Thank You Caregivers


raymond“Raymond” tells the story of a maintenance worker at a nursing home and his relationship with a patient with Alzheimer’s disease.  She believes that the maintenance worker is her son, Raymond, who was killed in action in Vietnam in 1971.

You may or may not have seen this video or heard this song, but Raymond lives the Core Values of Azura Memory Care.  He is Exceptional and Respectful.  Take a few minutes to listen and watch it or listen and watch it again.  It is worth it.  http://www.bretteldredge.com/video/raymond

A heartfelt “thank you” goes to each member of our Azura Memory Care team and to all caregivers for doing what you do.  Every day you make a difference. YOU are a Raymond and for that we thank YOU!

Raymond by Brett Eldredge

I work down at Ashbury Hill
Minimum wage, but it pays the bills
Cleanin’  floors and leadin’ hymns on Sunday

Catherine Davis, room 3-0-3
Sweetest soul you ever could meet
I bring her morning coffee every day

She calls me Raymond
She thinks I’m her son
Tells me get washed up for  supper
‘Fore your daddy gets home
She goes on about the weather
How she  can’t believe it’s already 1941
She calls me Raymond
And that’s alright by  me

She talks about the clothes on the line in summer air
Christmas  morning and Thanksgiving prayer
And stories of a family that I never had
Well sometimes I find myself wishin’ I’d been there

When she calls me  Raymond
She thinks I’m her son
Tells me get washed up for supper
‘Fore  your daddy gets home
She goes on about the weather
How she can’t believe  it’s already 1943
She calls me Raymond
And that’s alright by me

There’s a small white cross in Arlington
Reads Raymond Davis, ’71
Until  she can see his face again
I’m gonna fill in the best I can

When she  calls me Raymond
She thinks I’m her son
Tells me get washed up for  supper
‘Fore your daddy gets home
She goes on about the weather
How she  can’t believe it’s already 1943
She calls me Raymond
And that’s alright by  me

She calls me Raymond
And that’s alright by me
