Spiritual Support for Patients and Families
During this important time of life, many people reflect on what their lives have meant, and what their lives still can mean. A thoughtful listener can often help. That is the role of our spiritual counselors.
Benton Hospice Service spiritual counselors are available to help you consider questions that now seem more important, perhaps even more urgent, than they might have just a short time ago.
You might be asking yourself questions such as:
- What is my past, my present—and my future?
- What is the meaning and importance of my life?
- What do I think about my successes and failures?
- How can I find peace?
- Do I need to forgive or to be forgiven?
- Do I need to forgive myself?
Benton Hospice Service spiritual counselors visit any of our patients and families who wish it. They listen to concerns and help people resolve them in their own way.
For some people, considering these life questions includes God. If desired, a spiritual counselor can share spiritual writings, hymns, or prayers, or contact a faith community on your behalf.
Other people don't want to talk about a God, but the questions still need answering.
Sometimes people want to think about rituals and services of remembrance. A spiritual counselor can help you think about what will be best for you and your family.
Topics for conversation are up to you. Our spiritual counselors are here to serve you and your family in whatever way helps you most.
Benton Hospice Service spiritual counselors do not represent or promote any religion or religious organization.
