Bereavement and counselling services
Coping with a life-limiting illness is not easy for the people affected by it or for their family and friends. Sometimes people need help and support to adapt to their diagnosis and find a way to live with their illness, which will also help them to get the most out of the time they have left.
The hospice is there to offer friendship and support to help people find the right path and enjoy what time they do have with their families and loved ones. For others, the hospice is a place to come and talk or just to be with others who are facing the same dilemmas and challenges.
After the death of a loved one we will get in touch with their relatives or carers to see how they are doing and offer them additional help. We are committed to offering on-going advice and support through facilitated support groups and one-to-one sessions for those who need it.
Our counsellors are able to support people at the hospice, in their own homes or at locations across Nottinghamshire.
