Spiritual care

When we care about a person's well-being, we care for more than just their physical well-being. Spiritual care is one part of the many ways we can help.

Our spiritual care is for everyone, regardless of religious belief or faith.

In times of illness, we know that people find themselves asking more questions about life. People ask “why me?” and they wonder what the future will hold in times of unexpected and unwelcome change. More time is spent in deep thought, focusing on hopes and fears, as well as trying to understand the changes that are happening in your life.

That's where we come in.

In some of our centres we have an in-house chaplain service, with visiting chaplains and clergy in many of our others.

Our chaplains are members of our professional team and are there to support you, your family and your carers, regardless of your faith or belief.

They can help by being:

  • a listening ear to all of your concerns
  • there to help you with issues that arise from serious illness
  • able to address any religious needs you may have
  • able to put you in contact with a representative from another faith or view

Please contact your local Sue Ryder Centre for more information on specific services.
