Description - Ageing, Spirituality and Well-being by Malcolm Goldsmith
How can we promote the enduring well-being of those who are moving into the "fourth" age of life? This volume explores how well-being is not about physical health alone (having purpose in life and continual spiritual growth are vital elements for older people) and it guides as to how the particular spiritual needs of this age group can be addressed, and how meaningful care and support can be given. The contributors use their expertise in the fields of medicine, theology and the social sciences to explore ways of overcoming obstacles and finding a balance when dealing with the inner, and inextricably linked outer, lives of elders, including those with dementia or who have had strokes.
