  • 4. Challenges with ageing “There was no respect for youth when I was young and now that I am old, there is no respect for age – I missed it coming and going”. J.B Priestly • Western culture values people for what they can produce, do, create or possess • Desire to stay „young‟ forever • Stereotyping

  • 7. People are physical, psychological/social, spiritual beings Older people need holistic care and emotional support as well as assistance with activities of daily living.
  • 8. Reflection Questions How would you define spirituality? How do you express your spirituality in everyday life? What do you believe in? What gives life meaning?
  • 9. Spirituality Personal quest for understanding and seeking answers to ultimate questions about: • Life • Meaning • Relationship to the sacred or transcendent
  • 10. Religion System of beliefs, practices, rituals & symbols designed to: • Facilitate closeness to the sacred or transcendent • Foster an understanding of one‟s relationship & responsibility to others in community
  • 11. Religion Religion and spirituality SpiritualityReligion

  • 20. Goals How do you practice your spirituality? How can we support you in this? Is anything particularly frightening/meaningful to you now?
  • 21. Care & support planning Beware! There is a very real danger of spiritual care planning becoming too clinical – it is not a medical document! • Spiritual care supports well-being rather than highlighting what is lacking • Spiritual care is provided through caring people being „fully present‟ with the older person in all aspects of their care needs
  • 22. What does a spiritual plan look like? A spiritual plan should support residents in re-establishing a commitment to seeking spiritual growth. 1. What are their needs? 2. What are the goals of the plan ? 3. What is the action plan to achieve goals? 4. Evaluate the plan to see if it is achieving the stated goals

  • 24. Provide down time for reflection Understand the value of ritual The benefit of small groups
  • 25. My Stories
  • 26. Blessing “That we come to understand that it is the quality of what we think and say that makes us valuable members of society, not how fast or busy we are. Being able to live so open-heartedly and to adjust so well, that others can look to us and see what being old can bring in terms of life, holiness and goodness to make the world new again” Joan Chittester
