Personhood and an aging mind and body

kavanaughImageHere is a provocative and thoughtful essay by Peter Kavanaugh, who serves as a chaplain to the fragile elderly at an assisted living home. Kavanaugh offers a Christian Orthodox approach to thinking about (and acting on) the influence of spirituality on health in the later years. He is particularly sensitive to the concerns–and humanity–of those who suffer with progressive debilitating memory loss. The paper was originally presented at the November 2014 conference of the Orthodox Christian Association of Medicine, Psychology and Religion.
