|Description & Services|
|Description of service(s)||Spirituality is an integral component of healing. Spiritual health provides a source of coping, inner strength, peace, hope and joy even in difficult times. Sometimes hospitalization may lead to spiritual distress.
Symptoms of spiritual distress include hopelessness, fear, resentment, loneliness, blaming, powerlessness, grief, shame, guilt, distrust, withdrawal, regret, conflict, apathy and anger. Addressing this distress can contribute to a greater sense of wholeness and wellness. Members of the Spiritual and Religious Care Team are professionally trained to offer multi-faith care in a clinical setting.
The Spiritual and Religious Care Team is available to patients , their families and staff.
We not only support you in your spiritual distress; we can also journey with you during your times of consolation and peace.
