SPIRITUAL CARE

Hospice of North Idaho offers spiritual care to our patients and their families. Spiritual wellbeing is an integral part of your physical well being.  The diagnosis of a life limiting illness can shake you to the core of your being and the thought of dying can be terrifying. It can lead you to question what is truly important in your life.  You may attempt to push people away, especially those you hold most dear, hope to deny your feelings of shock, anger and fear.  These feelings are not uncommon and spiritual care can assist in making sense of what you are feeling and thinking.  It may even inspire spiritual growth and healing.

Our Spiritual Care Coordinator provides spiritual comfort, support, and companionship to our patients and their families.  Our Spiritual Care Volunteers work closely with our Spiritual Care Coordinator who also coordinates support of any faith and belief type that our patients choose for themselves.

Our care is about honoring your memories, life stories, and celebrating through laughter and tears.  We want you to live your life to completion in a way that respects your hopes and desires. We will never preach, evangelize, or attempt to convert anyone to a religious belief.  Our care and support is based on your individual preferences and needs.  We understand that your journey is like no other and needs to be respected and appreciated.
