Spiritual Care

  • "Our family would like to thank everyone involved in my husband's care. You helped us to fulfill his final wish and make his final journey from home. You are all amazing and special; you took great care of him as well as his family."

  • "Your caring staff is so valuable to families during critical times. Your support is very comforting and appreciated. We are truly grateful."

  • "We were blessed with the loving care you gave our Dad. The nurse was great and treated him like he was part of her family. We are forever grateful for all of you. Thank you."

  • "To the Hospice folks, words cannot express our thanks and appreciation for your tender touch and loving professionalism during our Dad's illness. We will always remember our nurse's expert skills and abilities as well as her personal touch. "

  • "We want to thank everyone who cared for our Mother. Everyone was so nice and caring and went over and beyond what we could have hoped for. Thank you all."

At CareFirst, we acknowledge that an individual’s grief is often impacted by his or her spiritual belief system: Religion can be a source of strength for some, while others may find it to be a roadblock on the grief path.

CareFirst understands that an individual determines his or her own religious and spiritual belief system, and that each individual’s definition of what provides spiritual strength differs.

Always starting with that very individual definition, CareFirst strives to meet needs, explore ideas, and help find strength. We do this both within CareFirst as well as through collaboration with community members.
