That’s the way we all became the Aberdeen Bunch…

(sing to the tune of “The Brady Bunch…”)

Here’s a story
Of a Home Care Agency
Who were busy with clients of their own
Here are 9 people, working remotely,
But they were NOT alone.
And the 90 staff
We have caring for clients
Are hero’s truly, each and every one
We are banding close together
During COVID
The battle will be WON.
The Aberdeen, The Aberdeen,
That’s the way, we became the
Bunch Called … Aberdeen.

Second Chapter, of office Aberdeen

Who were busy working Oh so hard at home

The rest of our amazing crew, are caring for Clients

But they were not “a lome.”

Reaching out to Aberdeen Team, is what we do.

With our calls, visits, thanks and yes our prayer

With their masks and gloves, they carry so bravely

Heros all, they need to know how much we care.

Team Aberdeen…

Team Aberdeen…

We are oh so proud of our

Amazing team, it’s ABERDEEN.
