Spiritual Care Services
The spiritual care team is an integral part of the health care team at Windsor Regional Hospital.
Clinically trained Chaplains offer emotional and spiritual support, crisis intervention, counseling, presence, supportive listening, encouragement and celebration to bring comfort to patients, families and staff during their stay in the hospital. Religious care is offered through prayer and ritual. In addition, chaplains can help connect individuals with community faith groups. Chaplains also provide religious care through prayer, perinatal memorial services and rituals.
In the event that there is a palliative patient and there are family members spending many hours with their loved ones, there are three hospitality carts stocked with snacks and refreshments at each campus that the staff can provide to the family.
