How Are Religious Needs Met?
For many people who follow a faith, this is a way of life. Moving into residential care can leave them concerned about still having the freedom to practice their faith as they would have done previously. So how will their religious needs be met?
In The Home
Across our care homes, we cater for a range of religions and religious backgrounds. This allows our team to make arrangements and adjustments to ensure that each and every resident’s needs can be met within the safety of the home.
Religious Activities – religious activities that take place at home can vary between religions, the home will ensure that the individual will have the means to undertake the activity where possible. This may include a private space to pray, undertake religious rituals or just a place to gather thoughts.
Dietary Requirements – Some religions include specific dietary requirements. As residents will eat the majority, if not all, of their meals from the care homes kitchen, the team will ensure that these needs are catered for. This can include halal and vegetarian, amongst others.
