‘Yarning’: storytelling by Aboriginal People in residential care in rural South Australia of their spiritual and cultural needs

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Background/Aim: Spirituality and culture have been found to be important determinants of health for older people living in residential care. These determinants are especially important for Aboriginal residents whose cultural and spiritual well-being is strongly connected with divine beliefs, land and community. The research to date has revealed a dearth of literature providing information to residential aged care providers of the cultural and spiritual care needs of older Aboriginal people. This research went some way to address these deficiencies.
