Caregiver and Spiritual Support

We are all faced with moments in our lives where we rely on the support and guidance of those around us. At the Lutheran Home and Harwood Place we provide this support to our residents and families through our Spiritual Support team (Chaplaincy) and Director of Caregiver Support.
