Enriching the lives of homebound seniors and their caregivers 

 and inviting our community to join us

Koinonia Senior Care is a faith-based, non-profit ministry that celebrates the aged, encourages the caregiver, partners with churches. and involves the community in our efforts to live out our values, principles, and CARE services to seniors. The why of what we do is as important to us as how we do it.

We value the senior who wants to stay in their home as long as it is safe.  We value the family caregiver who strives to honor their loved one’s desires while maintaining their own well-being.  We value the caregivers and staff working in senior living communities for those who can no longer live at home but need additional assistance. We value the role of the church in meeting the spiritual needs of their homebound congregation. We value the roles of business, education, and community as good Samaritans who teach and reach out to their elderly neighbors because it’s the right thing to do. We value God, family, honesty, integrity, and humility.

Our principles are simple and Scriptural.  We treat others as we want to be treated.  We come alongside the family who are the primary caregivers. We partner with our community on ways we can more deeply serve our homebound.  We apply the five love languages on each home visit and strive to go the 2nd mile. We are willing to provide spiritual encouragement and often pray with the families we serve.  We serve, rather than work.  We build up, rather than tear down.  We give, rather than take. We smile. We listen.  We love with our hearts.

Our staff do not come to work, but they come to serve. This fresh spirit of serving is maintained by limiting our private pay CARE services to 1-4 hours per day per family, allowing staff time to refresh and serve others.
