The Spiritual Care Series is an 8-part course designed to equip health professionals and volunteers with the skills necessary to help older people discover pathways to meaningful aging. 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 aging process, to practical techniques for re-connecting people with their pasts, and coping with the losses that come with the aging journey.
