Justin Williams is the Senior CommUnity Care PACE Chaplain that provides for the spiritual health of our participants. Spiritual care services can include prayer, spiritual and Biblical education, Biblical counseling, grief support, encouragement, coordination of local church involvement, end-of-life care, bereavement care, and facilitation of memorial services for deceased participants.
Senior CommUnity Care PACE recognizes that spirituality and faith is an important aspect of a person’s life. Unfortunately, many older adults in the community have difficulty obtaining transportation to their local church and their spiritual care is set aside. Because Senior CommUnity Care PACE provides care for the whole person, non-denominational church services are performed in the Day Center for those who wish to attend. PACE Church is facilitated by the Chaplain and includes a time for prayer requests, the singing of hymns and praise songs, and Biblical education.
The Chaplain is a member of the Senior CommUnity Care PACE End-of-Life Care team who meet weekly to report and address the needs of participants who are at the end of their life. The Chaplain can provide home visits and phone calls offering spiritual care to the participant and family. The Chaplain can assist with funeral planning as well as grief support.
