Hospice care is about knowing you as a whole person, with years of life to draw on and beliefs that have grown on the way. That’s as good a way as any to think about spiritual care – how what you believe about life and what is most important to you, is important to us.
The chaplaincy and spiritual care team looks forward to getting to know people of all faiths and philosophies. We want to make sure, with the rest of the staff, that your beliefs are understood and built into your care at every level.
The chaplain and spiritual care coordinator for the hospice is David Knight and he and his team are available to you 24/7, 365 days a year.
The hospice has two special spaces that are perfect for prayer, meditation, or just peace and quiet. In the Day Hospice, there is a comfortable chapel with a variety of services on offer throughout the week. Just off the new In-Patient Unit reception, you’ll find our Peace Room.
As a team, we promise:
- To offer the highest quality spiritual care at all times to patients and their families
- To make your starting point our starting point – whatever your faith or philosophy
- To listen carefully
- To give impartial advice when asked
- To keep confidences
We look forward to meeting you.
