Spiritual care

This service offers support and accompaniment to long-term and short-term patients, their families and their loved ones. Spiritual care is non-confessional, which means that it respects each patient’s freedoms and beliefs.

How to access this service

Spiritual care is normally offered during the day by spiritual care workers, although staff from the care units can join them at any time. Spiritual care can be offered in various contexts and to respond to different needs, such as:

  • Spiritual impacts related to illness, grief or suffering,
  • Crises or dramatic events that require spiritual support,
  • Spiritual reflection required during important decisions or in the face of ethical considerations, in collaboration with the members of the interdisciplinary team (end of life, organ donation),
  • Spiritual or religious rites.
