Many people think spiritual care is focused on religion.
“We don’t have any particular spiritual or religious affiliation,” says Karuna, a board-certified chaplain, and spiritual counselor. “I have no agenda. Our role is to meet people where they are and walk with them in their journey of end-of-life. Whatever that looks like for each person, we support what’s important to them.”
Spiritual Counselors are part of the Dedicated Care Team supporting each patient at Hospice of the Northwest. This interdisciplinary team works together, with the patient and their circle of support, to build a personalized care plan focused on their specific needs and goals.
