Luther Manor offers the expertise of our staff members to our partner congregations through the Senior Ministry Partnership Initiative (SMPI). Through the SMPI, our partner congregations are equipped with the education, resources and funding to respond to the changing and complex profile of maturing Christians. The initiative began in 2007 with an educational symposium and continues through consultation with and support of our congregational partners.
Luther Manor offers the services of parish nurses at several of our partner congregations. Parish nurses help maturing adults, their families and congregational members embrace health and wholeness. Parish nurses and their health ministry assist congregations to reclaim the Gospel message to teach, preach and heal. As a member of the partnering congregation’s staff, they connect those they serve to community resources that promote healthy living, train volunteers, and provide education and personal health counseling.
Luther Manor sponsors and co-sponsors support groups for seniors, family members and caregivers. Convenient meeting times and locations allow participants to share experiences, strength and hope.
