Book of the month

Christmas Brain and Soul Boosting

Cognitive, social and spiritual stimulation are highly effective for older people, and Brain and Soul Boosting is ideal material for use with a small group of people amongst whom you want to encourage conversation and fellowship. The workbook includes instructions on how to run a session and session outlines that take a theme around which conversation can develop.

A biblical underpinning for each session also means that they can be used as a devotional aid for the group and some of the ideas will be helpful for a more interactive form of worship service.

These four sessions for download are especially for Christmas, but could be adapted for other times of the year. They are suitable for seniors without dementia, and for those with early-middle stage dementia.

Faith in Later Life

Christmas is fast approaching, and that can involve lots of plans and busyness, often with a big Christmas day lunch with family or friends.
At Faith in Later Life we seek to inspire and equip churches to be the love of Jesus to older people in communities, and so at Christmas we want to share those churches that are offering lunch on Christmas Day, or other fellowship over the Christmas period, for those who would like some company and who would otherwise be alone.

Did you know that Christmas is considered to be the loneliest time of year for over 1.5 million older people in the UK? This year we are again partnering with Premier radio in calling us all to think about how we love those older people around us, at what can be a hard time.

Is your church holding a Christmas activity for older people in the wider community? If so, please let us know so we can add it to our directory of activities. To do this, and for more info, visit our website faithinlaterlife.org/whats-on/christmas/

Don't forget that some people PREFER to be alone if they can't be with the one they love - memories can be wonderful.

I'm one!

That’s what happens as you get older families don’t want you anymore

Not just older people... Younger people too in hostels

All Nations church Ketley are putting food on Xmas day for lonely and old they are even putting Mini busses
