Finding the right retirement community is one of the most important decisions many seniors face today. There are so many factors to consider—including what the social support structure and senior care options available at a given community are like—that the choice can feel overwhelming.
However, beyond a great location, comprehensive levels of care, and desirable amenities, many seniors and their families are also adding abundant faith and fellowship opportunities to their list of criteria for finding the best place to spend retirement. And, they have a lot of options when it comes to faith-based retirement communities that fit their spiritual needs.
Statistics compiled in 2014 showed that about 81% of continuing care retirement communities are owned and operated by non-profit organizations. Of those non-profit communities, about 75% were affiliated with faith-based organizations, which included several Christian denominations and many with non-denominational values, as well. These numbers were projected to grow steadily as demand has increased.
Here at Calvary Homes, we are proud to be among the growing ranks of faith-based retirement communities, as we believe an approach to retirement living and senior care that glorifies God truly enriches lives.(more…)
