Bereavement support for adults

COVID-19 UPDATE: Please be assured that the wellbeing of all our patients, hospice visitors, volunteers and staff is our top priority and we are taking all necessary precautions to keep our services open for the people who need us most. Due to the current Coronavirus pandemic, many of our Bereavement Help Points are closed but we are currently offering support in Rugeley and Tamworth as well as online Bereavement Help Point sessions. Details for these are listed below.

Bereavement Help Points

Many of us find talking about dying hard because we’re afraid of saying the wrong thing. But we know from experience that talking about death can be incredibly positive.

If you are experiencing or have experienced bereavement (regardless of how long ago), you will be made very welcome at our Bereavement Help Points. 

There will be information on coping with both the practical and emotional aspects of losing a relative or friend, a chance to chat over a cup of tea with one of our support volunteers and perhaps meet others in a similar situation. For more information, please call us on 01543 434536.
