Salus Spiritual Support During Hospice Care

Spirituality means being concerned with the human spirit or soul. Despite the association people often make between spirituality and religion, being spiritual does not have to mean being religious. While some people do participate in an organized religion, others search for an inner connection to self or a reflection of their own thoughts and how their life impacts others. When diagnosed with a life-limiting illness, many patients question spirituality. This might involve a soul searching experience about the meaning of life, or it could mean coming to terms with things they have done in the past and asking for forgiveness or answers from a greater being. Having support often makes this very personal experience easier and more successful. Salus Homecare Los Angeles is here to honor your personal definition of spirituality and provide you with the right services to nurture you, open up opportunities for conversation and find your best path toward healing, acceptance and understanding.

Not everyone is religious. However, non-denominational spiritual support can benefit everyone, regardless of your beliefs. Our support is not meant to judge or convert you. It can help you regain a sense of purpose, better cope with challenges or difficult decisions and even mend relationships with people you care about. Spiritual health has known connections with emotional and physical health, so taking care of these needs can sometimes make pain easier to manage and help you to better control depression, anxiety or other challenging emotions.

Salus Homecare Los Angeles offers spiritual support that is non-judgmental, non-denominational and sensitive to the personal nature of these conversations. In most cases, patients begin the conversations, and we simply start by lending a supportive ear. While spiritual support is not a mandatory service, it is always available. If you are curious about the benefits it offers, we encourage you to give it a try.

 

Excellent service . My nurse was very thorough and caring. Thank you for a very positive and caring experience.

Our clinicians were excellent. We went with your agency so we could have them. We will again be starting home health in a week and will request both of these ladies.

Spiritual Support FAQ's

If you don’t see your question, please give us a call: (888) 725-8742

No, hospice spiritual support is non-denominational. We provide this support to people of all faiths and even those who choose not to prescribe to a specific faith or any faith at all. Our hospice chaplain is non-judgmental and will simply listen, provide support and help you to access the resources that make this stage of your life’s journey a little easier to cope with.

No, our goal is not to take the place of your spiritual home. Rather, we want to add to your support system and even make it easier for you to remain connected with your church. We are happy to work in conjunction with your minister, pastor, priest, rabbi, imam or other spiritual leader and will always encourage you to turn to the people you trust most for advice, conversation and support.

Salus Homecare Los Angeles has many resources available for people who are not religious. These include books, articles, and books on tape as well as help accessing support groups or other community resources. We can also make recommendations with regard to journaling, working with various art mediums or listening to or playing music to help you connect with your spiritual side. The most important thing to understand is that this journey is personal for everyone. In our role, we will listen first to best understand where you are at and where you wish to go so we can find the right tools to help you get there.
