About

Towards Home

Enid Muirhead, RN, M.Ed, GNC

Managing Director

I interpret ‘home’ as a state of being, akin to ‘optimum wellness’ or ‘wholeness’, and human life, lived intentionally, as a journey in ever-changing times and circumstances towards wholeness—a state of unity in mind, body and spirit.

~ Private consultations, mid-life to older adulthood

~ Wellness promotion events – seminars and workshops

Private Consultations:

Elder Health: Being Your Best

Wellness & Vitality Promotion

Illness Prevention

Professional, holistic wellness promotion practice is informed by energy-field healing modalities and Nursing models.

Individualized therapeutic approach to each person is guided by the “Human-Becoming” Nursing model of Rosemary R. Parse, which focuses on the unique perspective and meanings of individuals.

“The most universal characteristic of increasing age is increasing uniqueness and diversity. For many reasons, as we age, we become less and less like others of the same age. As if that isn’t surprising enough, there are many myths about aging and misunderstandings about what constitutes normal age-related changes as opposed to the beginning of a disease process.” ~ Carol A. Miller (2010)

Towards Home wellness consultants focus on the unique questions, concerns, and goals of family caregivers and elder individuals or couples in mid to late adulthood, while emphasizing the significance of body-mind-spirit interconnectedness to states of wellness and disease.

Maybe you are just wondering how you are doing and would like to explore that, relative to age and other factors.

Private consultation are by appointment, and involve history taking, focused and comprehensive assessments, and development of a care plan, including connecting, referring, and linking to other health care professionals, services, and resources.
