A new song, written and performed by Sheffield Harmony, has been released to mark the National Day of Reflection.
The song, which shows support for carers across the country, was performed at Northfield nursing home in Sheffield after staff and residents observed a national minute’s silence at 12pm.
Led by end-of-life charity Marie Curie, the National Day of Reflection reflects on the lives of the people who have died during the last two years and support the millions of people who are grieving. Whether from Covid or any other cause.
The day marked the anniversary of the first Covid-19 lockdown in the UK. The months that followed have been extremely difficult for people living and working in care homes as visits from family were restricted by law and care home residents across the country lost their lives to the pandemic.
Nicola Richards, Founder of Support Social Care Heroes, said:
It’s hard to overstate the pressure care homes have been under over the last two years. Our carers, residents and their families have faced it all with a level of unity and fortitude which makes me proud to work in the sector.
It’s so important for us all to take this time to remember the loved ones we have lost and to support everyone who is still grieving.
