Spiritual support available
Spiritual support is offered at Dorothy House because spirituality can play a significant part in the journey that patients and families take when a life is ending.
Our team is made up of people from varying backgrounds and spirituality. There is a full time Spiritual Team Lead based at Winsley and also one-to-one and on-call provision available to the whole Dorothy House community.
A life-limiting diagnosis can raise many questions and concerns; the Spiritual Support Team is available to respond to specific need and are there to offer a listening ear and an opportunity to explore the journey ahead, for anyone who wishes. The support is accessible, accepting and responsive to all life situations and is offered to all.
Everyone is welcome to spend time in the Beacon at Winsley (formerly known as The Chapel) if you wish to think, reflect, contemplate, retreat pray or meditate. It’s a quiet space that offers hope to those who are seeking spiritual accompaniment on their journey. It’s both a multi-faith and no-faith place that is open to all. The Beacon is a light within Dorothy House and a light outwards, visible to those looking for help and guidance.
Serenity is a short online session that is broadcasted on Facebook each week. The sessions offer a time for reflection and quiet, giving you a little break from your day and space to think.
