Elder Care Ministries
This ministry promotes Christ-centered, practical and sustainable solutions to successful wholistic aging. It coordinates education and services related to aging, health, finance and social issues for seniors in the church and community in collaboration with community-based elder care programs.
The Adventist Elder Care Ministries program is a service for seniors and caregivers. This program offers educational workshops for individuals and churches that would like to address the needs of seniors in their churches and communities.
This is the newest of the programs in the Community Outreach department and the first focus is to help seniors become prepared for emergencies. Seniors and others with special needs are often unprepared for difficult times. Churches and individuals are encouraged to contact the Community Outreach department for training in helping our vulnerable church members be prepared in case of evacuation, storm, flooding or other calamity.
