Embracing Faith and Fellowship in a Christian Senior Living Community

CRISTA Senior Living Blog - Senior Praying

Senior residents at Cristwood in Shoreline and Crista Shores in Silverdale live in our Christian senior living community because it provides exceptional care and spiritual enrichment.

There is no requirement for residents at CRISTA Senior Living to be of the Christian faith, but each staff member is required to be a committed Christian with a call to serve seniors with Christ’s love. As such, staff regularly support one another in prayer and mission, caring for residents with compassion and the love of Christ.

The Benefits of a Christian Senior Community

Roy Chapel researched thoroughly before choosing CRISTA Senior Living and moving his parents from Spokane to Shoreline to live there.

“I had read in a book that a faith-based senior living situation would provide, on average, a better experience,” Roy said.

CRISTA Senior Living provided such an excellent experience for his parents that when it came time for Ray and his wife to move into a senior living community, they also chose to live here. As with his mother, he found “friendships were made easier because of like-minded people with similar values.”

The CRISTA Difference

As a Christian senior living community, Cristwood and Crista Shores provide the following:

  • A chaplain for the community.
  • A variety of Bible studies, worship services, and prayer groups that provide residents with ample opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship.
  • Someone to pray with ‘right outside your door’ — many residents have told us they are comforted by knowing they can easily turn to a neighbor or staff member for prayer when they need it.
  • Purposeful ministry and volunteer work at other CRISTA Ministries in Shoreline and within the communities. Residents are encouraged to lead small groups, hymn-sings, participate in chapel services, and be trained as lay chaplains to minister to one another.
  • Staff who are committed Christians and are passionate about serving seniors in a way that embodies Christian values in their work. With a focus on compassion, respect, and dignity, the staff at both communities strive to create a loving and supportive atmosphere for residents.

For seniors seeking a Christian senior living community that aligns with their values and spiritual beliefs, Cristwood and Crista Shores communities are ideal choices. With a focus on spiritual enrichment, quality care, and community engagement, these communities provide seniors with a fulfilling and purposeful retirement experience.

What People Are Saying …

I would like to commend Cristwood Park staff on their efforts to protect themselves and their residents from COVID. It’s been a concern of ours since last March and we have been relieved to see so few cases in the Cristwood Park community. I would like to thank the staff and leadership for their diligence in maintaining good protocols throughout this pandemic.
