From the Paper:

"This is also the stage of one's life that a person contemplates the purpose of one's life and the implications of one's actions. Thus, spiritual support becomes essential to many individuals. Programs that support the spiritual needs are initiated by religious affiliations but community and social support can enhance the access to these channels. Some religious groups sponsor recreation centers and support groups for their members to ensure their access to spiritual services (Caring for the Elderly)."
