A Nursing Home Ministry Handbook for Volunteers

Table of Contents
First Edition

Please Note – a comment about Covid 19: We acknowledge there is much turmoil in the long-term care arena because of the effects of the recent “pandemic.” Policies and regulations affecting Christian ministry to the residents have been in a constant state of flux. Uncertainties and circumstances are changing from facility to facility and from one region of the city, state or nation to another. Therefore, we have not made any significant adjustments to this handbook. We offer it to you, the Christian volunteer, for you to adapt this information to the specific ministry situation in which you currently find yourself. May the Lord give you wisdom and grace. Be safe! We love you.
