Due to changes in mobility and cognition over time (and in the midst of a global pandemic), it's only natural that our needs change as well. Not every senior has family nearby to lean on, which is where the church community can step up and support seniors in a big way.

Church Boosts Health and Wellness in Seniors
By Jason Lewis
Aging brings many changes in life. Getting older may mean that your activity slows down a bit, and the years can have a way of putting distance between you and old friends, which results in less social interaction. For seniors, the risk of isolation is high. Loneliness is not a path to good health, so it's essential for seniors to be engaged. One way to increase social engagement and battle loneliness is to become involved in a church, and such spiritual connectedness may benefit health as well.
