Spiritual and Emotional Support
Going to the hospital can often cause one concern as well as disrupt
normal activities of your life. Some people are often able to use their
thoughts, feelings, beliefs and relationships as resources for coping
and healing, and can even grow spiritually stronger through the
experience. However, most people could use extra spiritual and emotional
support to assist them through this event in their lives.
It is common for patients to feel anxious, fearful, powerless, loss
of control, and distant from their loved ones or their God. It can often
be a time when one‘s spiritual beliefs intersect with the reality of
their lives and one may often experience spiritual distress in the midst
of their illness.
