Spiritual Care

Spiritual Care embraces a holistic approach, attending to an individual’s beliefs, values, behaviours and experiences related to spirituality, religion, culture and/or transcendence in an effort to develop relatedness, wholeness, healing, meaning and purpose.

Spiritual Care is applied through assessment/identification and treatment/support specific to the person (individual and community). Spiritual and cultural values are often presented in intermingled fashions. Basic understandings of various culture’s beliefs/values/world views enhance understanding and appreciation of each person’s unique identity.
