We believe Spiritual Care is:
The BLC Spiritual Care Program is designed to help residents, family members, and staff address both Spiritual and Religious needs.
Our senior living community welcomes residents of all faiths. Our Chaplains are “Ecumenical,” which means they care for any and all traditions and faith groups from all walks of life. As a member of the clinical team, our Chaplains use their many years of education and ministry experience to be engaging, uplifting and compassionate in their efforts to combat loneliness, fear, and grief. Entering into a senior adult community can be stressful, and yet when you care for the whole person; body, mind, and spirit, we see seniors find purpose and joy.
Our Chaplains lead inspirational worship services that are filled with old-time favorite gospel singing, prayer, scripture reading, Communion and biblical preaching. We have a weekly Catholic Mass where we partner with local Catholic churches and Eucharistic ministers who share communion and Sunday worship services led by various local church denominations. We help Religious leaders like Pastors, Priests, and Rabbis to connect with their parishioners because we recognize seniors miss their home churches. Our faith tradition is Baptist and our Christian heritage is ground in our belief in Jesus Christ, extending our hands of love and care to all.
