Spiritual Care Volunteers
The Spiritual Care program in Fraser Health provides spiritual and religious support to patients and families within programs such as End of Life and Residential as well as at our Acute Care sites in the region. Spiritual care is part of Fraser Health's ongoing commitment to patients, and our mission to offer them the highest quality of health care, which includes holistic support. To accomplish this task we are glad to receive Spiritual Care Volunteers, to assist with the emotional and spiritual support that our patients and families require.
The compassion and support of Spiritual Care Coordinators/Practitioners along with Spiritual Care Volunteers and Community Faith Leaders ensures that we are providing a multi-faith/cultural care environment, where patients can explore the meaning of their illness and have people from both their faith and culture to journey with them.
