Whether a pastoral associate, secretary, hospital chaplain or priest, you need to send parishioners out to visit an elder parishioner who cannot come to church. But you also want your ministers of care - who are full of love and vigour - to be prepared, confident, and knowledgeable of what to expect when carrying out this important outreach. This short booklet is a resource you can give to ministers of care to instruct them on how to visit the elderly and/or sick in hospitals or homes. In it, they will find practical-based ABCs of visiting with suggested prayers, and very straightforward advice what to say or not say, and how to act. A page at the end is adaptable for writing down important local information, such as local phone numbers, agencies for referral.Linda Dayler
