Uniting AgeWell provides spiritual care that is committed to listening deeply to individual needs by providing opportunities for different expressions of spirituality and responding in ways that are appropriate, inclusive and respectful.

Spirituality is the central part of our being human, through which we seek to understand and explore life and experience relationship with ourselves, others and the sacred.

We express spirituality in different ways, according to whether we are people of religious, spiritual or secular belief.

The spiritual care Uniting AgeWell offers is broad in nature. It may include religious care based in religious traditions or secular care. It also creates space for individual expressions of spirituality in a way that may be most meaningful to you.

Our Spirituality Framework is the foundation for how Uniting AgeWell understands spirituality, and spiritual, secular, and religious care across all levels of the organisation.

Learn more about our Spirituality Framework

At the heart of Uniting AgeWell's Spirituality Framework is a very intentional focus to put spiritual needs on equal footing with physical, mental and social needs.

The Framework intersects with principles and commitments shared by Uniting AgeWell and the Uniting Church in Australia.

It highlights Uniting AgeWell’s commitment to supporting the people it serves to understand their life and find purpose in it, in a way that takes into account any limitations they may live with; and our commitment to courageous conversations with the hard topics of ageing, suffering and dying.
