Provide Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels is a community service effort provided by Logansport Memorial Hospital. Meals on Wheels are available to community residents who are unable to prepare adequate meals for themselves due to illness, disability or age.  We prepare hot meals for lunch and cold meals for dinner.  Volunteers deliver the meals to clients before lunch Monday through Friday.  Meals are not delivered on major holidays.

Minister as a Volunteer Chaplain

An important part of patient care at Logansport Memorial Hospital is meeting the spiritual needs of our patients. Volunteer Chaplains help address the spiritual and religious concerns raised by families during hospitalization.  Volunteer chaplains are clergy or lay leaders who are ordained, credentialed, appointed and trained by their respective religious bodies.
 
Chaplains are an important part of the health care team and maybe involved through:

  • pastoral visitation and crisis intervention;
  • spiritual assessment of a case;
  • offering a prayer or blessing;
  • administration of religious rites or sacraments (baptism, dedication of child, communion);
  • ongoing pastoral support for long term cases;
  • pastoral care during the dying process;
  • spiritual support, counsel, guidance;
  • ethical consultation; and
  • referral to a clergyperson of the family's faith group.

 
Volunteer Chaplains typically serve in one of three capacities:

  1. Designate a regular time commitment each week (between two and four hours) on a regular day to make visitations for spiritual assessment and pastoral support.
  2. Be on-call, when the staff chaplain is not available.
  3. Participate in our Bereavement Support programs.
