Spiritual Care and Bereavement
At Chapman House, we have both a Spiritual Care Coordinator and a Spiritual Care Provider. These staff respect and honour the faith traditions belief systems and wishes of each resident. The resident may decline Spiritual Care visits at any time. With the resident’s permission they will provide emotional support and spiritual care. They can also facilitate bringing in a minister, pastor, rabbi, priest, imam, or traditional healer that you either already have a connection with or one that you would like to create. Spiritual Care also provides support to our staff and volunteers.
Chapman House is able to accommodate practices such as smudging and incenses when requested by residents or loved ones.
Our Bereavement staff also offers community support through our Grief Group. This group provides a safe space to explore and understand the grieving process that they are experiencing in the days, weeks, and months after the loss of a loved one. It takes place once a week for 6 weeks at Chapman House, is free of cost, and is open to anyone in the community experiencing grief. Find our more below.
