About this Event

BaptistCare has partnered with the Aged Care Channel (ACC) to produce a series of eight programs, The Spiritual Care Series. This course allows volunteers, family and friends of older Australians to gain key practical knowledge to offer quality voluntary pastoral and spiritual care. Over 140 participants have completed this course and are now part of fourteen teams around NSW and the ACT, visiting people in their homes and aged care centres. The course has also enabled participants to strengthen pastoral care within their local Baptist churches.

The Spiritual Care Series: Topic Outline

Episode 1: Understanding the ageing journey

Episode 2: Spirituality in ageing

Episode 3: Good communication

Episode 4: The power of storytelling

Episode 5: Dementia

Episode 6: A new home and a new way of life

Episode 7: Grief, loss, death and dying

Episode 8: Roles, boundaries and self-care

Each episode involves a two hour session including thirty minutes of video content facilitated by Christian journalist Leigh Hatcher (pictured), with expert input from Prof John Swinton, Donna Barnard, Sarah Kinstead and Jean Ireland.

Facilitators will utilise the video content with participants engaged in practical exercises (in pairs and/or small group); personal reflection and out of session pre-reading.

The course is $35 per person, including a 180-page workbook.For more information visit https://baptistcare.org.au/get-involved/pastoral-care-volunteers/
