The spiritual counselors see themselves as partners in conversation with patients as well as their relatives and the co-workers of the hospital. They are open to encounter people, to support and guide them. Together with patients, relatives and staff, they want to search for comfort and meaning.
Inside the General Hospital of Celle, counseling is offered by the Evangelical and the Catholic Church to all people in the facility irrespective of their faith or confession. The counselors themselves are aware of their own confessional identity as they offer their services in ecumenical solidarity and acknowledging other religious and ideological views.
They are supported by some volunteers.
If you wish to be visited or to meet with them it is helpful to direct yourself directly to them, either personally, by phone or in writing. You may also inform other hospital staff asking them to inform them of your wishes. Meetings may take place in the rooms, at your station, in the office or in our “room of silence”.
