself is a beautiful building which has been well looked after and is clean and welcoming. The rooms are lovely, with character and very good facilities.
The gardens are beautiful.
Thank you to everyone who helped and cared for my dear brother so well.”

“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.”
