Spiritual Care is all about Caring for the Human Spirit. The human spirit is that part of every person seeking meaning, purpose, hope, and love.

In times of illness, trauma and loss, a person’s beliefs, values, and feelings are important aspects of their healthcare. Within the Regina Qu'Appelle Health Region a Chaplain is a Spiritual Care professional who is a member of your healthcare team.

Chaplains:

  • Listen to your fears, concerns, and needs;
  • Help you identify who or what is important to you;
  • Help you identify what you believe;
  • Help you ask your own questions and help you find your own answers; and
  • If you want, can link you with your own religious or spiritual community

Call a Chaplain when you:

  • have important treatment decisions to think about;
  • have been given life changing news;
  • have a religious or spiritual need;
  • have questions about yourself, others, life, or God;
  • are worried about your family; and
  • have questions about death and dying

Memorial Observances

Wascana Rehabilitation Centre Memorials
At Wascana Rehabilitation Centre, an annual Memorial Observance is provided for the family, friends,and staff of residents who have died while in the Region's care. This Memorial is held in the spring, and is a way to remember and honour all those WRCresidents who have died over the past year. In November, around Remembrance Day, there is an annual War Veterans’ Memorial as well.

 

Perinatal Loss Memorial Gathering
This annual Memorial Gathering is always held the first Sunday in October at 2 pm. The location is determined on an annual basis. Anyone who has experienced or has been touched by the death of a baby is most welcome to attend; the loss need not have been recent. Informational posters about the Memorial are sent to doctors’ offices and funeral homes; public service announcements are sent to the media; often the Leader Post will print an article about the upcoming Memorial.
