Christian Retirement Communities in Mississippi - Religious Amenities

  1. Start with the minister. As a faithful Christian, you know how important their role is in your community church. You understand how they set the tone and draw the faithful into a real community of faith and mutual support. The role is no different and no less important when the flock they minister to is part of a Christian assisted living facility. So, talk to the minister. Talk to some of the residents too. Get a good feel for how they approach ministry and how comfortable you may be with that approach.
  2. Learn about the caregivers in the Christian assisted living facilities. It can be reasonably argued that those with as strong a commitment to the faith as the seniors they serve, will render the most effective service. Keep in mind, care in an assisted living center can get very personal, even embarrassing if offered by a caregiver that lack compassion and discretion. When care is administered in faith, the risks are greatly diminished. Again, talk to the staff and residents and you should get a balanced and honest assessment.
  3. The chapel is the next thing to consider. First, is it a dedicated space, with 24/7 access. True faith doesn’t operate on a schedule. The need to commune with our Lord could come during a restless night and easily as it can after enjoying a morning coffee. If the chapel isn’t open and ready to welcome anyone in need, then it will have failed the seniors it is there to support.
  4. Finally, learn about the faithful activities these Christian assisted living centers sponsor or support. At the very least, you would expect them to include bible study, either lead by the center’s minister or invited preachers and educators. You should also expect to see programs that encourage seniors to participate in things like the choir, to participate in ministry and to become active faith-based volunteerism. No matter what the center offers, be sure you will find a level of satisfaction that will help you on your unique journey to building a personal relationship with God.
