"This book is a good, brief introductory reference for an individual's use when interacting with the aged in many settings. It would be an appropriate reference text for visitation ministry participants. It is appropriate for personal, congregational, and academic libraries."--CSLA-Church and Synagogue Library Assoc., May June 2007
