More and more people are feeling more and more isolated and expecially so as they grow older..aged care chaplains all over the country are connecting with the lonely, sometimes forgotten individuals who live in thousands of aged care facilities around our states. There are different levels of support offered at different facilities but there are a few things that they all have in common: They are filled with people whom God loves and value;, they are filled with people who still want to make a meaningful impact with their lives; they are filled with individuals who crave connection and value being accepted and loved. This is where a chaplain can make such a difference – they offer support, they listen carefully, they help people find meaning and they encouarge them through difficult times of readjustment and illness.
A good chaplain can change the atmosphere of a facility and can bring great support to all the staff and volunteers as well.
Aged Care in Australia is a growth industry and is a great pathway to consider if you are thinking of becoming a chaplain. Contact us for more details…
