Compassionate Touch

Dauphin County

May 21, 2018

Description: In partnership with Age-u-cate Training Institute, we are proud to now have the expertise to incorporate Compassionate Touch in our care to create a more positive environment for those we serve.

This training is a holistic approach that combines skilled touch with compassionate presence to enhance quality of life for those in the later stages of life. Designed to ease physical, behavioral and emotional distress, the approach provides symptom relief and comfort resulting in greater well-being and quality of life. And with a focus on empowering care-partners, it emphasizes giving both professional and family caregivers a way to connect with, calm and comfort. 

Compassionate Touch combines specialized techniques - focused - gentle skilled touch of the hands, back and feet - with the qualities of compassionate presence, the art of being - with the person, rather than the disease or condition.

Our Compassionate Touch program beings together the world of medical technology and treatment with the human side of care.

Please dress casual. This is an interactive experience and you will be paired up.
