SUPPORT FOR CONGREGANTS

One in three people over the age of 85 have dementia, yet more than half have not been diagnosed.

The Faith Care Connection project seeks to lend support to vulnerable individuals in the community who are living alone and at risk for cognitive changes or other changes due to aging. Our approach is unique in that we are identifying those at risk through church connections, with plans to expand to several other churches in the near future.

Working alongside pastoral care/senior ministers in churches, we have a licensed professional (social worker, nurse, or physical therapist) reach out to those individuals identified to be at risk for cognitive changes. Our role is to assess social isolation, depression, and quality of life; and provide recommendations, referrals, and follow-ups with their care over the course of a year.

If you know someone who fits these criteria and would like to contact one of our Faith Care Connection coordinators, please call (713) 552-0420 ext. 2601, or email faithcareconnection@amazingplacehouston.org.
