Interaction with the Elderly is important as it means actively engaging and caring for them. Family members need to be aware of the need to communicate and actively interact with their elderly relatives or parents when caring for them at home.

. Interaction comprises of:

1 - Communication - Understanding the individual and his/her needs

2 - Care & Concern - Sharing of burdens and problems

3 - Actions:  that demonstrate the above

Interaction brings satisfaction through mutual understanding in relationships

     
     
At SWS, Pastoral Care is given to help family members of elderly folks better understand the three elements of "Interaction". Our aim is not to substitute the role of the family, rather to advise them. Our Pastors and counsellors are willing to teach and guide anyone who needs help in interacting with their elderly parents or relatives. Medical advice is also available on how to best provide care for the elderly at home.
