As the days cool, the weather becomes more unpredictable and our residents are unable to use our lovely outside spaces, Debbie & Izzi who are our activity co-ordinators encourage and keep residents involved, engaged & entertained with puzzles, jigsaws, board games, arts & crafts and more..
The more simple things like a ten minute chat with a warming drink or a re-assuring hug make all the difference, keep up the good work ladies.
“My mother was admitted for respite care and stayed for another six weeks. The staff quickly got to know her likes and dislikes and managed her path to good health with humour and great patience. Mum was encouraged to participate in the many activities, which meant that for the first time in many years she was socialising. Her medical treatment was properly maintained and whenever I visited her she was clean and well groomed. St Michael's care does exactly that, care! Thank you.”

“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.”

“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.”
