Older adults are a diverse cohort with a wide array of capacities, interests, and needs. Despite the fact that aging is a highly individualized and complex process, it continues to be stereotyped, especially in Western cultures. Any stereotype-positive or negative-fails to acknowledge the diversity of individuals within the group and can be used to justify social oppression and prejudice. All too o-ften, older adults are viewed as a burden on society rather than celebrated for the incredible gifts and talents, which they have to offer.
Written from a Christian perspective, this book provides insight into the spiritual needs and religious practices of older adults. The author’s positive faith construct provides the lens through which to look beyond social stereotypes and, thereby, to positively influence the health, well-being and quality of life of older adults.
