"It is just a year since my wife died but I'm very mindful of the care I received from the nurses telling me I was in their thoughts, and they would always be there should I need them. The last year has not been easy, but I have got through it. However, it is good to know that I can turn to you for support if things get really difficult. 


Family/Bereavement Support

Our Family support service provides someone who can listen to those suffering bereavement or pre-bereavement.  We can provide emotional support at a time and interval that suits you. 

We offer support for those caring for loved ones with a life limiting illness and our trained volunteers understand the feelings of grief and loss associated with bereavement.

This service is free of charge and there is no need to have had any prior contact with the hospice.  People wishing to access the service can contact us directly or via healthcare professional.  Initial contact will be from our Family Support coordinator to have a chat about your support needs and plan ongoing support which will be delivered via our dedicated volunteers with extensive training and backgrounds in bereavement support.  Appointments will be predominantly telephone consultations.

For more information on our Family/Bereavement Support service or to self refer, please call us directly on T. 01665 606515 or T. 01289 309997
