Quaker Aging Resources Website

QAR-Quilt-LogoNew York and Philadelphia Yearly Meetings of Friends (Quakers), through generous funding from Friends Foundation for the Aging and the Thomas Scattergood Foundation, collaborated to develop Quaker Aging Resources, a website providing spirit-center resources for PYM Friends on issues of Aging.

The project was designed to assist Meetings and individuals in responding to the needs of aging Friends including age related changes, chronic illness or disability.The resources are intended to uphold a culture of care for the body, mind, spirit and community of the individual which is consistent with our Quaker faith.

The Yearly Meeting also has a library of materials and programs available for Meetings and individuals in their geographic region. The resources are designed to support Friends’ aging with particular attention to spirituality, supporting a discernment process and offering concrete and specific information on aging
