Supporting Patients With Pastoral Care

A hospice chaplain focuses on a patient and their family’s emotional and spiritual needs while other hospice care professionals attend to their physical and psychological needs as they near the end of their life. Agape Hospice NW recognizes chaplains as critical hospice team members. Getting a terminal diagnosis surpasses the need for medical care as a person faces their mortality, spirituality, the afterlife, and the meaning of life. These topics are concerns for religious and non-religious patients. Each of our hospice teams in Portland, OR offers pastoral care with a chaplain for patients and families. Our chaplains can arrange any support they need to get through non-medical challenges and issues as they near their life’s end.

Believers & Non-Believers Welcome to Pastoral Hospice Care

Hospice chaplains are part of our hospice care services team, providing overall guidance, spiritual assessments, and pastoral counseling to deal with illness, loss, and death. Patients don’t need a religious affiliation to receive pastoral care and counseling. Our pastors have the training to work with all cultures, traditions, belief systems, and religious orientations. Hospice chaplains primarily make themselves available to listen, talk, hold hands, and share stories. These faith leaders also ask questions, pray, read inspirational materials, reassure, and comfort while providing guidance if you need or request it.
