Dying With Loving Words

BaptistCare’s annual Palliative Care in Aged Care Conference, held in May 2018, featured some of Australia’s most respected speakers, thinkers and practitioners in the field, sharing latest practices, innovative thinking and inspiration with conference guests.

The conference also included the launch of our new book, titled ‘Dying with Loving Words’, aimed at helping and equipping families and carers to connect and communicate with their loved ones.

The book, a collection of prayers, poems and reflections, was inspired by the experiences of care workers, chaplains and families who were looking for a single source of inspiration for the words to speak, the comfort to share and a means of expressing love during the most sacred and precious end of life.

At BaptistCare, we believe palliative care is much more than tasks to be accomplished; and is about recognising the precious value of time spent together.
