Salus Spiritual Support During Hospice Care

Spirituality is a connection with the human spirit and soul. The word is interpreted in different ways by different people and often develops and expands over time. In hospice care, spiritual support is about helping patients to connect or reconnect with their spiritual side. For some, that means exploring their beliefs regarding an organized religion. For others, it might mean self-contemplation, journaling or otherwise exploring their inner feelings and ideals. Responses to spiritual exploration can vary from sadness to isolation or even becoming extremely hyper and needing constant attention. Salus Hospice recognizes the importance of nurturing an individual’s spiritual side especially during the end stages of life, and we provide a variety of services that can help.

Spiritual Hospice Support Provided:

  • Clergy support
  • Personal or family counseling
  • Providing literature related to spirituality

Nurturing your spiritual self is important regardless of your religious beliefs. Opportunities for contemplation and conversation with a chaplain helps many patients to regain a sense of purpose, reconnect with loved ones and better manage uncomfortable emotional or physical symptoms.

Salus’ spiritual support is offered in a sensitive way and without judgement to make the experience comfortable and enjoyable for the patient.  While we never force any patient to accept spiritual support, it remains available throughout the hospice care experience to help patients address questions, concerns or needs.

We had several (close to a dozen) care providers over the course of the 4 months of home care needs. Nearly all were professional and performed at or above expectations. The exceptions were noted and corrective action was provided by the Salus leadership.

I was very impressed by the excellent care, concern and support that I received from my physical therapist and nurse. I appreciate how professional and knowledgeable both of them were and gentle too.
