Bereavement Support

Our bereavement support services are an important part of the overall service we offer both to those that are living with the life-limiting illness and for those that have to cope with grief after loss.

Our team of Clinical Psychologists, Psychotherapists, and Counsellors based at the Hospice, are compassionate professionals trained to provide berevement services in these difficult circumstances.

The care we provide does not end when the person dies.

The death of a significant person in our lives can be one of the most difficult and overwhelming experiences we ever face. We are here to support you through your bereavement.

Sometimes it can feel difficult to confide in family and friends about the extent of your grief, especially if that person is also dealing with their own grief. You may feel like you need to talk to people ‘outside’ of your personal life who are experienced in talking to grieving people and can offer professional bereavement support.

We can provide one-to-one bereavement support if you have experienced the loss of someone who was being cared for by Rowans Hospice, or by one of the local community or hospital palliative care teams.

If you would like to know more about this you can call the Rowans Bereavement Service Administrator directly on: 02392 238 537.

If the person who died wasn’t known to the Hospice or local palliative care teams, you can ask your GP for a referral to our Psychology Service.
