As a director of services for the aging, I come from a social work backtround. I am well aware that we often neglect the spiritual/emotional issues of older people. This book of prayers addresses those issues. I recommend it to social workers.
As a social worker, concerned with the whole person, we often bypass their spiritual needs. The medical model still prevails ... but this prayerbook speaks to the unique spiritual needs of older persons... for in late life prayer is at the center of life.
This is a gem of a book for older persons in nursing homes, homebound, or in retirement communities. It has over 200 prayers related to seven stages of aging, and timely, too. A wonderful gift for adult children to give to their parents or the church for older members.
Older persons and midlifers will find this an inestimiable help in finding strength and help for the seven stages of aging. Classic prayers of the centuries and the author's own prayers make this valuable prayerbook.
