In Maryland, there are assisted living facilities by the dozens, but only a few are Christian assisted living facilities. For faithful seniors, they may have to look instead for assisted living facilities that are in close proximity to houses of worship, where they can easily reach out to the local church community for the spiritual care they need. So, the job at hand in Maryland will be to find an assisted living facility where the staff and management share their faith and will make the effort needed to help their residents find the support they need to develop their own personal relationship with God.

Amenities in Christian Assisted Living Communities in Maryland

It may seem a bit counter-intuitive, but faithful seniors could find settling into a Christian assisted living that isn’t really focused on the faith may be more liberating and more fulfilling than life in a proper setting, with a dedicated pastor. They will be faced with finding their own strength, as they work to build their uniquely personal relationship with God.  So, while it might be easier, it could be quite a bit more spiritual when they are making their home in a place where faith is less of a priority.

Pastor and shepherds are one in the same. They are God’s messengers, leading their flock to a deeper understanding and a richer faithful experience. However, they are not the only way to find this rich experience. For anyone of real faith will know, God is always with them and if they call on Him, He will guide them to that personal relationship that makes faith such an enriching experience. Seniors just need to make the commitment to get to that place in their faith where they can feel God’s presence in all that they do and all that they experience.

One thing seniors can count on, even in places that aren’t dedicated Christian assisted living center, is a chapel and chaplain that can offer support in their efforts. These are places of worship and it really doesn’t matter who else or how else these chapel are used. For the faithful, they will always be a place where they can focus and find God when they need Him most.

Activities that are focused on faith, like bible study and prayer sessions, are a staple for the truly faithful and should be part of the regular activities that seniors would expect to find in a Christian assisted living facility. In secular homes, they could be missing but still, with a bit of effort and the support of community managers, they are things that can be added easily. Seniors may need to reach out to their fellow seniors to create enough of a groundswell to get these things added, but that is exactly what community managers are looking for. They are looking for groups of seniors, with share interests, so they can add programs that fulfill those needs.

Christian Assisted Living in Maryland - General Amenities

Assisted living facilities are also know as intermediate care centers. They are designed for seniors that can no longer live comfortably in an independent setting, but are active and healthy enough not to need fulltime nursing care. They are determined to continues to live as independently as possible though, so anything more than some basic assistance would be unnecessary and probably unwelcome.

These are the seniors assisted living facilities are designed to care for. They are built to provide personal care with the basics, like bathing, dressing and grooming. They are tasked with helping seniors eat when shaky limbs make that a bit too difficult. They are staffed to help seniors move safely around the assisted living center without the risk of dangerous falls that can take an otherwise active senior far more dependent on care then they should be.

Assisted living centers also free seniors from the daily drudgery of household chores, like cleaning, doing laundry and changing linens. They also free them from having to worry about maintenance, so all that’s left may be a bit of cleanup after the morning coffee or afternoon snack.

Assisted living facilities offer seniors private spaces, in the form of private apartment. Floor plans typically include studio suites and one-bedroom units and may also include companion suites where two bedrooms and a common living space can be shared by family members and close companions. For those that are happy to share, they can also find semi-private rooms that are share by up to four seniors.

Assisted living facilities offer seniors 3 meals a day, but these are much more than just a bit of nourishment. These are restaurant-quality meals, prepared by professional chefs, and served in fine dining rooms, where seniors join and share great food and good times. These meals are community builders and that makes them far more important than just a meal.

Speaking of fun, assisted living facilities are all about keeping life active, fun and educational. Community managers get to know their seniors and their interests, and then design activities that help them find enriching and enjoyable ways to spend their days. They will include all sorts of things but one thing will be consistent. These activities will be done in community with others, they will require active participation and they will often be educational.

Maryland may not be a center for Christian assisted living facilities but that doesn’t mean it has nothing good to offer faithful seniors. It will just take a bit more of a personal commitment from seniors as they enjoy the basic care they need. Give us a call to speak to a knowledgeable assisted living advisor in MD.
