October time to observe pastoral care at HRHS

Angela DeVore has served as coordinator of pastoral care at HRMC since 2014, and her job description may include patient and family support for serious medical events, including heart attacks, trauma and most emergency care situations. She sums up her job as providing comfort care to both patients and family members.

For Angela, pastoral care is what she calls a “lifetime calling” and recalls how, as a child, she had a special place in her heart for anyone not feeling well and was moved to visit hospitalized friends.

Pastoral care services at HRHS are voluntary for our patients and are not associated with a specific faith or religious organization.

During the admission process, patients are given the option to state religious affiliation and church membership. At HRMC, several churches check admission records daily to determine patients who have designated their affiliation and requested pastoral visitors.

On any given day, Angela’s time is divided evenly between crises calls, which may include patients entered as a result of a trauma, and end-of-life decisions, which she calls “comfort care.” Patients sometimes seek her counsel in getting their life in order and healing broken relationships, while family members may seek spiritual comfort and guidance.
