“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)
