Compassus – Bay City Recognizes Local Chaplain During Pastoral Care Week

The Compassus program serving Bay City and the surrounding areas recognizes Chaplain Kelly Iseman during Pastoral Care Week, October 22-28, 2017, for providing the highest level of spiritual care and guidance for hospice patients and their families. Iseman has been working at Compassus since 2016.

“We are proud to recognize Kelly’s tireless efforts to provide compassionate support and exceptional spiritual counseling to our patients and their families,” said Kelly Hamilton, executive director for Compassus – Bay City. “Hospice chaplains offer spiritual support – directly or in collaboration with a patient’s or family’s own clergy or spiritual counselor – to provide a more meaningful end-of-life experience. Kelly’s kindness has touched the hearts and lives of countless people. Her positive and caring attitude, exceptional ability to understand and comfort patients, and willingness to support colleagues makes her an integral part of our Compassus team.”

Regardless of spiritual, religious or cultural background, Pastoral Care Week celebrates those who provide spiritual support to those receiving hospice or palliative care wherever they call home and in many other settings including hospitals, long-term care facilities and nursing homes.

Compassus – Bay City will recognize local pastoral care providers next week by presenting them with framed certificates of appreciation for their dedication to the patients and families they serve.
