Jeanette our Activities Co-ordinator worked alongside the residents of Swarthmore and helped them write their own words to the music of 'What a Wonderful World' A capella style.
The words are very personal to our residents as they chose them amongst their fellow friends within the home. You can read the wording below:
Friends at Swarthmore
Seated on a bench, Its a Summer's day
Flowers Bloom, In the month of May,
Oh, how lucky I am to have friends at Swarthmore.
The ramblng rose, In shades of pink
The warm summer sun, Give our glasses a chink
Oh how lucky I am to have friends at Swarthmore.
Rhododendrons in the garden
So pretty, a display, Flowers on the terrace
Bring smiles every day, Families come to see us
At last, they can stay
Still, there's no hugging, When they go away.
All the staff are kind, we know them well
Patience and care, which they all excel
Oh how lucky I am, to have friends at Swarthmore.
