Spiritual Care

Our Spiritual care team are committed to a patient-led approach, listening to your needs and doing our best to guide you towards finding your own answers and meaning.  

Our Chapel-Quiet Space is open daily for patients or guests to pray and reflect on their situation in a tranquil and serene setting. People of any faith or no faith are welcome to use the space and we offer a range of items to suit your needs, for example, prayer mats.

Your own ministers or spiritual leaders are more than welcome to visit you at any time. Our pastoral care team are used to working with leaders of all faiths to ensure you’re cared for in mind, body and spirit.

Spiritual Care is one of the main components at Millenia Hospice.  It is a partnership between each unit of care, as well as with other members of the interdisciplinary team.  We help connect people with their faith, regardless of what it is, calling on spiritual leaders from Catholicism, Judaism, Buddhism, and other religions to offer patients and families the support they need on their journey.

Who Can Take Part in Pastoral Care

Patients, and their loved ones, do not have to share a similar faith, have a strong faith, or even subscribe to any faith at all to benefit from Pastoral Care.

Together, or separately, the individuals in each unit of care may decide what role, if any, they want a member of Pastoral Care to play in their hospice or palliative care journey.

How Can Pastoral Care Help?

The role of pastoral care is to work with the unit of care in whatever capacity needed, and try to understand where each member is coming from through addressing concerns or just listening. 

Often we find that patients or members of their families are struggling with faith, or just struggling to talk about death. We help the families transition to being more comfortable with talking about God, death, and how they find a positive spiritual presence in a situation where they have so many questions. 

Pastoral Care gives people a safe place to share personal issues, past traumas, and other life events.  Often, it can help bring about forgiveness and allow space to work through disconnects so that patients, and their loved ones, can work through them and heal.

Obtaining Pastoral Care Services

Pastoral Care is offered 24/7 by request, through in-patient rounds, and also makes in-home visits for patients under the care of Millenia Hospice.
