Spiritual Care

Spiritual care is an integral component in the holistic care concept of hospice. Some of the primary concerns of a dying patient are spiritual questions related to sense of purpose, the meaning of life, self-image and hope for the future. The knowledge that we will die soon demands that we explore our beliefs.

TMC Hospice respects a patient's spiritual and personal values, beliefs and preferences. A spiritual counselor is available to provide spiritual support and guidance, and can also help coordinate spiritual care with local religious leaders. The spiritual counselor can help patients and family members deal with feelings of fear, anger, frustration and grief.
