Friends from throughout New York Yearly Meeting offer practical and spiritual/pastoral care to older people and differently-abled adults. Join in this vibrant ministry!
Training sessions will be held via Zoom video conferencing over the course of 7 weekly sessions 1.5 hours each, at a time to be determined by mutual agreement. Topics will include -developmental issues in later life-worshipful listening-housing considerations-disability-loss & grief-working with caregivers-copious resources-boundaries & self care--and much more
Additional reading, projects, and exercises may take additional time between sessions.
This is an opportunity to renew, reflect on, and deepen your ministry of care, and to become a part of a vibrant and supportive network of Friends who share your ministry.
