What is spiritual care? 

Spiritual care means supporting patients, residents and their families as they navigate their day-to-day lives, challenges and transitions.  

Chaplains and volunteer chaplains provide Bible study and worship. They also meet with residents and patients one-on-one for spiritual guidance and counseling, devotions, prayer and conversation.

Spiritual care in hospice 

Chaplains walk with patients and their families as they approach and move through the end of life. That can mean lending a listening ear, talking, singing, devotions, sharing stories or simply sitting side by side.
