Spiritual Care

Our Spiritual Care Team offer bespoke support for patients, their families, friends and carers from all backgrounds and faiths.

We offer support tailored to each person’s individual needs and what is meaningful to them.

Our Spiritual Care Team

Spirituality is a personal journey to finding purpose, meaning and happiness. It may be through practicing religion, taking part in cultural activities, or through other non-faith based mediums –  or it could be a combination of all of these. Your spiritual needs are as important as your mental, emotional, and physical health.

Our Spiritual Care Team includes trained colleagues and volunteers from various backgrounds and faiths. As a team, we focus on providing emotional and spiritual support for patients, their families and carers. Their aim is to offer bespoke holistic care to each person to support them in their individual journey.

We support people of every faith and belief, as well as to those of no religious belief. We also have links with local representatives from various faith and belief groups.

You are not alone, we are here for you – to listen to you, and to be with you.

If you would like to see someone from the Spiritual Care Team  ask one of the Nursing or Reception Team to get in touch or call 0121 472 1191

Spiritual Care Rooms

We have dedicated Spiritual Care Rooms at both our Selly Park and Erdington hospices located in our Inpatient Units.

The room is available for patients, their families, friends and carers and can be a place for prayers, reflection, mediation and quiet.

The Book of Remembrance is also kept here.

In this room we have various resources from different faiths and beliefs for you to use if needed.

There is a Wudu Room at our Selly Park hospice for those who wish to use it.

I support our patients on their journey to explore what gives them hope, strength, comfort, meaning and peace through the difficult moments they face, this in turn supports their mental wellbeing."
