Hospitalization and/or crisis situations present many challenges to the emotional and spiritual well-being of patients, family members and friends.
A team of theologically and clinically trained Chaplains, who are members of both the Canadian Association of Spiritual Care and the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, is available to respond to the spiritual and religious needs of patients, families and friends. Spiritual and Religious Care is provided within a multi-faith, multicultural context.
The Chaplain's role is to assist individuals in finding these answers so that they can better cope with the illnesses, traumas, losses and life transitions they may be experiencing.
Community clergy, faith leaders and laity complement the work of the Chaplains and clergy are encouraged to visit members of their faith community regularly. Requests for clergy visits, can be made through nursing staff or Unit Chaplain.
Designated Sacred Spaces are open to all patients and visitors 24 hours a day for prayer or reflection. Information regarding regularly scheduled Worship Service and sacramental needs can be obtained by calling the Spiritual and Religious Care Department.
