Spiritual Life

“We welcome residents of all faiths.”

The Cliffs at Eagle Rock is a premier Assisted Living Residence serving the needs of the elderly to the highest standards and believes that people thrive best when souls as well as bodies are nourished. At The Cliffs, we provide many opportunities for spiritual sustenance: “We believe in serving each resident as a unique individual who has been created in the image of God and therefore is worthy of receiving genuine respect and dignity throughout the aging process.” (excerpt from the Mission Statement)

The Cliffs provides many opportunities for our Residents to become involved in spiritual sustenance. Below is a sampling of our activities that nurture the hearts and spirits of Cliff’s Residents:
