Pastoral Care

Your primary role as a Pastoral Carer is to provide spiritual and emotional support to older persons in your community. You might work in a residential aged care home, retirement village, or visit with Anglicare At Home clients who still live independently at home. As you build relationships with those you serve, their care workers and their families, you’ll learn to personalise the support your offer according to each individuals needs and preferences.
