Below you will find various PDFs, specifically designed for nursing home residents, that you may print, copy and distribute for your church’s nursing home ministry. Large print Bibles are too bulky and heavy for many residents to handle, however sharing scriptures and prayers written out on a single page in large print is a great addition to a ministry’s service or a friendly visit. This allows residents to take them to their rooms for continued meditation and also aids in focus during Bible studies and worship services.
For those of you who want to create your own, we suggest you follow the same general formatting we use, as it seems to be effective. Offer a variety of formats and designs to help keep things interesting and limit the content to one page as residents can more easily understand and process bite sized portions of scripture. More detail on formatting handouts can be found in Chapter 11 of the book Nursing Home Ministry-Where Hidden Treasures Are Found.
