A HOME AWAY FROM HOME WHERE WE CAN RECEIVE DAILY NUTRITIONAL MEALS; EXERCISE TO KEEP OUR BALANCE,MOBILITY AND BODIES HEALTHY; PARTICIPATE IN EDUCATIONAL CLASSES TO FIGHT OFF DEMENTIA; TAKE BUS TRIPS TO AVOID DRIVING; WHEN WE FEEL WE ARE NO LONGER NEEDED OR HAVE NO PURPOSE ANYMORE AND OUR THINKING BECOMES DARK AND GLOOMY WE ALWAYS HAVE A HUG; WHEN SICKNESS AND THOSE OLD AGE AILMENTS ATTACK OUR BODIES WE ALWAYS HAVE A CARING EAR OR SHOULDER TO LEAN ON BECAUSE WE ARE ALL IN THE SAME BOAT UNDERSTANDING THAT AGING TAKES A TOLL ON ALL OF OUR BODIES. OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN ARE VERY BUSY WITH LIVES OF THEIR OWN AND WHEN OUR MATE PASSES ON OR WE FEEL ALONE WE ALWAYS HAVE A SPECIAL SAFE PLACE TO GO SO WE CAN SHARE WHATEVER LIFE THROWS AT US. WE DO OUR BEST TO HELP EACH OTHER ENJOY THE SHORT TIME WE HAVE LEFT ON EARTH--OUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME KEEPS US PUSHING FOR TOMORROW AND OUR INDEPENDENCE. THANK YOU SENIOR CENTER FOR LOVING US "OLD FOLKS".
