Spiritual Care

We’re Here For You

When life becomes challenging, it’s important to have the support you need to discover your inner resources, connect with meaning, and find the strength to move forward. Aurora Spiritual Care offers compassionate specialists who listen and guide individuals and their loved ones through some of life’s toughest times.


Spirituality can fulfill our need for connection, meaning and purpose in life – and help us find our way in unexpected circumstances.

Regardless of your spiritual or religious affiliation, Aurora Health Care is here for you as you face challenging decisions and turning points, await procedures and diagnoses and share your questions and heartfelt concerns.

All Aurora hospitals, including Zilber Family Hospice and Aurora Health at Home Hospice, provide spiritual care and support resources to patients and their families. Call your hospital’s general number, or ask your nurse to connect you with a chaplain.

Emotional Support Services

In times of crisis and uncertainty, it can be difficult to cope on your own. Aurora Health Care chaplains are available to listen and provide a supportive presence, with respect for your own faith tradition, lifestyle and emotional needs.

Our chaplains are advanced-degreed professionals with specialized training in responding to the unique questions and challenges that surface in a health care setting.
