The Spirited Project is a Whitley research project that serves to demonstrate the value of spiritual care as an aspect of holistic palliative and dementia care. Led by Whitley’s Principal Rev. Professor René Erwich and Dean of Research Darrell Jackson, the project team has had their first article published in Religions as part of the Special Issue ‘Spirituality and Aging: Finding Meaning in the Context of Personal and Societal Change’.
The article is titled ‘Equipping Families and Friends to Offer Spiritual Care to People Living with Dementia: Findings from a Meta-Synthesis’.
Of this milestone René says, “We are so proud to present the first result of our Spirited Project as we explore helpful tools for supporting families giving spiritual care to their relatives. We will keep you posted as we develop further and hope you will benefit from reading article!”
