Description

Supporting Older People in the Transition to Care

The move into care, whether residential aged care or community care, can be a challenging experience for many older adults. Care may be necessitated by changes in health status, diminishing physical or mental capacity, and may be accompanied by a shift in identity, sense of purpose and loss of hope. Research shows that the transition is often linked with depression.

Central to each person’s identity is their spirituality.

How can we support older people to navigate this transition? How can we skilfully facilitate life review at this time? How can we companion older people in meaning-making, assisting them to connect with what is most important to them?

This seminar will deepen understanding of older peoples’ experiences of the transition and offer a range of practical skills to enable staff to provide spiritual care to older people at this critical time. Participants will reflect on their current practices, share with each other what works and leave with practical ideas to build on their successes.
