Seniors of faith who spent much of their life as part of a church congregation may already know that it’s important to support pastors and other spiritual leaders. But even if we know this intellectually, it can be easy to overlook this important work as a Christian. Spiritual leaders often seem to know the answers and have things under control, so it can be easy to forget that these are human beings who are dealing with all the same things we are.
Are you an over-apologizer, someone who chronically says "I'm sorry" or expresses regret for things you can't control? Many people share this trait, and often they have no idea how habitual apologizing has become.It's important to differentiate between unnecessary over-apologizing and offering appropriate expressions of regret when you've hurt someone or made a mistake. Having enough humility and compassion to apologize when warranted is an invaluable character trait that strengthens all your relationships. It's also a way to demonstrate your faith-based values.
Some seniors enter their golden years with only one or two daily medications, while others find they need a daily chart to keep track of their pills, inhalers and vitamins. And, it's not unusual for prescriptions to range from a few dollars to staggering high sums. The increasing costs of medications may cause some residents in an assisted living community to worry about how they can keep up.
National Certified Nurses day is March 19, and National Nurses Week falls in early May each year. But you don't have to wait for one of these "official" times to show appreciation to nurses in your life. Seniors in assisted living communities may have reason to appreciate a wide range of nurses who work to help them keep up with medical issues and live as healthy and vibrant a lifestyle as possible.
James 5:13 says, "Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise."It's a theme that repeats throughout the Bible. We're supposed to come before God with all things — the good and the bad. Even the mediocre and the seemingly nothing! Bring everything to God, the Scripture says.And yet many people struggle with prayer. Even seniors of faith who have been praying for years or decades may find their prayer life waxing and waning. Sometimes, a small change in habit or environment can make a big change in your prayer life. Seniors at the Park Regency Thornton assisted living community might consider some of these ideas for getting the most from prayer time in their assisted living apartments.

MAKING PEACE WITH THE NEED FOR HELPAsking for help can be difficult, no matter who you are or what age you're at. But as humans, we're not designed for a solitary existence. In fact, the Bible is pretty clear that we need each other, that we are built for fellowship and that God purposefully gives us things we can't handle on our own so that we will turn to him. Making peace with the need for help as you age — and understanding the freedom that can come in turning to God and other people for assistance — can help you enjoy your retirement so much more.
August 18th is International Homeless Animals Day. It's the perfect time to volunteer your time and increase awareness of the available pets in the area. Opening your heart to a dog or a cat in need creates bonds with animals who are in desperate need of love and attention. It's also an excellent way to meet other animal lovers and improve your health and overall mood. Consider the following ways volunteering can help seniors find purpose while benefiting animals in need.
