Local care home ministry
As a charity, our aim is to improve the social, emotional and spiritual well-being of older people in care homes in the city and surrounding area. We devised a questionnaire to ascertain current Christian input in care homes and ways to increase the input, if possible. After visiting thirteen care homes in the city, we found that nine out of the thirteen care homes visited would welcome more church services and all thirteen would welcome more social activities and one-to-one visits.
We would therefore love to hear from you if you think you, or anyone else from your church, might be able to offer the gift of friendship to older people in care homes.
Our Care Home Liaison Officer will also be able to visit your church on request, to give a short power point presentation about this work. Do get in touch if you would like to know more about this ministry to older people in care homes.
