The Deacons maintain a list of individuals who have been members of the church or associated with the church and are now in a nursing home facility or house bound.  A Deacon is assigned an individual so that personalized visits and relationships can be maintained.  Additionally if there is a hospitalization or a recovery at home, Deacons are happy to visit and provide any service you may need.  (run an errand, pick up medicine, take you to a doctor's visit, etc)
