Compassus – Payson Recognizes Local Chaplain During Pastoral Care Week

The Compassus program serving Payson and the surrounding areas recognizes Chaplain Harley Faber during Pastoral Care Week, October 22-28, 2017, for providing the highest level of spiritual care and guidance for hospice patients and their families. Faber has been working at Compassus since December 2013.

“We are proud to recognize Harley’s tireless efforts to provide a meaningful end-of-life experience through compassionate support and exceptional spiritual counseling to our patients and their families,” said Mary Jane Rogers, executive director for Compassus – Payson. “In addition to his positive and caring attitude, exceptional ability to understand and comfort patients, and willingness to support colleagues, Harley also shares his gift of music with our program and brings joy to all who listen. As part of the We Honor Veterans program, he does a remarkable job leading the final bedside salutes for our veterans in hospice and in the community.  He also performs at celebrations of life and weddings for the families of our patients. Harley shares his heart and soul with everyone he meets and we are so honored to have him on 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 – Payson 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.
