elder spiritual care


Miravida Living has been an accredited program of ACPE Inc. Since 1994. Clinical Pastoral Education in our center provides the student with the opportunity to pursue personal and professional growth as a spiritual care provider while also learning about our industry leading approach to spiritual care among elders living with the challenges of chronic illness and the impact of dementia. Living with Wonder is what Miravida means, and creating a community where this is how we approach our work, learning, and relationships is what the participant can expect to experience.
