Bereavement Care

The death of someone close creates a range of feelings and emotions. Grief is natural but can be very painful. We are here to support you through this difficult time.

Although family and friends can be of support, many people find it helpful to talk to someone who is on the “outside” of their life as they make sense of what has happened and begin to adjust to their loss. We also have help and information around practical matters that can affect people following bereavement.

One-to-one support is available from our Bereavement Care Team, offering you a safe space to talk about and explore your feelings. This can be either in the form of face to face counselling in weekly appointments or held via telephone or Zoom.

Support can be provided to a family – depending on your wishes and needs.

Bereavement Support Group meetings – for some people, the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation is really helpful. Our group is both friendly and supportive and meets at the Hospice every Monday mornings (except bank holidays) from 9:30am to 10:30am. Before attending, please discuss your support needs with us via phone on 01325 254321.

Keeping in touch – When someone whom the Hospice has cared for dies, we keep in touch with family and friends through the post (unless they do not wish this).

Our service is open to adults when someone close to them has died due to a life-limiting illness where they received some form of care from St Teresa’s Hospice.

Please contact the Hospice on 01325 254321 or email and ask to speak to a member of the Bereavement Care Team for more information.

We have pulled together a guide of what to do if you’re recently bereaved that you may find useful. It can be downloaded on the link below.
