Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, said, "The primary needs of the terminally ill are spiritual. More than anything else the dying need meaning, hope and love." They are also looking for acceptance, an ultimate spiritual source and for dignity.
Spirituality is awareness and connection to a higher power or divine presence, a harmonious relationship or a connection with self, nature, or community, enabling a person to discover the essence of their being.
VITAS Volunteers can assist with spiritual care by...
-Being present with the patient and family
