Spiritual Care

Our Spiritual Care staff provides support for patients and their families as physical, emotional and spiritual needs arise. This means working through questions that often come up during and after a loss, such as “Why me?”, “Why must my loved one suffer?” and “What can I leave behind as a testament to my life?”
The need for spiritual care differs from person to person. Some find solace in their faith; others may need to evaluate the meaning of their life and relationships or come to terms with important issues. Please note that, although Hospice of Michigan is not a faith-based organization, we have great respect for the wide range of backgrounds and cultural traditions of those we serve. We make a point of working closely with clergy to assure the spiritual needs of our patients are met.
