Meet Akira interactive learning

World leading Interactive Learning Experience for Personal Care Assistants & Home Care Workers

Meet Akira is a world leading interactive story inviting users to learn about spiritual care by engaging in familiar scenarios, by following the daily journey of Akira, a Personal Care Assistant, working with older people. As they share Akira’s story, they will learn that:

  • Spiritual care is more than religious care
  • Your work already includes acts of spiritual care, that you may not be aware of
  • Spiritual care can enrich your own sense of professional value

In accessing Akira’s story through a smart-device or desktop computer, the learner will see familiar scenarios presented which allow them to learn through the character’s experiences. By understanding their role within the story, they will also gain an understanding of spiritual care which is natural and easy. It will become easy to see that small gestures can have a big impact, and that they will be able to notice the things they do naturally as being important aspects of spiritual care. 

Implementation

Thinking about implementation? Watch the following examples of the impact of implementing Meet Akira in aged care.

Alternatively, for member organisations we can supply you with a custom link that you can text or email to your staff as well as additional implementation assets, such as posters and post learning evaluation.
