Spiritual Care Series Workshop
Spiritual Care Series is an eight-part course designed to equip health professionals and volunteers with the skills necessary to help older people discover pathways to meaningful ageing.
Built upon the realization that while physical and mental health are essential to a person’s well-being, it is not enough. True, holistic care means understanding and supplying their spiritual needs as well.
Spiritual Care Series provides participants with everything from a realistic understanding of the ageing process, to practical techniques for re-connecting people with their pasts, and coping with the losses that come with the ageing journey.
*All participants will be provided a participant’s guide in digital format unless a physical one is requested (additional cost applies). The deadline for ordering a physical guide is September 15th, 2021.
**COVID-19 policy: in the interest of public health, and the health of our residents, this event adheres to the most recent guidelines and mandates set forth by the BC Ministry of Health. This includes physical distancing and the uses of face-coverings while indoors.
