Anthroposophic medicine recognizes the individuality of each human being, a philosophy that is essential to caring for the elderly if we consider it important to see beyond the outer signs of th ageing body and ensure dignity for everyone.

Anthroposophical Care for the Elderly describes specific approaches for professional nurses and caregivers and offers practical care plans. While care cannot itself heal, it can provide a foundation for the healing process to work. This book will help those who work with the elderly with invaluable guidance and advice.
