It’s not easy coming into a hospice. Whatever the reason for your visit, you may find that you have questions and uncertainties that you would like to explore, thoughts and feelings that are hard to discuss with the people who are closest to you. Sometimes it’s easier to talk to someone who is not directly involved in your situation – and this is where the Spiritual and Pastoral Care Team may be able to help.
Members of the team are trained to be careful and compassionate listeners, and offer confidential, non-judgemental support regardless of denomination, culture or ethnicity. The same support is offered both to patients, and to any family members or friends who might find it helpful.
You don’t have to be religious to access this service: the big questions about identity and life’s meaning are equally important whether you believe in God or not.
Many of our volunteers have a faith, but some are humanists or atheists; and no one will try to pressurize or convert you.
