Hospitals and Hospices

Our Sacred Dying Vigil Program equips staff and volunteers with a solid knowledge of how to vigil in all circumstances. This training brings to their patients the assurance that the vigilers will comfort them throughout the dying process.

If you are a hospital or hospice and want to start a Vigil Program, please contact us. We offer trainings in Sacred Dying Vigiling. Our team will meet with you and arrange to do an on-site training for your staff and your volunteers. We work with the leadership of your institution, arrange publicity, and provide you with the tools for launching a successful program. 

If your hospital or hospice already has a vigil program in place, we are happy to offer our Online Vigil Training for your education database. Sacred Dying is licensed by the State of California to offer 10 CEUs to nurses, social workers, counselors, and chaplains. It's a good way to get the entire staff on board with this important work.
