Words from a Relative at Christmas

To Kim, Emma and all the wonderful staff at Crantock Lodge

Thank you for all your Kindness

Thank you for all your dedication and care

Thank you for your deep sensitivity

And for our Mum always being there

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic

You have done all you possibly could

To minimise the deep sense of separation

And to make Mum’s life happy and so very Good

In these times of such uncertainty

Of not seeing loved ones for such a long while

Thank you for making it possible still

For us to talk with Mum and to see her smile

Crantock Lodge is really a “home from Home”

You have literally become a second family

Mum simply thinks the world of you all

As do M,J and Me

Absolutely nothing is too much trouble for you  

Ordering a hoist so mum can sit out on a chair

Painting her nails pink, a touch of lipstick

Arranging for her hairdresser to cut and style Mum’s hair.

And taking the time to sit and chat with Mum

Especially when you are so busy at this particular time

These acts of simple kindness don’t go unnoticed

We know you all go that extra mile to ensure she is fine

Facilitating outside visits for J and M

Baking a wonderful birthday cake –a 90th birthday surprise

Giving Mum these much needed hugs when we cannot

Filled our hearts and bought tears to our eyes.

And so as Christmas time now approaches

Though I sadly can’t be with Mum this year

I know in my heart she will be happy

Surrounded by you all, her “Second Family” –people so very dear

-people with very big hearts ,who just simply care
