Donors expand chaplaincy services for skilled nursing patients

The sound of her mother’s voice singing The Way of the Cross Leads Home filled Elsie’s ears one night as she lay in bed at Eskaton Care Center Fair Oaks.Elsie feels that Chaplain Frank is a good spiritual leader.

It was a prayer answered. Earlier that day, Elsie was distressed that she could not remember that song. Chaplain Frank prayed for her.

It happened that night. She heard her mother. Childhood memories of the whole family singing hymns at the dinner table back home in Mountain Home, Arkansas, came rushing back.

Now 88 years old, Elsie finds comfort in those songs, those memories, and her faith.

Diagnosed with breast cancer just two months ago, Elsie is surprisingly at peace. The doctor told her she might have two years.

“My cancer. It don’t scare me,” she says. “If He calls me, I am ready to go…I have no regrets.”

Elsie looks forward to her visits with Chaplain Frank. He introduced himself a few months ago, and they have been friends since. “He’s a good spiritual leader.”

“Through our interaction, I come away encouraged and joyful,” says Chaplain Frank, who comes to Eskaton Care Center Fair Oaks with the support of Eskaton Foundation.

Eskaton Chaplain Grand Bakewell works closely with Chaplain Frank.Each week, Chaplain Frank visits up to 15 skilled nursing and rehabilitation patients.

The spiritual care needs of the patients whom he visits include questioning the purpose of life and what happens after death, reconnecting with faith, coping with tragic experiences, and achieving forgiveness. Read more.
