THE ANAM-CARE INITIATIVE

“MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN THE VALLEY”


ACI's Vision is to be a compassionate resource for patients, families and caregivers that takes into account the Spiritual dimension of healing in palliative and end of life care, both in medicalized and home care settings.

As a graduate of the Sacred Art of Living Center's Anam Cara apprentice program, Barbara O'Neil, founding member of the ACI is passionate about her dedication to supporting the revival of the ancient Anam Cara tradition in modern day health care that brings the sacred arts of healing to truly holistic models caring for patients, families and caregivers in palliative and end of life circumstances.

The Anam-Care Initiative

It is the intent of the Anam-Care Initiative to promote ‘another level of comfort for our loved ones’ in current palliative and end of life care that underscores the vital role spiritual care and sacred healing services have in supporting patients, families and care-givers through life transitions, both within institutionalized care facilities and in home care settings.

The Anam-Care Initiative provides spiritual companioning visitations to patients, families and caregivers by trained Anam-Care providers, it offers charitable outreach to caregivers providing holistic services that address compassion fatigue (burnout), and it promotes quality educational experiences for both lay and professional caregivers that teach compassion based healing care skills which offers ‘another level of caring for loved ones’ in palliative and end of life care.
