Bereavement Support is available at Dove Cottage Day Hospice. Most of us at some time in our lives will be faced with the death of someone we care deeply about. Mourning is the process of adapting to that loss. Unfortunately, in today’s world, death is often hidden from our daily lives and talked about less freely, often leading people to be un-prepared for coping with a bereavement when it happens to them.
No one can completely understand what another person’s grief is like. However, most people have experienced a similar situation. Speaking to someone who can empathise and listen is often a great help.
Bereavement support can be arranged for the carers and family of Dove Cottage guests. This can be through correspondence, telephone contact and drop-in sessions, or if you prefer, home visits.
Even if you do not need our services, please accept our sincere condolences for your loss.
For further information on any of our services, please contact our Nursing Team on 01949 860303.
Speaking to the Bereavement Support team at Dove Cottage Day Hospice helped me to cope
with the loss of my mother. Just being able to talk to someone about how I was feeling made
such a difference. They were very supportive and a big help.
