Handling later life well

Updated: Aug 6


How to handle the changes of later years with hope and dignity.

Southampton's Anna Chaplaincy team – through the charity Caraway – are behind a new interactive online course on ageing well. Erica Roberts writes:



For all of us life is a journey. From the womb to the tomb, we journey through life creating relationships, forging memories and amassing possessions. The Bible says:


I will be your God throughout your lifetime – until your hair is white with age. I made you, and I will care for you. I will carry you along and save you. Isaiah 46:4 (NLT)

For each one of us, to continue to have a purpose and bear fruit is really important. This course is designed to help us focus on the home straight and enable us to finish well.

Join a weekly five-session, interactive course on Zoom.

What does it mean to grow old?

How can I embrace the increasing changes in later life?

What do I have to look forward to?

What would I like on my tombstone?

What will be my legacy?
