Item description for Caring for the Sick and Elderly: A Parish Guide by Marie Roccapriore...

Overview
By sharing time with the sick and the elderly---extending a compassionate hand, a prayerful heart, loving eyes, and sensitive ears---other people can bring to them the face of the healing Christ and help to make a significant difference in their lives. This book highlights the various ways pastoral care ministers and parish volunteers can reach out to the sick and elderly. There are a wealth of ideas here for extending spiritual, sacramental, and charitable support to parishioners who are homebound, in nursing homes, or in hospitals. For many years, Sr. Marie Roccapriore has been involved with a parish program called Project H.E.A.L.---Homebound are Encouraged through Assistance in Love. The details of this program are provided in this book, along with forms and other reproducible information that will be useful in developing this type of program in one's own parish. Also included is an extensive listing of resources that are invaluable for ministry with the sick and elderly. Personal examples and anecdotes help illustrate the ways that even the simplest gestures of care and cocern can make a world of difference in the lives of the infirm.
