Spiritual & Religious Care

Our most important goal is to create a safe environment for the patient, or family member, to discover their own inner resources for healing and growth.

We work with people’s religious beliefs and religious rituals. Given the diversity of our patient population, we are adept at connecting patients with faith leaders from their traditions. If desired, we will bring in the appropriate spiritual or religious practitioner, for example, an indigenous elder, imam or rabbi. Sacramental ministry for Roman Catholic patients is provided by the Archdiocese of Toronto.

Our professionals offer therapeutic intervention, including psychotherapy, provide thorough clinical documentation and are valued members of clinical teams. We are affiliated with the Canadian Association for Spiritual Care, and are dedicated to improving the quality of life for people experiencing spiritual, moral and existential distress because of changes in health and life circumstances.

Patients and families can ask a member of their healthcare team to arrange a visit from a member of our team.
