Spiritual Care

Our part-time chaplain offers a compassionate presence while providing emotional and spiritual care and counsel. The chaplain promotes wholeness and the well-being of patients, residents, families, and staff.

  • Crisis situations
  • Conversations that explore meaning and purpose in life
  • Grief and loss
  • Support for families and friends impacted by a loved one's illness or death
  • Exploring ethical concerns of patients, residents, and staff
