‘As spirituality is integral to quality of life and well-being, it should be accessible to all older people in way that is meaningful to their beliefs, culture and circumstances.

The National Guidelines for Spiritual Care in Aged Care (2016) Meaningful Ageing Australia

Typical scope assessed

Effective spiritual care is more often achieved through a whole-of-organisation approach. Spiritual care is best reflected in key systems and processes that embed the principles and outcomes within a model of care. A key success factor for implementation of the Guidelines is the active engagement of those in leadership roles at all levels. This starts with the governing body and flows through to senior executives, program managers and team leaders on the floor. Integrating spiritual care into key human resource practices is more likely to ‘hard-wire’ a focus on emotional wellbeing and spirituality throughout the organisation.
