From their website:
As we age, and especially as we become frailer and face death, spiritual issues – about the meaning and purpose of our lives – begin to loom large. Yet spirituality can be neglected in health and aged care despite its importance – perhaps because people often feel ill-equipped to discuss this sensitive topic.
This one-day conference is an opportunity to hear New Zealand researchers and others with an academic interest in the area speak about ageing and spirituality. The price has been set to allow retired people, pastoral caregivers and residential aged care staff to attend.
