Inspired by one of the government’s informational campaign slogans that urged the public to wash their hands, cover their face and make space to control infection rates, St Lukes Care Home in Caversham has recorded another ‘pandemic single’, titled ‘Hands. Face. Space.’.
Written and performed by residents and staff as a reminder of the importance of remaining aware of your surroundings, the song’s bespoke lyrics – and toe-tapping backing track – highlights the simple three-step rule to reducing the risk of infection.
“Similar to our 'musical debut last year', the song is once again fun and jovial, but stresses an important message,” said Kim Franks, St Lukes Care Home Manager.
She continued: “As we find ourselves in yet another lockdown, it is important to reiterate the simple things we as a country can do to best protect ourselves and those around us.”
The home’s first song was a message of thanks to friends, families, and surrounding businesses who, throughout last spring’s lockdown, offered the home gifts and donations as a way of expressing their gratitude for the home’s frontline efforts.
The ‘Hands. Face. Space.’ song outlines key themes presented as part of B&M Care’s group-wide infection control protocols.
