Would you find it useful to have a non-judgemental space to talk?
Would it help to offload some of the emotional and isolating impact of the current situation?
Edinburgh-based charity, Faith in Older People, is focusing on the needs of hard-pressed care staff working with older people by encouraging them to sign up for free sessions.
Faith in Older People is dedicated to enabling a better understanding of the importance of the spiritual dimension to the well-being, particularly of older people in a variety of ways.
You may also be interested in their online course, Spiritual Care Matters. It is an online learning course designed to promote, recognise, respect and support the spiritual well-being of older people.
The course is an introduction to spiritual care, exploring how spiritual care is defined, what it means in practice and why it matters.
