Aging as a way of life means constantly having to give answers to the simultaneity of increasing freedom and increasing dependency in one's own life choices. From the perspective of sociology, philosophy, geriatric psychology and theology, this volume examines guidance for Protestant social welfare organizations who give support to those who are aging.
