Compassus – Baton Rouge Recognizes Local Chaplain During Pastoral Care Week

The Compassus program serving Baton Rouge and the surrounding areas recognizes Chaplain Michael Mann during Pastoral Care Week, October 22-28, 2017, for providing the highest level of spiritual care and guidance for hospice patients and their families. Mann has been working at Compassus since June 2017.

“We are proud to recognize Michael’s tireless efforts to provide compassionate support and exceptional spiritual counseling to our patients and their families,” said Robin Landry, director of clinical services for Compassus – Baton Rouge. “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. Michael’s positive and caring attitude, exceptional ability to understand and comfort patients, and willingness to support colleagues makes him 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 – Baton Rouge 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.
