Conference (Webinar) 29 September 2021
OLD AND CHRISTIAN: what do you think about these?
Prison when you are old
Music as therapy in dementia
Dying, death and assisted dying
10.15 am to 4 pm
The day will include:
- Back Door Parole. We will be treated to extracts from this play produced and presented by Journeyman Theatre Company. It deals with issues affecting older men in prison with disabilities, illness and facing death. There will be a chance to explore the topic with Lynn Morris of the Company.
- Music as therapy in dementia. The most-feared illness, other than covid-19, amongst the 0ver-50s is dementia. Kathryn Rowland from ‘All in Sound’ and Barbara Stephens from ‘Dementia Pathfinders’ will demonstrate music’s power to help.
- End of life issues. The pandemic has caused a wider contemplation of life, death and the experience of dying. Graham Hawley, a retired Methodist minister, and James Woodward, Principal of Sarum College will address the issues.
The day will conclude with an opportunity to tell Christians on Ageing about local initiatives and to encourage our growing and responsive ecumenical organisation to take up new challenges. This conference will help us to plan new ways of giving support, spreading ideas and promoting good practice.
