WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT
CARING FOR THE ELDERLY
All of us know that our parents, spouse and other family members will eventually grow old and face inevitable health challenges.
We even understand that sickness and death are part of living in a fallen world. But we are never quite ready for these realities to hit our own loved ones – especially when a debilitating disease gradually robs them of a once active life or seeps away their memories.
Forty percent of caregivers are also raising young children, living with the stress and heartache this family season can bring. It may become necessary to back out of other things in order to fulfill the primary calling to “be Jesus” by serving an aging loved one during their final days.
Whether with a parent or a spouse, you can take steps to become proactive by understanding some of what this season will bring.
