The staff are kind, considerate. Always considered the welfare of my wife, and when I was unwell my welfare as well. You can talk to the staff regarding the care and the management is excellent. The care home is well run and friendly.

My husband went into St Michael's Court in June 2014. From the start he was treated with care and kindness and understanding. The staff have always treated me in the same way, which in the circumstances was much appreciated. On the odd occasion I have had a concern I was listened to by the management and felt I was not being a nuisance. He seems quite content most of the time and still has his sense of humour! I go and see him every day and am always made to feel welcome by the staff.

My mother was taken into the care home in late 2014 with severely progressive MS. Her room is spacious, light and hygienic. The staff are kind and thoughtful. This is a place where they really make an effort. Under the circumstances, this is the best place she could be in.
