Spiritual Care Service

Spiritual Care Services are provided by our Spiritual Care Coordinator.

Spirituality refers to the way we seek and express meaning and purpose. It is the way we experience our connectedness to ourselves, to family and other loved ones, our community, nature, work, creativity, to the moment, life and death, and to the significant or sacred. As spirituality is very personal and individual, spiritual care at Te Omanga Hospice is tailored to each person’s needs.

We will respect your culture, values and beliefs, choices, experiences and diversity.

Our Spiritual Care Coordinator offers an opportunity to reflect and explore ways of expressing any spiritual discomfort such as vulnerability, sadness, regrets, losses and equally to explore great loves, joys, hopes, friendships and all that has been the most precious to you.

Throughout the year our Spiritual Care Coordinator also assists with Remembrance Services, the Garden of Appreciation and other rituals requested by people, loved ones and staff.
