TCH to Host Community Luncheons for Faith Leaders
Presentation and Roundtable Discussion: What is the role of Spiritual Care in Hospice?
(February 15, 2023) - Treasure Coast Hospice will hold two community luncheons for local clergy, rabbis, and lay ministers to learn more about hospice’s philosophy of care and how it brings comfort and peace at the end of life. Treasure Coast Hospice Medical Director Rose Guilbe, MD, HMDC, FAAHPM, will present insightful information and facilitate an interactive discussion with Treasure Coast Hospice chaplains about the role of spiritual care in hospice. The luncheons will be held at Treasure Coast Hospice offices on Thursday, March 16, 1201 SE Indian Street, Stuart, 12 pm to 1:30 pm, and Tuesday, March 21, 5000 Dunn Road, Ft. Pierce, 12 pm to 1:30 pm.
“Spiritual care is an important part of hospice’s holistic approach to patient-centered care,” said Treasure Coast Hospice CEO Jackie Kendrick, CHPCA. “Having meaningful conversations about the role of spiritual care in hospice will allow us to strengthen our partnerships with local faith leaders so that together we can help those we serve navigate the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of someone facing an advanced illness.”
Chaplains, or spiritual care coordinators, are trained to provide emotional and spiritual support to seriously ill patients of all faiths. Spiritual care can help patients find meaning in their lives, cope with difficult emotions, and ease physical symptoms associated with serious illness.
Clergy and lay leaders of all faiths are invited to attend the March luncheons:
Thursday, March 16, Treasure Coast Hospice, 1201 SE Indian Street, Stuart; noon to 1:30 pm.
Tuesday, March 21, Treasure Coast Hospice, 5000 Dunn Road, Ft. Pierce; noon to 1:30 pm.
