Pathways Church has been visiting Juniper Village Louisville for over a year now! Twice a month, the group visits Juniper to offer fellowship and fun. Led by Pastor Will Burger, the small but mighty group sings praise songs and chats with the elders on Sunday mornings to lift their spirits.
Elders and volunteers alike benefit from this interaction as they open their hearts to one another. Juniper Village Louisville serves elders with Alzheimer’s and other memory disorders, so the offering that Pathways members give is very important! Studies have shown that music can “evoke emotions that bring back memories” and “Music has the power to bring emotional and physical closeness.” in those living with dementia. Our friends at Juniper Village Louisville and the wonderful volunteers of Pathways Church are building bridges to keep each other connected and we appreciate them very much!
