At home with meaning

    Evaluation of an approach to improve (assistant) nurses’ knowledge, attitudes and skills in attuning to meaning in life of old clients.

    Publication date: 01 April 2015

    Homecare workers are confronted with situations and questions about meaning in life in their daily work with (their elderly clients, but they do not always know how to respond to those issues in an appropriate way. In this project, spiritual counsellors are introduced to coach (assistant) nurses in sensitivity and skills to attune to meaning in life of their clients. This study will evaluate the contribution of this approach to both care workers and their clients.
