“Some people may just need a person to sit and be present with them,” explained BAYADA Hospice Spiritual Support Counselor Constance Moser, M.Div. Moser began working in hospice care four years ago. She is part of a multidisciplinary team that cares for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of individuals at the end of life.
While all hospice team members are essential in ensuring a patient and their family experience quality of life, October 19 begins Pastoral Care Week, a week to highlight the myriad ways spiritual caregivers provide support to the members of our communities. Even though she is an ordained Protestant pastor, Moser provides spiritual support to individuals of all different faiths, and often those who don’t have a specific faith at all.
