“One Heart, Many Hands” is the tagline for Josephine and also reflects how we provide spiritual and emotional care at Josephine.
We believe that all residents experience the sacred in diverse ways. Carefully listening to each resident and what inspires hope and meaning in their lives, we affirm their experience and respond by providing various practices and opportunities to nurture their spiritual wellbeing. As reflected in Josephine’s vision statement, “no one is left uncared for”.
