Salus Spiritual Support During Hospice Care

Spirituality means different things for different people. For some, it involves participating in an organized religion, and for others, it simply refers to honoring an individual’s sense of purpose and connection to the universe. In the event of a terminal illness, many individuals begin to question the deeper meaning of life and their own spiritual existence. Responses can vary from sadness to isolation or even becoming extremely hyper and needing constant attention. At Salus Homecare of Orange County, we recognize the importance of nurturing a dying individual’s spiritual side and provide a variety of services that can help.

Spiritual Hospice Support Provided:

  • Clergy support
  • Personal or family counseling
  • Providing literature related to spirituality
  • Helping individuals to access support groups

Even when a client is not religious, it is still beneficial to nurture and support their spirituality. Nurturing spirituality helps many individuals to regain a sense of purpose in the final weeks or months of life, and it can play a part in helping individuals to manage any uncomfortable physical symptoms they may be experiencing.

Salus Homecare of Orange County’s spiritual support is offered in a sensitive, non-judgemental way that provides comfort. While we never force any client to accept spiritual support, it remains available should they ever choose to address their own questions, concerns or needs.

All Salus nurses were first rate! Very pleasant and helpful.

Spiritual Support FAQ's

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

While for some, spirituality equates with religion, spiritual care includes any beliefs, practices, and relationships that help people find meaning, comfort, and hope. It is our desire to connect you with that which gives you peace during what may be a difficult season of life. At times, this is just the presence of a caring person to listen, read scriptures, pray or talk about whatever is on your mind.

No, Salus Homecare of Orange County’s hospice honors the individual beliefs and faiths of all of our clients. We respect the relationship you have formed with your church and encourage you to maintain it.

This is something that becomes especially important to all individuals in the end stages of life. Many people benefit by starting a journal and reflecting on their personal accomplishments and the things they have enjoyed doing. Others find art mediums such as creating music, painting a picture or building with clay to be helpful. Salus Homecare of Orange County’s hospice chaplains can offer other suggestions that might help you to find the peace and sense of purpose that you are searching for.
