Nursing Home Volunteers
Matthew 25: 35-40
Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? When did we see you ill or in prison and visit you?
And the king will say to them in reply, "Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me."
Mission Statement for Nursing Home Volunteers
With the words of Matthew 25:35-40 as our beacon, we strive to bring Christ's compassion, presence and ministry, as well as a sense of inclusion in our Christian community, to the residents of Life Care of Nashoba Valley.
We are a group of volunteers, men and women, who share a common goal. That is to bring to the residents of Life Care of Nashoba Valley the presence of Jesus in their everyday life. We strive to do this by our care and compassion for all who reside there. Our actions include visiting the Alzheimer's unit for song and prayer, and for Catholic residents of the nursing home:
- Assisting our Parish Priest in Masses celebrated in the Community Room
- Conducting Communion services when Mass is unavailable
- Leading the residents in recitation of the Rosary and song
- Bringing Communion to residents who are unable to attend services in the Community Room
- Offering seasonal resources to the residents (Example: Palms, Lenten Devotions, Ashes)
- Bringing the Parish's weekly bulletin to the residents
