A spiritual perspective on being elderly.

At some point in our lives we all wonder, 'What does the future hold for me?' Some of us worry, 'Will I be able to cope when I am old?' Others are concerned about ageing relatives and ask, 'How can I look after them?' We all get older. Some of us worry about what old age will bring; others look forward to the new opportunities which will arise. Ageing considers the process of ageing and how it affects different individuals.

It looks particularly at:

  • the challenges of advancing age
  • the opportunities open to the aged
  • coping with stress
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • the spiritual dimension and explodes some of the myths about the process of ageing and being old.
