For those caring for a Montgomery Hospice patient:
For many patients and families, serious illness raises questions about meaning and purpose, questions such as: Why is this happening to me? Why now? What does it mean to me? to my family?
To help people cope with spiritual distress, Montgomery Hospice offers non-denominational spiritual care. This care is available to people of any or no faith. Our chaplains (who are also called pastoral counselors or spiritual counselors) help patients and families identify what is important and meaningful to them and help them find their own answers to questions they are asking.
Even if patients and families have their own spiritual support, they may want to talk with a Montgomery Hospice chaplain. Our chaplains have extensive experience helping people who are struggling with questions related to the end of life.
Our chaplains have ties to diverse faith communities and can help patients find a spiritual support from their own tradition, if that is what they prefer.
We also respect the wishes of any patient or family member who does not want contact with a chaplain.
Call Montgomery Hospice at 301-921-4400 if we can help in any way.
