With the implementation of the Aged Care Quality Standards in 2019, residential and community aged care providers are faced with the need to integrate spiritual care. This may bring challenges to various organisations requiring not just new practices, but potentially a change of processes and culture. Change management may well be an avenue for such organisations to explore.

“This has really opened things up for me. We tend to focus on the day to day issues to ensure a high level of care to our clients when it is just so much more! I will definitely be listening with an open heart and new eyes. Anyone working in the aged care industry – regardless of what position – would benefit from this I am sure” (Trial participant)
“May I congratulate you on this Learning Package. It is clear, helpful and the definitions of Spirituality, Religion and finding meaning are really helpful. This is a great asset for all staff in their various roles, as together we seek to meet the spiritual needs of clients and residents.” (Pastoral Practitioner)
Meet Akira: a digital resource for Personal Care Assistants working in aged careAUD $0.00
Free for members
Meet Akira is an 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 PCAs share Akira’s story, they will learn that:
- Spiritual care is more than religious care
- Their work already includes acts of spiritual care, that they may not be aware of
- Spiritual care can enrich their own sense of professional value.
Learn more at our ‘sneak peak’ events in July. Meet Akira will be available for a full live preview at our member forum on 3 September, and release to all members after the launch at our AGM in November.
