Moving Forward

This song was compiled from fictional Headlines generated by Managers in their first diagnostic meeting.

Moving forward – look to the future
I could have had another ‘good’
Outstanding, shining, every day is different
It’s never too late to fall in love

Broken down mini-bus in the snow
Difference of opinion – I almost left
Fire-door failure – residents at risk
Family say ‘Mum not fed!’

Moving forward – look to the future
Residents smiling, now things are changing
100th birthday preparations for a celebration
The little people coming – and interacting

Particular staff for individual skills
Unrealistic expectation
Tongue bitten firmly – who is aware?
Betwixt and between – endless frustration

Moving forward – look to the future
A huge sigh of relief
Redecoration turns us dementia friendly
And a dentist with no drama saved my teeth.

Is there somewhere else to go
Performances creating tension
Fighting for the new recruits
External heatwave leads to dehydration

Moving forward – look to the future
Highlights and challenges, ups and downs
Moving forward – look to the future
Headlines and news reports – smiles and frowns

Moving forward – look to the future
Moving forward – look to the future
