In Wisdom Care we believe in a world where old age is viewed as a time of meaningful growth, where the importance of Elders for our society and culture is recognized.
We envision empowered self-aware women embodying with dignity their elderhood, finding peace in the present moment and awakening to the need for their gifts and guidance for the benefit of themselves, of younger generations and of the Earth.
We believe that the approach to dying and old age should be radically changed in facilities for the elderly.
Our approach to caregiving focuses on the improvement of quality of life and self-worth through the honoring and compassionate understanding of old age, and through explorations of how to inhabit the aging body, emotions, mind and spirit. We take care to bring back the importance of open-hearted presence, beauty and creativity, as well as non-judgmental awareness of thought and feeling patterns, to ease suffering, pain, and feelings of isolation in elders despite their living situations and physical circumstances.
