Spiritual Care, Guidance, and Support.
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. Learn more today. Just use the form on this page.
Springpoint chaplains are an important community resource, offering not just traditional religious services and ceremonies, but offering nondenominational 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:
- To support individuals and our communities during times of transition
- To offer and provide spiritual companionship to all residents throughout the continuum of care
- To honor all faiths through a variety of worship experiences and celebrations
- To foster opportunities for continuing creative and spiritual exploration
Our staff of trained chaplains provides a variety of services and programs to meet these standards including:
- Individual counseling, support groups, and spiritual companionship and support during times of personal transition
- On-site worship experiences for the variety of religious traditions represented in the community
- Spiritual education and discussion groups reflecting the interests and needs of the community
- Open, inclusive and welcoming to all, where confidentiality is always respected and honored
The Springpoint Foundation launched a Spiritual Care Campaign in March 2020 to support the construction of the new Interfaith Center at The Oaks at Denville. The Interfaith Center provides residents with a non-denominational space for spiritual care services, activities, and programs. It is our hope that residents from different faiths and backgrounds feel welcomed when they walk through the doors. We understand the importance of providing an environment that enhances resident’s physical, intellectual, and spiritual growth so that they can better prepare for life’s changes and transitions.
“Sean [Flood, Director of Major and Planned Gifts] and Donna [Rankin, The Oaks resident and member of the Spiritual Care Advisory Committee] did a wonderful job, and without them and our many donors and volunteers, this project would have never come to fruition. I am thankful to all our residents for putting in their time to make this wonderful gift to our community possible.” – Chaplain Kim Baumgartner
“Religion is so very important, and it’s nice to have a universal space now where everyone can come and meditate however they wish. It’s especially nice to have some privacy in a place that’s typically very busy.” – Dr. Tom Emmer, The Oaks resident and member of the Spiritual Care Committee
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. 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: “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
