The Chaplains are part of the multidisciplinary team at Hospice who will care for your spiritual and religious needs, irrespective of beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, race or ethnic background.
We understand that being diagnosed with a life limiting illness makes life uncertain. Maybe it causes us to question things that we previously took for granted. Perhaps it makes us fearful about the future.
The main work of Chaplains is to listen and support the patients and their families, friends and help explore feelings, thoughts, hopes and also any fears or anxieties they may have.
Chaplains also support anyone on their bereavement journey individually or as part of the Bereavement Support Programme.
We also offer more specific spiritual help through prayer, reading of Scripture and religious services. At all times we respect the right of individuals not to avail of chaplaincy and so only visit patients by his or her request.
The Chaplaincy team has three chaplains drawn from different Christian traditions and visits patients from all denominations, religions and none. If the patient has a local church connection, the chaplain will offer to contact his or her clergy, informing them of the patient’s admission.
