Pilgrims Hospices' Spiritual Care Awareness Month celebrates this vital part of hospice care.

When an individual is facing the end of their life, it’s natural that they may want to reflect on the meaning of their life – perhaps for the first time, or at a deeper level than they have done before. They may also want to think about death, loss and grief in new ways.

Spiritual needs can include:

  • The need to feel hope, peace and gratitude
  • The need for meaning and purpose in our lives
  • The need to feel a sense of belonging
  • The need to love and feel loved

At Pilgrims, we believe that spiritual care is an essential part of the holistic care we provide to patients, families and loved ones.
