Spiritual caregivers from across the long-term care, retirement and acute care sectors came together at Conrad Grebel University College for a two-day retreat hosted in part by the RIA.
This guide is a user-friendly resource to help team members in retirement and long-term care homes understand the traditions and practices of six major religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.
The guide provides a short description of each religion and its major beliefs, including a summary of holidays and holy days, as well as practical tips about caring for residents when they are sick or nearing the end of life. Prayers that are generally accepted within each religion are also included.
