Spiritual care

Spiritual care, support and guidance is an important part of the service that Karuna offers our patients and their families when they are faced with declining health, the end of life and loss. This care is provided by our counsellors and, where beneficial, ordained Buddhists. We can also assist in acquiring spiritual support from other traditions if needed.
