The Spiritual Care Department at HSL is committed to creating a culture of vibrant and pluralistic Jewish life, in the context of more diverse patient and resident communities. Our staff have particular expertise in the spiritual care of older adults, dementia, end-of-life decision making, care surrounding dying, and bereavement support for residents, patients, staff, and family members of all traditions and backgrounds. Chaplains serve in long term chronic hospital (LTCH), medical acute, post acute, palliative, and memory supportive care. Chaplains lead Jewish and Christian religious services, and educational programming for staff and LTCH patients.
The Hebrew SeniorLife/Hebrew Rehabilitation Center (HSL/HRC) CPE Program offers ACPE-accredited, experiential, spiritual care education centered around Jewish content and process, with a special focus on older adults. Our CPE program promotes the integration of students' personal history, spiritual and religious traditions, ethics, and the behavioral sciences in the practice of spiritual care. In collaboration with the Spiritual Care Department, the program provides spiritual care to residents and patients, their families, and staff, as well as offering spiritual care in select community settings. The program welcomes committed learners and practitioners from a variety of spiritual and religious traditions: rabbinical and cantorial students, seminarians of all faiths, clergy, laypersons, and healthcare professionals.
In the spirit of tikkun olam, the program is committed to teaching its students to provide high quality spiritual care to the older adults in our care, drawing on respect for others' beliefs and practices, based on cultural humility, and informed by best practices as shown by research.
Through our program, we are creating leaders for the next generation of clergy, professional chaplains, and ACPE Certified Educators who are committed to serving older adults, Jews, the nonreligious, and other marginalized groups.
HSL/HRC CPE is an accredited program of ACPE: The Standard for Spiritual Care and Education, and offers Level I and Level II CPE.
