What is Spirtual Care?
That care which recognizes and responds to the needs of the human spirit when faced with trauma, ill health or sadness and can include the need for meaning, for self worth, to express oneself, for faith support, perhaps for rites or prayer or sacrament, or simply for a sensitive listener. Spiritual care begins with encouraging human contact in compassionate relationship, and moves in whatever direction need requires.
On-call local clergy members can be accessed on a 24-hour basis to meet the spiritual needs of both inpatients and outpatients. Your nurse will contact them at your request. And, we would be pleased to assist you in arranging a visit with your own clergyperson.
