Elders and Ministry: A Report for the Anglican Church of Canada
P.J. Kemp was a journalist living in Brigham, Quebec.
Elders’ and Ministry is a report prepared for the Anglican Church exploring the current problems of being old. The issues outlined include, among others, stereotyping; living on diminished or fixed incomes; lack of adequate housing, health care, or transportation; dependence on indifferent or abusive family or workers in elderly care; deteriorating health; and loneliness.
Elders’ and Ministry makes various recommendations to government, private, and particularly church sectors on how to alleviate and deal with these problems. As well as including a bibliography, the book lists resources, organizations concerned with aging, films, and notes on how to conduct discussion groups and role playing.
