Our Spiritual Care staff provides support for patients and their families as physical, emotional and spiritual needs arise. This means working through questions that often come up during and after a loss, such as “Why me?”, “Why must my loved one suffer?” and “What can I leave behind as a testament to my life?”
The need for spiritual care differs from person to person. Some find solace in their faith; others may need to evaluate the meaning of their life and relationships or come to terms with important issues. Please note that, although Arbor Hospice is not a faith-based organization, we have great respect for the wide range of backgrounds and cultural traditions of those we serve. We make a point of working closely with clergy to assure the spiritual needs of our patients are met.
