In Europe and the Western world there are many elderly people, many of whom are placed into a care home when they can no longer look after themselves and their families cannot either.
Unfortunately, there is a growing trend among many people. That is, to put their loved ones in senior citizen housing and rarely visit them. As a result, this leaves many elderly people feeling unwanted and depressed. Along with the fact that they can no longer do simple things like cook a meal.
On January 15, 2017, the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) in Manchester UK, started the year off with love for their fellow man. And in doing so, they did voluntary performances for 2 care homes in Salford, Holly Court and Labernum Court.
For many years now the WMSCOG in Manchester have been voluntarily performing in care homes throughout Manchester. Many members are always thrilled when they hear they are able to offer their volunteering services. Since they are able to share love with so many people they feel a sense of accomplishment. Therefore the members practice their performances, such are cello, short-plays, piano, singing and dancing, for a long time working together in unity.
Sharing Love with Care Home Residents
January 15, 2017 the members gathered early in the morning and put on their costumes, such as Pikachu, Tigger and Kung Fu panda. Then they packed up in their cars and drove to the care homes, singing new songs with joy.
