As long as we live, they too will live; for they are now a part of us as long as we remember them…
— Sylvan Kamens & Rabbi Jack Riemer
We are blessed to have our chaplain…
Cantor Donna Faye Marcus, who provides spiritual support for each patient and their family, and also serves as our Chaplain and Manager of Spiritual and Bereavement Services.
Our professional team has been educated in the religious traditions and culture of Judaism and the Jewish people. They are familiar with the unique needs and concerns of Jewish patients and their families, and are appreciative of and sensitive to the diversity of Jewish expression within the Jewish community. In addition, our chaplain has been trained to provide Spiritual Care to all religions.
This support does not end after your loved one’s death. Hospice care is not only for the dying patient.
Our staff continues to support those who are grieving and provide education, support and resources for at least 13 months after the death of a loved one.
Bereavement support groups can help…
Coping with loss is discussed in a supportive and confidential environment, facilitated by experienced grief specialists. Topics include dealing with loneliness, understanding the grieving process, adjusting to life without a loved one, taking next steps and finding meaning and reinvesting in life. Call or email Cantor Marcus to find out when the next Bereavement Support Group is scheduled.
