Caregiver Resouces

Unpaid caregivers make up the largest source of long-term care services in the U.S.—34 million people or 16 percent of the adult population helps care for an adult 50 or older. 

 

Caregivers can feel alone. We want you to know that you are not alone and we are here to help support you in your role of caring for your loved one. If you are interested in our pastor and church members coming out and sharing communion with yourself and homebound loved one please contact us and let us know.

Sunday mornings it may be difficult to get out and attend church. You can spend time in worship with your loved ones from the comfort of home as we stream our worship service live on our Facebook page.

Matthew 25:40
“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did it for Me.”
