Elderly Care

Finding spiritual meaning in life

The dignity of elderly people and possibilities of giving meaning to their lives is another area of Anthroposophical work. Elderly people make up a growing percentage of the population. Existential questions concerning dying and death are challenges for the spirituality of modern society. Increasingly, life crises are seen as new opportunities to work on our past and future destiny. Growing old and dying in dignity is a central concern of Anthroposophy, and interdisciplinary research is conducted in this field.
