With the help of our Social Workers, we coordinate care to involve the entire family’s spiritual, emotional, and financial needs.
What is Spiritual Support?
Spiritual support, part of hospice and palliative care, may help people cope better with the hard, spiritual questions that come up at the end of life. Spiritual support is not the same for everyone. We will match each patient with a spiritual counselor with the same beliefs.
Hospice service includes care from medical, social and spiritual disciplines. The Georgia Community Hospice Spiritual Support Counselor is an integral part of the Hospice team.
Our Spiritual Support Counselor listens to the client and family members and is supportive with end of life needs.
Our goal is to help each patient feel at peace and comfort.
The Georgia Community Hospice Spiritual Support Counselor is non denominational.
The Georgia Community Hospice Spiritual Support Counselor meets with clients and family members and provides necessary emotional and spiritual support.
The Georgia Community Hospice Spiritual Support Counselor is available at any time during care to clients and their families.
Spiritual Support Counseling services are available wherever people call home, including long-term care and assisted living facilities.
The service is confidential.
Natural part of life and the journey through grief is life-changing. Grief is an individual process and there is no right way to grieve. It is not something we can “get over” in a few days, weeks, or months.
There is no end to grief but there is healing in grief.
Experiencing and working through grief will allow you to adjust to life after loss. To heal in grief is to reconcile your grief and find new meaning in life.
Our bereavement services
Help you work toward reconciling your grief to move forward in your life without the physical presence of the person who died.
Our patients’ families receive bereavement services for thirteen months or longer after the death of a loved one.
Family members receive bereavement support phone calls or visits, invitations to our annual community memorial services and receive a monthly newsletter, Journeys, which is published by the Hospice Foundation of America.
Bereavement services, including our support groups, are available to community members and your loved one does not need to be a Hospice patient for you to benefit from our services.
We offer social services to meet the entire family’s needs. Our social workers work with the family to find benefits for which they are eligible and they are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help arrange the family’s wishes.
Georgia Community Hospice’s medical team develops a care plan that meets each patient’s individual needs for pain management and symptoms control.
