Description

Supporting Older People in the Transition to Aged 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.

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 Workshop will offer a range of practical skills to enable care staff to provide spiritual care to older people experiencing transition. Participants will be introduced to ConnecTo, a new tool for spiritual screening. We’ll explore what it is and how it works, and then use it for self-reflection. When we understand ourselves, we better understand others.

This event is proudly Supported by Prime Super
