It is important to nourish both the mind and the body during the hospice journey. Chaplains work with individuals who are terminally ill or nearing the end of their life. They help the patient come to terms with their life, while providing answers to any questions the patient may have on a spiritual level. Chaplains assist patients in finding individualized coping strategies and create a comforting atmosphere for patients and their families.

If an individual feels they can benefit from the support of a chaplain, a chaplain will work with a team of other professionals. A chaplain does not replace clergy members, instead they are there to assist and work together with members of a palliative care team.  A chaplain works with individuals of all backgrounds, religious or non-religious. The members of the patient’s individualized team work together to find the best form of care to meet the unique needs of each patient. In addition to providing support and spiritual guidance, a chaplain also provides bereavement services, including phone calls, visits, and memorial services. Chaplains are not only available during the patients end of life care, they are also here to help after a loved one passes away.
