A spiritual counselor is available to assist you with any spiritual concerns, issues, or needs you may have. He or she could serve as a link to your spiritual community and assist with any rituals that you may desire. He or she is interdenominational and is familiar with many faiths. The Chaplain's purpose is to assist you and your family on your journey. A spiritual counselor will be initially visiting as part of the hospice's assessment team in order to introduce themselves and help you determine your individual needs.
