Finishing Well: A Model for Pastoral Care in a Lifeplan Retirement Community
Richard C North
Hill View Retirement Center is a life-plan retirement community in Portsmouth, Ohio and will serve as the context. The purpose of the project is to design and implement a new model of spiritual life programming based on the principles of reminiscence and life review. It is believed that this approach will encourage and assist elderly persons in their journey toward the goal of finishing life well. Upon completion of the project, it will be implemented at Hill View as its pastoral care and spiritual life program. The design encourages continuing adaptation to the changing needs of residents at the Center.
