It's NATIONAL NURSES WEEK in Canada! Here's my tribute to the caring, committed, and dedicated nurses at the Shepherd's Care Foundation. May God reward you abundantly for the compassion you show to those who need you!


Our nursing staff at Shepherd’s Care
Deserves the term, “Beyond Compare!”
It’s round the clock, I do declare,
You’ll find a nurse on duty there.

Before Almighty God she pledged
To use her knowledge faithfully
To serve devoted and committed;
Treat matters confidentially.

A nurse is gifted with compassion,
With loving hands and listening heart,
With willingness to care for others,
Then write their progress in the chart.

All that she does is person centered –
Respecting needs unique or rare!
To celebrate the lives of seniors
Plans are designed for wellness care.

Working with doctors, pharmacists,
With all those specialists and staff,
She deeply cares for families -
To share a prayer, a hug , or laugh!

The Nightingales at Shepherd’s Care
Are worth all praises that we’ve said!
Today we THANK YOU our dear nurses
For TLC from A-Z!
