Our care

If you're bereaved

Our bereavement support is available to help anyone who’s relative or friend died under the care of St Barnabas House, whether in the hospice or in the community.

We understand how difficult it is when someone you love dies. Everyone has their own individual way of navigating bereavement and so we have a range of different services available to help you in the way that best suits your needs.

Individual support

We have lots of different people available to help you on a one-to-one basis. We have counsellors, bereavement visitors, social workers and a chaplain who would all be more than happy to hear from you.

Someone from our hospice team will start by having a conversation with you to work out how we can best meet your needs, and together we can agree on next steps to help you through this time.

Group support

Sometimes people find it comforting to be around others who are facing similar experiences. We hold social events throughout the year including quizzes, meals and entertainment where you’ll be able to meet other bereaved people.

Resources to help you

Download our Support following a bereavement leaflet which has more information about ways to deal with grief and how we can help.

The Cruse Bereavement Support website has lots of practical tips and emotional support.

Remembering your loved one

We have services and events for people to come together to remember those close to them that have died. These occasions are very moving and supportive, as everyone that comes along is doing so to remember loved ones.
