Written out of Sue's own experience as a chaplain to a residential care community, this book is suitable for ministers who visit older people; chaplains, pastoral visitors and care givers; and all who help train others in pastoral care. Part 1 explores the key theological elements of ministry with the aged. Part 2 provides simple service outlines for 'reconnecting with old treasures'. Parts 3 and 4 offer imaginative ideas for pastoral practices and spiritual activities using pray, song, laughter, memory, touch and more to address questions of loss, letting go, forgiveness, dying and resurrection. A CD-ROM is included with downloadable content.
