Synopsis

A professional how-to book for pastoral care providers.

The pastoral care service can be an important part of holistic caregiving for the dying. A comprehensive palliative care program must address spiritual issues as well as medical and practical ones.

Written from a non-denominational perspective, this book covers general principles of pastoral care with an emphasis on hospital ministry. While intended for a professional pastoral audience, this book could also be of value to hospice volunteers and other caregivers to the dying who make frequent hospital or home visits to multiple patients.

Reimer is a UCC minister and Wagner is listed as the director of Pastoral Care at Shands Hospital, University of Florida.
