Spiritual Care is about responding to human suffering with care, understanding and compassion for the whole person, with particular focus on the person's spirituality. Spiritual Care gives patients and their loved ones the ability to deal with sickness, find hope and peace in the midst of suffering, and bring purpose and meaning to both living and dying.
A patient or family member may wish to receive Spiritual Care when:
- they have important treatment decisions to think about,
- they have been given life changing news,
- they have questions about self, others, life, or God,
- they are worried about their family,
- they have questions about death and dying,
- they would like to request rites, sacraments, prayers, or scripture reading.
Spiritual Care Providers can assist with all of the above. To request Spiritual Care, you may either call a provider directly, or ask unit staff or Switchboard to contact someone for you.
The Regina General Hospital and the Wascana Rehab Centre have Multifaith Centres. The Pasqua Hospital has a chapel. All are welcome to use these sacred spaces for quiet reflection, meditation or prayer.
