This item is a print on demand title and will be dispatched in 1-3 weeks.
This book addresses the fact that, despite the inevitability of aging, the vast majority of us are ill-prepared for eldercare. Eldercare as Art and Ministry broadens and deepens an understanding of eldercare as an art and as a ministry. As art, eldercare requires creativity, imagination, and perseverance. Here, ministry is considered in its fullest meaning, to include guiding, administering, serving, waiting upon, or acting as a loved one's agent. Through stories, lessons, and poignant vignettes, Jackson-Brown calls each one of us-whether young or older, ordained or laity, fortunate or less fortunate, prepared or not-to serve and care for an aging loved one. For lay people and professionals, this book is a guide to navigate the challenges of eldercare and to find meaning in this important work.
