This poem was written by Christine Tyrrell the Home Manager at Murdoch House Care Home in Wokingham.
You see it on the TV you read it in the news
Another hidden camera, elderly being abuse
I do not condone this, they shouldn’t work in care
But when you read the papers it really is unfair
You never see the good; you only read the bad.
Really makes me angry, really makes me sad
The media seems to love it when things go wrong
Never report the good Homes but this makes us strong
The Homes that give dignity, choice and good quality care,
Wouldn’t sell papers, no good to go on air
