Title:
House of the Caring Spirits
Abstract:
House of the Caring Spirits
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2003
Author:Wolf, Terri, BS
P.I. Institution Name:na
The “House of the Caring Spirits” is a fiber art quilt that is an aesthetic representation of a caring relationship based on the theories of Jean Watson. The quilt and a paper were the final projects for a nursing course and show the student’s experience of caring for an 89-year-old man with Alzheimer’s disease while learning caring theory. The student chose a quilt as the aesthetic medium because it represented comfort and warmth--both qualities of nursing. The design elements of the house reference the client’s continual requests to go home from the adult day care center where they met. The smaller houses each represent one of Watson’s Carative Factors. The figures or caring spirits represent the nursing profession and the colored squares symbolize the energy of caring.
