Here’s to the nursing home staff.
The ones to answer the phones. Mop the floors. Clean the toilets. Dish out medication. Make medical appointments for patients.
It’s not a job that I could do because I’m too much of a princess.
These are the people who take care of my mum every. single. day. They’ve taken someone who was in a bad way and have restored her to the healthy woman she deserves to be. They let me be selfish and visit mum not-often-enough and still know that she’s in good hands and in the best nic that she’s been in for a very long time.
They’re on shit wages, yet they work with compassionate hearts and smiles on their faces.
