A journey in time with Alzheimer's

Mealtime … on the unit

Visiting … mealtime … special time of day
Patiently waiting … eagerness NOT … at bay
Where to sit … no not there … maybe over here
Trouble … averted … some are … too near
Then comes … loners … just put food down
They will eat … thinking … no one is around
Some fed … or set-up … others feed themselves
Staff … here ‘n there … silent little elves
Do you want a drink … a napkin … or a spoon
Whatever works to finish … hopefully by noon
But never in a hurry … a quiet … atmosphere
Kindness … calmness … touches … so sincere.
