Seeking inspiration: the rediscovery of the spiritual dimension in health and social care in England

Seeking inspiration: the rediscovery of the spiritual dimension in health and social care in England Not so long ago Western society assumed that its citizens would get progressively richer and more leisured, and that inequality would not matter. There was also an assumption that health and social care services would simultaneously become more technically proficient and more concerned with a person's dignity and their individual needs. This paper considers this theme, looks at the current state of health and social care and the need to bring a sense of the spiritual back to revivify the service. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png "Mental Health, Religion & Culture" Taylor & Francis

Abstract

Not so long ago Western society assumed that its citizens would get progressively richer and more leisured, and that inequality would not matter. There was also an assumption that health and social care services would simultaneously become more technically proficient and more concerned with a person's dignity and their individual needs. This paper considers this theme, looks at the current state of health and social care and the need to bring a sense of the spiritual back to revivify the service.
