The chaplain offers spiritual and emotional support for patients and their families. When physical health begins to fail, the nurturing of the spirit becomes critical for maintaining the dignity of the individual. The Chaplain can also work alongside a patient’s own clergy, counselor or others for additional support. They assist families during this emotionally difficult time, as well as provide information on common aspects of grief.
The hospice aide assists with the patient’s personal care, which may include bathing, hair and skin care, dental care and more.
The Social Worker is a counselor for the patient and the family, assisting with financial, insurance and legal issues while arranging a volunteer support system and other community services.
Hospice volunteers are specially trained individuals who support the patient in a variety of ways, such as companionship, completing errands, providing transportation and more.
