RIGHTCARE is a team of Christian clergy, lay ministers, researchers, clinicians, emergency responders, and senior care professionals committed to supporting churches and their seniors as they navigate the challenges that come with aging.
Hundreds of dynamic and compassionate organizations and individuals help RIGHTCARE fulfill its mission. Join us as we strive forward in expanding services and meaningful support to keep pace with the needs of our growing senior community.
We help churches to address the needs of seniors and their adult children in ways that no one else can.
We lead applied research around the U.S. focused on the critical needs of seniors.
We support local churches with leading community based training, tools, and care programming.
We train healthcare organizations around the country (and Canada and Australia) in advanced best practice for seniors.
We personally work in our local churches to help our senior’s and their families.
We share Christ’s love through helping our senior’s and their families.
The RIGHTCARE ministry aligns the church, seniors, adult children, and community around a timeless message that mobilizes to love God and serve others. Every curriculum is always relevant, biblical, engaging and experiential. Because RIGHTCARE partners with 20+ denominations, you won’t find a denominational affiliation. Instead, the curriculum is customizable so you can adapt it to fit your unique denomination, context, and church. Plus, we offer personalized support through our RIGHTCARE specialists and training to help you use each powerful resource in your ministry. To learn more what we believe, read our Statement of Faith.

This question has many answers. It can depend on things like the size of the church, how much outreach you want to have to the local community you are in, the amount of volunteers you have, or if you already have full or part time staff serving seniors. The main answer to this question is if your church has decided it wants to have an effective and dynamic ministry for seniors and their adult children to deal with the challenges that can come with aging. We work with churches that have two part time volunteers all the way up to nine staff dedicated to senior ministry and pastoral care (and 60 volunteers).
The simple answer is no there is not. We do have minimum requirements for the individuals who will be getting trained, but not the quantity. If your church is going to be supported by RIGHTCARE and help seniors and their adult children, the more people trained/involved over time, the better.
We ask for a monthly donation for the ongoing support, training, and resources that will be committed to supporting your ministry efforts. Your church can decide the amount. In addition we partner with the church on how to share donations given to RIGHTCARE through any donate now button from their church in order to allow even more ministry and resources from the local church.
RIGHTCARE is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, funded by methodology licensing and donations from those concerned about the care and quality of life of our seniors in the US.
There is one, and only one, living and true God, existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is just, powerful, good, and holy. God is infinite in love. Through love, God creates, sustains, suffers, judges, rescues, liberates, redeems, reconciles, and reigns.
God became human in Jesus of Nazareth. Jesus was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended to the dead, and on the third day He rose again. He ascended into heaven, and will come again to judge the living and the dead. The death and resurrection of Jesus offers redemption for humanity and the world.
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, the fully divine Spirit of God, whose present activity is to guide, to convict, to comfort, to transform, and to strengthen. The Spirit bestows gifts, and cultivates the character and mind of Christ in believers for use in and through the Church.
About the Bible
The Holy Scripture was written under the divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is accurate, reliable, and authoritative. It is the primary authority for all Christian faith and practice. The Scripture reveals the character of God, the nature of humanity, and the primacy of Jesus.
All people are made in God’s image, and like God, have the capacity to love, to care, to communicate, and to create. Every person of every race, nationality, and gender possesses complete and equal dignity and as such is worthy of respect and love. All people have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. The fall of humanity distorted creation and separated all people from God. Because of the fall, humans often feel isolated, angry, inadequate, ashamed, or overwhelmed by the constant awareness that all is not as it should be.
About the Church
The Church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today. It includes the redeemed of all ages, races, genders, and nations. Because of Jesus, with the guidance of the Spirit, believers are invited to participate in the work of the Church. Jesus prayed for unity in the Church, and our Christian unity gives evidence of God to every generation.
Jesus, being fully God and fully human, was born, lived, died, and rose again. It is only through Christ Jesus that humanity can find complete forgiveness, reconciliation, and wholeness. Anyone who accepts the free gift of salvation made possible through Christ Jesus is welcome into the Kingdom of Heaven now and forever.
