FEBRUARY WMU NEWS
Baptist Retirement Homes are busy “Making Life for Older Adults the Best of Times.” They are helping care for those who cared for us. The fastest growing segment of North Carolina’s population is our “Oldest Old” – individuals 85 years of age and older. In many areas of the state, some of the essential services that this vulnerable population needs are not available or affordable. The Baptist Retirement Homes of NC are trying to meet those needs. There are homes located in Winston-Salem, Albemarle, and Asheville as well as services available from the Baptist Elder Care Network. All gifts received from the February offering are used to provide care and services to Baptist older adults with limited financial resources. I pray God will lead you in helping our older adults.
