Providing spiritual care is about tapping into the concept of spirituality: core meaning, connectedness and hope becomes more significant as older people are faced with the possibilities of frailty, disability and dementia.Spirituality, ageing and meaning in life can be discussed in the context of an alternative view of "successful ageing".A model of spiritual tasks in older age can help explain the spiritual dimension and provide a starting point for spiritual assessment.
