A poem of positivity from residents at Morris Care’s Oldbury Grange Nursing Home

To protect our home from covid-19

We can only see loved ones on a computer screen

We are not isolated we are surrounded by staff

Who care for our needs with a smile and a laugh

 

Mothering Sunday is at the weekend

So this message to loved ones we wish to send

Although we are isolating from covid-19

We have access to FaceTime so we can be seen

 

We are being looked after by wonderful staff

Who care for our needs with a smile and a laugh

They all pull together whatever their roles

There is plenty of food and toilet rolls!

 

So we just want to send you a hug and a kiss

To all of our families who we dearly miss
