本願寺津村別院にて病床にある方の側でスピリチュアルケアをされるビハーラ僧の方と充実した時間を過ごさせていただきました。米国のホスピスでのご家族へのサポートについてお話させていただき、Q&Aでは現場でご家族に寄り添われている方々の貴重な体験談などを伺いました。本願寺はハワイでも色々とお付き合いがあり、今回はそのご縁でお邪魔することになりました。

Dr. Morita was invited to speak to a very special order of monks at the Honpa Hongwanji Tsumura Betsuin. Dr. Morita’s lecture and slideshow discussed how the American system deals with “Family Care in Hospice in the United States.” This order of Vihara monks was especially interested in this topic as they often found themselves having to address patients at the end-of-life and families whose loved ones have recently departed.
