Chaplain’s Corner

We created this page with our NVNA and Hospice team in mind to open space for information and discussion in terms of what we need the most on the spiritual side. Our colleagues care daily for people dealing with their deepest emotional questions. Sometimes we don’t have answers for them, or even for ourselves. With that in mind we will offer articles, links and open space for discussion on issues that are important for our patients/residents and for us as clinicians and caregivers. Feel free to get in touch with our Chaplain team at anytime. We are here for our staff.

Thank you for all you do for our hospice families. It’s important to take care of your own spiritual health and our Chaplain team is here for you. Please click here to get some more information.

What is Spiritual Care?

Our spirituality is that which makes each of us unique. It relates to those things in which we find meaning, hope, love and purpose. For some it will be reflected in what they have achieved in life or who have been the key people in their relationships. For some it may have a religious element expressed in a belief and practiced through a particular faith.

How Our Spiritual Care Team Supports Our Patients and Families

NVNA and Hospice welcomes everyone – of all faiths and beliefs or none – and encourages you to express your spirituality or practice your religion in your own way

The Spiritual Care staff is part of the hospice team, and are available to everyone and visit regularly.

If you think you would find it helpful to talk to someone, our Spiritual support chaplains are available to explore questions concerns or feelings/thoughts with you.

When you are seriously ill, you and those close to you may have questions or concerns that can be just as distressing as the physical symptoms of your illness.

Questions such as, “Why is this happening to me?” “What has my life meant?” “What happens after I die?” Concerns may be about how your illness is affecting you; about what is important to you at this time; hopes and fears for yourself, your family and others who are close to you.

Our Spiritual Care Team is trained to offer the best care for our patients. Meet our Spiritual Care providers:
