One of the greatest treasures in life is our seniors...
Yet even though they are one of our greatest treasures to often they are forgotten or neglected. In this day and age we have moved from a relational culture where we all use to have front porches to a independent culture where our porches have either moved to the backyard or in the living room.Perhaps it is time we got relational again? That is what we are doing with our local seniors in town, to many have become widowed and lonely. even some don't have theproper care to cover their basic needs. Why not come and give us a hand restoring the lives of these beautiful people.
Here is what we have been up to:
Seniors Visiting Team: There is a team of volunteers that visit the Sunshine & Hillview lodge's, as well as the Continuing Care units. The Community Cares Ministry team seeks to bring hope and light to those who they visit.
Social Assistance: Through corresponding with our local health care and Seniors coordinator's we have found that some seniors in our town need help with food & clothing. We have become a resource in ensuring those needs are met.
Spiritual Needs: It had come to our attention that some of our seniors wanted more spiritual food. In response we have organized a weekly Seniors Bible Study run by volunteers at the Sunshine Lodge.
