How Church Members Can Help Senior Adults Live a Healthy, Fulfilling Life
It’s not uncommon for seniors to face several physical, mental, and emotional challenges in their daily lives. And as members of the church, there are many things we can do to help with these challenges. By learning about the prevalent issues that seniors often deal with and actively engaging in caregiving, we can truly make a world of difference in the lives of the aging adults in our communities.
Start with the Home - From home modifications to regular cleaning, caregiving starts by making sure seniors are safe and healthy in their homes.
Help Them Connect - Loneliness and depression are some of the most common issues that seniors face on a daily basis.
Encourage Healthy Routines - Many issues that older adults face can be mitigated or even eliminated by engaging in healthy day-to-day routines.
Being involved in your community’s caregiving village doesn’t have to be a full-time job. Learn about the issues that many older adults face each day, and seek ways to help in any way you can. The church can—and should—do our part in improving the everyday lives of the seniors in our communities.
