My name is Alison Brody and I am a Community Chaplain.
I am endorsed by The Humanist Society and have worked and volunteered in hospitals, nursing homes, and prisons in the New York area.
As a Chaplain I bring the collective values of our communities within institutions such as hospitals, nursing homes, prisons, military settings, schools, non-profit programs, police departments, and universities; I am always hoping to engage with people from any faith tradition.
I talk with people about end-of-life questions, concerns, and planning. I also talk with people after the death of a loved-one, offering support and, when wanted, an opportunity to reflect and consider beliefs about death.
For a little over 40 years I have been a community social worker in New York City, in programs with people living on the streets, in public hospitals, and in community-based organizations.
I studied at Seminary in the 1980s, and years later was ordained through Mesifta Adath Wolkowisk.
I am registered as a marriage officiant in New York City, and meet with couples to discuss their readiness to marry, prepare for commitment ceremonies, and to officiate at weddings.
As a chaplain, I am glad to visit people in hospitals or nursing homes, to exchange letters with individuals who are incarcerated, and to talk with people in person or by phone about various concerns.
- preparing living wills and healthcare proxies;
- questions about putting values and preferences into daily practice;
- end-of-life choices...
