Amenities in Catholic Assisted Living Communities in Nevada
People that provide care in these assisted living centers are likely to be as faithful as their residents and can be expected to live that faith as they deliver care. This make them the most important amenity these assisted living centers have to offer.
For Catholics, there are three key times in each day where prayer plays an essential role. The morning mass is the first of these and in these multi-faith centers, the mass will like be offered only once each week. On the other days, seniors can take part in the mass by tuning into the Catholic TV station that run by the Diocese of Las Vegas. The next important time is at 3:00 PM when Catholics stop to offer the prayer for Divine Mercy. Seniors can ask staff to remind them stop for this. They can also be reminded about the Angelus at 6:00 PM.
It may also be possible to find a home that is close enough to a local parish where seniors can make a short journey there for mass and for confession on a regular basis. It may even be possible to organize transportation with a local church group so seniors can become truly active members of the church, while they enjoy all of the other benefits of life in an assisted living facility.
Faith-based assisted living facilities of all faiths will have religious study as one of their core activities, and this will be equally true for non-denominational centers as well as Catholic assisted living facilities. Seniors will join together at times that are both scheduled by the center and other times where they simply set their own agendas. These may be held in a community space or in any of the residential spaces members of the group will invite groupmates into. So even though the center is not specifically a Catholic assisted living facility, it can be a nurturing Catholic environment.
Most assisted living centers will have a chapel and a chaplain that can offer faithful guidance and comfort and even while they are not necessarily ordained in the church, they still offer seniors a caring and soulful service. Seniors will want to get to know this person well, no matter what type of home they decide to settle into.
