Spirituality & Religion

The Third Age can be an especially contemplative one—a period of life when older adults may switch gears from focusing the day-to-day concerns of living, such as career and parenting, to contemplating the larger issues of life and pursuing a desire to give back. What part does spirituality play in mental health and well-being? What about its impact upon physical health? Where (and whom) do people turn to at the end of life and who is smoothing the way? What about caregivers: what can help them cope? Baby boomers may eschew religious houses of worship and other traditional spiritual paths and practices, but they’re known as seekers, so what will their Third Age portend, spiritually? ASA offers the latest thinking and an active constituency group, our Forum on Religion, Spirituality and Aging, providing thoughtful and provocative articles on this topic area.
