Compassionate Touch

Wednesday 05/12/2021 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Live Webinar Presentation

Presented by Chris Petrik, RN, BS, CDP, Certified Dementia Educator
Training Specialist, Elderwerks Educational Services

In partnership with the 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.

Compassionate Touch® 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® brings together the world of medical technology and treatment with the human side of care.
