We focus on improving the lives of frail and elderly adults with expanded awareness of their potential. We renew joy for memory-impaired patients and their families by finding new purpose. We empower seniors to discover their spiritual greatness.
We work to reframe the understanding of the great fullness of life that is spiritual. For in that spirituality lays happiness, purpose and meaning. The best life is lived by balancing the material and the spiritual.
Old age is a gift to help us see ourselves more clearly not only as a physical doing but also as a spiritual being. If we can value people for how they can be in addition to what they can do, then we can help relieve the suffering of old age and redeem our own futures.
We need a paradigm shift in the way we see ourselves and each other.
We need to reframe our understanding of the great fullness of life that is spiritual.
