Loneliness, anxiety, and feelings of neglect often plague those in senior care facilities so we minister to them by creating Christ-centered community and support.
We visit senior care facilities on a weekly basis where we provide one-on-one visits, church services, Bible studies, and grief support to older adults who often struggle with feelings of despair, uselessness, or spiritual emptiness.
An estimated 60-70% of older adults do not receive a regular visit from family or friends. Currently our team reaches 70 senior living communities—approximately 700 people a month—and has 70 volunteers ministering to the residents’ spiritual, emotional, and societal needs.
