Spiritual expression can come in many forms. Because we are such diverse people and our communities are so unique, we realize that each person’s spirituality may look very different. The Springpoint Foundation provides emotional and spiritual support to residents through our Spiritual Care Programs under the guidance of our chaplains. These programs reflect and celebrate many faith traditions and are one of the most trusted resources offered by the Foundation.
The Springpoint chaplains are an important community resource, offering not just traditional religious services and ceremonies but offering non-denominational discussion groups, learning, meditation and more. They help residents develop inner resources and spiritual strength to better prepare for life’s changes and transitions.
We are fortunate to have our own Spiritual Care Team at Springpoint Senior Living. This team of chaplains has developed and supports the following core standards:
Our staff of trained chaplains provides a variety of services and programs to meet these standards including:
The Resident Experience: “All of our experiences with Springpoint have been favorable. The fact that they have continuing spiritual support for the residents is very important to us. The multitude of services available to us is pleasant and inspiring. Having worship services on site is convenient and helpful. One of Chaplain Carole’s strong points is that she keeps in touch with people and makes them aware of what is available. She also runs a bible study which is well attended and productive.
The idea that we can help to continue the Spiritual Care Program, particularly having a chaplain on site, is something both my wife and I support.” – Jean and Thomas Bateman, The Atrium at Navesink Harbor
The Resident Experience: “I support the Spiritual Care Program because I think it is essential to have someone available in the community who everyone can talk to. Our Chaplain Linda does a dynamite job; she is so upbeat and she is always here whenever we need her. It doesn’t matter what your religion is, you can confide in her. Everyone knows her and alot of people feel very comfortable with her.” – Emory Turnure, Crestwood Manor
The Resident Experience: “Monroe Village is the place I will live for the rest of my life. I know this because I believe in and support the Springpoint Foundation’s mission that will help those residents who, through no fault of their own, have exhausted their resources so that we will always have a home here.
It is truly the most wonderful gift that others before us have supported and that I continue to do my part and support as well. It is this sense of caring for each other that creates a feeling of security for all of us.” – Roselyn Katz, Monroe Village
