We have a new bereavement support group starting in October at All Hallows Hospital Day Care Centre.
“There are many myths surrounding grief – that time heals all wounds and that you must bury your feelings and be strong for others” says Chloe, “and people say that you have to let go and move on in your life, but they don’t tell you what you need to accomplish that.”
“Grief is the price we pay for loving. Everyone’s experience of grief is unique and there is no right or wrong way to grieve. In this group you will find people who care and understand what you are going through. The group is open to anyone who has lost a loved one – no matter how long ago or in what circumstances, and regardless of which funeral director was used – there’s no pressure to take part, if someone just wants to listen that’s fine. Grief isn’t something that’s often discussed and it can be a huge relief for people to talk to others about their experiences.”
