14th – 21st March 2016 Dementia Prayer Week

Please remember older people in your prayers, especially those living with dementia.

 

Blessed are they who understand my faltering step and shaking hand.

Blessed are they who know my ears today must strain to hear the things they say.

Blessed are they who seem to know my eyes are dim and my answers slow.

Blessed are they who look away when my tea was spilled at the table today.

Blessed are they who with a cheery smile will stop to chat for a little while.

Blessed are they who never say “You’ve told me that story twice a day”.

Blessed are they who know my ways and bring back memories of yesterdays.

Blessed are they who erase the days and care for me in loving ways.

Blessed are they who make it known I’m loved, respected and never alone.
