PASTORAL CARE VOLUNTEER
Harrington Healthcare follows CDC Social Distancing Guidelines and provides necessary personal protective equipment.
The Pastoral Care Program of Volunteer Services' focus is to demonstrate through compassionate care our concern for the patient as a whole person. This includes not just the body but also the soul, mind, spirit, emotions, and the human relationships important to the patient. All denominations are welcome.
Pastoral Care Volunteers would actively collaborate with the Pastoral Care Team Leader toward facilitating opportunities for healing through listening, prayer, support, scripture, requested appropriate rituals/rites to patients, families, and staff.
Volunteers should be available at least one shift a week (typically 2-4 hours) and able to respond to calls requesting compassionate pastoral care services (listening, prayer, support, scripture, requested appropriate rituals/rites, etc).
