October 15-21, 2017 is Pastoral Care Week, a time to recognize those who
provide spiritual support to our patients and residents in the hospital,
long term care facility or hospice settings. Our spiritual care team represents
the many faith communities in our area and are trained to provide spiritual
support regardless of faith tradition. We thank our 32 volunteer chaplains,
associate chaplains, and abiders who volunteer their time and talent as
part of our care team at Campbell County Health.
On-Call Chaplains and Abiders are available at Campbell County Health to
provide spiritual care and emotional support whenever they are needed—providing
24/7 coverage to Campbell County Memorial Hospital, The Legacy Living
& Rehabilitation Center and Close to Home Hospice House and every
CCH facility. Campbell County Health's volunteer Chaplains and Abiders
are an important part of the healthcare team dedicated to "Whole-person" healing.
For those who don’t know, Chaplains provide spiritual support and
care to patients, residents, families, and staff at Campbell County Memorial
Hospital, and are trained to support people of all spirituality—even
to those who may have no spirituality.
The Abider team is trained to offer presence and care to our patients and
residents who are actively dying and may not have support—the program's
goal is to make sure that no one dies alone.
CCH also has a HEART team, which is an interdisciplinary team of employees
and chaplains in our health system who provide critical incident stress
support to the employees of Campbell County Health.
