Serving Seniors Through Technology
The Elder Source App
After nearly a year in planning the FREE Elder Source App has now launched! Our new app will allow us to reach an untold number of seniors in care communities, with the addition of those served through companies focusing on skilled home health, custodial and personal home care, hospice, as well as churches, and families. Our app (for smart phones and tablets for both Android and iOS platforms) will become the largest depository of Christian materials available for seniors.
I cannot think of a time in the history of this ministry where we have had the opportunity to impact lives as we do now because of the app. Help us the spread the word. We are hoping for 1,000 downloads in the first 12 months, and we need financial supporters and partners so we can continue impacting lives for now and eternity.
Our mission is to inspire seniors to live with purpose by honoring God in their latter years.
In the United States, approximately 10,000 Baby Boomers are turning 65 every day. This means the population of Americans aged 65 and over will jump from 35 million to 71.5 million between the years 2010 and 2030. The number of men and women 85 and older will increase by over 70 percent! This trend has enormous implications for every segment of our society, including the church. That’s why we must begin now to prepare for what many Christian leaders are calling one of the fastest growing mission fields in history.
Elder Source Senior Ministries exists to facilitate senior ministry by distributing senior-friendly Christian resources to senior care centers, creating opportunities that encourage and edify seniors to be productive and spiritually fertile, while building partnerships with like-minded organizations, churches, and individuals that will value and honor seniors.
