DID YOU KNOW RIVERVIEW HEALTHCARE HAS A SPIRITUALITY DEPARTMENT?
At Riverview, we believe that providing for a person’s emotional and spiritual needs is an important part of meeting their healthcare needs. Our spirituality department is committed to providing spiritual care by helping our residents utilize their faith to promote healing. We also believe that nurturing the spirit is an integral part of resident care and quality of life. Our facility chaplain provides counseling and spiritual guidance for residents, their families, and staff. Our chaplain also provides memorial services, hospital visitation, resident home visits after discharge, and leads weekly bible studies, worship services, and prayer groups.
