Ministry of Care - Healthy Aging, Elder Support and Dementia Care

 


Grieving being a common occurrence among the elderly (deceased relatives and friends, poor health, loss of home and autonomy, such as a driver’s license), the goal is to help the elderly, with respect and compassion, to maintain or recover a positive attitude toward aging. Spiritual needs are tied in with the essence of the person and its raison d’être. Like everyone else, the elderly are searching for the meaning of life and a sense of belonging to a community that shares their fundamental values. They also seek to connect with a transcendent Being so as to make sense of their suffering and grief.
