World leader in practical theology begins work with HammondCare

World leader in practical theology and author of Dementia: Living in the Memories of God, Professor John Swinton, has recently visited Australia on his first trip as consultant for HammondCare.

Prof Swinton will work with HammondCare to develop innovation in theology and spiritual practice in relation to older people and those living with dementia.

HammondCare has a strong commitment to providing personalised and holistic care, including pastoral care, and this partnership with Prof Swinton will further enhance the way care is provided for people in need.
