Oct. 23 to 29 is Pastoral Care Week, an annual observance celebrating spiritual care and those who provide it.
Faith can offer comfort and guidance throughout a person’s life, including the last chapter of life. For this reason, spiritual care is an important aspect of hospice. After all, a hospice patient’s and family’s needs aren’t limited to the physiological. The end of life can be a time for finding and making peace; sacred tradition; joy; thanksgiving; and preparation. Alive Hospice chaplains are guides and companions on that path.
Wherever a patient is receiving care ‚Äď at home, at an Alive Hospice inpatient facility or other care facility ‚Äď Alive Hospice chaplains are faithful servants.¬†Your faithful servants.
Happy Pastoral Care Week!
