Dear Nursing Home Visitor,

As you know the COVID-19 virus is especially deadly for the elderly and those with respiratory weaknesses. At this time, most nursing homes have adopted a policy of no visitors unless it is an emergency. In those cases, it is generally limited to family members only.

This means, for the time being, there is no direct ministry to those in nursing homes. However, we can all still pray for those in nursing homes and send cards and letters to anyone you know on the “inside” so to speak. If you do not know anyone, you can send cards to the administrator to be handed out to those capable of comprehending. These cards can express prayers and encouragement for lonely residents. Even when it seems there is nothing we can do, God will show us how to bless others.

May God richly bless you as you pray for the “least of these.”
