Caring at Christmas


You know that every care home is full of doom and gloom. Where old folk are mistreated, they have a life of doom.

You know they must smelly and stink a lot of wee, but maybe for this Christmas you'll spare a thought for me.

On Monday we are singing with the local village choir. We may not be too tuneful, but you've got to love a trier.

On Tuesday we are going to see the Christmas lights, with cocoa and a mince pie there's not a frown in sight.

On Wednesday we are playing a festive game or two. You best not come and join us, we might change your point of view.

On Thursday there's a donkey for our own nativity play, with tiny little angels you don't see that each day!

On Friday we have Santa with a sack full of delights, you better not report us he's such a joyful sight.

On Saturday we do flowers to decorate the tables, and remember the traditions and the baby in the stable.

On Sunday there's more singing with glasses full of sherry, setting off the crackers and getting very merry.

Christmas in our care home is full of love and light, we may get very busy but we care with all our might.

Remember that we're working, and are in both night and day. But if you see our care home you might just want to stay! Jan Millward©
