Pastoral Care

A study conducted by Home Health Care News, shows:

  • 70% of Americans believe some form of spirituality should
    be part of their healthcare.
  • 72% responded that their spiritual needs were only minimally
    met or not supported by the medical system.

This increasing interest in whole-person care, including body, mind and spirit, supports the need for pastoral care in the community. United Methodist Communities chaplains:

  • Assist with bringing clarity to the spiritual needs of clients in
    community settings;
  • Offer professional, skilled and compassionate guidance and
    support; and
  • Partner with local pastors in supporting clients.
