Pastoral Care

Christian Roots, Caring Community

Our Christian faith is at the root of everything we do here at VMP Healthcare & Community Living. We believe that every stage of life should be glorified and our team of chaplains are here to provide that support and celebration. Whatever your denomination, you will find peace in our beautiful chapel or within one of our small group bible studies.

VMP has also created an Ethics Consultation team to best support our residents and families during challenging periods. With years of experience, they are skilled at presenting options while honoring wishes. Just a phone call away, they are prepared to handle those challenging conversations.

Our chaplains hold regular full-time office hours and are here to help you with advice, support, and pastoral education.


CPE (Clinical Pastoral Education) Program

In addition to supporting VMP residents and families, our chaplains offer a fully accredited CPE program year-round. This intensive training program provides experiences within our rich learning environment of the senior spectrum of aging adults. Both in-person and virtual opportunities are available.
