Moberg, David O.; And Others
This paper on Spiritual Well-Being provides information for leaders concerned with the problems of older people. The first four sections of the paper discuss: the need for religious organizations and society to develop and promote services and programs that will contribute to the spiritual needs of the elderly; goals proposed by previous groups and conferences; information on knowledge available in this area; and vital gaps in meeting such needs. The fifth section identifies several major issues relevant to the spiritual well-being of older people. The purpose of the issues is to focus discussion on the development of recommendations toward the adoption of national policies. A bibliography is provided. (Author/DB)
