Whittington House Angels – a relative’s poem

Relatives of a resident at Whittington House nursing home in Cheltenham, delighted us with a beautiful and touching poem they wrote about the care their daughter receives.

Angels at Whittington House

There are angels at Whittington House nursing home

we see them every day,

that understanding look

and the gentle smile,

the angels in Whittington

they go that extra mile,

they all work hard all the time.

Then in our time of tears and frowns,

they help us with the ups and

also with the downs.

They all help Hayley with her pain,

And then they cheer her up again.

So thank you Whittington Angels

for everything you do,

the world is just a better place

with people just like you.

Lyndsey Dixon, Home Manager said

“We were overwhelmed at their thoughtfulness and their description of their feelings on the care their daughter receives. I am so proud of all the team here at Whittington House and their dedication to our residents. so it was very heart-warming to see it so beautifully summed up in this poem.”
