How Caraway Can Help
Anna Chaplains work in the community to promote and resource the spiritual needs of all older people. Primarily they are there to listen and help navigate some of the changes we all face in our later years. They are also available to pray, explore faith and help others to connect with God where appropriate.
Care Homes and Supported Housing
Spiritually resourcing the most frail and vulnerable in our communities is a fundamental part of the work of Caraway. Led by a team of Anna Chaplains we aim to hold a regular Act of Worship in all Care Homes across the city, along with visiting residents and supporting family and staff where appropriate.
Bringing older people together to enjoy food, laughter and companionship is central to Caraway’s work. We organise and resource both regular and annual community events throughout the year.
Training and Resourcing
Caraway is committed to providing a range of training opportunities for those working and volunteering with older people to support, resource and underpin their work in the community and residential care.
Holiday at Home
We’ve had fun cruising around the Mediterranean, taking in the sights of Paris and travelling to Scotland over the past few years – and all without leaving Southampton! These are wonderful, annual events, bringing our older community together for a fun-filled few days.
Dementia Friendly Community Events
In partnership with our local NHS Admiral Nurses, employed to help the carers of people living with dementia, we run monthly Film Afternoons and Memory Cafes.
