One of the biggest spiritual questions that seniors wrestle with pertains to the meaning of life. Later in life, people want to know that their lives have meaning and purpose. As many seniors draw closer to their faith during the later years in life, many of them enjoy having close relationships with companions who share similar religious beliefs and practices. For this reason, many assisted living communities are offering either specific religious services or inter-denominational services for their residents.
Llanfair Retirement Community is sponsored by Ohio Presbyterian Retirement Services. The retirement community of Llanfair is guided by faith-based values and has a strong relationship with the community churches. Llanfair employs a full-time pastor and brings in religious leaders from other churches to provide services for other faiths. The facility also offers assisted living amenities such as help with personal care, meals, housekeeping, and transportation.
In 1997, Glen Manor Home for Jewish Aged and the Orthodox Jewish Home merged and became Cedar Village Senior Care and Community. The organization has grown to serve the greater Cincinnati Jewish community. Senior residents of Cedar Village have access to wellness checks, medication management, personal care, laundry services and trash removal. Religious services are conducted every weekend. As health concerns increase, residents can change to a higher level of memory care or skilled nursing care.
Episcopal Retirement Services has worked to improve the lives of seniors since 1951. One of their first efforts was the Memorial Homes Foundation that served 20 senior women in one home in Clifton, Ohio. The thriving program has grown to include independent living, assisted living, memory support, long-term nursing care, and short-term rehabilitation. The program operates 11 different senior living programs throughout the Cincinnati area, including St. Paul Village.
St. Paul Village is a secure assisted living community with nurses and social workers on-site. The program offers transportation and activities on and off-site. The facility is conveniently close to major hospitals. Chaplains work in the community and conduct weekly spiritual services.
The Deaconess Communities have their roots in Lutheran theology. Cottingham Retirement is a Deaconess Community that offers independent senior living, assisted living, short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, and memory care under one roof. The Deaconess Communities established Cottingham in 1984, as a non-denominational retirement community. The community rental fees include weekly housekeeping and daily meals, as well as assistance with personal care. Nursing assistants monitor medications, help residents to the dining room, and perform around-the-clock room checks.
