Hospice chaplains are professional clergy who are well-versed in the spiritual needs of both patients and families going through the end-of-life experience. If desired by the patient, they provide support based on the patient’s personal beliefs, no matter what religion, and can serve as a link to a faith community.

The role of a hospice chaplain is crucial. The hospice chaplain provides spiritual care and comfort to patients, caregivers, family, and friends. The hospice chaplain walks with patients and their families providing incredible levels of spiritual and emotional care.

The hospice chaplain is an integral member of the hospice team. The chaplain is a professional who plans, assesses, and cares for a patient’s spiritual needs throughout the end-of-life process. Hospice chaplains never promote religion or seek to convert.

AOH cares. Their professional staff cared for my wife baby and me. They walked with me through her sickness, death, and still check in on me.
