Marlette B. Reed
Marlette B. Reed, BEd, MA, is a community chaplain in Calgary, AB. Her expertise lies in pastoral care, including almost a decade in palliative care chaplaincy. She also teaches sessionally at a couple of post-secondary institutions in Calgary. Marlette & Annette have co-authored the book: "Making Meaning in Older Age". Making meaning in life can be challenging at any age. However, making and sustaining meaning in advancing age can be especially difficult due to physiological changes, declining health, and multiple losses. From years of personal and professional experience, and with much warmth, the authors address the multifaceted nature of meaning and offer practical ways in which older adults can find and sustain meaning despite the transitions experienced with advancing age. They also offer ways in which family members can help their aging loved ones in their journey of meaning-making. Bringing together the pieces of one’s life through meaning-making is vital for older adults and offers a precious gift for their loved ones! www.makingmeaningintransitions.com
