One of the Hospice team will make contact with you following your loss; this is usually when you need support and information quickly. We recognise that the weeks and months after the loss of someone close can be very sad, confusing and difficult. Many people tell us that theydo not know what to do or where to start. You may feel overwhelmed by your thoughts and feelings, as well as
having to manage other practical and financial situations. The Family Support Team can offer:
- Individual support for adults and for children and young people within the family.
- Small groups, providing the opportunity for you to share feelings and experiences with others who are bereaved.
- Telephone support.
- Written information about the experience of bereavement.
- Advice about sources of help for financial worries and paperwork that can follow bereavement.
We run a Good Grief Group, which offers a supportive environment that provides you with a listening ear and opportunity for you to listen to others and share your experiences if you would like. It helps us to work out what type of support you may need.
The Good Grief Group is open to anyone in Blaenau Gwent who would like to attend. For further details, please contact the Family Support Team on 01495 717277
