How do we look after ourselves and others better in the wake of a health crisis such as Covid-19? This Carer’s Guide series offers practical help and guidance to carers who find themselves needing to provide spiritual support to older people or others in residential care. The aim of these guides is to give you the confidence and skills to enable those in your care not only to cope emotionally and spiritually but even to thrive, despite challenging circumstances.

This guide helps you to listen carefully to someone, and honour that individual, and so make them feel special, unique – that’s spiritual care in a nutshell. Much of this you may already be doing instinctively, but it will help you to reflect on your own life as well.
