  • Administration of the sacraments.
  • Visiting with and addressing the special needs of the elderly, the depressed, the lonely and the terminally ill.
  • Offering prayers of comfort with patients and/or their families upon request.
  • Helping caregivers make decisions based on the highest ethical standards.
  • Serving as palliative care consultants.
  • Assisting patients and families with advance directives.
  • Supporting caregivers through trauma processing.
