The Heart of Care Workshop
This highly interactive thought provoking workshop combines anecdotes, readings, poems, life stories, practical advice and innovative exercises from Amanda’s first book, The Heart of Care. This training helps us to “conceptualise” person centred care that encompasses dignity, compassion and respect, reminding us to SEE the individual inside, and FEEL what they feel. Amanda provides a unique and unforgettable experience that will undoubtedly transform attitudes.
End of Life Workshop
We will explore the power of communication, the ability to be with those who are dying, to honour them through music, song, silence and touch, so we may enhance the lives of not only those we are caring for, but of ourselves as well. We will look at regrets, forgiveness, and gratitude, and explore grief and the sensitive support of the relatives during this time.
The Angel Carer Workshop
This workshop promotes the virtues needed at a time of anxiety, fear, or when facing death, allowing carers to understand the importance of neither being above, below or separated, but being with and alongside those we care for. It provides the emotional medicine on how to calm the spirit when questions cant be answered.
Spirituality and Care Workshop
This workshop addresses the spiritual and emotional needs of staff, residents and relatives and how to embody compassion and enable communication around spiritual needs.
