Being Curious Webinar: Home, an exploration of research into the meaning of home.
August 20, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 amFree – $20.00
Being Curious is a series of presentations from local SA and national initiatives who are curious about enhancing the lives of diverse populations in the community. This series will engage the listener with projects that will encourage you to get more curious. Once your curiosity is sparked, it will kindle further action to engage with these projects, connect older people from your service to them or even ignite your own ventures. This is an opportunity to find out more about grass roots ideas which aim to impact the lives of marginalised or vulnerable people by strengthening their capacities physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
Friday 20th August: Home, an exploration of research into the meaning of home.What makes home ‘home’? This presentation will discuss the meaning of home for older people from a spiritual perspective, according to findings of a recent research project as part of a Master’s degree. We will discuss why knowing what ‘home’ means is important for the care of older people in Australia today, what the research project entailed, what the findings were, and implications for practice. As part of the presentation, participants will be asked about their own experiences of home and what home means to them, so there will be an experiential component as well. The talk will cover:
- What makes home ‘home’?
- Our experiences of home and what home means to us
