Bereavement Support | The Hospice of St. Francis

Bereavement Support

Bereavement is something which all of us experience at some time in our lives, and we each respond in different ways.

People often experience a range of emotions from disbelief, anxiety, guilt to deep sadness and pain. Sometimes people can feel more irritable, angry or confused whilst others can feel a sense of relief that the person has died particularly when there has been a period of long illness of pain. Grief can be a very individual process. 

Our Wellbeing and Family Support team provides a range of services (see below) for individuals, families and children of Hospice patients, in West Herts and South Bucks, who are affected by a loved one’s life-limiting illness both pre and post bereavement.
