Product Description
This book addresses the fact that, despite the inevitability of aging, the vast majority of us are ill-prepared for eldercare. To paraphrase former first lady Rosalyn Carter's wise words: "There are only four kinds of people in the world -- one, people who have been a caregiver; two, people who are a caregiver; three, people who will be a caregiver; and four, people who will need care. Eldercare as Art and Ministry understands this specific kind of caregiving as a special kind of ministry. With growing awareness of the benefits of end-of-life planning and care, hospice and palliative care, and attention to pre-need funeral planning, the time is ripe for supportive and informative reading. This book broadens and deepens an understanding of eldercare as an art to which we are all called, young and old, ordained or lay, with caregiving vignettes and insights throughout.
