Amenities in Catholic Assisted Living Communities in Tennessee

If a senior that is considering life in an assisted living facility is committed to finding a Catholic assisted living facility to call home, there are a fair number across Tennessee to consider and they are mostly non-affiliated, meaning they are not formally run by any Catholic institutions. Take Ave Maria as an example. This senior living home was founded by and is run today by a group of faithful women that saw a need and had the resources to provide assisted living care to seniors that were left wanting. While born from a corporate structure, Dominion assisted living centers are similarly unaffiliated while still guided by their faith.

These are but two examples of the types of faith-based assisted living where faithful Catholics will find a welcoming place to call home. If seniors are willing to look beyond their Catholicism and consider Christian assisted living facilities as well, the number of good choices expands exponentially. They can still find convenient ways to participate in the Eucharistic mass while enjoying a caring environment where faith plays a clear role in every aspect of daily life.

The easiest way to stay true to the Catholic faith is to find a home in a Catholic assisted living center but when that simply isn’t possible, the next best way is to find an assisted living center that is in easy reach of a Catholic church. Seniors can often make their ways to church this way and if they need, they can likely find assistance so they can attend mass and various other church gatherings.

Seniors should also remember the lessons of Jesus, who said, I am everywhere you are. Turn a rock and you will find me. You don’t need a church or a Catholic assisted living facility to remain faithful to God. Yes, it does help when life and faith share the same space in life but, following the faith is a personal journey that does not require any influences beyond God, and his only son, Jesus.

Catholic Retirement Communities in Tennessee -  Religious Amenities

What a Catholic or Christian assisted living centers does is to provide a sacred space, where worship can be focused and uninterrupted. These are the chapels and they provide the same anchor in Catholic assisted living facilities as the church does in local communities. If this is a Catholic assisted living facility, this will be a consecrated place of worship but even if it isn’t, its impact on spiritual life remain strong. Mass will be held here. Communion will be offered here. Confessions will be heard here. And, spiritual counseling will be offered here, so they are really no different from the parish church seniors will be most familiar with.

The person or team of people that provide spiritual guidance in the Catholic and Christian living facilities are an equally important amenity in these centers. In Catholic assisted living centers, they will be ordained members of the Catholic church. In Christian assisted living centers, they will be ordained ministers in one of the Christian denominations. In either case, they are committed members of the faith and can be called upon whenever needed. Like a parish priest, these members of the faith play a central role in providing spiritual care.

These chaplains, and others, will leading various fait-related activities, like bible studies, and various volunteer programs that help seniors find fulfilling ways to spend their days. For example, one of the catholic assisted living residences in Tennessee has a program call “Hats for the homeless” where seniors spend time knitting caps for those that have no place to call home. There are feeding programs too, where seniors help prepare boxed meals that others then deliver to needy individuals. These are just a few examples of the spiritual ways seniors are able to enjoy as they strive to live as Jesus taught us.
