Jehovah’s Witness Retirement Homes and Senior Care
While cost and location are usually at the top of the list of deciding factors for senior care, religious beliefs are also at the core for many seniors. In order to support the diverse population of aging seniors, different types of care centers that adhere to a certain belief system are also gaining in popularity. Jehovah's Witnesses are now seeing senior care centers specifically associated with their beliefs, but these centers are fewer in number than other religious based senior care centers seeing that research shows Jehovah's Witnesses only make up less than 1% of the adult U.S. population.
What is Jehovah's Witness Senior Care?
Seniors who are Jehovah's Witnesses can receive the same medical care they need while their religious beliefs are supported. These care centers are often staffed by other Jehovah's Witnesses who share the same thoughts in regards to faith. In the past, many Jehovah Witnesses have not been able to find senior care that is also in line with their beliefs. Jehovah's Witness senior care facilities are beginning to open in parts of the country have to fill that gap.
What Services do Jehovah's Witness Senior Living Facilities Offer?
The majority of Jehovah's Witness senior care facilities were created by Jehovah's Witnesses for Jehovah's Witnesses, so usually they only accept those who share their religion. Jehovah's Witnesses have a specific set of rules and regulations that make up their beliefs. Jehovah's Witness senior care facilities are rather new, so if you were interested in receiving care at one it would be best to contact that specific center to see their rules and regulations.
Jehovah's Witness senior care facilities also have spiritual activities that are specific to their faith. Although these can differ, they can include:
Daily Bible readings
Weekly family worship night
Transportation to assemblies
Regular field service (depending on medical condition)
Jehovah's Witness senior care facilities aim to provide residents with the same activities fellow Jehovah's Witness members take part in while offering them the care they need.
Who Operates Jehovah's Witness Senior Care Facilities?
Jehovah's Witnesses run these facilities for seniors who share their faith. Although they are rather new, more and more are beginning to surface around the country. Many of these facilities have an association to the Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses.
How Much Does Jehovah's Witness Senior Care Cost?
As with any type of senior care, the cost is often determined on the level care and on the specific facility. The range for senior care at Jehovah's Witness facilities can be anywhere from $3,000 a month to nearly $5,000 a month. The price is contingent on the type of room as well as care. For example, rooms for patients needing memory care (dementia and Alzheimer’s patients) can run in the $4,000-$5,000 a month range.
Paying for Jehovah's Witness Senior Care
If you are on Medicaid you would need to see what your state regulations are seeing that considerations are made state by state.

Some facilities also offer financial aid that you would have to apply for.
