Peace Hospice Care has a team of fully qualified bereavement counsellors who volunteer their time to support anyone in the community who has been bereaved, no matter when the bereavement happened. They are available for eight free sessions of 1:1 individual counselling. Please contact Patient Services on 01923 330332 for more information and to request a self-referral form.  For those who need support immediately after losing a loved one, Peace Hospice Care has a team of volunteers who offer telephone support in the days and weeks following a bereavement.  Contact Laura Smith, Bereavement and Counselling Clinical Lead on 01923 330330 for more information.

There are also a number of informal support groups available both at the Hospice and in the community.  These include drop-in bereavement groups, creative therapy groups, social groups and meditation.  Please contact Patient Services for details about which groups are currently running and to book a place (not always necessary). 

Peace Hospice Care also have a team of Compassionate Neighbours who provide social and emotional support to people towards the end of life due to age or illness and also to people who are bereaved.  

Compassionate Neighbours can support people by:

Visiting regularly

Offering friendship, emotional support and a listening ear

Helping them to do the things they like doing

Helping them stay connected to the community as well as family and friends

If you, or someone you know, would like to be connected with a Compassionate Neighbour, please get in touch with the Compassionate Neighbours team to see if there are any Compassionate Neighbours in your area.
