Training - Care Home Staff

Resident Singing
Residents enjoy singing the old hymns

This training session is intended to supplement compulsory training for the staff of Care Homes, by looking at the spiritual needs of residents. It is designed to last about two and a half hours, with a short break for tea/coffee.

While the tutor should be familiar with the Home environment, it is also an opportunity for mutual sharing of some of the difficulties presented in caring for elderly people. The programme includes:

  • Exploring and explaining spirituality
  • Defining spiritual needs
  • Looking at bereavement (all forms of loss)
  • Helping carers to:
             Meet spiritual needs in everyday life
             Bring spiritual comfort in one-to-one situations
             Sensitively prepare residents for death.

A list of resources available.
