How can you foster spiritual growth in older people?

This multidisciplinary work re-examines issues of aging with dignity and spiritual meaning. Aging, Spirituality, and Pastoral Care: A Multi-National Perspective brings together chaplains, pastors, counselors, and health care practitioners in all walks of gerontology from around the world to present a fully rounded picture of the spiritual needs and potentialities of this fast-growing population. It also includes a study of the spiritual awareness of nurses working in six different nursing homes, as well as a model for a parish nursing practice that focuses on the aged.

Aging, Spirituality, and Pastoral Care addresses urgent issues for older people, including:
  • social and spiritual isolation
  • the wisdom of the aging
  • the need for intimacy
  • sexuality among older people
  • living with dementia
  • the spiritual dimensions of caregiving
