Spiritual Care

Spiritual Care

Spiritual care and support are an integral part of hospice care and may be especially helpful during times of loss and grief as we seek to find meaning, a sense of reconnection and hope. Spirituality can take many forms and is not confined to religion. The journey of the final stage of life is a time of searching for meaning, value and completion of your life. Spiritual care is about offering to “be with” you in the search. It is about sharing the moment, whatever that moment dictates.

It is available to all people regardless of their beliefs. Sometimes, a patient might like a Spiritual Carer to pray with them, to support them through a time of distress, or simply sit with them. At other times, the involvement of spiritual care may be more formal, such as giving communion or a blessing.

As well as personal spiritual support, you, your family/whānau and friends, you are invited to attend our Hamilton Remembrance Service, and other services offered in communities throughout the region. If you would like further information please phone Gail on 07 859 1260.
