Chaplains are integral partners in patient care. We understand that during a serious illness, family members and patients often benefit from spiritual support. Our chaplains assist and provide spiritual care during your time of need in a way that honors your own beliefs, bringing peace and comfort.
At Horizon Hospice, chaplains take their cues from the patients, and develop individualized care plans that respect your beliefs, wishes, particular spirituality, and emotional concerns. Each patient is assigned a chaplain who develops a care plan tailored to their specific needs, and spiritual care is available at any time.
All Horizon Hospice chaplains are ordained ministers with experience and professional training to provide spiritual care. The scope of care can cover not only the patient, but also everyone involved, including caregivers, family members, and facility staff.
Chaplains are resources to the community, providing grief support to local facilities that have experienced losses of their own, delivering training to agencies regarding spiritual needs at the end of life, and facilitating grief care groups. Chaplains are available to officiate at patient funerals and graveside services at no cost to the family.
