Prayer Diary: Care homes in our parishes

We all like to be independent and do things for ourselves. Some of us reach a stage in life where we need a bit of help and support at home. Some of us need 24-hour support:

  • thank you that there are Care Homes in our parishes which not only offer care and support, but also strive to respect our dignity and independence
  • we pray for residents feeling the stress of being somewhere new and different, and not being able to do what they used to do. Give them patience and grace when dealing with staff, family or other residents, and not let frustrations show
  • Thank you for all the staff and volunteers who work in the homes, cheerfully and helpfully. Be with them, and help them to go on doing that. Give them patience when residents may behave in ways that are challenging
  • Thank you for the different activities and therapies that happen each day
  • We ask for your blessing on residents and staff who are not well, or are feeling apprehensive of the future
  • Thank you for family and friends who are faithful in coming to see us. Help families cope with the mixed feelings they have when someone close goes into a Care Home
