Heart to Heart Care for Elders

The essence of Heart to Heart Care is compassionate presence. This training seeks to help participants open their hearts to a deeper understanding of the physical, emotional and spiritual issues surrounding individuals as they age. Through experiential exercises and shared experiences, the training encourages participants to be a mindful presence with intentional touch. The fundamental aspects of compassionate touch  are taught through lecture, video, and demonstration. 


This training is appropriate for anyone who is part of the care team for elders.
