Today’s Front Line Hero is Lutheran Services Carolinas, which held Father’s Day celebrations at its senior care communities.
Lutheran Services Carolinas (LSC) is motivated by Christian faith to walk together with all people it serves. One of the many services it provides is senior living facilities across North Carolina, including independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing care, memory care, and rehabilitation services.
On Sunday, June 21, LSC’s senior living communities celebrated Father’s Day. Staff at the communities posted videos with messages from residents’ families, wishing them a happy Father’s Day. The staff and residents also spoke about what being a father means to them, and posted the videos on social media. For example, Trinity Oaks resident, John McWhorter, was interviewed, and he reflected on being a father, saying that to him, it was about molding a life and seeing another soul grow and develop. Chaplain Paul Myers at Trinity Village says for him, being a father allows the opportunity to pass on the love that he received when he was growing up to the next generation.
Family members sent loving cards and videos to their dads at LSC senior living communities. The communities also celebrated on Sunday with cards from the staff, doughnuts and coffee at Trinity Glen, and breakfast biscuits at Trinity Place.
Thank you to the dedicated Lutheran Services Carolinas staff at senior living communities who celebrated fathers on Sunday, and reminded them that they are loved!
