    Health and social care practitioners are increasingly called upon to provide care to elderly people from a number of different faiths and cultures. This collection of essays examines ageing in the context of the many faiths and cultures that make up Western society, and provides carers with the knowledge they need to deliver sensitive and appropriate care to people of all faiths.

    Elizabeth MacKinlay, an Anglican priest, is Director of the Centre for Aging and Pastoral Studies in Canberra, Australia, and Chair of the Australian Capital Territory Ministerial Advisory Council on Aging. She is Associate Professor at the Charles Sturt University School of Theology. She won the 2006 Australasian Journal on Aging (AJA) Book Award for Spiritual Growth and Care in the Fourth Age of Life, also published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
