SUPPORTS FOR DAILY LIVING

 

When it's hard to get up in the morning,

And tough to get washed and dressed;

When you can't stand long in the kitchen

To cook and do all the rest;

There's a great new solution for us

With staff who are cheerful and giving,

To give us the help we are needing,

Called Supports for Daily Living.

A knock on our door in the morning,

Makes sure we survived the night,

They ask what they can do for us,

Just checking to see we're all right.

Someone will do all our laundry,

They'll vacuum and mop the floor,

And help us with our shower;

Bring meals or anything more.

For those whose life is a burden

This program is blessing us here.

We want to be independent

But time marches on, I fear.

The years have left their imprint

As aging has taken its toll;

But now we can enjoy living

With thanks and joy in our soul.

- Honoria A. Groves, OSCR Client
