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.

“The support and care that my mother has been provided over a 5 month period has been amazing. The friendship of the staff provided was second to none as was their patience with my calls checking up on Mum. The consideration given to medical and palliative support was always well informed. I never had any doubts that Mum was being looked after professionally in a well-provided environment.

I have marked the section 'Management' as 'Good' - the ward supervision, alerts of health deterioration, and administration of care, food, drink, cleaning and activities was excellent, but in my 5 months association with St Michaels, I had no contact to assess the home's 'Management', perhaps because the NHS was the funding provider. So neither can I rate 'Value for Money'.

I would want to thank many by name but this site asks me not to do so. The personal service Mum and my family received made the end of her life calm, enjoyable, pain-free, and dignified in every way that was possible.”

“Our mother was admitted to St Michael's in April 2018 for end of life care. During her stay our mother has received the highest quality care in beautiful surroundings, The decor of the room was of a high standard and also restful. Furniture was constantly being upgraded and all suitable equipment for my mother's support was available.

From the welcome by reception when checking in to signing out in mid-November they remained warm and friendly. Care staff, nursing staff, activity and domestics all gave 100% and made us feel part of their family. Nothing was too much trouble and our mother always looked beautiful, clean and rested when we arrived at any time unannounced.

Sadly our mother passed away in their care but it was only with the love and care given that made it a really special moment. Finally thanks to the management for giving our mother the care and dignity in her final months of life. Bless you all.”

“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.”
