The Homefront Philosophy
by Jon Williams
Homefront Personal Care
To tell you about the Homefront philosophy, I need to tell you about a song from the 70's that made an impression on me. It was written by an american singer songwriter named John Prine, and deals with some of his observations on aging.
The name of the song is "Hello in There"
The chorus goes like this:
ya know that old trees just grow stronger
and old rivers grow wilder every day
but old people
they just grow lonesome
waiting for someone to say
hello in there
The final verse begs a kindness. It asks:
So if you're walking down the street sometime
and spot some hollow ancient eyes
please don't just pass 'em by and stare
as if you didn't care
say hello in there
By the end of the decade, the number of
seniors in the United States age 65 and older
will soar by 60%. There will soon be more
people over the age of 65 than under the
age of 17. There is an ever increasing need
to find solutions for the health and well being
of our senior population. Studies show that
well being in seniors is related to their self
worth. Do they feel needed? Do they feel
relevant? Is somebody there to listen?
To say hello in there?
Take 5 minutes and listen to this song.
In a way, the message in this song is our
mission statement. We exist to provide
first class home health care and personal
service, while at the same time recognizing
the importance of kindness, respect and
friendship. Homefront Personal Care
is here to say hello in there.
Here is a feel good message that I promise will make you smile. Watch it and then share it with
your loved ones. We all need to be validated.
