Bereavement Services

Bereavement services

When a significant person in our life dies, whether a relative or friend, it can be one of the most challenging experiences we face. Bereavement services offers supportive and emotional care to those who are coping with such losses. Information to help you when someone dies can be dowloaded here.

"Thank you so much for your continued support. It really is appreciated. I can (now) smile and laugh remembering the things we did. Yet shed a few tears at the things we can’t do. I’m learning to find
the balance."

Loss is a personal experience and we express it in our own way. For some people, having the opportunity to talk to someone who is not connected to their family or friends can be helpful. This is offered by individuals who have the capacity to listen in a sensitive, open and unbiased way.

Our service is available to all relatives and friends of any patient who has been supported as an in-patient in the hospice, or by a Macmillan Nurse either in hospital or in the community. 

Our services include:

Annual memorial services are also held each spring and winter to provide meaningful occasions for remembering someone

For more information please go to resources where you will find a list of national and local organisations, recommended reading and helpful information on what to do when someone dies.

"My grief still stays with me but I am now able to smile, laugh, and look forward to life not back."
