Spiritual and Religious Care & PriestsHands Praying

A hospital or long term care admission can be very challenging. Patients, residents and family members might find it helpful to speak with a clinical chaplain.

At Bruyère, the clinical chaplains are available to help a patient or resident who are available to support them through the following:

  • If experiencing spiritual distress (fear, guilt, distrust, anxiety, anger, conflict, etc.)
  • For facilitating advance care planning discussions;
  • For addressing concerns about end-of-life or cultural and ethical issues;
  • For participating in a specific ritual or religious rite, such as the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick;
  • For prayer or meditation;
  • To coordinate speaking with a community faith leader.
