The Spiritual Journey
Author Stephen Covey stated, “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but spirit beings having a human experience.” Most people would agree their spiritual faith, values and practices bring great meaning and comfort to their lives. Four Seasons is committed to advocating for the spiritual well-being of not only our patients, but also our caregivers and bereavement clients. Our goal is to provide support for the faith, spiritual disciplines, life philosophy or religious practices valued and honored by the patient and family.
A Chaplain with special training in spirituality and end-of-life care is available to be on Your Care Team. Your Chaplain can help with questions and concerns regarding your faith, ethical issues, or purpose in life; support your search for meaning and hope, assist with alleviating spiritual distress; read sacred and inspirational writings; pray with you and your family; address ceremonial or ritual needs; help with grief, spiritual suffering, and the many emotions that surround those facing a terminal illness; and assist with funeral/memorial services.
A Chaplain may also help to connect the patient/family with a minister or spiritual leader of their particular faith or life philosophy.
