Overview

If asked, almost all seniors will say they don't want their last home to be a nursing home. But for those who do live in a care facility, the responsibility to energize them falls primarily to the staff.

Rabbi James R. Michaels and Rabbi Cary Kozberg, the editors of Flourishing In The Later Years: Jewish Pastoral Insights On Senior Residential Care, provide insights on senior residential care from Jewish and non-Jewish clinical care professionals.

They share their wisdom on a variety of topics from a Jewish perspective to assist and guide team members responsible for the care of the residents living in their facility.

While the focus of the book is pastoral counseling in senior residential care, its psycho-social insights into the very core of what it means to be old in our culture - whether in or out of a care facility; whether Jew or non-Jew - are invaluable.

This book will be of considerable assistance to those of any spiritual background who interact with elders and to all of us as we continue along the "incredible adventure" of our own aging, making our own "voyage of discovery" into that unknown country.
