Spiritual Care

A visit to the Hospital, whether planned or unexpected, often brings with it a re-evaluation of priorities. We have an opportunity to reflect on questions that really matter, such as the meaning of life, suffering, relationships, losses, changes, death and dying, and the afterlife. We believe that Health Care encompasses physical, mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of life. And so we strive to help bring healing by walking with patients and family as they find meaning and balance in their whole life.

We work, not separate from, but as part of the health care team, providing sensitive and compassionate support, honouring the worth and dignity of each human life.

An overview of the spiritual care program of BTHC includes the following:

  • Coordinating Sunday Morning Worship Services in our chapel from local Congregations.
  • Connecting Local Clergy with Patients when requested.
  • Providing staff support and counselling when needed.
  • Helping to facilitate Critical Incident Stress Debriefing sessions.
  • Crisis intervention and counselling.
  • Providing or arranging appropriate faith based sacramental ministry.
  • Providing a Thursday morning Chapel in the Rehab department.
  • Patient and family support during, illness, loss, death and dying, depression, childbirth and loss.
  • Practising “Presence,” “Active Listening,” and “Prayer” with both patients and staff.
  • Working as part of the “Inter-disciplinary Health Care Team” in family meetings, admission and discharge planning, and care planning.

The Spiritual Care program offered at Boundary Trails Health Centre relies solely on donations and fundraising.
