Spirituality can be described as that which gives meaning to life. It refers to the universal need for love, hope relatedness, value and dignity. Spiritual needs are very important and personal. Spirituality may or may not involve religious beliefs and practices.
Frontier Hospice recognizes the importance of the spiritual dimension in the services provided to our patients and their families.
Our non-denominational Spiritual Care Counselors (chaplains) are highly trained and experienced professionals with advanced training in cultural and religious diversity as well as perspectives on health, disease, death and dying.
Our Spiritual Care team offers support to hospice patients and families through:
Discussing life events and their meaning
Exploring end of life issues and feelings
Offering familiar religious practices such as inspirational readings, prayers, administering sacraments, and other meaningful rituals
Networking with local faith communities
Assisting with funeral planning and officiating at funerals and memorial services
