We believe that the lost and forgotten of Lynchburg are more often the elderly than and other demographic. Why? Perhaps the value of life or the frustration of a family or the lack of a family… we’re not convinced there is one reason.
What we are convinced of is that every person we meet has value whether they remember you from last week or not. Every person has value whether they can talk back or not. Every elderly person has value whether they are awake or not.
Formerly, CampusSERVE was active in other nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Our students currently visit The Summit in Wyndhurst and The Oaks by E.C. Glass. Students at The Summit are also creating and participating in a bi-weekly church service. Mostly hymns but always Jesus, our leaders say that the contemporary songs throw the elderly off. We stick to what they know.
